Weekend Reading [07/20-07/22] :: Superhero Love & Whatcha Readin'?



TGIF. Seriously. I just had the most rotten week in my personal life! You know it's a bad one when you can't read because your brain won't stop chewing on your personal drama. The good news is that I find some kind of solace in the simplicity of a new week beginning. But first, the weekend!

Today I've got a hot date with the hubs and some friends for a matinee of The Dark Knight Rises. I'm actually not all that excited about it the way I was for the last one. The hubs still teases me because I have a hard time watching Heath Ledger movies without getting sad over his untimely passing. Yeah, I'm the chick who was crying at the last Batman movie because of it. I appreciate great talent and we were the same age, I was a fan and it was tragic. Blah, blah. But I am really stoked to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt—hello, talent!—in this one.

Anyways, anyone else planning a theater visit this weekend? Do you guys love superhero stories as much as I do? I'm actually considering doing an event related to non-comic book superhero books next year. I'm noticing more and more cropping up. In fact, I just got my hands on a Carina Press ARC that I'm looking forward to reading, The Superheroes Union: Dynama by Ruth Diaz. Admittedly, this will be my first time reading a lesbian romance but orientation ain't no thing with me. I hope it will do well so Carina will buy more superhero romances! If I had any talent (or time for that matter) I think I'd try my hand at writing a superhero series because it's one genre you could do so much with.

This weekend I'm actually reading steampunk romance! Zoe Archer's Skies of Fire is pretty good so far. I'm really liking Christopher and Louisa, they have an enjoyable chemistry that is carrying the somewhat slow action. If I can get it finished (cross your fingers for me that I do) then I can finally curl up with one of my most anticipated reads this year—Lucid! I don't read a lot of indie novels (I seem to prefer small press of late) but highly encourage YA paranormal lovers to add this series to their wishlist. Nara and Ethan really climbed under my skin and made a home in my readerly heart. It's been such a difficult wait and I finally got my review copy just as I had taken on a few review requests so I have had to wait until I got them finished first.

And what are y'all reading this weekend? Good stuff I hope. Sometimes I read negative reviews of books I loved and still find myself appreciating why other readers didn't like it. Everyone has a few deal breakers right? On that note dear readers I am off to get ready to go to the movies where I shall nosh unreasonable amounts of popcorn and drink two sips of the soda that will inevitably ruin the middle of the movie for me with a pee-pee-dance. :P -- Rhi
