I can’t believe we are in the last quarter of the year! Looking back, I say I’ve done fairly well at reading more of a variety of books this year. It used to be I stuck with romances-contemporary and not the historical, Mr. Romance Novel on the cover type of books. Not that it matters, but just to be clear. Or books for movies that I love to watch…and some TV stories, too.
I am so proud of myself for tackling classics as well as other genres. And as a reward, I’ve decided to go back to my old ways and read something television related.
It’s a series of graphic novels I’ve been putting off since…oh…2010 when the first six shows aired and left me saying, “Are you kidding me? That was the whole season?” The same show I tried to get into room 26A at Comic Con 2011 for the very first panel and the line was literally wrapped around the building…and that room seats like 50 people or some little number like that.
No, Effie, they weren’t that Saturday. Needless to say, I waited for another panel, True Blood. Which are also books I
should have could have chosen for this month…
Then, season after season, I’d make a promise to myself to read the graphic novels. And season after season, I’d chicken out because I didn’t want to read into where I was at watching wise. NO SPOILERS PLEASE! I like to go into my viewing with fresh eyes–movies and television alike. I don’t care if I know the story from the book before I read the book. That doesn’t bother me. But watching…
If you haven’t guessed what I’m reading this month by now, here’s another hint:
That’s the series! Plus, dead things that still move makes for a great Halloween related theme. (again, True Blood would work, too)
The Walking Dead graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman.
I know, Rick! This is exciting!
We have up to volume 24 of the graphic novel in-house. Should I make it that far, then volumes 25 & 26 are just a click or a bookstore away. I do know once I read the name Negan or see a flash of a bat named Lucille, I stop in my tracks and let the walkers pass me by…again, no spoilers! I’m DYING to know who didn’t make it to the new season. And by the time this posts we may know the answer (or are about to find out)…
So what’s on your October reading list? Something dead? Something haunting?
Don’t hesitate to share.
