Welcome to my edition of the Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Sunday Post meme and Tynga's Reviews' Stacking the Shelves meme. Check out what I have been doing this week (and will do next week) and my book haul.
The graphic novel reading has continued this week. I have to admit that my favorite of the week was Afterlife with Archie, which was so much fun. I grew up spending all of my money on Archie comics and candy, so the nostalgia factor was high, but the volume was still strong. I can see adding the series to my pull list. ::sigh:: I need to keep track of how many comics I am getting from the store. It is so easy to spend $5-10 a week and not think about it.
When I have been driving, I have been listening to lots of urban fantasy audio books. Urban fantasy books (at least the ones that I have been listening to) tend to have a lot of action and lots of short scenes, so short listening stints of 15-20 minutes work really well.

From the Library
I picked up a stack of graphic novels from the library, which I am not going to list (too many to list), Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins, and These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.
I purchased two books this week. I got Midnight Blue-Light Special by Seanan McGuire (audio book) and Afterlife with Archie volume 1 by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland: This is a pretty fun audio book so far. It is taking a different approach to the standard zombie story (the book is from the perspective of a functioning zombie).
