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.
I think my graphic novel binge is starting to slow down. I can only seem to read one volume (trade paperback) per day. This is a bit unfortunate, because I have a stack that I got from the library that I still want to read. Yep, I am reaching that point that I am not excited about the stack of books anymore. I am looking at it with a bit of dread. Luckily, I can always request the books from the library again, if I don't get them done in time.
The series that I am loving right now is Fables. The basic premise is that fairy tale characters were kicked out off their lands, and they are living in our world now. They are trying to keep a low profile. It is like Once Upon a Time, but it is far less cheesy. There are a few spin-off series, but I have heard that they are not as strong as Fables. I look forward to marathon-ing through the series.

From the Library
As you can probably guess, I got a huge stack of graphic novels this week.
I purchased two graphic novels this week. I bought Rat Queens: Sass & Sorcery volume 1 by Kurtis J. Wiebe (Author), Roc Upchurch by Matt Fraction, Chip Zdarsky
Shift by Hugh Howey: I am a little bit more than halfway through Shift now. If you enjoyed Wool, you will enjoy Shift. I must admit that I wished that I listened to Shift closer to listening to Wool, because I don't know if I should be recognizing certain character names and locations.
