Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Sharlene from Real Life Reading that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library. If you’d like to participate, just write up your post-feel free to steal the button-and link it using the Mr. Linky any time during the week. And of course check out what other participants are getting from their libraries.
Happy Wednesday! Claire has the link-up this week.
Some comics for this week. I’m still in the middle of quite a few other library ebooks so I didn’t want to borrow too much this week.
Moonstruck Vol 3: Troubled Waters – Grace Ellis, Shae Beagle (illustrator)
Spring comes to the supernatural town of Blitheton, which can only mean one thing: It’s time for the annual mermaid festival! Werewolf barista Julie meets one of her girlfriend Selena’s friends, but as per usual, things take a turn for the worst. Why does everything seem to go wrong for Julie and Selena? Is the universe conspiring against them, or is it something more sinister? More importantly, will their relationship survive once it starts taking on water?
Clueless: One Last Summer – Sarah Kuhn, Amber Benson, Siobhan Keenan (illustrator)
Cher, Dionne, and Tai set off for one last summer of footloose and fancy-free fashion and fun before college starts!
The class of 1997 has left Bronson Alcott High School for good, and as the weather heats up, Cher and besties Dionne and Tai head off for their last summer vacation adventure together before, ugh, REAL LIFE!
Picking up after Clueless: Senior Year, head back to the ’90s for summer fun and fashion from superstar writers Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex) and Amber Benson (The Witches of Echo Park), and illustrator Siobhan Keenan.
Supergirl: Being Super – Mariko Tamaki, Joëlle Jones, Sandu Florea
Flying and crushing coal into diamonds may come easy, but try popping a Kryptonian zit! Caldecott Honor-winning and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) teams with Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer) for a coming-of-age tale like you’ve never seen before. But while growing pains shake up Kara’s world, a deadly earthquake rocks the small town of Midvale beneath her feet! The Girl of Steel has a choice: let her world die, or overcome her adolescent insecurities and be super!
I hadn’t heard of this series until the Netflix movie came out – I haven’t actually seen that either, as I thought I might give the book a try first. Have you watched it?
