Slackers Run in the Family…


I’ve been reading, I swear it!! I accepted this challenge for 2 reasons: 1. I’m traveling for the summer and have no TV 2. In having no TV but having internet, I want to make sure I don’t spend the whole summer in a YouTube wormhole, which so often happens to us all. OH! and 3. I’m a new mom and want to make sure I’m doing something for myself every day. Even if it’s reading one page.

The List:

1. Paper Towns – John Green

2. The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold

3. Looking for Alaska – John Green

4. An Abundance of Katherines – John Green (I know there’s a pattern here, I want to read all his books before they’re all turned into teenage wasteland films)

5. Deadpool: Secret Invasion

6. Saga

7. Civil War – Marvel

8. Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation – Bill Nye

9. & 10. His Dark Materials – Phillip Pulman (It’s a trilogy, but I’m counting it as 2 books because it’s more young adult stuff)

**5,6&7 are hardcover graphic novels

  1. Nice list! Welcome to the party =)

    Looking forward to a comparitive analysis of all your John Green books!!

    Also, The Lovely Bones is a wonderful book– it is a tough read, but well worth the emotional turmoil.

    I have never read a graphic novel before, and so I wanted to put one on my list this year to see what it’s like!!



    1. Thank you! Lovely Bones is really tough. I lock my doors when I open it. That’s the sign of a good book though!


  2. Are you new to Saga or have you been reading it the last year? I am patiently (impatiently!) waiting for the next volume to come out. I read a lot of comics and graphic novels (mostly independent non marvel/dc) if you ever need some suggestions! Pulmans His Dark Materials were a trilogy I devoured. The movie adaptation is a pale pale shade of the books. I look forward to hearing what you think of them.


    1. I’m new to saga but my husband is the one who suggested it. He’s in love. His Dark Materials is a trilogy I’ve been meaning to read, and since we named our daughter Lyra, it seemed necessary.
