September 2013 Review

September’s been a busy month: it marks the start of the semester at my graduate school, and there’s been a flurry of activity.  Things are finally starting to settle back into a nice rhythm.

If you didn’t catch it in my post earlier this month, I dropped by the Comics Squee podcast for their September episode!  Drop by their site, check out an episode or two, and let them know what you think.  You can also follow Comics Squee on Facebook and Twitter.

Luckily, I didn’t have too many articles this month for Girls in Capes – you can check out what I did this month and comment on whatever you like.

You can also find my review of THE DAEDALUS INCIDENT here on my personal blog.  It’s a great book, and I’d definitely recommend it!

This month, I read just five books for the 100 Books in 2013 challenge: PARASITE by Mira Grant, the art book for The Legend of Korra Book One: Air, THE DAEDALUS INCIDENT by Michael J. Martinez, Raina Telgemeier’s middle-grade graphic novel DRAMA, and an advanced copy of Ann Leckie’s upcoming military SF novel ANCILLARY JUSTICE.  Each of the books I’ve read this month have been fantastic, and I don’t think I’ll be able to pick a favorite!  I can definitely say all three adult SF books – PARASITE, DAEDALUS, and ANCILLARY JUSTICE – are worth picking up.  Each one features excellent world-building, great writing, and fascinating characters.

In October, I’ll be visiting the Collingswood Book Festival in Collingswood, New Jersey as part of the Rathalla Review staff.

The October issue of Girls in Capes launches tomorrow, October 1, and I think you can appreciate the Editor’s Letter.  You can find that and additional articles in the upcoming issue.
