Tsana's October Status stressed. But I just handed in a deadline thing so theoretically I can relax and breath a little bit. For a few days. Maybe. The weekend at least.

I've been reading a lot of comics because they are kind of easier to deal with right now. I keep jumping around novels, reading several at once and not finishing anything because I'm reading each individual thing too slowly. So there have been a lot of comic book reviews in the past month, is what I'm saying.

What Have I Read?

As I said, mostly comics.

What Am I Reading?

A bunch of stuff. Most actively, I'm reading Nimona, a collected webcomic by Noelle Stevenson. It's surprisingly thick, as far as comic book collections go, so it's taking me a few days of reading in bed.

I'm also listening to the audiobook of The Book Thief by Markus Zusak during my commutes... which are not particularly long so it's been taking a while.

Aaaand... I'm still reading Blood and Dust by Jason Nahrung and Empire Ascendant by Kameron Hurley. The latter is a bit too heavy and difficult to deal with when I'm stressing about other stuff. Blood and Dust is a better fit.
