My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s June 2015 Wrap Up

June 2015 Reading List

Black Box by Jennifer Egan

This short story, originally released through a series of tweets intended to be “mental dispatches” from the narrator, tells the story of a female spy in the not-so-distant future.

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

When I first began reading about shape-shifting Nimona, who becomes sidekick to villain Lord Ballister Blackheart, I thought I was reading a comedic fantasy. And then it hit me with all the feels. A must read for everyone.

Lady Killer by Jamie Rich

This series from Boom Studios tells the story of a 1950’s housewife who is actually a deadly assassin. Apparently I could not get enough of bad ass females this month.

The Wicked + the Divine Vol. 2: Fandemonium by Kieron Gillen

Every ninety years, 12 people discover they are reincarnated gods. They are loved and two years later they die. This time around the gods are popstars. If you’re not caught up on the series, get started because the ending of this volume is scream-worthy.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy: Nothing But Shadows by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

Bridging the gap between her Shadowhunter series, Cassandra Clare does double duty here, wrapping up the stories in The Mortal Instruments and introducing us to new ones in her upcoming trilogy The Last Hours.

Sex Criminals Vol. 2: Two Worlds, One Cop by Matt Fraction

I see what you did there Matt Fraction. Suzie and John have the power to stop time when they orgasm, which is all well and good except that now the cops are after them. The sex cops.

Wytches by Scott Snyder

This horrifying thrill ride re-imagines the mythology of witches. Equal parts terrifying artwork and a layered plot make this a definite read, especially if you’re a Scott Snyder fan.

Angela: Asgard’s Assassin Vol. 1: Priceless by Kieron Gillen

Loki and Thor’s long-lost and later found sister goes on a wild adventure across the Marvel Universe, crossing paths with her legendary brothers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, all while kicking ass and not caring enough to take names.

Chrononauts by Mark Millar

Written by the author of Kick-Ass and illustrated by the author/illustrator of the amazing Punk Rock Jesus comes a story of time travel and the men who abuse it in the most hilarious way possible. Sorry Morrissey.
