Epic Update: August 8, 2022

Hello Epic Insiders and Happy Monday! No special announcements today, so let’s get into books:

What are you reading?

It’s Amanda again, back for more chats about what I’m reading this week! Things have cooled down a little in the last few days which has been great, especially since I’m moving this week and packing in the heat is not my favorite activity in the world. I haven’t had a ton of time to sit down and read this week, which definitely IS one of my favorite activities. But that’s okay! My books aren’t going anywhere (except across town to my new apartment of course).

I did manage to finish up I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick before I got too busy with packing. I won’t spoil the ending, but I can say it was a solid summer read with fun twists!

And since I find reading graphic novels is great when you’re strapped for time and attention span, I also reread the first volume of Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang. It’s one of my favorite series and it’s been on my mind recently since the TV show adaptation is being released on Amazon Prime soon. I’m normally wary of TV or movie adaptations of books I love since they tend to fall short of the book in my opinion. But the casting for this adaptation seems so spot on that I’m willing to give it a shot. Fingers very crossed!

Once I’m more settled into my new place, I’m planning on starting either Do You Dream of Terra-Two? byTemi Oh or Persephone Station by Stina Leicht. I’m clearly in the mood for some sci-fi spacey adventures!
