Books? What are those? My reading consists entirely of superhero comics and fanfiction. (I am sadly not kidding.) Some highlights:

Batman, Incorporated and Batwing trades: Read more... )

A bunch of random Teen Titans volume 3 trades: The main thing I took away from this is that Gar and Vic should make out a lot. I assume they didn't have the sort of fanbase Tim/Kon did because they aren't as attractive. I'm sorry you're a furry, Gar. :/

But the final story arc of preboot Teen Titans bothered the hell out of me Image underneath! )

A while back, I was desperately bored and wanted something id-ficcy to read. I didn't want fanfic. I was too broke for terrible m/m romance novels. I'd seen an original slash story called "Captive Prince" mentioned a few places, but I'd never read it because I don't like slavefic. Still, that night, I was desperate. I started reading.

I finally made myself stop at 3am. This was not just idfic. This was not just slavefic. This was a well-written, well-crafted fantasy novel, just as good or better than anything I'd pick up published. The gay romance was just a bonus - I was reading for the plot. I'd started right before she put up the end of book two, which was a very satisfying conclusion in itself. I'm eagerly awaiting the start of book three.

Right now, however, the author is publishing the first two books as both paperbacks and ebooks. (They're still available for free on her lj as well.) I'm definitely getting the ebooks, and I recommend that you give it a try if it seems appealing. I will provide spoilers/warnings if anyone needs them!
