Books Reviewed: May 2014

Posted on: June 27, 2014

I fell a little behind this month on getting this up, but here it is. Remember, these are the books I reviewed during the month of May of 2014 on my personal blog, The Itinerant Librarian. This does not reflect necessarily everything I read last month. As always, if any of my readers read one of these, feel free to come back and comment. Links go to the review unless otherwise noted.

  • If you are a Star Wars reader, you may be interested in Joe Schrieber’s Star Wars: Maul: Lockdown. This author is also know for his Star Wars novels Death Troopers and Red Harvest, both of which I have read. My reviews to those are found at this review as well.
  • Like erotica? Do you enjoy oral sex (practicing it or reading about it, or perhaps both)? Then this can be the book for you. Rachel Kramer Bussel edits Going Down: Oral Sex Stories. The editor has chosen a variety of stories that showcase a diversity of ways to find enjoyment in that most intimate form: oral sex.
  • Like spy thrillers? Enjoy science fiction? Then you might want to give Zero, Volume 1: An Emergency a try.
  • For this thief, it started with stealing a mask as a prank. Check out my review of Dream Thief, Volume 1. John Lincoln, unemployed, messed up, with a dysfunctional girlfriend, and now having strange dreams, is not doing well.
  • The folks at Zenescope re-envision The Wizard of Oz in their Grimm Fairy Tales: Oz. Dorothy has certainly grown up, and she is kicking butt.
  • I also reviewed Transformers: Dark Cybertron, Volume 1. In this volume, Shockwave brings forth his plan to bring back Nova Prime, a Cybertronian tyrant long ago exiled that many think is gone for good. It is the culmination of a 6-million year wait.
  • This year is the 75th anniversary of Batman, so it is a good year to read Batman comics. Part of DC Comics’ The New 52 series, Scott Snyder gives us a new look at Batman’s origin story in Batman, Volume 4: Zero Year–Secret City.
  • Fan of The X-Files? Miss the television show? IDW continues its run of the comic book adaptation in The X-Files, Season 10, Volume 2.
  • Another Star Wars book. This time we have Honor Among Thieves, part of the series Empire and Rebellion.
  • Scott Snyder is also writing what I consider one of the best comics series out there now. For fans of vampires who like their vampires to be scary, American Vampire is a series to check out. During the month of May 2014, I reviewed American Vampire, Volume 6.
  • And finally this month, we look at a popular internet meme. You have seen Grumpy Cat on the Internet, now you can read his book: Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book.
