Reading Roundup Wrapup: April 2017

Pick of the Month: The Lost Embassy by Adam Fergusson. This was another tough one; I read a few very good books but none that tipped over into outright greatness. So really, I was making a nearly random choice between The Lost Embassy, Saga, Book One, and Hot Death, Cold Soup. I went with The Lost Embassy in the end (review coming next month), a surprisingly delightful combination of farce and tragedy.

All books read:
1. The Transformers: Robots in Disguise, Volume 5 by John Barber
2. Hot Death, Cold Soup: Twelve Short Stories by Manjula Padmanabhan
3. Doctor Who: Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday by Justin Richards
4. The All New Atom: The Hunt For Ray Palmer! by Gail Simone with Roger Stern
5. The Transformers: Dark Cybertron, Volume 1 by John Barber and James Roberts
6. Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
7. The Lost Embassy by Adam Fergusson
8. Wiped!: Doctor Who’s Missing Episodes by Richard Molesworth
9. Spider-Man: The Lizard Sanction by Diane Duane
10. The Book of Gin by Richard Barnett
11. The Multiversity by Grant Morrison
12. Convergence: Crisis, Book 1 by Stuart Moore, David Gallaher, Marc Andreyko, Marv Wolfman, and Jeff Parker
13. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
14. Saga, Book One by Brian K. Vaughan

All books acquired:
1. Symphony for the City of the Dead: Dmitri Shostakovich and the Siege of Leningrad by M. T. Anderson
2. Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cold Equations, Book I: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack
3. The Multiversity by Grant Morrison
