After reading 51 stories last month, I dialed it back a bit this month. Standout reads included two works by Christopher Golden: his Runaways novel, an original story based on the comic book, which is now a live-action series on Hulu; and Blood of the Four, an epic fantasy novel, the latest collaboration between Christopher Golden and Tim Lebbon. Read my review of Blood of the Four.
- and here are my favorite lines from the Runaways novel:
...They weren't worth it.
But her childhood? The beautiful thing her life had been in the time before the truth?
That was worth crying over.
Karolina glanced at her friends - Nico and Chase, Molly and Gert and Old Lace. Her family. [...] The sight [of Molly] ignited a spark of love in Karolina's heart for this girl, this sister the harsh world had given her.
