The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone ByeThe Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye by Robert Kirkman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Go here https://www.goodreads.com/review/show… to see my overall review of this first book (paperback). But I wanted to give my two cents on the Kindle version which I read right after the paper version.

I know there is a generation that at this moment thinks this is a chintzy way to read a comic book. They will change their minds when they have weak eyes like mine. It took me two days to get through the paperback. The font so light and thinned lined. My eyes hurt.

I am in love with the Kindle version!!!!! <–enough exclamation marks? Frame by frame and moving my just the tap of a finger I could read it in an hour! And another tap and you can make the frame larger to see every inch of detail.

As my son and I start collecting the paper versions for him, I’m gathering the Kindles for my eyes. I can’t wait for payday!

The Magic of Friendship SnowThe Magic of Friendship Snow by Andi Cann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a cute picture book for winter. The pictures are lovely and the story was sweet. I think my only problem was how the girl could give the snowman to her human friend when it wasn’t winter. But maybe I missed something. I read it just before bed and I was so sleepy. But nice to read that story of learning to be a friend.

The Hierophant's Daughter (The Disgraced Martyr Trilogy, #1)The Hierophant’s Daughter by M.F. Sullivan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Confusion mixed with action. I kept reading past understanding what was going on. I blamed using text-to-speech as often I am not sure what is going on in books. I miss the cues of a new chapter and who it is dedicated to. Or misinterpret what is it all about. So I’ll own what I didn’t get.

If a book is confusing I often keep reading and the context will bring me up to date. Or I will give it up. This book had enough action that I thought I’d stick it through. I got into it enough to care about the main character but I just didn’t understand the rules of the game as the main character seemed confused about it all, too. For the confusion, I’m rating it one star.

I’m grateful to NetGalley to have the chance to read it. It just wasn’t for me.

Oh, hey, I think I’ll move this up to three stars. I just remembered how diverse the characters were, the main character grieving her wife was maybe what pulled me in and made me care.
