My reading output (input?) this year was better than last year. But it coulda should’ve been much better. Standouts from the reading diary:

  • Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver — I maybe should’ve read this when the Lovely Wife suggested it before agreeing to follow my wife to rural Northland;
  • Ratatouille (2007 draft) by Brad Bird;
  • Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses 007–029 by David Lapham — I thought this sprawling small crime epic was consigned to the unfinished classics section of comic history until I tripped over this at the local library;
  • Garlic and Sapphires by Ruth Reichl;
  • Lazarus X+66 001–005 by Greg Rucka, Eric Trautmann, Steve Lieber and Michael Lark — a very welcome salve while the main Lazarus series is on hold;
  • Atlanta S01E01 by Donald Glover;
  • Te Puhi by Cian Elyse White — a beguiling slice of New Zild history about our first Māori Miss New Zealand;
  • The Pissy Tits Gang by Rosie Howells;
  • The Walking Dead 162–174, including Here’s Negan!, by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard, Cliff Rathburn — the Negan character arc in the Walking Dead comic is a masterclass in humanity, patience  and compassion.
