Recommend Me… Comics

Posted September 13, 2014 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Recommend Me... / 6 Comments

Recently I have started dipping into the world of comics and graphic novels after I heard that the most recent reboot of Ms Marvel was the first Pakastani-American Muslim superhero. This new change was exciting, and there was also the news that the new Captain American was going to be Falcon, an African American and Thor was soon to be a woman. Finally, when Archie died after he took a bullet protecting his gay friend, I knew that it was time to jump into the world of comics.

First problem I found was the sheer amount of comic book series out there. If I wanted to dive into the world of a particular superhero, I had no idea where to start, what is good and what is bad. I asked a fellow book blogger (Nylon Admiral), as I knew she was knowledgeable in the world of comics. I have been given a nice long list of Marvel Now comics to try and I am very pleased that they are mainly woman superheroes (the new Black Widow, She-Hulk, Storm).

However I think I am just getting started and I know I have plenty of great series to read. So I thought I would ask for some recommendations. Not just superheroes but I want to explore some interesting comics and superheroes. However I would like to dive into the world of some of the greatest superheroes as well. To help here are a list of comic books series I’m currently reading at the moment, and keep a look out for some reviews in the future.

Currently on my TBR

Recommend Me… Memoirs about Books

Posted October 5, 2012 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Recommend Me... / 0 Comments

I’m really loving book blogging and the people that comment on my blog so I thought it was about time that I start engaging with them a little more. So I decided to start a (semi) regular section where I can ask my readers what books I should read based on a topic I’m interested in exploring.

For this one I want people to recommend me a book memoir style book. As my blog is very autobiographical of my reading life, I was interested in reading some books based on their book journeys but I’m not sure what would be good. I do have ulterior motives for wanting to read this style of book and that is, I would like to know how someone would write a book like that. I love documenting my journey into books and I’ve had so much fun sharing it with you but I never understood how it could be done as a memoir but I’m very interested to see how.

So please, if you know of any good book memoir style books please let me know, I would love to read one soon.
