Books I’m Reading 14

Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by Tim Hanley deals with what made Wonder Woman and Diana Prince different. It also compares other female lead characters in comics such as Batgirl and Lois Lane with Wonder Woman; he mentions how it all came about and the complications, what stuck, what changed, and what we can take away from this experience.

In Dreams by Erica Orloff is a Young Adult novel about a girl named Iris who is related to the gods… that is, Greek gods. Except, she doesn’t know it until certain events occur in her life that place her family in peril. It’s an interesting take on the gods theme.

Chasers of the Light: poems from the typewriter series is by Tyler Knott Greyson. His poems are typed on a typewriter with minimal editing. His photographs and found poems are part of this collection, too. He takes an image and writes about how it feels. He also takes pages from various books and searches for a poem using the words already on the page.
