Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Scott Pilgrim (Volume 1): Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life: Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life v. 1

Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life - Bryan Lee O'Malley Awesome. Though the scifi/fighting addition tacked onto the end was odd and a little jarring--previous to that it was a very "ordinary" story. Nerdy dude dating a high school girl, dreams about a different girl, sees said girl at a party, falls in love with said girl, stalks--I mean, finds her, and so on. Then suddenly at the end it twists and turns into a different plot entirely.The real charm here is the characters. Wallace, Scott's roommate was my personal favorite.This was the color edition, which was lovely. Having not read it in black and white, I can't make a comparison review, but I always prefer comics in color.thanks to netgalley for a copy!
