Started reading Worm yesterday, a web serial about a girl who can control bugs and wants to be a superhero, falling in with a group of teenage supervillians. It’s reviewed very highly at Web Fiction Guide. So far, I’m engrossed enough to have been reading it all day. After trying to read two YA books that I just couldn’t get into, even though they were both highly rated, it’s good to have something like this to read.
I’m liking the different power sets represented and the battle descriptions best. Of course, I’m not even halfway through what’s been written so far, and the serial is still running.
Also, spent some time this week playing Fallen London, where I’m currently collecting Ridiculous Hats and getting rid of my nightmares, all the while preparing to sneak into the Shuttered Palace. It’s set in a gritty London underground type place with lots of shady activities and, like, golems. Actually, I have no idea what’s going on. Though I’m pretty sure I like it. Fallen London is a browser game where you unfortunately can only use ten moves at a time and each move is replenished after ten minutes–which means there’s a lot of waiting time between actions, so you can’t play though the game all at once. I’m still playing though, so I guess their strategy is working.
