#MarvelAThon Phase Three Wrap-Up

Guess what? I finished #MarvelAThon! That’s 21 books total, and this is a wrap-up of the last 9, so let’s start with some links.

In the last two rounds, 4 out of 12 books I read were graphic novels, and in this round, it was 3 out of 9.

phrasethree1

CIVIL WAR – A book about rivalry or enemies
Brave Chef Brianna by Sam Sykes
This is a cute graphic novel about a girl who has to compete with her brothers to have the best restaurant and carry on the family legacy – only she ends up opening her restaurant in a city of monsters, which leads to some trouble.

DOCTOR STRANGE – A book that involves medicine
The Origins of Heartbreak by Cara Malone
🏳️‍🌈 This is a lesbian medical romance novel that I unfortunately didn’t like much, especially because of the way it treats antidepressants. But hey, it fit the prompt.

GOTG2 – A book set in space
Lando by Charles Soule
The ending of this graphic novel absolutely destroyed me, okay? It also reminded me that I’m a really casual Star Wars fan because I have no idea who half the people here were.

SPIDER-MAN – A young adult book involving secrets
Omen Operation by Taylor Brooke
🏳️‍🌈 This book has a bisexual female protagonist, and a beginnings of a polyamorous quad with two guys and two girls. One of the guys is also panromantic demisexual, according to the author. Unfortunately, the plot didn’t impress me much, but it certainly involved secrets. Read my review here.

THOR: RAGNAROK – A popular book
Lumberjanes Vol. 1 by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis & Faith Hicks
🏳️‍🌈 This is a graphic novel that everyone keeps recommending me, with a strong female cast including some sapphic girls. Honestly, I wasn’t very impressed by the first volume, but I have three others and a bunch of specials, so we’ll see next month if it improves.

INFINITY WAR – A book that fulfills multiple challenges
Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann
🏳️‍🌈 This was one of my most anticipated reads for this year, with a biromantic asexual protagonist who is also #ownvoices for black representation – and female, thus the two challenges. It didn’t live up to my expectations, but I still think it’s an important book.

phasethree3

BLACK PANTHER – #ownvoices with black main character
Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor
What better book to read for the Black Panther challenge than a fantasy set in Nigeria with a wonderful female protagonist that Shuri would be proud of? (Review to come in the first days of July, so keep an eye on this blog!)

CAPTAIN MARVEL – A book with a female MC
Blackout by Kit Mallory
🏳️‍🌈 Most of my books this round had female MCs, but Blackout was one I read for the book club I’m in, so I decided to list it here. This was a dystopian young adult novel set in the UK, with very European elements.

AVENGERS 4 – A book you don’t know anything about
You’re You by Mette Bach
🏳️‍🌈 I saw this book on NetGalley in the LGBT section and downloaded it because it had a questioning bisexual protagonist. It was an okay read and I think it handled the questioning part well. Read my review here.

That’s about it! Did you participate in MarvelAThon? How did you do?
