Friday Fics Fix - Haunted


'Diego was still screaming but his voice was drowned and consumed, overtaken by the dead that hung around him, but Ben was screaming too...'

It's Umbrella Academy time!

...I think a lot of you will have guessed that I couldn't resist an Umbrella Academy fanfiction post for much longer (especially since I read a butt-tonne of Umbrella Academy fanfiction!)

Comics Wrap-Up - With A Pad and A Pencil Sat By His Side

It's Thursday, and somehow I end up talking more about DC than Marvel this week! 😯

Still, let's get some comics-y goodness! 😍

Friday Fics Fix - Light and Dark


'There was a noise somewhere but he couldn't make it out. He tried to call for help but it wasn't words, just a distressed sound and more tears.'

I love Oliver Queen, aka The Green Arrow, and the show he's the lead of - which is handily named Arrow. 😅

(Also handily, this was the first in the CW's DC series, known collectively as 'Arrowverse')




Oliver's had something of a rough life. 

I mean, the first 20-something years were pretty sweet - he was the priviliged trust fund party-boy with little regard for what substances he was sticking in his body, and the feelings of his romantic partners.

(I was gonna make a dodgy pun there, but thankfully resisted. If you can figure out what it would've been, then you've probably read as much fanftiction as I have! 😅)

Comics Wrap-Up - Nobody Knows What Lies Ahead

I think Thursday comes around quicker every week! 😅

Still, it's Thursday. And that means it's time for comics-y goodness!

Friday Fics Fix - Something Followed




'He can feel something else coming through, something uninvited.'

I love horror.

...You may or may not have noticed.

Generally speaking, the less-realistic and more fake-looking the horror is, the more I'm freaked out.

There are some notable exceptions (Pet Sematary *shudders*) but overall, the more realistic and convincing the horror is, the more I'm like: meh, it's a ghost.

Comics Wrap-Up - Girls Get Up Early and Stay Out Late



Comics Wrap-Up title image with manga-style woman handing her living-shadow a flower. Because that's what you do in that situation, clearly.


It's Thursday! The day that comes after Wednesday and before Friday!

It also means superheroes and comics-y goodness here on Dora Reads! 😀

Month in Review(s) - July 2019



July was too goddamned hot.


July - Gorffenaf title graphic with really big sun at the bottom and puffy clouds and stuff
I spelled Gorffennaf wrong in the graphic - oops! 😅


I'm not built for anything past 23C, and it hit, like 31C.

I know to some of you who live in hotter places than the UK, that's nothing but... it's really not nothing to us!

I'm not a nice person when I'm hot - I'm grumpy af and just want to make the world suffer.

Also, I live in Wales. Summer is traditionally one big rain shower - WTAF with this heat?!

Friday Fics Fix - Twists and Turns






'Trying to talk to Five is like talking to a brick wall that thinks it’s smarter than you and disappears as soon as it gets bored, which is quickly.'

Let's visit The Umbrella Academy!

(I will never tire of this show.)

Comics Wrap-Up - God is a Woman







Comics Wrap-Up title image with manga-style woman handing her living-shadow a flower



Once a year, there is the event of all comics-y-ness - San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

Unfortunately, most of us can't sell our souls to get to SDCC...

...but fortunately, the trailers the big companies release there trickle out over the next couple of weeks, and the big announcements are pretty much immediate!
