Million dollar question: Will I read any? Probably not. The NYT seems just like movie critics, but for books... they don't see real talent in providing the escape of reality. They just look for what has a message and give that 7 thousand stars or thumbs up, when really... it's boring as hell.
If I had to pick 2 to read, which ones? I have to choose 2?!!!! Really? I can pick 1. Kick-Ass. I will be seeing the movie, and I think it's an awesome concept that's loosely based off of real people--without the killing of course. Shadow Hare is the main guy of this underground bounty hunter clan. Plus, it's pictures... so I don't really have to suffer through anything major :D (#2 is non-existent from this list).
