Sunday Post (134) – Read ALL the Books

Sunday Post
The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~

It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

This week was a great week for the store. Business picked up and I saw some new faces that I hope come back…and others that I hope never grace my doorstep again but it’s was definitely the pick up I needed to feel secure about this last month.

For some reason I’ve also been dying to read anything I can get my hands on…probably because I looked at my Goodreads challenge and panicked. I was 9 books behind at the beginning of the month. 6 books behind at the beginning of this past week. I’m happy to say I’m only 1 book behind now and my bookshelf thanks me for it.

I’m on Tsu! Feel free to follow me or send me a friend request! So far I’m really enjoy the simplicity and being able to see everyone’s posts.

Somewhere at the end of the time, all the gods of the universe are enslaved, working to build a machine that will forever change the face of creation. What is the Godbomb? And what can Thor do to stop it? As Gorr’s master plan continues to unfold, all hope for divinity is lost as Thor finds himself in chains alongside his fellow gods.

As the dark origin of Gorr is revealed, along with the truth behind his bloody quest to butcher the gods, three time-bending Thors unite to lead an army of slave gods in the fight to save all of divinity. But will it all be for naught as the clock ticks down and the massive Godbomb is triggered at last? And after the dust clears, what will be left of the universe’s divinity?

The God Butcher has made his mark on the universe and now has most of the gods enslaved on his world. They toll day and night to build something called a Godbomb, and it isn’t until Thor arrives that things start getting shaken up (of course…). This has turned into an pretty epic storyline, with thankfully little to no filler issues thus far.

Gorr is an awesome nemsis. He questioned the right of the Gods and wants the people of the universe to be able to stand on their own without them…which sounds fairly reasonable, given that Thor has screwed some stuff up just by being on Earth. However it’s coming from a dark and selfish place, and it’s more of a “you ignored my pleas, so now I’ll get rid of you” kind of thing. Thor (present) is having a bit of trouble with this one and we finally get to see the three timelines in this series converge bringing all three versions of Thor together.

We do get to meet Thor’s granddaughters who I find somewhat hilarious, and it was nice to have them along since they brought a bit of humor to the mix. Though three Thors were humorous in the amount of snark older Thor gives the younger two.

Overall it’s a solid storyline for Thor in my opinion, and I can’t wait to share my thoughts for the next volume which includes the well known baddie Malekith.
