Sauntering Vaguely Downward - Nessa L. Warin I received this book free through the Goodreads First Reads program.I really enjoyed this books. Both main characters are interesting, and well drawn. Their romance is sweet and honest without many of the worlds collide clichés that are so common these days. I like the balance of power between the two, and the fact that neither feels the need to dominate the other to prove some sort of "manhood" is a nice change of pace. The supporting characters are colorful, and feel like real people instead of cardboard cuts outs put in to either support or hinder the main character's love. I think the setting was one of my favorite aspects. I've never been to Dragon*Con, but I've been to some anime cons, and I love how well the author manages to capture the thrill of being at a con, and translates that into the character’s connection. It was more than just a backdrop, it was an integral part of the story, and I appreciated that.
