After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

27. X-Men: Endangered Species by Mike Carey, et al.



Title: X-Men: Endangered Species
Series: X-Men
Authors: Mike Carey, et al.
Copyright: 2008
Pages: 192
Publisher: Marvel
Twitter: @marvel
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 4/5 stars
Finished: 4-5-09

After the events of House of M, there are less than 200 mutants alive in the world, and they are looking at the extinction of their species. The X-Man Beast decides to take it upon himself to find a cure for this problem, crossing boundaries he never thought he'd cross to find that cure.

It is an interesting premise; what lengths would you go to ensure the survival of your species? I think the X-Men comics have been wallowing for some time now, not knowing what direction to go in, but I think the stories and ideas that can come out of this graphic novel are a good starting point.
