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!
2017 edit
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.

2017 edit #2
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.

From Amazon:
Old soldiers may fade away, but so do young mutants! On the verge of disintegration, Kitty Pryde seems resigned to her doom - but the X-Men will do anything to save her, even bargain with a worse doom... Doctor Doom! What stunning secret prevents Mr. Fantastic and the Fantastic Four from saving the day instead? Is he terrified of failing because his greatest failure, the fateful rocket flight, might have really been his greatest success? Do the answers all come down to wunderkind Franklin Richards? Plus: the classic tale of the two teams' original face-off in Marvel's early era! Collects Fantastic Four vs. the X-Men #1-4, and Fantastic Four #28.

Not a whole lot to tell here. This was basically an excuse to put out another miniseries to try to make some more money disguised as a loosely written plot to heal Shadowcat from the injuries she incurred during the Mutant Massacre. It all feels a little dated and forced, but it keeps the story moving along from the Mutant Massacre.

Only recommended for diehard X-Men fans. Like me. I'm such a geek sometimes.
