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.

Love: The Lion by Frédéric Brrémaud, illustrated by Federico Bertolucci

Love: The Lion Love: The Lion by Frédéric Brrémaud
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The third volume in the Love series of graphic novels, The Lion (I have not yet read the first, The Fox, or second, The Tiger), follows what I understand to be the same format as previous volumes: what we are silently presented is a day in the life of a lion, one who has no pride of his own and who is trying to find his way in the jungle that day. Presented with no text whatsoever, Brrémaud's writing and Bertolucci's illustrations are both to-the-point and poignant, showing what could happen in the jungle at any point in a day, and that it is not always pretty in nature.

I'll be looking for the rest of the volumes in this series.

I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher thru NetGalley for a fair and honest review.
