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.

The White Donkey: Terminal Lance by Maximilian Uriarte

The White Donkey: Terminal Lance The White Donkey: Terminal Lance by Maximilian Uriarte
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm not entirely sure that I understand everything that went on in Uriarte's The White Donkey: Terminal Lance (a lot of the military jargon was lost on me, and it wasn't always easy to distinguish between characters as many of them looked the same), but I think Uriarte manages to give the reader a normally unseen aspect of what it's like to be a Marine, and how that can affect you, regardless of how much action you see. The writing and art is good (even tho, as previously mentioned, it was sometimes hard to distinguish between some characters), but I probably won't read anything else by Uriarte based on his Terminal Lance online comic strip. Just isn't entirely my thing, but for military enthusiasts, I think this would be a great book.

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