April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Attack on Titan, Vol 1 by Hajime Isayama

Attack on Titan, Volume 01 Attack on Titan, Volume 01 by Hajime Isayama
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Not sure that this is for me. The story was just ok, the art was a little less that just ok - I guess I just don't get the hype? Maybe I need to watch the anime? The main character was obnoxious as hell, freaking out at the drop of a hat over every and anything, and everybody else seemed like just background noise (except mysterious Mikasa, the kickass girl who will inevitably save the day every time because ineffectual male protagonist will be too busy freaking out ad nauseam).

I'm going to give this one more volume before I make up my mind for sure, but so far, I just don't get how this is as popular as it is.
