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.

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.
