ANNOUNCEMENT
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.

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 bear with me as I still continue to recover.

Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope by Berkeley Breathed

Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope Bloom County Episode XI: A New Hope by Berkeley Breathed
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The reappearance of Opus & Co was one of the highlights of 2015 for me. I faithfully read Bloom County, Outland, and Opus (even when my local paper didn't carry the strips, my uncle would send them to me from his local paper), and didn't realize how much I missed Breathed's humor and heart until he brought his characters back to us. This is a perfect collection of the new series, and gives my hope for future editions.

Book Release: Vial Things by Leah Clifford


Leah Clifford has released the first book in her new Resurrectionist Novel series, Vial Things. I, myself, haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I enjoyed her Touch Trilogy, so I thought I'd let everybody know about her new book. Right now, it's only available as an ebook, so just click on the link below to check it out!

Happy reading!

Haunt, Vol 1 by Robert Kirkman and Todd McFarlane

Haunt, Volume 1 Haunt, Volume 1 by Robert Kirkman
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I think it's safe to say now that I don't like Robert Kirkman's storytelling. The Walking Dead left me cold (no pun intended), Outcast could have potential but not enough to keep me coming back for more, and this... Well, this is just bad. The pacing is wildly fast and sporadic, to the point that I felt I had missed huge chunks of story; none of the characters are all that fleshed out; Haunt feels like the love child of 90s Spawn and Venom. Basically, what this really feels like to me is all the terrible aspects of McFarlane's writing and character development with Kirkman valiantly trying to shine it up a bit, and it does not work. Needless to say, I will not be pursuing this series further, nor much else by Kirkman.
