Hey sorry for being a little late! We’re having a long weekend here in Japan and I always post a new page “at the end of my weekend” so it slipped my mind completely. But here it is!
I’ll be quick because we want to go for a walk, but: the project at work that was making me stressed is done (and done excellently, I would say) so I should be more chill from now on. Hopefully. I’ve also finished reading Spinning Silver and I liked it although the ending was disappointing. I really hoped for a better crafted resolution to the problem of the entire book and the final battle was not satisfying. Anyway, it was an interesting read throughout so I can still recommend it. I’m still listening to Blood Scion but my feelings about this book haven’t changed and I’m actually struggling to finish it. Military x battle royale does not work for me as a trope and I don’t understand why you would force your recruits to kill one another when you can just send them all to the front to die (if you care so little). On multiple occasions the book describes violent episodes that could be just cut out with no harm to the rest of the story because they make so very little impact on the main character at this point. The book is violent for the sake of being violent so I’m not super inclined to continue reading… I also started In the Shadow of Lightning and the prolog made me cringe but everything since then seems nice? I’m not even in 20% but I’m curious what else the book has to offer.
And finally, I also had a pleasure to read a new fanfic from Refugnic! A short story about Kasper and Sofia, inspired by the current scene. Give it a read! It’s cute 😀 Thank you so much Refugnic! Read on deviantArt | Read on replaycomic.com
