In Progress: A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

In Progress: A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin

I've been reading through A Storm of Swords for over a month now, and I thought it'd be fun to share my thoughts on it so far. I give an overview of my history with the series and my thoughts on the first half of the book.

Overall, I'm really enjoying it. It's a bit of a slow burn since I know where the plot's heading, but I appreciate how the book goes into much more detail than the show.

Onward to finishing it!

Dai Dark Vol 1 & 2 Review

Dai Dark Vol 1 & 2 Review

I check out the first two volumes of Q Hayashida's latest manga series Dai Dark. It's a darkly funny romp through space with an eccentric band of characters. I enjoyed the first two volumes, and I'm curious to see if the story picks up and goes places.

While I wait for the next volume, I'm going to check out Hayashida's previous series Dorohedoro!
