My last 5 books: Lots of YA, a bit of fantasy and a bit of comics
2. Insurgent, by Veronica Roth. I wasn't exactly extatic about Divergent. It was ok, but I still felt like I needed to know what happened next. So here were are, three years later and I'm finding out what happened next. So basically, I liked this one a lot more than both Divergent and Allegiant put together. I only have two issues with it. 1). Tris is such an idiot all the frickin time. 2). The translator makes Tobias sound like he's 12 y/o when talking about their relationship. But other than that? Top notch action-filled YA goodness.
4. Fables and Reflections, by Neil Gaiman. The sixth installment of the Sandman series. I love these comic books, but since they are comic books they are just short stories with recurring characters, with Dream making an appearance in every single story. My favourites in this installment were the one during the French revolution, the story of how Orpheus lost his love, and the story of Baghdad's lost glory. They were all so amazing (I'm pretty sure the Orpheus story is almost completely taken from an Ancient Greek legend, but it's been so many years since I read those)
