2016 March Reading List

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab – A decent sequel, several very good scenes, and great characters. The downside is not much happens in the first half, then too much time is spent with the tournament, and it ends with a cliffhanger, damn. 4/5 stars

Argos Doi, edited by Michael Haulica – Lucian Merisca’s story really stayed with me.

The Crow Comes Last by Italo Calvino – Beautiful short stories portraying the Italian cities and villages and life in war time. 4/5 stars

The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman – Someone finally did Snow White justice. Cool twist and some nice images, but in the end, there’s nothing memorable about the story. Gorgeous illustration if you’re a fan of that particular drawing style, which I’m not. 3/5 stars
