This has been awhile in coming. There never seemed time to input these new books we got for Valentine's Day. LL has Goodman's similar book on the Victorians but I've not read that one either. Shigeru Mizuki is an amazing mangaka (manga artist) who's well known Showa series tells the history of Japan before, during, and after WWII. I've started reading it through the library, so I'm interested to see how he handles Hitler. London was LL's present for Valentine's Day (mine was colored pencils for my adult coloring book!). I do want to read it...but it's kind of intimidating!
I also got library holds today (too many!!!). That's not even counting the ebooks and audiobooks I have. Yeah. Juggling books again. I picked up The Blind Assassin thanks to BrokenTune's posts. I'm looking forward to trying it out. I read the first two volumes of My Hero Academia in December and absolutely loved it! Note: do not read the second book unless you have the third by your side. It has one of the evilest cliffhangers I've ever seen. I can not wait for the anime later this year! Turning Japanese and The Science of Sherlock Holmes are my attempt to start clearing up my Want To Read list from the library. We'll see if it works! The Great Detective caught my eye as I was browsing and I learned about Ophelia from Grimlock's recent post. Back to the Front came from both wanting to clear some books off my list and listening to the Bess Crawford series as well as The Modern Scholar WWI lectures.
So many books! We'll see if I can get through them all.
