Blood on SnowBlood on Snow by Tom Johansen

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

not sure what it was that made me want to read this book nor am I entirely sure how I feel about it afterwards so I'll just go into what the story is about.

This story is told from the POV of Olav, a dyslexic, yet oddly poetic "fixer" (hit man) with a knack of falling for the opposite sex rather quickly. This gets him into deep trouble when his employer, one of Oslo's powerful crime bosses tasks Olav with killing his wife.

Through out the story Olav reflects on his upbringing and his current situation. Towards the end there's a nice bit of reflection that was probably the main thing I enjoyed.

(view spoiler)[ He's been wounded and doesn't have long to live and ends up at the store of a girl he protected. He seems to have this convo where he comes clean with his fear of not being able to make her happy which was why they were never truly together.

What I didn't realize was that moment only happened in his head, a happy moment before he died. On the flipside that same woman is reflecting on her feelings for him. (hide spoiler)]

Attack on Titan, Vol. 14 (Attack on Titan, #14)Attack on Titan, Vol. 14 by Hajime Isayama

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As stated in a previous review of this book series, it would really benefit from being in color, especially the action packed scenes. In this volume Erwin Smith, Commander of the Survey Corps is trying to put together a revolution against the royal government thus restoring the Reiss (Historia) family as the true royal bloodline. Of course this wont be an easy feat and lives will be lost.
