Since Norse mythology is equally as outrageous and entertaining as Greek mythology, I hope there will be a strong presence in AC: Valhalla as well.
There are times I wish it were forbidden to adapt a story before it's finished. That an author should be allowed to complete their story in peace before other writers begin to change it to fit a new medium.
I tried to read The Simarillion about fifteen years ago. I opened it, read maybe five pages and gave up. One of my reading goals this year was to try again. I did. It turns out The Silmarillion is not as scary as I thought.
The next show on my list is, Killing Eve. The anticipated second season premiered on April 7th. I had hoped to have this post up by then; unfortunately, my sometimes temperamental back objected to that idea. So, we're now two (almost three) episodes into the new season, and so far it's looking good!
One thing I really enjoy about the writing is that, because of the very different personalities and lives these two women lead, it never feels repetitive. For example, a part of the book takes place in Venice, you have chapters from Villanelle's POV, and then you have Eve retracing her steps, and yet it feels new.
The Witcher video game trilogy is one of my favorite storytelling experiences of all time. I've sunk hundreds, upon hundreds of hours into that world and Geralt of Rivia is more dear to me than most living men. That's why it's so embarrassing to admit, that although I've played all three games numerous times, and own more than one (or twenty) collectible item, I've not given the book series it's based on the attention it deserves.
I thought it would be fun to share my journey through this universe by reviewing the books as I go.
