Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

Review: Saga, Volume 5

Saga, Volume 5 - Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

OMG this is getting insane!  Marko is all sorts of fired up like I've never seen. And Dengo got in way over his head with the rebellion.  And it's Alanna, Klara and Hazel who are going to pay for his stupidity.  Just when we get the reunion we've been waiting for, there's another division.  I'm trying not to spoil.


In this Volume things are really heating it.  We've got three sides, one trying to keep the war going, one trying to stop it, and I'm not real sure about the third.  I'm starting to wonder if anyone even knows what they're even fighting for.  And my guess is the side that want to keep the war going is in it for either money or power, likely both.  I just have this sinking feeling that we'll ever get a happy ending here.
