75 Books in 2015 – II and III (Spice & Wolf)

When was the last time I managed to post on consecutive days? For that matter, when was the last time I posted on consecutive weeks?

Also, how should I format post titles? Heck if I know.

Anyway, I can knock out graphic novels pretty quickly, as evidenced by getting through volumes nine and ten of Koume Keito’s adaptation of Spice & Wolf. The first thing I noticed about these volumes is that I had totally forgotten what was going on in the plot at this point; such are the dangers of letting so much time pass between reading installments of an ongoing story. Confusing things further is that it seems to be a little past where I am in the original novels (vol. 6), but Koume also makes a few changes here and there.

In any case, once I got my bearings, it’s a pleasant enough story, though I’d only recommend it to people who are already big fans of either the novels or the anime adaptation. The artwork is decent enough, but it’s not really worth getting excited about, either. It makes for an enjoyable break between longer, denser books (like Iron Kingdom and The Habsburg Monarchy, in my case), and that’s about it.
