Here’s some fiction and nonfiction for ya. I will admit, this is one of the rare times I actually prefer the movie to the book. I tend to appreciate historical nonfiction provided it’s done right, but this one was only okay.
On the other hand, I really, really, really wanted to love this book. It was about four kingdoms that are named after seasons. It’s about a girl and her chakram. I mean…ONLY XENA HAS A CHAKRAM AND SHE IS BADASS. But ugh. It was really hard to get into this book, and when I got done, I just sat there going “meh.” I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.
