If you're a fantasy fan, and if you're on book twitter, you will not have escaped the fact that the Amazon Prime adaptation of The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan was released recently - as of writing this, four episodes are out and I have Some Thoughts™. This may just be me shouting into the void along with everyone else, and I know that I'm far from the only one, but I wanted to make a note of my thoughts so far, since I've read the first six books relatively recently. Also because my husband probably can't cope with yet another monologue about characterisation and writing, so the wild web will have to deal with me instead. I did consider waiting until the entire first season was out, but I don't actually know how many episodes are expected, and I don't really feel like keeping track of my thoughts for that long. And I feel like four episodes is enough to judge the feel and general direction of the show. It goes without saying, but this post will be full of spoilers for both episodes 1-4 and all books, and I may be quite critical so if you're really loving the show and don't want to hear anything bad please don't read on.
I know it's been a while since a review post, and I'm working on those, but in the meantime, since today's prompt for The Write Reads April Challenge over on Instagram is 'Translated', I thought I'd talk a bit about my second language: Italian.
