Yey!Another post about books.If you didn’t guess by now I love to read…And I do that a lot..Like A LOT!
But last week was a pretty tame in my reading life, I got sick(I’m feeling much better now), my mom got sick basically a mess in my house.Let’s not talk about bad stuff, let’s talk about BOOK!
He’s rich, he’s smart, girls gather around him all the time, and he has always gotten first place on his exams… well, until Kujou transferred in his primary school class. She was quiet, plain, and poor, yet not once has she failed at beating Yanagi, both in academics and sports! Yanagi has made it his life goal to defeat this girl Kujou, and ten years later, as they enter high school, he just might finally win! This is the story of their last game.
My Thoughts: Great manga.Loved the art style.It gave me lots of Ouran Host club vibes(in a good way).Very sweet and cute love story between our main couple.Can’t wait to read it all!
DISCLAIMER:If you are under 18 this book is not for you!
Rules are made to be broken . . .
If England had yearbooks, I’d probably be “Arden St. Ives: Man Least Likely to Set the World on Fire.” So far, I haven’t. I’ve no idea what I’m doing at Oxford, no idea what I’m going to do next and, until a week ago, I had no idea who Caspian Hart was. Turns out, he’s brilliant, beautiful . . . oh yeah, and a billionaire.It’s impossible not to be captivated by someone like that. But Caspian Hart makes his own rules. And he has a lot of them. About when I can be with him. What I can do with him. And when he’ll be through with me.I’m good at doing what I’m told in the bedroom. The rest of the time, not so much. And now that Caspian’s shown me glimpses of the man behind the billionaire I know it’s him I want. Not his wealth, not his status. Him. Except that might be the one thing he doesn’t have the power to give me.
My Thoughts: My favorite book of last month.I loved beeing in Arden’s head (almost all book is from his point of view).He is just so funny and the love between Arden and Caspian ..just magic.I ship them both sooo hard!
From Day of the River: Sakuraba Junko is turning 27 years old soon, but even so, she is without a boyfriend. But who cares?! Junko has a stable job as an English teacher and she is fine with spending her upcoming birthday alone. Well, until she is set up with on an omiai with a Buddhist monk… which, of course, she rejects. But then he shows up at her school where he has enrolled in private lessons… what will become of our Junko-sensei?
My Thoughts: I did find this manga after watching the live adaptation(my Love Yamapi is in the cast).And I can say I liked life adaptation much more than the manga. The manga is problematic and the relationship is very abusive, but you have none of it in the live adaptation.So my recommendation just skip the manga and watch the drama.
For centuries, Southern peanut farmer Jedediah Shine has protected secret preserves of Wild Fey from humanity. He’s shielded modern humanity from bloodthirsty Fey. Unknown factions from both are dropping fresh corpses on his lawn, leaving Jedediah holding the body bags.A vengeful mercenary company resurrect an ancient blood feud. Forewarned against direct action, the Namhaid orchestrate a subtle plot pitting the wizard against law enforcement agencies. Rebellious young centaurs challenge borders guarded by the wizard to keep them hidden. They unleash a genocidal war on humanity and the Guardians keeping them caged. Unwitting pawns of a deeper menace, both serve a greater plot to rob Jedediah of magic’s deepest secret.
Woods filled with murder victims vie for Jedediah’s attention against a jealous elven ex-lover and Jedediah’s new, seemingly reincarnated girlfriend. Two out-of-control teenage sorceresses and a Cherry Coke addicted dragonling further complicate Jedediah’s attempts to root out the mysterious murderers.A Federal manhunt leaves Jedediah’s charges unprotected. Centaurs attack his foster daughter. A rogue Namhaid agent takes the fight to Jedediah, intent to carve a reputation from the wizard’s corpse. His assault nearly kills the young dragonling, putting Jedediah on its mother’s dinner menu.In order to protect his loved ones and the Golden Gate to magic’s source, Jedediah must stop the Namhaid, clear his name and avoid ending up a snack. When all seems lost, a seemingly desperate enemy offers Jedediah a key to unraveling all. Could it merely be the bait on the most sinister trap yet? Does he have a choice? What will it cost to stop the murders in his wood?
My Thoughts: Wow!This one was a wild ride from finish till the end.From the cover, you really expect some high fantasy medieval type of book, but it’s not that at all.It’s really set in the “modern” world.The story did go very smoothly and the way it was written I did enjoy, just sometimes I was a little- confused what’s going on, but I think that’s more just my problem (English is my 4th Language ). Overall I think it’s an interesting book.
That’s it from Me!
Till next time 🙂
