What I Devoured On Oct + News

Greetings from the night stars and my lazy self ,

Seeing as October has ended aka temporary perishment , I decided to share what I read ’till now ! On September , I tried to get rid of my foolish reading slump that has slowed me down for about two months :\ therefore I fought against university odds and attempted to devour as much as I can under the new current + environment.With my researches plummeting me left and right , I survived ! though they were not that troublesome but let’s allow some drama to appear for once at least .  

So here’s what I read  :

(1)

13104080

Book title : Unravel Me

Author : Tahereh Mafi

Goodreads rating: 4.29/5

My rating : 5/5

My comment : I’ve been planning to read this for so long then my friend kept pestering me recently on reading it so I did ! the beginning of it was a bit calm and at bay even though the first book ended with a BAM ! *not sure since I read the first one a year ago*  then as I got into it , Juliette’s mentality was intriguing and her character was building to be different than the way she was in the first book. Warner’s too showed a side that wasn’t in the first book either.

13188676

Book title : Ignite Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Goodreads rating: 4.45/5

My rating : 5/5

My comment : I really reading this the most from the series , I even finished it in one day because I wanted to know the ending. Adam’s attitude which annoyed me throughout the book clearly showed why I was with Warner all the way. It was interesting how you think while reading that the climax is over and then BOOM ! something comes up. Loved how the story came to a satisfying conclusion but I’m always bad with endings no matter the type. (But I despise open and sad endings (;¬_¬) )

28220892

Book title : Vassa In The Night

Author : Sarah Porter

Goodreads rating: 3.59/5

My rating : 3.75/5

My comment : This was my first Russian folklore retelling ! The book was full of unsolved mysteries and intriguing characters that kept me hanging. I loved the setting which was not in Russia , it was in NY. I gave it such rating because even though I liked it overall , I was left a bit unsatisfied with how it was concluded and it’s probable that it wasn’t not my kind of book either , though I’m not sure ¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯

5071434

Book title : Otomen Vol.1

Author + Mangaka : Aya Kanno

Goodreads rating: 4.01/5

My rating : 4/5

My comment : I’ve been meaning to read it for a while since I saw a few people on my Twitter exclaiming how it is and such , I thoroughly enjoyed though at the end I was wondering how it will continue from now since he is *highlight to see spoiler* crushing on a girl who sees him as a friend (friend-zoned). I’m not sure if I’ll purchase volume 2 and forward any time soon this year. I’d recommend it for the cuteness element and for those interested in a school life shoujo manga with a unique MC (‐^▽^‐)! (I’m more of a fantasy & supernatural manga reader or as I said , depending on my mood)

Shadows And Dreams

Author : Matthew Cody , Gwenda Bond , Carrie Harris , Kiersten White , Andrea Phillips , E.C. Myers

Goodreads rating: 3.36/5

My rating : 3.5/5

My comment : This is a series that’s written in the form of episodes similar to tv shows. It was quite intriguing to hear about such an idea. I don’t know if it was wrong time wrong book to read but I didn’t particularly like or hate it , the events unfortunately failed to pique my interest. The introduction was a bit confusing but as it progresses , it clears up. I guess it’s because I’m not a huge fan of the ‘we’re the only ones alive’ dystopian thing . Therefore , if you’re into that , go ahead and delve into it ~

My Little Monster Vol.1

Author + Mangaka : Robico

Goodreads rating: 4.28/5

My rating : 4/5

My comment : I liked the anime and read the manga online but still wanted to purchase a physical copy. This manga is enjoyable and quick to read but what annoyed midway were spelling mistake ._. I kept mentally correcting them , I can’t blame the translators though because it might be just my copy. Putting my annoyance aside , I like Haru’s + Shizuku’s relationship and Haru’s weird behavior is simply hilarious. ʱªʱªʱª (ᕑᗢूᓫ∗)

Example from my Twitter :

Speaking of not being airbound/ tbr-bound, I tried to finish Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo but didn’t have time so I’ll finish it this month (probably going to binge read the duology this vacation xD )

 

 

Because of my laziness and not having much time (time management issue .. ) , I tend to ditch my blog for a while then feel encouraged to come back but I’ll try to update it every two weeks or less ;P

Aaaaaaaaand before I enclose ,

  1. I’m on a vacation for 10 days ! FREEDOM ~ヾ(´▽`;)ゝ
  2. I made a Youtube channel (on the end of Sept..click here) because I felt the need to be ‘productive’ + I wanted to try it ☆⌒(*^-°)v (creepy winky emoticon , why not)

I posted 3 videos until now so be sure to check them out and (like , comment , and subscribe if you like ) o(*>ω<*)o

Until then ,

またね〜
