8 Reasons Why I’m a Fan of Manga

Book Reviews

I spent most of my high school life as a closeted anime fan. I ignored the kids with naruto headbands and obvious anime shirts while in school, and then I'd go home to my bedroom walls covered in anime wall scrolls and read manga for hours. I was a filthy poser. Card Captor Sakura by CLAMP was my introduction into anime and also into manga as well. A think a…

How to Create a Reading Nook

Life

One of the reasons we settled on this specific floor plan was because there was a study. For years I've wanted a room where I could have all my bookshelves and a cozy reading nook where I could curl up and read my books, and Alex wanted a place where he could have his desk and game. The study is both, and with doors to keep the cat out so…

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas & Spinster by Kate Bolick After a Court of Thorns and Roses, I was SO PUMPED for the second book in this series. I mean, frothing at the mouth ready for this book to come out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! I wanted it so badly! When it finally came out, a put it off a little, only because, I knew…

“Currently” Me

Life

Since I did the currently reading list, I thought I'd do a "currently" about me, and what I've been up to. A lot has changed in my life (in all ways) since I started this blog way back when. I mean, this was the first picture of myself I posted on the blog: HA OH MAN I'M GETTING EMBARRASSED. Obviously a lot has changed. l started this blog when I…

Spice and Wolf, Vol. 1 by Isuna Hasekura & The Johnstown Girls by Kathleen George I've noticed that this anime has been seemingly super popular in a lot of circles. I never got around to really watching it though, aside from the first episode, but Alex found it boring and fell asleep, I got into other series more heavily, and it ended up on the back burner. Although, I will…

“Currently” To-Read List

Book Reviews, Life

I've been churning out these book reviews faster than I can stub my toe on the dining room table's leg! (That's actually a lie, I can stub my toe in lightning fast speeds....constantly) Although, I haven't mentioned what's coming up on my reading list that I'm doing my best to knock down to a reasonable size! So let's take a gander at what the bookworm has on her to-read shelf.…

Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch All right, so I loved The Dinner, which was the first book of Koch's that I've read. I grabbed it when I was in SLO on vacation in California at a Barnes & Noble. It was up on the 'new' shelf or something and the cover just caught my eye, so I read the inner flap and it just sold it for me. I'm…

Single Issue Comic Roundup

Book Reviews

I don't mark them on GoodReads, I don't really talk about them much on the blog, and I don't even keep them on my bookshelf, but I do enjoy single issue comics! Back in Pittsburgh I used to live within walking distance of an awesome comic book shop, which was above my all time favorite art shop. I would drop in before/after my shifts at Starbucks and grab new art…

Damned by Chuck Palahniuk & Cucumber Quest, Vol. 1 by Gigi D.G. As I slowly read through all of Palahniuk's books, with more on my to-read list yet, I finally get to Damned, which actually has a sequel that I'll have to get my hands on now. So this hilarious little number is about Madison, a 13 year old girl that finds herself in hell. She's from an ultra rich family…
