Best Shojo Manga!

Hello there! I have a new list for you guys!

One of my fav things to read is shoo manga, so here I have some I’ve read and some. I’m interest in!

I will talk about 10 books that I love or would for sure love!

I hope you like it! Enjoy ❤

In no particular order:

1. Kimi ni Todoke

“Sawako Kuronuma is the perfect heroine… for a horror movie. With striking similarities to a haunting movie character–jet-black hair, sinister smile and silent demeanor–she’s mistakenly called Sadako by those around her. But behind her scary façade is a very misunderstood teenager. Too shy to fit in, all she wants to do is make some friends. But when the most popular boy in class befriends her, she’s sure to make more than just that–she’s about to make some enemies too!”

This is such a cute story! I was completely gripped and had to binge read the series >.< It’s not the easiest to find and buy but it’s definitely worth the read! I read the ones I couldn’t find online and will buy them when it’s possible to find them >.<

2. Waiting for Spring

“Mizuki is a shy girl who’s about to enter high school, and vows to open herself up to new friendships. Of course, the four stars of the boys’ basketball team weren’t exactly the friends she had in mind! Yet, when they drop by the café where she works, the five quickly hit it off. Soon she’s been accidentally thrust into the spotlight, targeted by jealous girls. And will she expand her mission to include… love?!

This one I own the collection and have read it twice. There’s also a movie of it which was okay, but the manga is just so freaking cute!

3. Love Me, Love Me Not

“Four friends share the springtime of their youth together.

Fast friends Yuna and Akari are complete opposites: Yuna is an idealist while Akari is a realist. When lady-killer Rio and the oblivious Kazuomi join their ranks, love and friendship become quite complicated!”

This I just started and it seems incredibly cute and can’t wait to read it all!

4. Dreaming‘ Sun

“Shimana Kameko feels out of place in her own home. Her mother is dead and her father and step-mom only seem to care about Kameko’s six-month-old baby brother. When Kameko decides to skip school and runs away to a nearby park, she stumbles upon a mysterious man in a kimono. The stranger, Fujiwara Taiga, offers Kameko a place to stay…on three conditions. The first condition is that Kameko must tell him why she ran away from home. The second is that she must retrieve his missing house key. The third condition is to have a dream and fall in love. Kameko’s never been in love or had a dream of her own before, but to secure her own apartment, she’s willing to try!”

This one started really cute but I’m not the biggest fan of where the story started to go, but I’d definitely re-read it so it’s worth the list because I do like it in general.

5. Those Not-So-Sweet Boys

“Midori drops her wallet on her first day of high school, but her new classmate Ichijo swoops in to help. She wants to thank him, but he’s part of a tight-knit trio and none of them are ever in class! Rumor has it that they all got expelled for acting up, and studious Midori’s actually at risk of expulsion, too… In order to help support her family, she has a part-time job, which is against the school rules. When the chairman of the school board catches her leaving work, he says he’ll let it go—but only if she’s up to the task of bringing the three boys back to school. Well, why not? It’ll be a piece of cake…right?”

This is quite a recent one but I loved the first volume and am now in the fourth. Definitely cute and the theme is different from the majority I’ve read.

6. Letters from Father Christmas by  J.R.R. and Baillie Tolkien

“Hapless Haruna needs help finding a boyfriend! After failing to win the eye of any guy in high school, Haruna enlists the help of cute upperclassman Yoh to coach her on how to make herself more appealing to the male species. Yoh agrees, with one catch: Haruna had better not fall for him!”

This one I just got and have only read the first novel. It seems adorable and I can’t wait to dive more into it!

7. A Sign of Affection

“Yuki is a typical college student, whose world revolves around her friends, social media, and the latest sales. But when a chance encounter on a train leads to her meeting friend-of-a-friend and fellow student Itsuomi-san, her world starts to widen. But even though Itsuomi-kun can speak three languages, sign language isn’t one of them. Can the two learn to communicate the budding feelings between them?”

This one I just got and have yet to start but it seems like something I’m going to enjoy!

8. Love in Focus

“A teenage girl whose passion for photography leads her to a new school, a new dorm, and a new love triangle. This new edition contains all three volumes of the acclaimed romance manga, a complete shojo story in one book, from the creator of The New York Times bestseller That Wolf-Boy Is Mine! and the ongoing Those Not-So-Sweet Boys!   A YALSA Great Graphic Novels for Teens pick! Mako’s always had a passion for photography. When she loses someone dear to her, she clings to her art as a relic of the close relationship she once had…Luckily, her childhood best friend Kei encourages her to come to his high school and join their prestigious photo club. With nothing to lose, Mako grabs her camera and moves into the dorm where Kei and his classmates live. Soon, a fresh take on life, along with a mysterious new muse, begin to come into focus!”

Just got this one and can’t wait to read it! Love the cover and I hope it’s as cute as I wish!

9. My Love Story!!

“Takeo Goda is a GIANT guy with a GIANT heart.

Too bad the girls don’t want him! (They want his good-looking best friend, Sunakawa.)

Used to being on the sidelines, Takeo simply stands tall and accepts his fate. But one day when he saves a girl named Yamato from a harasser on the train, his (love!) life suddenly takes an incredible turn!

Takeo can hardly believe it when he crosses paths with Yamato again, and he finds himself falling in love with her… But with handsome Sunakawa around, does Takeo even stand a chance?”

This one is adorable! I’ve only read the first novel but it’s So perfect! I just know I’m going to love all of it!

10. Fruits Basket

“After a family tragedy turns her life upside down, plucky high schooler Tohru Honda takes matters into her own hands and moves out…into a tent! Unfortunately for her, she pitches her new home on private land belonging to the mysterious Sohma clan, and it isn’t long before the owners discover her secret. But, as Tohru quickly finds out when the family offers to take her in, the Sohmas have a secret of their own–when touched by the opposite sex, they turn into the animals of the Chinese Zodiac!A perennial favorite of fans and librarians alike, Natsuki Takaya’s beloved bestselling Fruits Basket series returns to print in gorgeous deluxe English-language omnibus editions with beautiful full-color illustrations that are not to be missed!”

And of course I had to include my very favorite! This was the first manga I read in English and it still is my fav. It’s just perfection and I just want everyone to read it!

Hope you all are having a great time!

Tell me what you think about these books, or you can recommend me some new ones!
