Macbeth, the Thane of Cawdor, is a loyal subject to Duncan, the King of Scotland. At least, he used to be. With tempting words and treacherous images, three witches and his own wife inspire Macbeth to a terrible act of treason and murder. As one murder follows another, Macbeth begins to lose his grip upon both his sanity and his hard-won kingdom – but what could possibly unseat him from his bloody throne?

Featuring lush visuals and the FULL, ORIGINAL TEXT of Shakespeare’s brutal Scottish tragedy, Macbeth is the second title in Manga Classics ‘ Shakespeare line, an unflinching version of this classic tale!

TTT: Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books to Read By the Pool/At the Beach (This can also serve as your summer TBR)

Normally the type of books I read by the pool/at the beach tend to be easy reads. Generally, they are either tiny books, contemporary books, graphic novels/manga or in the rare occasion, poetry. But to be honest, nowadays I go more towards audiobooks when I read at the beach.

I will talk about some books I think are good to read outside during the summer (pool/beach). Some I’ve read, some I’ll be reading this summer.

Do you read by the pool/at the beach? What type of books?

May Wrap-up and June TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys!!

How has your month been? May, for me, was actually pretty good!

First of all, because we finally have sun and warmth! I missed this weather! It always makes me so much happier! Anyone else?

But I also had my last exams at the beginning of the month, so after that, I dedicated myself a bit more to reading, which I couldn’t be happier about! Plus I also kind of bought quite many books this month, so we have a haul coming up next month (I will join it with my birthday haul)!

I’ve read 12 books, 2 of them being manga and 1 graphic novel. I also started 3 other books, which I was aiming to have finished but oh well! I just hope next month is as good for me, as this one was.

3 Manga Classics Mini Reviews

Captura de ecrã 2017-06-30, às 18.44.22

Hi guys! I’ve been waiting to do one of these posts for a while, but to post only one review, it’s just not practical so I waited for a bit and have now three Manga Classics to talk about! Oops… If you’ve been here for awhile you probably know I love manga classics, they are a great way to either go back to a story you love or to get introduced to one (especially if you’re not sure about reading the original classic).

I’ve reviewed some of them already, which you can see here, and I can’t wait to talk about these ones, one of them being an ARC:

26591767cover108086-mediumcover134536-medium

Manga Classics: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Manga Classics: The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

Manga Classics: Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare (ARC)

I have only read The Count of Monte Cristo classic yet and read Romeo and Juliet while reading the manga, to compare it. Keep in mind that my review for The Jungle Book is solely about the manga version without any comparison to the original, although I do compare it to the Disney version.

November Wrap-up and December TBR

wrapupandtbr

I can’t believe we are already at the end of November… I didn’t even see this month pass!

So last month I read a total of 23 books and this month what did I do? Well… apparently nothing… I had super much school work to do, plus I got myself into a reading slump… Those two together accomplished a total of 7 books read this month, 4 of them being manga, which is the least I’ve read this year.

How was your month? Hopefully better than mine? What books did you read?

Mini ARC Reviews – Manga Classics

Captura de ecrã 2017-06-30, às 18.44.22

Hi guys! So, I’ve been reading quite a bit of manga and I came across some new manga classics that I wanted to read. Since my reviews for manga tend to be on the slimmer side, I decided to post two per post since they are from the same publisher, although the authors vary.

These ones are two new releases:

cover121299-medium33776413

Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe 

Manga Classics: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

I have never read any of these classics yet, so keep in mind that my review is solely about the manga version without any comparison.

Great Expectations has it all: romance, mystery, comedy, and unforgettable characters woven through a gripping rags-to-riches tale.
