MANGA 1st IMPRESSIONS -Tokyo Ghoul, Black Butler and The Ancient Magus’ Bride

22022019-IMG_8741.jpg

Hi guys! I haven’t done manga reviews in quite a long time, but I’ve recently gotten 3 new manga books that I’ve never tried before but wanted to, so, I decided to do a first impressions on them in one post!

These ones are the three mangas I recently got and read in order:

23353593669097923310828

Tokyo Ghoul, Vol.1 by Sui Ishida

Black Butler, Vol.1 by Yana Toboso

The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Vol.1 by Kore Yamazaki

Like I said, I’ve heard of these books for quite some time and always wanted to get to them, but this is the first time I actually read them. As for my predictions on what I was going to like the most, I was completely wrong!Read More »

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?

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.

TTT: Freebie – Bookshelf Appreciation​

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:

Freebie – create your own topic – Bookshelf Appreciation

So, I decided to share my bookshelves today. I love seeing bookshelf tours on Youtube but in bookish blogs, it’s a bit more rare to see them. And that’s why I decided to make that my topic. Also, sorry for some photos, the day was terribly crappy and so, I had to use artificial light which didn’t help at all.

What do you think of my bookshelves? How do you organize yours?

March Wrap-up and April TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey bookish friends! How was your March??

Mine for sure was not what I expected. I was sick half of the month, I also somehow managed to end in a reading slump so… Not as good as I expected.

I read quite many books (13) but the majority was either manga or graphic novels, so technically I didn’t read that much. But hopefully, I will read more next month!

What did you read this month? Any favorites?

February Wrap-up and March TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys! How was your February??

Mine for sure didn’t go as planned… It was still awesome but for sure not as planned.

First, I pre-ordered some books I really wanted to get and ended up not getting them due to them being sold out. So that was the not so great part. But at least I did get one I was really anticipating! Then, I ended up traveling to Berlin and so I wasn’t able to read as much as I wanted. Which to be honest I am MORE THAN HAPPY that that part didn’t go according to plan – which was to stay home and read.

Berlin was amazing! Definitely one of my favorite cities so far! A bit similar to Paris in my opinion, which I also love… I loved the feeling, I loved everything I visited and although I didn’t buy much I bought some pretty cool things, so expect a haul pretty soon!!

I will stop rambling now and get to the point of this post. This month I read 12 books. I am really happy with this month because I got to participate in the Contemporary-a-thon, which was amazing, you can check out my post here and I actually discovered a LOT of favorites this month.

What did you read this month? Any favorites?

Contemporary-A-Thon Wrap-up!

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-17, às 00.13.31.png

Hey guys! So, the Contemporary-a-thon just ended and I loved so much participating you guys have no idea! It made me push myself to read some contemporary books I was dying to read, and I personally think I made amazing choices because I loved all the books I read during February 12th to February 18th, with all my heart.

I kinda deleted TBR out by accident but I will tell which books were in it. I tried to follow it but one of the books I wanted to read was late arriving and so I had to switch things a bit and ended up reading one less. But it was amazing and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on the books I read with you guys, so keep reading!

The hosts for this read-a-thon are Chelsea, Julie, and Natasha. This read-a-thon was started by Chelsea and Julie last year and I can’t wait to participate in more of them!Read More »
