Ouran Host Club Book Tag

ouran-high-school-host-club-218-wide800

I was tagged ages ago by Nadwa@Painfullyfictional to do the Ouran Host Club Book Tag. So thank you so much Nadwa!! I’ve never seen this anime, although I must say that it does look cute and reminds me of another anime! I’m for sure a fan of both anime and manga so, I’m happy to be doing this tag and sorry I got to it so late! >.<

And since this is a book tag that is based on anime, I will answer some of the questions with anime/manga characters! But since I don’t know if a lot of you guys are interested in it, I will also get some YA characters in here! Double excited for this one^^

Also congrats to icebreaker694 for doing such a cool tag! I absolutely love anime and this is perfect for me!

An intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, Sing, Unburied, Sing examines the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power – and limitations – of family bonds.

Jojo is thirteen years old and trying to understand what it means to be a man. His mother, Leonie, is in constant conflict with herself and those around her. She is black and her children’s father is white. Embattled in ways that reflect the brutal reality of her circumstances, she wants to be a better mother, but can’t put her children above her own needs, especially her drug use.

When the children’s father is released from prison, Leonie packs her kids and a friend into her car and drives north to the heart of Mississippi and Parchman Farm, the State Penitentiary. At Parchman, there is another boy, the ghost of a dead inmate who carries all of the ugly history of the South with him in his wandering. He too has something to teach Jojo about fathers and sons, about legacies, about violence, about love.

Rich with Ward’s distinctive, lyrical language, Sing, Unburied, Sing brings the archetypal road novel into rural twenty-first century America. It is a majestic new work from an extraordinary and singular author.

Hey guys! October is already starting and with it comes some pretty nice Halloween and Fall books! I’m doing a post with Halloween recommendations tomorrow so keep an eye open for that!

I also ended my Goodreads Challenge for 100 books, which I’m super proud about since October is only starting!

As for my wrap-up, this month I read 14 books. I read pretty much everything I aimed to and I found some favorites this month! I had overall a great reading month, filled with amazing books and I can’t wait for you guys to check my thoughts on them! The only book I’m really sad I didn’t read this month is Wonder Woman: Warbringer that I preordered but it got lost in the mail…
