Weeks 8 and 9 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge 2018!
Super short reviews included:
Even though I read 8 volumes I was only able to complete 2 new challenges. I guess most of the manga I read is pretty similar. I’ve completed 16 of the 52 challenges, that’s really not a lot. But I really want to concentrate on reading the manga I own, before going out to purchase new manga to complete the challenges. Continue reading
Week 6 and 7 of Manga Hoarder’s Manga Reading Challenge!
You guys! I’m so close to being done with this series. I’m so excited, but also sad because I am loving this series so much.
These last two weeks I read 3 volumes of Kamisama- Kiss. I read volumes 19-21.
The thing about trying to complete a series while doing a challenge is that I can’t really complete any new challenges. Kamisama-kiss pretty much completes the same 6 challenges, volume after volume.
Anyway, as far the manga is concerned, I felt these weren’t the best volumes. Especially volumes 20 & 21. I love Nanami’s character, however, sometimes she can be stubborn. The kind of stubborn that leads to stupid mistakes that could have been avoided. I tend to find these types of stubborn characters a bit annoying. I really hope that she goes back to her smart strong self in the last few volumes, otherwise, I’m going to be pretty disappointed.
Ok so Maka and Soul are not a romantic couple, they’re best friends, but I couldn’t think of a more perfect “couple” for this. Their ultimate goal is to turn Soul into a Death Scythe. It’s a bumpy road, but they never give up because they know they can depend on each other. Continue reading
“The fate of the world is in the hands of detective of the supernatural R. F. Jackaby and his intrepid assistant, Abigail Rook. An evil king is turning ancient tensions into modern strife, using a blend of magic and technology to push Earth and the Otherworld into a mortal competition. Jackaby and Abigail are caught in the middle as they continue to solve the daily mysteries of New Fiddleham, New England — like who’s created the rend between the worlds, how to close it, and why zombies are appearing around. At the same time, the romance between Abigail and the shape-shifting police detective Charlie Cane deepens, and Jackaby’s resistance to his feelings for 926 Augur Lane’s ghostly lady, Jenny, begins to give way. Before the four can think about their own futures, they will have to defeat an evil that wants to destroy the future altogether.” – Goodreads
The Jackaby books quickly became one of my favorite series. I love it when mythical creatures and the such mix in with our world. I love it even more in Victorian/Victorian-esque settings. The writing was also quite good and very easy to get through. I’m a little sad that the series has ended, but it was an excellent journey. Continue reading
“Zita’s life took a cosmic left turn in the blink of an eye.
When her best friend is abducted by an alien doomsday cult, Zita leaps to the rescue and finds herself a stranger on a strange planet. Humanoid chickens and neurotic robots are shocking enough as new experiences go, but Zita is even more surprised to find herself taking on the role of intergalactic hero. Before long, aliens in all shapes and sizes don’t even phase her. Neither do ancient prophecies, doomed planets, or even a friendly con man who takes a mysterious interest in Zita’s quest. ”
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this graphic novel. It’s so much fun! Just, so much fun! Both the characters and the world setting are very interesting. I actually wish the author had spent a little more time world building because there’s so much that could have been explored.
The characters were very likable, and even though I could see the villain/antagonist and “twist” coming a mile away, I was so immersed in the story that it didn’t take away from the excitement.
I highly recommend this series and will continue reading it.
