Tiger & Bunny, Vol. 01 by Mizuki Sakakibara | Manga Book Review #03

 

mrr

The official manga tie-in to the international smash-hit animated series!

Superpowered humans known as NEXT appeared in the world 45 years ago. Some of them fight crime in the city of Stern Bild while promoting their corporate sponsors on the hit show “HERO TV.” The people love their superheroes, even if they don’t completely understand them, and not all of the NEXT use their powers for good.

Veteran hero Wild Tiger has years of experience fighting crime, but his ratings have been slipping. Under orders from his new employer, Wild Tiger finds himself forced to team up with Barnaby Brooks Jr., a rookie with an attitude. Overcoming their differences will be at least as difficult for this mismatched duo as taking down superpowered bad guys!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen audiences. Continue reading

Library Reads #31

libraryrreadsLibrary Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from either one library, of a few libraries. I’ll tell you a little bit about what I expect from the book, or the author’s writings. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentence’s. From doing these posts, I hope to spread a little of my love for libraries, while also informing you of books that you may or may not have known of!

These are the books that I’ve borrowed from the beginning of September, to the first two weeks of October.

Netgalley Reads | ARCs and Reading Progress

IMG_5931 copy
I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a little click-happy whenever I’m on Netgalley. There are just so many books that interest me! So I end up requesting a few books. If I get allowed to download and read them, I tend to read a few and then forget about the others. Which is bad, because I know that there’s a chance that I’d end up actually liking the books that I haven’t read. It’s also bad that I haven’t read those books since, to me, I feel like I promised to read those books and I’m breaking that promise when I haven’t read those books. Continue reading

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia | Book Review #279

Trigger Warning: Anxiety, Mentions of Suicide, Car Accidents resulting in Death, and Attempted Suicide. 

This review may contain spoilers.

Book Review

31931941Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.


‘You found me in a constellation.’

I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I sat down to read Eliza and Her Monsters. All I really knew about this book was that the main character, Eliza, had an insanely popular online comic book, and that when a new boy moved to her school, Eliza’s life begins to unravel. That was it, so I decided to read the book whenever I got the chance. Continue reading

Spider’s Bite, by Jennifer Estep | Book Review #278

Book Review

6611038My name is Gin, and I kill people.

They call me the Spider. I’m the most feared assassin in the South — when I’m not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don’t use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

Now that a ruthless Air elemental has double-crossed me and killed my handler, I’m out for revenge. And I’ll exterminate anyone who gets in my way — good or bad. I may look hot, but I’m still one of the bad guys. Which is why I’m in trouble, since irresistibly rugged Detective Donovan Caine has agreed to help me. The last thing this coldhearted killer needs when I’m battling a magic more powerful than my own is a sexy distraction… especially when Donovan wants me dead just as much as the enemy.


Spider’s Bite is not a Young Adult novel. Spider’s Bite is an Urban Fantasy, with Paranormal, Magic, Vampires and a Romantic twist. There are sex scenes in this book, and there are scenes involving blood, and murder.

I doubted that I would end up loving this novel. Continue reading

Murder of Crows, by Anne Bishop | Book Review #277

Trigger Warning: Self-Harm, Self-Harm Mention, Rape, Rape Mention

If you are triggered by any of the mentioning’s above, I suggest that you do NOT read this book/series.

Book Review

18114152After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sanguemake her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard — Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader — wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.


Bishop’s writing is seriously addictive. Prior to even reading the series I thought that there was a likely chance that I would end up enjoying The Others series. Now that I’ve read the second book though…I’m starting to really love this series! The Others series is an incredibly problematic book, so, I would suggest that if you were to read The Others books, read them with extreme caution. Continue reading

TBR #42; Love Road

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 10.22.37 PMWelcome, reader/s! For a while now, I’ve been writing a bi-weekly post about books that are on
my TBR. TBR, if you don’t know is the abbreviation for To Be Read. My goal here is to shed some light on books that I’ve otherwise forgotten about. These books could be books I’ve been meaning to read from the library, or books that have been collecting dust on my shelves at home. My goal though is to say a little about the book and also give a little reasoning of why I want to read them. In hopes of reading them sooner than later. 


The two books I’m going to be talking about today are really on the opposite ends of the spectrum. The first book is a YA Mystery, and the second book is a New Adult Contemporary. Continue reading

Written in Red, by Anne Bishop | Book Review #276

TRIGGER WARNING: Self-Harm, Rape Mention.

If you get triggered by Self-Harm scenes (cutting) I would recommend that you do not read this book. 

This review may contain spoilers. 

Book Review

15711341No one creates realms like New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entities—vampires and shape-shifters among them—who rule the Earth and whose prey are humans.

As a cassandra sangue, or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut—a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg’s Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard—a business district operated by the Others.

Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she’s keeping a secret, and second, she doesn’t smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she’s wanted by the government, he’ll have to decide if she’s worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.


I didn’t know what to expect when I finally got my hands on a copy of Written in Red. Continue reading
