Library 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 last 2 weeks of July, up until the end of August. Enjoy!
Evil Librarian by Michelle Knudsen
I heard about Evil Librarian for a few weeks sporadically when the book came out. The book caught my eye, but I wasn’t really interested in the novel. Now that it’s at my library though, I want to give Evil Librarian a try.
Shutter by Courtney Alameda
I’ve heard from a few people that Shutter is scary, but I honestly doubt that. To see whether or not Shutter is as scary as people say it is, I’m going to have to read it!
The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd
I’ve wanted to read The Madman’s Daughter for a while now. I actually borrowed the second book one time and got angry at myself for not checking if the book was actually the second or not. Now I know I have the first book, so I’m going to try and start this series!
Feral by Holly Schindler
I’ve been wanting to read Feral for literal years. Now I can! Hopefully I end up liking Feral since there’s so much promise to the synopsis.
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
I’ve heard some great things about this book, and frankly I’m looking forward to reading this book.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I’ve heard many great things about this book. I really want to read the book, yet I’m hesitant to actually buy a copy since in previous times that I’ve read Schwab’s books, I end up not liking them. Hopefully with A Darker Shade of Magic, I’ll like the story!
The Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
I’ve been looking forward to reading The Daughter of the Burning City for so long.
MANGA BOOKS BORROWED
Dawn of the Arcana Vol.1 by Rei Tōma
Every once in a while I’ll try reading a manga, but now I actually really want to read more Manga. I want to try to get into reading more Manga, since my reading time in general is becoming low. With reading more manga, I’ll hopefully get through way more books than before, haha.
Tiger and Bunny Vol.1 by Mizuki Sakakibara
I have no idea what this is really about, other than superpowered humans known as NEXT. Apparently this book is based off the hit anime series. If I end up liking the manga, maybe I’ll watch the anime as well.
Vampire Knight Vol. 1 & 2 by Matsui Hino
For years I’ve tried to watch the anime. I think the farthest I’ve watched of said anime were about 8 episodes. And then I end up not watching the rest of the anime series because Zero is too angsty to watch, hahahaha. So hopefully reading the manga will be better.
He’s My Only Vampire Vol.1 & 2 by Aya Shouto
I actually found this manga series when I was scouring book depository for manga books. I was actually super surprised that one of the libraries I go to had this series. I thought they might, since they’re such a big library in such a populated city, but to actually see that they had the book…I was immensely happy. I have no idea what this series is about, but I look forward to reading it!
The Cain Saga, Vol. 1 by Kaori Yuki, Akira Watanabe
I honestly have no idea what this manga is about either. I just saw that it was titled Cain Saga, and thought: ‘huh, that should be interesting.’
Noragami: Stray God, Vol. 1 by Adachitoka
I love the anime series, so I know that I’ll enjoy the manga as well.
Tsubasa: RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE, Vol.1 by CLAMP
Yes, the title is really spelt like that. I loved the CLAMP anime series at a kid. I even bought a small book of a part of an episode when I was younger. I wasn’t going to borrow Tsubasa, but at this point I already had a few books in my arms, so what was the difference of a few more? I’m so excited to revisit this series!
Godchild Vol.1 by Kaori Yuki
Another manga in which I have no idea what it is about. Godchild does sound interesting though, so I’ll give the first volume a shot.
Blue Exorcist by Kazue Kato
I LOVE the Blue Exorcist manga, and movie! My sister enjoys them as well — though she won’t read the manga, which is fine. I’m excited to read the novel!
Clover: Omnibus Vol. 1-4 by CLAMP
Clover is by far the biggest and heaviest book I borrowed, of all the manga’s I currently have. I don’t really know what Clover is about — just that it’s a fantasy. When I saw Clover I was reminded of Karneval, another series I want to read, but have seen the anime.
Chocolat Vol. 1 by Ji-Sang Shin, GEO
Before this moment, I’d never actually heard of manhwa, which is Korean comics. So this should be interesting! I know absolutely nothing about Chocolat, haha.
Karneval Vol.1 by Touya Mikanagi
Karneval was a great anime. I enjoyed watching and getting to know the characters immensely. Now, I hope to get to enjoy the story again in manga form.
Fairy Tail Vol.1-4 Masters Edition by Hiro Mashima
I’ve watched a lot of the Fairy Tail anime. I love the Fairy Tail anime to bits. I’ve laughed with the characters, cried with the characters. This is probably weird to read, but I honestly feel like I’m part of the Fairy Tail family. So now I’m over the moon that I get to read their story in this manga!
Thank you for reading! Have you read any of these books OR the manga I’ve mentioned?
