He’s my Only Vampire Vol.08 + 09 + 10, by Aya Shouoto | Manga Review #40-42

28449211“I will restore your love to you……”

When Eriya offers to help retrieve Aki’s memories, he and Kana begin spending quite a lot of time in each other’s company. Seeing the two of them cozily conspiring together, Aki soon finds himself becoming strangely irritated—-despite the fact that he’s said to have lost all recollection of his love for Kana. And with that, the threads that bind the three together grow even more tangled……


I didn’t have many thoughts concerning this eighth volume. But what I did think of this volume is as follows:

I bet that Aki gets the stigma of Envy.

I don’t like that I’m right in the sense that Eriya is up to no good. This eighth volume pretty much sums up that Eriya is a huge ol’ dumb-dumb.

I don’t like the love-triangle that these three are in.

The plot twist that happens nearing the end of this 8th volume has me very happy.

I give He’s My Only Vampire Volume 08, 3 stars.

He’s My Only Vampire Volume 09

29775372“To think that sharing her with you would let me experience such unthinkable highs…!”

At long last, Aki has regained his memory. However, he and Kana are faced with a painful truth–all along, Kana has actually been Eriya’s thrall! Amid the chaos, the final Stigma appears, and the bloodred ties that bind the players in the game tighten to a stranglehold!


Ok. I’m not even going to say much about this 9th volume because hello spoilers. What I liked about this 9th volume is that the last stigma appeared. Which makes the story feel like it’s at its tipping point. So I know for sure that the 10th volume will be pretty interesting!

He’s My Only Vampire Volume 10

31934031Born together and locked in endless struggle…that leaves us but one fate…

Envy, the final Stigma appears at last…on Kana! To protect her, Aki resolves to battle Eriya in earnest and sets out for Tsubakiin Manor. The tale of the love and blood red bonds shared by the beautiful vampire twins and their thrall comes to a thrilling conclusion!


I expected this last volume to be explosive. And boiiii, my feelings have exploded.

its great seeing Aki being talkative, and actually express himself for once.

It was great reading this last volume. There was quite a bit of action, and I want to say that this 10th volume was a little longer than the previous volumes, but I’m not too sure about that! I can say for sure though that this 10th volume felt pretty long.

There was so much that happened. I want to just spill my guts out and spoil everything. At the same time though, I want to savour the ending and my thoughts on it all to myself. I know that if I don’t write my thoughts down somewhere though, I’ll regret it later.

OK, so, the ending to the story is very bittersweet. I can’t help but wish that everyone got a happier ending and that they were all together as one big happy family. Saying that though…I’m kind of glad that the characters all got their own ending in a way. And sometimes these endings can’t be the ones that we were hoping for.

I can understand why the story ended this way. One, there are a few stories that we left unfinished. Mainly that Kana has AN OLDER SIBLING?! I hate that their story ended too soon.

In the end though, I’m quite happy that Kana and Aki got an ending that they earned. Especially with everything those two had been through in these 10 volumes.

I give He’s My Only Vampire Volume 10, 3 stars!

Happy Reading!

July ’18 Wrap Up + Book Haul

IMG_6383I had a TBR set up for July! I should know better than this, because it never works out for me personally. So if you set up your own little monthly TBR’s that’s great!

The books I had set up on my TBR for July was: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Ascend by Amanda Hocking, The Beast us an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale, and finally, The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. I unknowingly had a fantasy theme going on! Though I did not intend to have it that way…

I ended up not completing/reading all of the books on this months TBR. Of the 5 I had set out to read, I only read one. Which I’m honestly not even upset about. So these books will go back on my shelves in hopes of reading them some other time!  Continue reading

He’s My Only Vampire Vol.06 + 07, by Aya Shouto | Manga Review #37

25861125“Forgive me. I can no longer love you prettily……”
After Kana regains her memories at Tsubakiin Manor, her feelings for Aki become colored by their shared past. Meanwhile, Aki offers Mishio a certain “deal” in order to rescue Kana. Where will Kana and Aki’s rapidly developing destiny lead them?!!
Each time I read a manga, I’m amazed at what can be packed into four or so chapters.
Within this 6th volume, we learn the true feelings that Aki has towards Kana, and we learn the feelings that Kana has towards Aki. Over the course of this volume, the story is one that has a lot of misgivings.
Aki does things in trying to save Kana, we learn the consequences that Aki has payed. In  that he jeopardizes himself. We also learn that from a young age Aki has been severely depressed.
Also, at the end of this there was a freaking plot twist! I’m interested in learning how that plot twist turns out to be….
I give this 6th volume, 3 stars!

He’s My Only Vampire Volume 07

27161840“You said you loved me, right?” Kana is heartbroken as Aki treats her with cold indifference after losing all memory of her and their time together. Amid this confusion, Eriya–Aki’s younger twin brother said to have been put in sleep stasis after being nearly killed by Aki–makes his entrance!! What will happen when the blood-soaked vampire twins finally meet again?!


So I know that in this seventh (7th) volume the twins are reunited, but I can’t help but be a little angry at Eriya.

Volume 07 seems to have gotten out of hand, in my opinion. But I know that there are only 3 other volumes left, with a total of 10, so it’s bound to get a little wacky before the big finale.

In this seventh volume, we see a new character introduced, the history of another, as well as the true extent of what Aki did for Kana’s release.

I’m angry at Eriya, since he seems to be very, very manipulative and that ticks me off soooo much. I can also say with certainty that I despise Eriya in this volume. He might be able to redeem himself in the next volume, or at least by the end of the story. I highly doubt that though.

I have no idea where the story is heading and I’m nervous about that! I kind of want to not read the rest of the books, just to save myself from ruining the story for my future-self. However, I have the last 3 volumes beside me so now I’m off to read them!

I give this seventh volume 2 stars.

Happy Reading!

June 2018 Wrap Up + Mini Book Haul

IMG_6230Hello, friends! How are you doing? — Today’s post is my Wrap Up post for June. We’re already 6 months into the year! The older I get, the faster time flies past me.

My TBR for June was actually only 3 books. These books were Sea of Change by Kelley Armstrong, Graceling by Kristin Cashore, and Eve by Anna Carey.

The first week of June, I actually participated in a readathon, dubbed #goatathon, over on tumblr! Three of the four books that I had planned on reading during the Goatathon were the books I marked as my June TBR! So that worked hand-in-hand for me. Continue reading

He’s My Only Vampire Vol. 05, by Aya Shouto | Manga Review #35

25677552“Forget all love and thirst only for blood…”
Acquiring a third Stigma took a heavy toll on Aki’s body. To help him recuperate, Kana and the others plan a trip to a cozy hot-spring resort deep in the mist-shrouded mountains. Little do they know, this outing will open the sinister door of Aki’s “original sin,” and his hidden past will finally come to light!!

I like seeing the crush that Shiranui has on Kana. He’s so freaking adorable.

The obliviousness that Aki has is very…unusual to say the least.

OK, so, there seems to be a lot of things happening. and it seems that every other volume leads to a new discovery in the story. However, it’s slightly confusing, to say the least. With everything been thrown in, it seems like the author of the story just threw everything together hoping it would all fall into place.

Reading and seeing the history of the story was very interesting — especially since the history is seen from Kana’s point of view. I’m actually glad that we get to see/read the history between Eriya, Aki and Kana. The story felt a little off without it.

The story seems to be going in many different ways, so I’m interested in seeing what happens.

I give this 5th volume, 2 stars.

Happy Reading!

May 2018 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello! Today’s post will be my monthly wrap up for May. As you can see by the title, haha. I also ended up buying quite a few books, so check those out as well!

IMG_5901Knowing that I probably wouldn’t stick to it, I actually came up with a TBR this month!

My TBR for May included: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson, A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas, Under the Empyrean Sky by Chuck Wendig, The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima, Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson, and finally, A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab.

I ended up reading way more books that I thought I would’ve this month, since May is typically one of the busiest months of the year for me. Yet I ended up reading 08 books, and 10 manga. Not bad if I do say so myself! Continue reading

November 2017 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello everyone! Today’s post will be my November 2017 Wrap-Up. It’s mindblowing that it’s already December. This year has flown by so quickly!


I limited myself to 3 books for my TBR in November. The books from top to bottom are: The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2) by Maggie Stiefvater (re-read); Zodiac (Zodiac, #1) by Romina Russell (re-read); and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Illustrated by Jim Kay) by JK Rowling.

I didn’t get around to reading my TBR at all last month. Which I’m very disappointed about, but I’m not going to let that bring me down. I read other books that were fairly interesting, so that in and of itself is pleasing.

Last month I read 7 books, gained 7 books. I reviewed 14 books, and posted 6 bookish-related posts. Continue reading

October 2017 Wrap Up + Book Haul

Hello! Today’s post is my October 2017 Wrap Up + Book Haul!

IMG_5873October is one of the busier months for me personally. It’s busy because here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving on (or around) the 12th of October. Then it’s my birthday on the 25th (Two more years until my champagne birthday! Not that I’m going to drink, haha). After that, it’s Halloween!

In October I had 7 books on my TBR this month. Seven books is completely over ambitious for me, since I never really end up reading what I want to read. The books that were on my TBR this month were: The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman; Milk and Honey, by Rupi Kaur; Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson; Shutter, by Courtney Alameda; Evil Librarian, by Michelle Knudsen; Labyrinth Lost, by Zoraida Córdova; and finally, The Madman’s Daughter, by Megan Shepherd.
