January 2019 Wrap Up, Book Haul & Thoughts

img_7631Hello friends! Welcome, welcome. Today’s post is my January 2019 (!!!!!!!!) Wrap Up and Book Haul. 

It’s been long time since I last posted a monthly TBR on my Instagram… When I first posted my TBR for January, I wasn’t sure on whether or not I’d end up completing the TBR pile since I was pretty sick between the day after Christmas until through halfway of January.

That Wolf-Boy is Mine! by Yoko Nogiri | Manga Review

Hello friends! Today’s Manga Review post is a little different because I’m not just reviewing one volume of a manga. I’m reviewing the entirety of That Wolf-Boy is Mine! by Yoko Nogiri, in one go. 

Enjoy!

41085340MONSTER MISCHIEF After some traumatic experiences, Komugi Kusunoki transferred from the city to start a new life in rural Hokkaido. But on her first day of school, the school heartthrob Yū Ōgami blurts out, “You smell good!” Despite the hijinks, Komugi tries to adjust to her new school, but it’s not long before she stumbles across Yū dozing off under a tree. When she attempts to wake him up, he transformed…into a wolf?! It turns out that Yū is one of many other eccentric boys in her class year–and she’s the only one who knows their secret…!

I found That Wolf-Boy is Mine on Instagram, and then read the volumes as soon as I could. I had only seen a snippet of the first chapter when I first came across this manga. When I started reading That Wolf-Boy is Mine, I didn’t really know what to expect to be honest.

The one thing that I did not like about this story was that there were the stereotypical girls who thought of the prettiest boys in school as property. This scene is admittedly a small part of the story. Yet that part takes up a huge part of the story, as it is one of Komugi’s insecurities — bullies and standing up to them.

Onto the parts that I liked and loved about That Wolf-Boy is Mine!

I generally enjoyed just about everything else that the story offered to be quite honest with you. I loved how the story progressed, regressed, and then progressed once again! I love the relationships that Komugi gains through friendships between her friends.

I adored the plot of the story, and I love love loved how the ending of That Wolf-Boy is Mine! came to be.

The only part of this story was the side story that was introduced to us. So I hope that if this story is ever re-visited by Nogiri, I hope everyone gets a happy ending.

I give That Wolf-Boy is Mine!, 4 stars.
