    Winter wrap up! + Spring Watch-list!

    A few on my watch-list were last autumn leftovers; Akatsuki no Yona, Nanatsu no Taizai & Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. That said I still found winter season a wee bit promising. Granted I only have like 4 new titles to add to my anime reservoir, it was still plenty enough to get excited with. But among the four titles, only two I faithfully followed, while the two left me a bit unmotivated. Tokyo Ghoul √A 『東京喰種トーキョーグール√A』 I already wrote TD;DR—

    A little dent on my book buying habit.

    When I started blogging, I really have no idea what an ARC was all about. But when I saw people mentioning sites like Netgalley and Galley Grab (which I really, really miss), I was really, really interested. I got to read advance copies in exchange for reviews? Yes, please. But when I read their guidelines, you could say I was intimidated. Very much so. For professional reader? That’s sounds so…well, professional and I’m definitely not that. But I pulled my—

    a review / reaction to TKG √A.

    The amount of scorned Tokyo Ghoul √A received from manga elitist had me rolling my eyes for the entire course of the series. I actually prefer reading the genuine reaction of anime only viewers than the spiteful comments those said fans had been complaining every single episode. Granted that TGA was far from perfect but the recurrent protests were getting out of hand (annoying even). I’m a manga reader, currently up-to-date with the sequel. When the anime production announced that—

    The Great Shoujo Rec Post (Part 1)

    I’ve been in a shoujo manga spree for some time now (like months). Reading one shots, rereading old favorites and especially searching for new ones. And here I am sharing the love. I’m going to segregate this topic into three part posts. ① Fairly New / Currently Ongoing (20+ chapters the most) ② Josei Series ③ One Shots / Completed (short series, 1-2 volumes) This is the first installment. I think I found some great reads that I’m now currently—

    The thing about clichés—

    is that: I don’t hate them. I actually liked them. They are good tools. They are very great starting point. I don’t necessarily fault a book/story when it showcases clichés, tropes. In all honesty, there are good ones that despite the predictability I still ended up loving it. This cemented the idea that to me they aren’t the reason that drags the book down. I think it is always depends on how it is used, as I said they are—

    My Favorite Bookworm Characters!

    It’s nice to know when some of the characters I read have the same passion as I am. Especially if this character is a favorite of mine. It made them more appealing and interesting to me. One of those that instantly pique my interest is when a character is a bookworm too. I am a bookworm; it’s nice to know that these characters I love also have intense love for reading. I was gathering characters I’ve read/watch and sadly, it—

    February in a Nutshell!

    It’s hard to believe that February flew by just like that. I know it’s the shortest month of the year but still, it went so fast! But you know what was (is still is) slow last month? That’s right, my reading pace. 3.3 I’m so, so behind my reading challenge something that never happened in the last five years. I blame my constant procrastination for that. Oh well. Monthly Highlight! Left to right: The Great ‘OTP’ Post!; Breaking some stereotypes!—
