    The great ‘short shoujo’ reads!

    This is the last part of my great shoujo rec post. This post are for those who don’t have time & doesn’t like to invest on long series: my answer, short series. You know actually I’m kinda sad some of ‘em ended like that. I think they have potential but sadly was cut short. Anyways, we don’t have a say on that but still think that despite the length I still find them very enjoyable and worth the read. Yajirobee—

    The Ultimate Book Tag!

    Do you get sick while reading in the car? Even if I’m sitting still I get sick much more if I’m reading. Anything that moves while I’m in it tend to make me dizzy. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why? I would also say Tahere Mafi but the style was because of Juliette’s personality. So this time I’ll choose Sui Ishida. I know it’s not a novel per se but I never had read something—

    How closely should fiction mirror real life?

    This is such an unpopular opinion but I’m not really that disappointed with stories I read that doesn’t closely mirror real life, even for contemporary stories. For someone who views reading as a form of escape, I’d rather not see too much similarities. I don’t know, I always have thick line between what’s real life and what’s fiction. So no, I don’t believe in everything I read but I know which ones to enjoy, regardless. It does not mean I—

    On Spotlight: Liar Game

    I admit that the reason I kept off of reading this & placed it at backburner was because of the art. I’m not particularly fond of it. My desire for a more aesthetic pleasing character design toppled the very intriguing plotline. In fact, it was one of the series I put on my TBR list when I was scouting for new seinen series to read. I was wrong. Really wrong. Liar Game is such an amazing read. As of writing,—
