April Wrap Up

魔界王子 devils and realist 1 [Makai Ouji by Madoka TakadonoBranded by Abi Ketner

I was hella busy the last two or so weeks of April so didn’t get much time to read but I did finish one manga volume and the book Branded, which I gave 2 stars to even though it had an amazing start.

May Currently Reading

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson魔界王子 devils and realist 2 [Makai Ouji by Madoka TakadonoOyasumi Jack the Ripper

For May I’ve already finished Elantris (which I LOVED!) and one more manga volume which I’ll continue reading cos I’m seeing the Stage of it next month so I must be all caught up on i << that’s how my OCD works xD I’m also still working on the Japanese version of Oyasumi Jack the Ripper which I like anyay but it’s so weird!

And that’s all. How was your April and May?

January – March Wrap Up and April CR!

I have been neglecting this blog WAY too much and I sincerely apologise. If you’ve written any blogs the past three months that you’re proud of and want me to see then please let me know, cos I want to read them!! So let’s get this done!

January Wrap Up

The Circle by Myka RamosOrange 3 by Ichigo TakanoOrange 4 by Ichigo TakanoThe Princess of Egypt Must Die by Stephanie DrayThe Hero and the Fiend by Glenn G. ThaterA Dark Kiss of Rapture by Sylvia DayOrange 5 by Ichigo TakanoThe Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

 I read a bunch of shorter novellas in January so I could get an easy head start on my reading goal incase I feel behind (which already happened xD). I also finished the heartbreaker than is Orange and I intend to make a review of the entire series, as well as finishing Mistborn after a 3 year journey ❤ Reviews for the novellas can be found here but I still haven’t made reviews for anything else just yet – sorry!

February Wrap Up

The Martian by Andy Weir

I had some down time with in February and took my time (not really cos I was hooked) reading The Martian all month. Review yet to come sorry =/

March Wrap Up

I marathoned and finished the last 12 volumes of Gantz this past week! I am so happy I’m finally done with the series after reading it for like 4 years xD I’ll make an overall review of the series when I have time. In March I continued and caught up with Kuroshitsuji and Shingeki no Kyojin (I was about 4 or 5 chapters behind on both of them!)

Currently Reading

ElantrisBranded (Sinners, #1)Makai Ouji: Devils and RealistOyasumi Jack the Ripper

During March I started Elantris and I’m enjoying it a lot so far and I love how it’s one a three-character-POV-cycle and I love the world and I’m excited to know more! I also started Branded this week (it’s an ARC I’ve had for like 3 years!) and I have to say, I’m pleasantly enjoying yet another YA book. It’s even had me want to cry at least twice too! Other than that I started two manga series in March too and still reading them. They are Makai Ouji- Devils and Realist (watch the anime last week and I intend to see the stage play of it in June!), and Oyasumi Jack the Ripper (already bought my ticket to watch the stage play of it on April 22nd so had to do my research and homework before watching it!).

—-

And that’s my massive update done!! I am currently at 21 books out of 45 for my reading goal which is great but I understand some people would see ALL the manga and class manga as cheating but I really don’t xD Once again I apologise for the lack of updates but I’m just so busy. If I’m not working I’m either reading, watching TV, writing movie/drama reviews, translating, studying or going to concerts/stage plays/musicals/baseball games. So I am very sorry!

What are you reading this month?

December Wrap Up and January CR/TBR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you had a great Eve and I hope you have a brilliant NY day! ^_^ Mine will be spent in bed which is the best thing for me!! ^_^ So onto the wrap up!

Wrap Up

Heroine Shikkaku Volume 4
Orange Volume 2
Mistborn: The Well of Ascension

The Well of Ascension by Brandon SandersonOrange 2 by Ichigo TakanoHeroine Shikkaku vol.4 by Momoko Kouda

I finally did it! At 10:30pm last night I finally finished The Well of Ascension! After putting off reading the book for over 2 years(!), I finally got the guts to pick it up and it was amazing! (review coming soon!)

Currently Reading

Nothing. I do want to start Hero of Ages very soon but I think I’m gunna break the 2 and 3 book up by reading a smaller book in between but no idea what that will be. Probably a manga.

TBR

The new year always brings about a new motivation for reading so I’ve been thinking that I’d like to get through these this month:

The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, #3)Orange 3 (オレンジ, #3)

I have a quiet month socially (unlike December which was crazy!) so should be able to get more reading done ^_^

What are your Wraps Up and TBRs for December and January?

November WU, December CR + NaNoWriMo!

We are in the final month of the year which is exceedingly crazy! This year has gone FAST!

Wrap Up:

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (4.5/5)

The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #1)

I’ve also read about 25% of Well of Ascension and I am really enjoying it but I was more preoccupied with TV and NaNo in November to seriously stick my teeth into it.

Currently Reading:

The Well of Ascension and I started Heroin Shikakku Volume 4 today too!

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

I have less than 30 days to read about 10 books – that ain’t gunna happen and I ain’t worried. I’ll have about 12 days off work this month so fingers crossed I can get some serious reading done in that time!

Also, NaNoWriMo!

nanologo

 

I did not complete NaNoWrimo, I only got about 12,000ish words BUT I don’t feel guilty or unaccomplished xD It was close to my personal goal which was 15,000 words so that’s great! I wanna finally get serious about writing and so between now and Camp NaNoWriMo, I wanna finish the story I began this NaNo and then once Camp comes around, I wanna start a new story for that and then work on that until the next NaNo and – you see the cycle plan I have going – but we will see. I always have LOTS of goals every year and never really complete any of them. So we’ll see.

How was your November Reading Month? What is your December TBR or Currently Reading? Are you freaking out that it’s the last month of the year?!

July Wrap Up and August CR!

Sorry for the late reply! Just started training for my new work and so suddenly doing 9 hours of work a day has really shaken up my system and schedules. But here my wrap up is finally here!

Wrap Up

As you can tell, more of these were read during the Summer Cram-a-Thon! >.<

Currently Reading

Because I’m not properly entering adulthood and the society of adults, I have no idea how my schedule will turn out nor how much time I’ll have to read (although so far, it’s only been about 2 weeks but, I’ve had more time to read). So for the time being, we’ll stick to ‘currently reading’ and not TBRs.

Station Eleven

I’m about 25% through this. Started this on the 30th. Honestly, it’s really boring me. People said it was SF and it’s really not. It’s currently a boring story in a post-apoc world =/

How was your month? Also, anyone read Station Eleven? Does it get better?
