Better later than never xD As I keep telling myself with everything lately haha
April Wrap Up
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
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?
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!
Heroine Shikkaku Volume 4
Orange Volume 2
Mistborn: The Well of Ascension
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!)
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.
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:
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?
We are in the final month of the year which is exceedingly crazy! This year has gone FAST!
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss (4.5/5)
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.
The Well of Ascension and I started Heroin Shikakku Volume 4 today too!
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!
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?!
Two months left to go – holy crap!! But alas let us move onto what you came for: Book Information!
Not gunna lie… I didn’t finish a single book! I did read my monthly manga chapters but that’s literally all I ‘completed’ but getting through an almost 700 page book in a month is impressive (Name of the Wind) so I am very happy rather than disappointed xD
I was currently reading The Name of the Wind BUT I finished it yesterday!!! ❤
Review will be up for it soon, but just so you know: I LOVED IT!
So now my Currently Reading is:
I’m thinking of also continuing the Heroin Shikkaku and Orange manga this month.
Also, quick reminder I am participating in NaNoWriMo!
If you are too then lets be buds! My link is here.
I still haven’t gotten a solid plan but the past few days I’ve been filling in the 4 ideas that I have in my head and they’re getting very fleshed out and meaty which is great so hopefully I’ll have a solid decision and begin seriously writing soon! *yes I am counting my planning words as a word count – no shame!*
How was your October Reading Month? I know quite a few people on here got through 10+ books – congrats!! What is your November TBR or Currently Reading? HAVE A GREAT NOVEMBER READING MONTH!!
It’s that time of the month AGAIN! Only 3 month wrap ups left for the year!! Now don’t panic! xD sorry, my bad there hehe
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (4/5)
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (2/5)
Mary, Mary Quite Contrary (The Grimm Diaries Prequels #5) by Cameron Jace* (4/5)
Blood Apples (The Grimm Diaries Prequels #6) by Cameron Jace* (3/5)
Heroin Shikkaku Volume 3 by Kouda Momoko (3/5)
*Will review asap
My favourite for the month was obviously Ember xD but Mary, Mary was so good too!!! ^_^ A fairly decent reading month – shhhh I know 4 of the books are technically cheats due to A. lack of pages or B. full of pictures but shhh! xD
I am seriously enjoying this! I was confused at first cos I knew vaguely what it’s about but didn’t start in a way that fitted the plot I knew. But we’ve gotten onto the plot now xD This book will probably take me the entire month, maybe even November, especially when I’ll probs be reading manga in between too xD
How was your month?
I’ve been quiet I know! But at least I remember to post Wrap Up’s every month! I am thinking of doing a big Top Ten Tuesday post soon which will be a mix of any of the past TTT’s that I’ve missed but want to do xD sound good? Okay! Now let’s get into the Wrap Up!
Heroine Shikkaku Volume 1
Heroine Shikkaku Volume 2
Orange Volume 1
Station Eleven – DNF’d (got 40% in, it bored me. It’s not SF at all!)
A Court of Thorns and Roses – DNF’d (got two chapters in. The main characters bitchiness towards her sisters and how they treat each other seriously put me off teh book.)
The reason I haven’t posted any reviews for these is because A. I want to do whole Manga reviews not just one per volume,and B. I see no point in reviewing DNF’d books on their own so I’ll either not do them at all or I’ll put them in one big ‘DNF review’ post thing. What does everyone think?
I am currently reading An Ember in the Ashes and enjoying it a lot! I’m definitely more interested in Elias’ story than Laia’s but her story is interesting too, but things seem to be too convenient for her and I feel no real sense of danger in her story. BUT I am seriously enjoying it!
After this I was thinking reading one of the three things below:
- Work on my ARCs (and finally have them all read, but that is like 30 books. But work through them and either read them or just cancel my review of them).
- Brandon Sanderson marathon (the fact I’ve still only read The Final Empire by him is a freaking joke! Why haven’t I read all his books yesterday even though I was blown away from the first book I read of his?! It’s ridiculous!)
- Read Name of the Wind – I’ve been listening to Pat Rothfuss’ podcast these past few weeks and I love him as a person and it makes me wanna read his book even more!
So what do you think I should do? How was your August and what is your Sept. TBR?
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!
Otomen Volume 1
Otomen Volume 2
Otomen Volume 3
Death Note Volume 13
Armada by Ernest Cline
As you can tell, more of these were read during the Summer Cram-a-Thon! >.<
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.
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?
I have a announcement tomorrow so it’s better to post my WU/TBR today instead of two posts tomorrow ^_^

Total Pages: 2573

I know what you’re thinking ‘but most of that was manga!’ yeah true they don’t technically count but… technically they do! xP
Well… I have a pile of books on my floor which I wanted to get through before I went to Japan… want to see those books? Here you go! Cos they’re this month’s TBR!
Oh dear…. don’t believe me? Here you go!
HAHA! There is NO way in hell I’m getting through ALL those books in 26 days! Whatta shame I can’t =[ so looks like my suitcase and handluggage will be having more books in than anticipated!
What did you read in June? What do you suggest I read first? Long books first? Quick books first? IS THIS DO-ABLE?! What will you read this July? Let me know in the comments below!
We’re in June already?! Noooo! I only have about 7 more weeks left til the end of summer… but at the same time, ugh I’ve still got 7 more weeks left of summer >.< I participated in two read-a-thons this past month so check my progress out here and here.

Vampire Knight Art Book by Hino Matsuri (5/5) – because it was perfect for a VK fan!
Kuroshitsuji Chapter 105
I also lemmed The Jungle Book and Car Fever this month too! Reasons being The Jungle Book caused me to have ‘Friend like you’ from the Disney movie in my head every single time I read and drove me insane. Car Fever was just too… car-like? xD
And I read about half way through the next The Grimm Diaries Prequels story (#4) and 244 pages of The Vampire Lestat.
Total Pages: 746 Pages! An amazing improvement for me =]
Day Read in Month: 21 out of 31 days
Average Pages Per Day: 35 pages
Average Pages Per Week: 186 pages
A pretty good dent and start to my summer reading! Almost already a 1/3 of the way to my desired 3000 pages read goal!
As already said I’m currently reading two books so they are naturally on this TBR…
After these, I seriously will start these three books. These three books I definitely must read with all my heart this month and I know I’ll love them and I just gotta jump in!
And obviously the #YearofCosmere is going on so the books I’m supposed to read for this month are:
But we’ll see if I get time after those three epics >.<
What did you read in May? What will you read this June? Let me know in the comments below!
