Manga Monday - Ai Ore! Love Me! (1)

Mizuki is the female “prince” of her all-girls school and the lead guitarist in an all-girl rock band. Akira is the male “princess” of his all-boys school and wants to join her band. Love may be on his mind, but romance is difficult when everyone keeps mistaking Mizuki for a boy and Akira for a girl!

When the lead singer of Blaue Rosen announces she is moving overseas, Akira does all he can to convince Mizuki and her bandmates to let him join. But will a resistant Mizuki allow him into her band, much less her heart?

Manga Breakdown 

So it took me a while until I got into this manga. It was so hard for me to get straight who was who. My mind kept telling me that the guy was the girl and the girl was the guy. Once I got the hang of who was who. I really enjoyed this manga. 

I like that it's different from any other manga I've read and it's so much bigger than any manga I've seen, which was a plus for me. I have been cutting back on buying manga because I read them so fast that I feel they are too expensive for me right now so I really felt I got my money's worth out of this.

I will say Dark Akira creeped me out at times. There was times I could not even look at the drawings and my partner was laughing at me. 

This manga is fun, about a girl who is the 'prince' of her all girl's school and then we have a boy who is the 'princess' of his all boy's school. They like each other but manga is never that simple and so shit happens. Many times over. 

I like watching their struggle though all these things but there is one thing I think they took too far. The rape at the end of the manga. I don't know if the girl is actually going to be raped and I understand why Akira would want the girl raped for almost raping his girl but still. If you fight fire with fire... you get a bigger fire. 

Also rape is never okay. 

If you can look past that and just enjoy the manga for what it is. I will keep reading this series because I picked the whole thing up for $5 at Half Price Books and I didn't hate it. It's not the best manga and it's probably not for everyone but I actually liked it.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless.

Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes.

Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda
