Alright! I hope you're all having a good morning/afternoon/evening/night. I've got four reviews lined up today. Two of them are manga and two of them are New Age. So sink into a comfy seat, grab a snack and let's get to it!
All of these books came from NetGalley, but I will always be honest with my thoughts.
The first time I heard the term Earth Angel was from an old song by The Penguins, such an adorable song by the way! I hope you give it a listen. But I never really thought of the term any deeper than a cute song until I saw this book.
So, I'm not an Earth Angel, I'm an empath but not an Earth Angel and I've never met one either but it was awesome to learn what the author thinks on these subjects. I also love some of the ideas and exercises that are listed in this book and I've tried a few to help me and they work!
I do think this book could've been slimmed down a but because it felt a little repetitive at times but a lot of books about empaths do because the message is "TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!" over and over. Which makes sense, empaths often forget themselves to help others.
One word can sum up this book: adorable! It's sweet and heartfelt, the art is stunning and I loved watching the friendship grow between the two main characters and how they help each other when needed.
Now, while I would still recommend this title, it's not my personal favorite because it's just too wholesome. I like my stories to not be so... clean. I want more grit, darkness, adult content and all that good stuff. But it was nice to read a sweet story that left me smiling.
The writing is easy to understand and rich when it comes to the story of each card. I couldn't have asked for a better book to help me learn playing cards!
A must have for anyone who has ever wanted to know about this subject!
The art is lovely. Some of my favorite from the manga world. It's got an almost otherworldly feel to it. It's detailed and just light and pretty.
The story is another matter.... I don't hate the story but there's just some parts that make no sense to me and kinda threw me out of the story but as I've found, don't judge the first volume in a series like this. Why? So much set up is done so the story can actually move forward.
There's a nice little cliffhanger that really does make me want to pick up the next volume. So I can't wait to see where this goes. I just hope the story can live up to the art!
