Living-Room Matsunaga-san - Manga Series Review

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed any manga on here! To be honest, it’s been a while since I read any manga. I love manga, but I read so fast that I feel I can get through a volume in like 30 minutes... and when a series runs for 11 volumes at about $13 for each one; it adds up. 

So I usually just have to relay on my library and they rarely have what I like to read and scans are so unreliable. BUT, I could find all the volumes that are out right now at my library! I read them all in two days! 

And because I was so hooked, I looked the other two volumes up online as scans. I don’t feel so bad about it because this series is one I’m going to buy and read repeatedly. 

It’s not perfect by any means. There is a very large age between the Meeko and her love interest. Which isn’t bad... but she’s underage; in high school. He’s a grown adult. 

That part really messed with my head, but I tried to remember that not only was it fiction, but other cultures differ from ours and have different standards for things. So I let it go. It wasn’t like they were having sex... he barely even kissed her and told her they wouldn’t even officially together until she graduated high school. So I mean... that’s good...

Moving on!

The art is simple and beautiful! I love everything looks realistic, nothing crazy as seen in a lot Shonen manga. I like that! I always prefer more Shojo styles. They are softer and more romantic. 

This series is very slow moving between our two main characters, so to make up for this, we get little side plots between other characters that live in the boarding house and I really enjoyed these! I fell in love with these characters and it hurt when they finally moved out of the house. I felt Meeko’s pain at being left behind. 

The mangaka did such a great job at making these characters feel real and I loved Meeko got to see that even though they are all adults; they don’t have their shit together like teenagers often assume. 

This is a cute manga that hooked me. I couldn’t stop reading. I still feel that Ryo-ken deserved better than what we got, but not all endings can be happy, I guess. 

If you like manga, or are thinking about diving in, this is easy to adjust to and sweet as can be.

(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. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. 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. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. 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

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

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,
