April Books

I read more books than I should have this month. A lot of my choices reflect trying to avoid working on my research paper (which I had to scrap 2 wks out from it being due to start over with a new topic. Yay!). Two more weeks and this semester is finally over! I have a stack of books I desperately want to read.

*Ruby in the Smoke was interesting. Not great literature, but it reminded me of the Vesper Holly books by Lloyd Alexander. I will read the rest of the trilogy once my semester is done.
*I also liked Cress. She does a good job tweaking the fairy tales, but still staying true to the basic plot lines of each. I can’t wait for the final book to come out.
*The two Marie Hall books pretty much represent my need to escape from the fact that my research paper on top of everything else is crushing me.

*We FINALLY finished HP3. And I never realized it until this time, but the phrase, “Harry, Ron, and Hermione” was used to point that one could base a drinking game around it.

To keep the post from being to unwieldy, I’ve only listed the first volumes of a given series.
*Private Prince, entire series
*Honey x Honey Drops, entire series (I just read this in January, so second time round for this year)
*Midnight Secretary, entire series (The drawings bothered me less this time around, though I still don’t like where the story ends)
*Demon Love Spell, vols 1-5 (I liked it better this time, though I’m still hazy on some of the details of why and how Kagura falls for Miko in the first place)
*Crazy Girl Shin Bia, entire series (I wish this was available in print in English. I would buy it in a heartbeat.)
*Barajou no Kiss, entire series
*Soulless, vol 3 and vol 1
*Horimiya, up to ch 35 (Nice little slice of life manga)
