I Brought LOADS of Books\Manga! (April & May collective Haul)

Soo I may have been a little excessive in my book buying but when you read manga you get through them really fast! I’ve read most of these books already so I don’t feel too bad about it. My bank account disagrees with me though …

I’m not going to ramble on and on so here are the books I brought in the months of April and May ūüôā

April

BOOKS Haul 1.png

Fairy Tail Volumes 5 & 7 by Hiro Mashima

I only brought 5 & 7 because I brought them for my sister. She is collecting them at the minute so I’ll read them eventually.

Shaman King by Hiroyuki Takei 

Volumes 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 & 26

Yeah … at least I’ve read all of them ūüôā

The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith 

The Silkworm

I want to continue to collect these to add to my JKR collection. I’ve read Cuckoo’s Calling and really enjoyed it so I’m hoping that I like this one too.

Death note 456.png

Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba & Takeshi Obata

Volumes 4, 5 & 6

I still haven’t read the last two volumes of this yet because I know what is going to happen but I don’t want to go through it again. I will get past it eventually but the pain is still real.

Shaman King by Hiroyuki Takei 

Volumes 27, 28, 29, 30, 31 & 32

I finished the series by getting these and I am debating over doing a blog post talking about this series. I might try one out and if I like it I’ll post it. I have a lot of feelings about this series of books.


Looks like I was better than I thought last month. I thought I brought way more but I stand corrected. I really should start planning these ahead of time before writing them but it is a hard habit to break. I am really pleased with myself actually seeing as I have read almost all of these books. It feels like it at least. Now that I have completed my Shaman King collection I plan to finish another series I began collecting a long time ago. Thankfully I am only missing five books, three of which I have already purchased and are on their way to me.

There are a total of 24 books here! Wow I need to slow it down a pace. As I said now that I have finished my collection I doubt I will be buying as many books in such a small space of time but I can’t tell the future so we’ll have to wait and see.

I am bound to have missed something off but that is all I’m going to leave you with for now.

Thanks for reading ūüôā

Until Next Time,

Intimidating TBR Tag

I saw this tag going around on youtube last month and really enjoyed watching everyone’s videos so I decided to have a go at it myself. I don’t have the biggest TBR that I’ve ever seen, in fact I have been steadily whittling it down over the past few months (hope I didn’t just jinx it) but I still have enough to easily do this tag. The original video for this tag has been taken down so I can’t credit the creator but if I could I would ūüôā

What book have you been unable to finish?

The Hobbit

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien 

I tried reading this back when the first Hobbit film was released or around that time anyway and I made it halfway through before putting it down. I didn’t even make a conscious decision to stop reading i just forgot about it to be honest. I plan to try reading this again at some point but I think I want to try reading LotR first before going back.

What book have you yet to read but haven’t had the time?¬†fellowship of the ring

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

Have you seen the size of this book? My edition at least has tiny writing which hurts my eyes after a while. I might invest in a better edition before trying this but we’ll see. This has been nagging at me for a while now so I might get around to this sooner than I think.

What book have you yet to read because it is a sequel?

Lunar

 

 Cress by Marissa Meyer

Third in a series still counts right? I read Cinder and loved it. I read Scarlet: eh it was okay. Of course because I had mixed feelings about Scarlet it has put me off reading Cress. I want to carry on with the series though because I have heard nothing but good things about all of the other books and companion books in the series. I would like to complete my collection too but I can’t in good conscious buy the rest of the books when I still haven’t read Cress!

What book have you yet to read because it is brand new?

This Savage Song

This Savage Song by V.E. Schwab

What book have you yet to read because¬†you read a book by the same author and didn’t enjoy it?

fangirl and carry on

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell 

I didn’t enjoy Fangirl. I have made no secret of it. There was something about the story I could not connect to and maybe it was because at the time I read it it was too close to my own situation for me to enjoy it. I don’t know but because I didn’t enjoy Fangirl it has made me a little reluctant to read this. I love the sound of the synopsis though and liked the Simon Snow parts of Fangirl hence why I brought it. I’ll read it eventually but I don’t know when yet.

What book are you yet to read because you’re just not in the mood for it?¬†

Assassins Apprentice

Assassins Apprentice by Robin Hobb

I really want to read this but every time I look at it I am reminded that this is the first book in a massive series of books and it just causes me to skip over it.

What book have you yet to read because it is humongous?

6421982

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin 

I think this is a popular answer for this question. It would not surprise me in the least. This is a beast of a book and the others in the series are nothing to ignore either!

What book have you yet to read because it was a cover buy and it ended up not having very good reviews? 

17402605

The Alchemyst by Micheal Scott

Technically this was not a cover buy it was an impulse buy. One of the youtubers I follow recommended this book when I first started watching Booktube videos and I decided to buy it. I still haven’t read it and I am not even sure what it is about. I assume it has something to do with magic though by the title.

What is the most intimidating book on your TBR?

Battle Royale

Battle Royale by  Koushun Takami, Translated by Nathan Collins

I’ve read a quarter of this and it took me an age! The gore and the writing style took me a long time to get to grips with not to mention the amount of names you have to remember. It makes it a little hard to connect with the characters and be sad about their deaths when you can’t even remember their names.

Who do I tag?

If you’re interested in doing this tag and have yet to do it then please feel free, if you do it because you’ve read this post then please leave a comment and a link I’d love to see your answers.

I know it has been a while since I last did a blog post but I was feeling uninspired for a while I have a few ideas for upcoming posts so I should be posting new content soon ūüôā

Thank you for reading and,

Until Next Time,
