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 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,

March Book Haul

Wow I need to control my book buying! I brought way too much manga this month jeez!

I think I’ll start this off by straying from the usual books and show you some new Pop Funk figures I brought for my shelves as a nice change from all the books and links.

SAM_1977

I brought Sirius when I realised it was an option. Sirius is one of my favourite Harry Potter characters and I own the most memorabilia dedicated to him so buying this was a must.

I brought Vegeta on Tuesday (29th) when I went shopping. I saw him in the window and I couldn’t resist him, he’s so cute!

Okay. Enough about the figures and on to the actual books. I brought a total of fourteen books this month and I’m a little disgusted with myself but I don’t regret it. I’ve actually mostly read all of them too. (I just counted. I’ve read 9 of them.)

These aren’t in any particular order, I can’t be bothered to go look up what order I brought them in.

Animal Crossing: Wild World Game Guide

I made an impulsive buy a few weeks ago and got the game. I brought this because I remembered that there were patterns that I could make in the game that were in this book. Sad I know.

Death Note, Black Editions 1, 2 & 3 by Tsugumi Ohba, Takeshi Obata (Illustrator) & Translated by Alexis Kirsch

I feel as if I have talked about this countless times in the past month so I won’t go into the details here. These books each have two editions of the manga in them so technically these are six volumes.

FullMetal Alchemist 3-in-1 Volume 2 by Hiromu Arakawa 

Another impulse buy but when I saw it in Waterstones I couldn’t resist it. I read the first book in the series last year but didn’t continue reading. Something must have distracted me. I loved the anime though so I want to carry on reading the manga.

Bleach 3-in-1 Volume 1 by Tite Kubo

 

I’ve read this book before but I borrowed it off of a friend and now that I am watching the anime I wanted to re-read it and start collecting the books.

Blue Exorcist:

Volume 6

Volume 7

Volume 8

Volume 9

Volume 10

Volume 11

by Kazue Kato

Yeah. I’ve brought more than this but they haven’t come yet so they’re not included. I’m still loving this manga series and I have almost caught up to the books now. Book 15 comes out in¬†May.

Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell 

I don’t actually know what this short story is about but I saw it in the shop and saw that it was only ¬£1 so I picked it up to read when I’m in a bit of a slump.

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare 

I brought this just to add to my collection. I have been told that I can’t read this until I’ve finished reading the Infernal Devices so I need to wait until I’ve done that. It is such a pretty book though that I couldn’t resist it when I saw it…

SAM_1980 (2)Well these are all of the books that I brought in March. I’m sure my neighbours are getting sick of my parcels being delivered to them when I’m at work but what can you do? I am thinking of going on a book buying ban soon so hopefully this month my book haul won’t be as big.

Have you read any of these books? What do you think I should read first?

Until Next Time,

TTT – Ten Books On My Spring TBR

TTT

This week we were given the topic of talking about ten books that are on our reading list for the season of Spring. I must admit I was quite happy with this topic because I just recently decided to follow my 2016 TBR list in order, or close enough but there are a few books I plan to read that are not on that list. Here is my chance to talk about them or at least mention them.

If you’re interested in joining in with us then head on over to Broke and Bookish for the details ūüôā

NUMBER 1

Vicious

Vicious by V.E. Schwab (CURRENTLY READING)

This book is the next book on my books to read this year so I thought to myself that there was no reason to not read this and I have heard nothing but good things about it. I’m going into this book mostly blind so I don’t really know what to expect.

NUMBER 2, 3, 4 & 5

Death Note.png

Death Note, Black Edition Volume 3 (CURRENTLY READING)

Death Note, Black Edition Volume 4

Death Note, Black Edition Volume 5

Death Note, Black Edition Volume 6

by Tsugumi Ohba, Takeshi Obata (Illustrator), Pookie Rolf (Translator) & Alexis Kirsch (Translator)

I’m currently reading Volume Two right now (13th) so I might be finished with it by the time this is published so I haven’t included it seeing as it isn’t Spring quite yet. Nevertheless I want to continue collecting these books and finish reading them. I watched the anime last week, week before, and immediately fell in love with it. I don’t know why I haven’t watched it sooner as I’ve known about it for years. I’ve heard that the manga finishes a little differently than the anime so it’ll be interesting to see if that’s true.

NUMBER 6

Battle Royale

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami & Nathan Collins (Translator)

I don’t know if I am going to start this book from the beginning again or just carry on from where my bookmark still is. I remember the film pretty well so I don’t think I’ll be too lost but maybe I should re-watch it before hand just to get my facts right in my head. It has been about a year since I last tried reading it…

NUMBERS 7, 8 & 9

Blue Exorcist Spring 2016.png

Blue Exorcist Volume 9

Blue Exorcist Volume 10

Blue Exorcist Volume 11

by Kazue Kato

Still loving this series and I can’t wait to continue reading. I am catching up with the books they have released now so I only have a few more books to collect.

NUMBER 10

carry on

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I put this on here because it seems to be a rather light hearted book and I thought I needed at least one book on here that isn’t too action packed. I needed at least one YA book on here after all ūüôā


Well that was a nice short list. This year has been all about manga for me so far. I’ve only read a few books and managed to finish one series off. What books I have been reading though are some books that I have been wanting to read for quite a while so I’m pretty happy with that. For example I finally got around to reading Memoirs of a Geisha which has been on my TBR shelf for three years!

Have you read any of these books? Any you think I should get to ASAP?

As always I’d love to see your TTT posts, I’m interested to see what kind of books you’ll be reading this Spring so feel free to link it in the comments.

Until Next Time,
