Alanna: The First Adventure was a lovely book full of spunky characters, magic, humor, and lots of action. The ending was a bit rushed but it did not disappoint! Can't wait to read the sequel!  Find out more about this book.

Review
Okay, Volume 9 was a bit of a filler if you ask me. Although, the cover is really cute! The Cherry Blossom Alliance! I loved the random modeling gig that just appeared out of nowhere: even though it was unrealistic, it was lovely to see them dress up. I just love all the artwork as well!   Find out more about this book.

Review
Volume 2 of the Ouran High School Host Club manga was cute and sweet. Whilst it was a bit surrealistic and over-the-top, I loved all of the characters and the artwork was exquisite. The problem of so many different mangas is that the artwork starts to look similar to other artists' artwork. In Bisco Hatori's artwork, everything is unique and adorable!   Find out more about this book.

Fruits Basket Vol. 6

Review
Volume 6 of this manga was soooooo sweet! A ginormous breakthrough happened in the plot and it was adorable to see Tohru come to terms with Kyo's inner demons. This manga seems to be able to take dark turns while keeping the tone of the book cute and light-hearted. That is no easy feat. This is probably one of my favorite volumes of the Fruits Basket manga.  Find out more about this book.

Interesting plot and story. My very first horror book and in fact a pretty good first impression! After answering many simple yet twisted questions four kids are precisely chosen for this unknown "journey". Anouk (main character) has decided to leave her home and join the Sapanis and their expedition on exploring the Palace de Papillons or known as the Palace of Butterflies in English. Hundreds of feet below the sea level Anouk and her 3 friends are unexpectedly trapped with no one to trust and count on. Now what might their future bring upon them next?  Find out more about this book.

Review
Actual Rating: 3.75 stars
First of all, I would like to say that the cover is absolutely gorgeous!
Siege and Storm is the sequel to Shadow and Bone, and honestly, the second book was way better. Siege and Storm had much loss, choices that could rip the world apart and way higher stakes. The main character, Alina, seems to be taking to power well. She has become greedy, selfish, threatens innocent people just because and yet, I cling to her, hoping that she gets better and redeems herself in the third book. My favorite character in the first book was Mal and I hated how he had to suffer in Alina's hands just because she was too selfish to let go of him. I hope he finds someone better than ALina and who actually sees him for himself. Anyway, there were many new characters introduced in this book and sometimes it was confusing to remember who's who. A new character was introduced: Nikolai who is now my new favorite character. And, he falls in love with Alina. Big whoop. Every single powerful guy she meets somehow falls in love with her: Nikolai, Mal and the Darkling. I can guess she is going to end up either with the Darkling or will sacrifice herself or go evil in the third book.
The plot was a bit slow-paced: there was a lot of talking and making plans and wallowing in self-pity in the middle of the book but it gets better in the end.
