Happy end of September! This month, I purchased four books and a buttload of manga. I’ve also put myself on a mini-ban since buying these, around mid-Sept, and it’ll last basically until we can save up enough for my husband to buy a new computer monitor, so about a month or so. Gotta give and take, y’know.
Anyways, here are the books!
The Girl From the Other Side vols 1-3 by Nagare – I originally borrowed vol 1 from a friend, and ended up reading it and giving it four stars. I decided I wanted to get the series myself and continue it, so here we are!
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime vol 1 by Fuse – This is actually the light novel, and I picked it up to fulfill the LitRPG square in Fantasy Bingo. I needed a game world, man! Isekai! I liked the anime well enough so I figured this’d be perfect.
Inuyasha vol 23 by Rumiko Takahashi – I’ve had a lot of volumes of this forever, picking them up second-handed when I see them. With this addition, I now have 1-24, 26 and 39. One day I’ll have them all, dammit.
Fruits Basket vols 14-17, 19-21 by Natsuki Takaya – Same as Inuyasha above, I picked these up second-hand. They didn’t have vols 18, 22 or 23, or I would have gotten those too. Next time!
O Maidens in Your Savage Season by Mari Okada – I am absolutely in love with this series. It’s so heartwarming and funny and cringey, and reminds me of how I was when I was 14 or 15 years old. It’s just so great. Currently I have all the volumes that are out, but I think volume 4 comes out in October. I’ll pick it up as soon as the ban is done. I wrote a review of the first volume, if you’re interested.
The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Adieh – I liked the first one juuust enough to get this. I saw it for six bucks on the bargain shelf, so I scooped it up. 😀
Girls with Sharp Sticks by Suzanne Young – This book sounded really good. I’m hoping I can buzz through it quickly!
Alice by Christina Henry – I’ve heard so many good things about this book. A few of my coworkers have read it at this point and really enjoyed it, so I’m hoping I like it too!
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames – I bought this for two reasons. The first is it was a personal rec from the users of r/Fantasy, so it fulfills that bingo square for me. Second, it’s a comedy fantasy. My nanowrimo project – sneak peak – is a comedy fantasy, so I plan on reading some others just to get a feel of how people are incorporating humor and world building. So I plan on getting to this one within the next month!
And that’s it! I think I got some pretty damn good ones this month. Have you read any of the above? Lemme know! Happy reading!
