              2479087 1627 10710392 21495379 7338243 7326875 8174533 9361864 10226366 10416148 12354715 13259308 15803935 16146273 18143841 186031 1227852 43755 43756 17372039 17347384 17347383 12970552 17571798 10105459 15818308 16248068 187811 38980 439275 22301535 111450

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han (REVIEW): 5/5 stars and quite possibly the best book I’ve read all year!

Before Watchmen: Minutemen/Silk Spectre by Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner (REVIEW): 3/5 stars. Definitely my least favorite out of the entire prequel series.

Before Watchmen: Nite Owl/Dr. Manhattan by J. Michael Strackzynski and Adam Hughes (REVIEW): 4/5 stars and probably my second favorite of the series!

Before Watchmen: Comedian/Rorschach by Brian Azzarello and J.G. Jones (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. Finally got to read about my favorite character (Rorschach) and was not disappointed!

It by Alexa Chung (REVIEW): 2/5 stars. Ugh this book was so dumb. No review on my blog but you can see it on Goodreads.

Phantom Dream Vol. 1 by Natsuki Takaya: 3/5 stars. This is the same person who wrote Fruits Basket which I loved, but I don’t like this series that much…

Phantom Dream Vol. 2 by Natsuki Takaya: 3/5 stars. Again not my favorite but I’m invested enough in the plot to finish the series.

Phantom Dream Vol. 3 by Natsuki Takaya: 3/5 stars. I’m now halfway through the series and still only have a slight idea of what’s going on because of my disinterest. Still want to see this series through though.

Phantom Dream Vol. 4 by Natsuki Takaya: 3/5 stars. Series is getting better towards the end. I think the author is getting the hang of the style more.

Phantom Dream Vol. 5 by Natsuki Takaya: 3/5. Last of the series and the ending was alright. Definitely not one of my favorite mangas.

Watching the Watchmen: The Definitive Companion to the Ultimate Graphic Novel by Dave Gibbons (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! Oh my goodness I loved this so much!

The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. Very different from the movie, but a great story overall!

Entwined by Colette Gale: 4/5 stars. One of those novellas that you read in secret and make you blush the whole time!

Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman’s Guide to Why Feminism Matters by Jessica Valenti (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! This is now my go-to feminist bible/guidebook!

Christmas in His Royal Bed by Heidi Betts: 2/5 stars. Ugh this was so awful. The main guy seemed rapey and creepy.

Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx (REVIEW): 4/5 stars. A short but powerful read!

Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! A beautiful and touching novel!

Return of the Loving Dead by Araminta Star Matthews and Stan Swanson (REVIEW): 3/5 stars and my first zombie novel!

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 1 by Kiiro Yumi (SERIES REVIEW): 5/5 stars! I think I’ve found my new favorite manga!

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 2 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars again! This is seriously the best!

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 3 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars, obviously. The series is getting more in depth and mysterious…

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 4 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars! Ugh such a cliffhanger!

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 5 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars! Must pick up the next volumes soon!

Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 6 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars again!

Library Wars, Love & War, Vol. 7 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars (which should really come as no surprise at this point)

Library Wars, Love & War, Vol. 8 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars

Library Wars, Love & War, Vol. 9 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars

Library Wars, Love & War, Vol. 10 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars

Library Wars, Love & War, Vol. 11 by Kiiro Yumi: 5/5 stars. Now I have to wait until September for the next one though *sob*

Azumanga Daioh, Vol. 1 by Kiyohiko Azuma (SERIES REVIEW): 5/5 stars! I think I’ve found another favorite manga!

Azumanga Daioh, Vol. 2 by Kiyohiko Azuma: 5/5 stars, this just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

Azumanga Daioh, Vol. 3 by Kiyohiko Azuma: 5/5 stars again!

Azumanga Daioh, Vol. 4 by Kiyohiko Azuma: 5/5 stars for the last one in the series *sob*

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling (REVIEW): 5/5 stars obviously! Oh the foreshadowing!

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (REVIEW): 5/5 stars even though this is my least favorite of the series.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (REVIEW): 5/5 stars of course! Love this one so much.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! *sobs loudly in a corner*

Midnight Secretary, Vol. 1 by Tomu Ohmi: 5/5 stars! Another great manga! Can’t wait to read the rest!

A Bride’s Story, Vol. 1 by Kaoru Mori: 5/5 stars! Hands down the most beautiful manga I’ve ever read!

The Selection by Kiera Cass (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! This was great even the second time around!

The Elite by Kiera Cass (REVIEW): 3/5 and what a disappointment. I had such high hopes for this sequel…

Shadowland by Meg Cabot (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! So excited to start getting back into Meg Cabot’s writing.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot (REVIEW): 5/5 stars obviously! Love this series so much.

Princess in the Spotlight by Meg Cabot (REVIEW): 5/5 stars for the sequel as well!

Worth the Effort: Ayden’s Story by Kai Strand (REVIEW): 5/5 stars! I LOVED this so much! Everyone should read this series!
