A little update

Hey there Bookies,

I just started a blog with my mom where we talk about dramas that we watch either together or on our own. The blog is called Robison Drama Talk. You can find it by typing Robisondramatalk.blogspot.com in your browser. Not much to look at since we just started, but be sure to check it out. I'll probably keep up to date with that blog more than with this one since it's the dramas keeping me away from my reading.

So until next time...

Reading Asa

Hey there Bookies,

I really need to stop watching the Kdramas and get back to reading books again. But I have a new actor crush and I had to watch all of the shows he was in. Crushing so hard.

So Asa is the last installment of the Marked Men Series. Sad I know. I'm still a little lost since I waited so long to read this book. Not my fault by the way. There are just so many books to read. Anyways, nothing much has happened. I don't expect a lot to happen either when I'm only a quarter of the way through the book. Asa and Royal are in this little game of chase, well at least Royal is. Asa wants to but he thinks that he messed up too much to have a shot with her. Typical tortured soul in need of a new home. Just like every book in this series. But it still makes for a good book. Anyways, I wish I could write more, but I can't. I'm not far enough in the book to really say anything. I just wanted to make a post so you guys know that I'm still alive.

So until next time.....

Almost done reading The Calling

Hello Bookies,

I'm just a few pages short of finishing the book and now I know why I didn't finish the series way back when. Nothing really happens in the book really. Sure our main character finds the place where her birth parents lived. She even finds her mother's most treasured watch there. Then she gets tricked into walking right through the enemies door. Not smart of the girl to do. Anyways, she almost dies and almost gets her boyfriend killed. Only thing is that the leader of the enemy finds something that makes him stop what he is doing. Creating all the time Hunter needed to save the day. But our leading lady has a bit of a shock to her already complicated life. Turns out one of her birth parents weren't isn't who she thought they were. You must read the book to find out everything. Or, just go on Goodreads and read the description of the book. It's a big giveaway. But I'm going to head out for now. I'm not a fan of the book. Not a whole lot happens and it is kind of boring. But check it out if you want. It's still an interesting topic for the book to be based on. Not a whole lot of books out there about witches.

So until next time.....

Started reading Asa by Jay Crownover

Hello Bookies,

I didn't actually start this book since I'm still finishing up The Calling. But I thought I would let you guys know what the next book I'll be reading is going to be. This book is the last installment of the Marked Men Series and has been out for a while. I have been meaning to finish the series, but if I had to be honest, I kind of forgot all about it. I know I had to wait for the book to come out, but that was like two or three years ago. I guess out of all of the waiting, things came up and I forgot all about it. Luckily I went through my old reading list that I found and saw it on the list. So I requested it from the library and here it is. I'm not sure who we are focusing on here since it's been so long since I read the series. But I do know that Jay Crownover writes some pretty good books. Why don't you guys give me a list of her books to check out and I'll try to get to them as soon as I can. I feel like it just isn't fair to read only one series by her.

So until next time...

Reading The Calling

Hello Bookies,

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I am taking a lot longer than I thought I would with this book. Probably because I'm trying to remember the storyline. Also, I believe that I missed a book somewhere. Because Morgan, our leading lady, is dating Hunter, her evil ex-boyfriend's half-brother. I think. Anyways, I guess her ex-boyfriend wasn't evil because he ended up dying protecting her.  It still confuses me on when she started dating Hunter. So, I'm pretty sure I missed a book. Or, it's been so long and I just can't remember since it was like two or three years ago since I read the last book. I should really think about writing these things down. Anyways, I'm halfway through the book now or just about. They are all in New York hunting for something that focuses on Morgan's dream. Right now it's just them exploring and Hunter disappearing to figure things out. Morgan feels a little out of the loop because he is always taking his cousin Sky with him and really doesn't give you an update on what is going on. He is just being secretive. But she loves him and won't push for answers too much. I'm not sure how long they were dating but I have a feeling it hasn't been long. It's very rare to fall in love with someone in a short amount of time but this is a book. So things can be unrealistic. Anyways, nothing much has happened in the book and I'm sure it will pick up towards the end. They usually do. Might as well go back to reading and update when I can.

So until next time.......

Started reading The Calling by Cate Tiernan

Hello Bookies,

I finished my mangas and went to a series I started way back in high school. I stopped reading it for a very long time for a couple of reasons. The books were really hard to find in the library system and I also went to college. No time to read when you are there. Anyways, this is the seventh book in the series and I'm just now reviewing it. From what I can remember in the series is that our main character is related to some witches that were killed for some unknown reason. I'm sure it stated the reason, I just don't remember. Anyways, she meets this guy who is also a witch and they date for some time. The guy ends up being bad and tries to kill her for some reason I can't remember. Sadly there isn't much more I can remember. Sorry about that. It's been a while and I'm hoping reading this book will help jog my memory. I have a feeling this is going to be a quick read, but we will never know. The book is small enough but knowing my track record on reading normal books that aren't mangas, it might take me a few days. But I guess we will never know until I actually start reading. I'll let you guys know what goes on when I've read enough. I'm off to crack this book open and see what adventures I can uncover while I try to remember the one that I was already living while reading this series.

So until next time.....

Manga Post #14

Hello Bookies,

I don't know why it takes me so long to read an Ebook. I just got done with the first chapter yesterday. Maybe its because I'm on an electronic and I get distracted by all of the nice apps that call for my attention. So I'm putting the Ebook down because I made a nice trip to the library to pick up a new set of books. It is so nice to be back to reading my favorite mangas again. Especially now that I'm almost done with the first book of my Japanese lessons. It just makes me feel that much closer to one of my favorite countries out there. Anyways, let's get talking about the mangas I'm reading.

I'm actually farther in the catch-up game for the anime than I'm in the manga. I blame the fact that it takes me so long to read a normal book. But anyways I get to relieve the first battle with Captain Buggy. Also, read how Nami ended up joining the crew. Yes, the manga is a little different than the anime, but it is still good in my opinion. Mangas explain things so much more than what you see in the show. But I also know that this is still an ongoing series. Looks like I am going to have a lot of reading if I want to catch up with everyone else. Anyways, the volume starts off with Nami asking Luffy to join her. Also, she explains why the town is all empty, then tricks Luffy into capture so she can join Buggy's crew. Just like in the anime, things take a bad turn and Luffy almost gets killed. Zoro/Zolo saves the day right at the last second, almost dies himself. They escape for a bit. Luffy beats up someone because they destroyed a pet store. Must read the manga or watch the anime to find out why he did that. Then the real battle begins. It's actually kind of nice to relieve the tension all over again. I think that is why I like One Piece so much. No matter how many times I watch it or read it, I still get pretty entertained by it. Yes, the first few episodes are a little slow, but it's all necessary when you want to learn how the crew all got together. It also leaves out all of the confusion later on.


I'm a lot farther in this series than I thought. I'm only on volume 19 with many more still to come. I think there is like seventy-two volumes altogether. Anyways, it's been a while since I read the last volume. So just bare with me here. From what I remember and have seen in the anime, which I'm still trying to catch up on, is that lady Tsunade was given a choice. Help Orochimaru and get her loved ones back, or I can't remember what the other option was. Also, I do remember that she challenged Naruto to learn his new technique in a week. Something that should be impossible, but this is Naruto we are talking about. Anyways, that is all I can really remember.  But I do remember almost falling for Tsunade going for the deal, again. You would think that I would remember that after watching it like three or four times and reading it just as many times. Anyways, a battle breaks out and it is pretty intense. But Orochimaru admits defeat for now and runs off. That is basically the whole volume. It's just the battle against Orochimaru and Lady Tsunade finally accepting to become Hokage. But I still enjoyed it. Now I'm ready for the next volume.

Another manga that I haven't read in a while and can't remember what happened. I really need to stop doing that. Anyways, I'm slowly falling in love with Tokyo Ghoul. But, I do know that I'm in love with the live action film that came out for it. Yes, I'm going to keep bringing it up because, Bookies, you need to see it. Anyways, I looked up to see how many volumes were left for this series and I was kind of sad to see that I'm almost done. I only have four more after this one. I don't want to see it go. Is it too much to hope that the writer will make more? More, please? Anyways, things are just now getting interesting. Our ghoul investigators are currently looking into a case and I'm trying to figure out who this errand boy is. Is it Hide? But he knows about a lot that is going on and it just makes me want to know more about who he is. But with farther reading, I found out. Or, at least I think I did. Anyways, our leading character Kaneki is on the hunt for the doctor that made him into a ghoul and it's not going too well. Or, at least that is what is appearing while the investigators decide to investigate his life in order to find the ghoul they have been hunting for a while. Things are getting pretty intense here. I wonder how this is all going to turn out in the end. Battles break out and things get crazy. I'm loving every bit of it and then the volume ends with a cliffhanger. Which is kind of depressing. I want more but I guess I have to finish my other books before I get the next volume.

So until next time.....
