Started reading Changeling by Cate Tierman

Hello Bookies,

I'm on the last book that I got from the library recently. I didn't waste any time reading these books. I made sure to get them done in a timely matter because I don't want to be sitting around, holding the book, and thinking "what happened in the last book?"

Not a whole lot happened in the last book that I read in this series. Or, a whole lot happened and it just wasn't interesting enough for me to remember it. Either scenario is possible.  I know these books are meant for young teens or like really young adults, but I'm the type of person who doesn't discriminate books just because they are targeted for a certain age. Also, I did start this series when I was one of those young teens that were just getting into reading. So back then, I thought these were the greatest books I could find. Something my adult mind can't really comprehend anymore. So don't let my reviews hold you back from reading this series. It's actually a good series, especially if you are just starting out. I'm not sure what this book is about because I never read the descriptions. But I know it has to play off the fact that she just found out who her birth father really is. Things are getting pretty interesting.

So until next time...

Manga post #15

Hello Bookies,

After a long wait and me taking forever to read Asa - Also a family vacation taking most of my valuable reading time - I finally have my hands on my library books that made end up in an endless cycle of requesting and having the holds expire and then requesting the books once again. How I missed my mangas and writing about them. So, why don't we just dive into the reading them? That is if I can remember what is going on.

I could have sworn that I was a lot farther than volume three in this series. Maybe it's because I am so far in the anime series. Anyways, I'm at the first big battle between Luffy and Captian Buggy. I can't remember if they battle later on, or Captian Buggy tries to battle Luffy but fails miserably. Anyways, the better concludes and Buggy was sent flying on his way. Allowing our small crew of three to head off to the seas to continue on their journey. I'm pretty the anime got a little out of order at this point once again because I'm sure they had Usopp before they went to the island with the weird animals in the anime. But the manga has them go to the island before meeting Usopp. It just makes me feel that someone didn't do their homework before making the anime. But at least I get to relive the whole fight against the pirate that pretended to be a butler for three years. I can't remember his name or what the crew was called. I think they were like the cat pirates or something like that. Shows how much I pay attention to details. But it's still a pretty good story on how Luffy gets the next crewmate. I just love their backstories and how they came to be. But I know I have a long ways to go in order to catch up with everyone else that has been following the series since the beginning.

I really need to figure out how far I am in the anime series for this manga. So far it is all still review. Of course, I spent most of the time reading to remind myself of what happened in the last volume. Didn't take that long though. Naruto was able to get the fifth Hokage. Sasuke has been healed but he feels worthless and is taking it out on pretty much everyone. Lee gets some bad news and he has to decide what he is going to do. Can't help but feel bad for him. Anyways, after getting a lecture, Sasuke gets attacked by some of Orochimaru's pawns. All in the plan to make him feel even weaker and have him go running for more power. Poor guy. But it's a pretty slow volume for the meantime. The only action you get is Naruto and Sasuke get into a fight because Sasuke needs to know that he is still better than Naruto. So far there has only been catching up for me, so everything is just boring because I've seen it in the anime and read the manga to a point. I just have to figure out where that point was. But for those who haven't seen the anime or read the manga, feel free to give the series the love it deserves. I know I'm considered to be pretty far, but I know I'm not even close to the end. This is a journey I'm willing to take.

Another manga that I really need to remember what happened in the last volume. It's been so long since I read it and I can't let that happen again. But I have my hands on volume 11 for Tokyo Ghoul and I have a feeling I'll be reading it, trying to remember all that happened. I think they found where the doctor was hiding in the last volume and now it's one big epic battle of them fighting all of his creations. Or, something like that. Also during this battle I don't even know where our main character is in all of the mess. But eventually the mess ends and Kaneki is found. Everyone flees the scene, leaving more questions than answers. The doctor goes back to hiding while his property get investigated. And, our leading character goes back to live a somewhat normal life. But even though things are quiet now, it appears that it won't be boring. Of course, that is where the volume cuts off. Saying,  "to be continued in Vol. 12". You can just imagine my reaction when I saw that because of how this volume ended.

I guess it's time for me to make a request to get the next volume of all of these mangas.

So until next time.....

Started reading The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson

Hello there Bookies,

The Bookshop of Yesterdays actually comes out in a few days on June 12th, 2018, and I feel a little bad that I'm just now reading the book. I won an advanced reader's copy in a contest on and I have to admit that the book caught my interest because there are books on the cover and the title has the word bookshop. I know nothing about the book and I have no idea what it is about. So you can say that I judged a book by it's cover. Anyways, I've only read two pages. So far the book has only told me about a dog a little girl got for her birthday from her uncle before he died. Well didn't outright say he died but pretty much implied it. Also mentioned the dog suddenly being gone one day, implying that the mother got rid of it because she didn't want a dog. Terrible thing to do, but I know it happens in the real world. Kind of makes me want to say, "don't want the dog? Give me the dog." Anyways, I don't have much to say right now. Just thought I would let you guys know that the book comes out soon and to check it out when it does.

So until next time.....

Almost done reading Asa

Hello Bookies,

After hours of Japanese lessons and reviewing dramas, I have finally come close to the end of this book. It took me a while because I was trying to squeeze it in between everything. It's not easy when I made myself so busy. I even put off making my videos so I can get this book done. You are very welcomed.

I'm about 80% through the book and things have been pretty easy going. Not a whole lot going on. Royal still trying to get over her trama at work. Asa still thinks he isn't good enough for anything good in his life. Then there is the whole sex scenes that I'm sure some of you love. Also everything seems to be going just swell. But we all know that all of the good stuff happens in the last 20% of the book. Which I'm not there yet. So you will have to read the book in order to see what it holds for the drama. What will put these two to the test of their relationship? Will it tear them apart forever? Or, will they overcome it and be happy forever? I guess I will have to read to find out along with you guys. Those that have read it, don't spoil it for the rest of us. Okay? But I'm going to go finish this book because I have a whole new stack to go through from the library. Also, I have a few books that were just sent to me that I need to check out for some authors.

So until next time......

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 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.....
