Happy Friday to all of the book dragons and otaku ninjas out there today! I would like to start this post by wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead, whether you’re working, relaxing, or studying, I’m sending you all a bunch of hugs and warm, happy vibes! ♥
My days of reading multiple books are finally behind me! Reading more than two books at a time, adds so much mental pressure on to me that it kicks my arse into a slump (not that I have anyone to blame for this but my own silly self). So, I will no longer be reading more than one or two books at a time. My missions for the past few weeks have been to discover all of my bad reading habits and to slowly assassinate the hell out of them. It’s been working splendidly! I was able to finish multiple books this week, so I will definitely stick to my plan.
Since I’m out of current reads, I have a very small list of things I plan on starting this weekend and back-ups in case if I manage to finish the novels I’ve been eyeing. It’s a rather interesting combination of stories and genres, but most of these consist of manga. My manga madness has been so delightfully fun that I don’t plan on stopping or slowing down if I can help it! Anyway, enough with the chit-chat, let’s get to my list! 🙂
Black Order (Sigma Force #3) by James Rollins
Continuing onwards with my series slaying, I’ll be starting the third instalment for the Sigma Force action-adventure, science-thriller series. The first two were really fun and awesome books, and I eagerly anticipate the next crazy adventure that Sigma Force finds themselves in. I’ve written reviews for both Sandstorm and The Map of Bones for anyone interested in checking those out.
Initial D by Shuichi Shigeno
Sir Boyfriend and I have been binging the series this past week. It’s his first time watching it (my 11th). This is my favourite all-time manga & anime series of all-time (yes, that’s repetitive, but the excitement is SO EXTREME it warrants it). Being a former racer, there’s a nostalgic beauty to this series that will never leave my soul. It’s also just one of the best damn racing renditions, in regards to fiction, that I have ever encountered in my life. Having read the manga multiple times, I’ve decided to revisit it once again! The series revolves around a young teen boy named Takumi Fujiwara who ends up being the racing prodigy of Mt. Akina! The series follows him and his evolution as a racer as he discovers and nurtures this new found passion.
Psycho-Pass: Inspector Shinya Kōgami by Natsuo Sai & Midori Gotō
With assistance from the Psycho-Pass Production Committee, this prequel manga shows us what life was like for Inspector Kōgami before the events of Psycho-Pass Season One, which happens to be one of my favourite cyberpunk anime serials; a close second after Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I’ve cheated a bit and read the first volume. It’s quite promising so far and I’m eager to continue.
