Pre-Read:Wooo Volume 5

Overall Thoughts:

The beginning all i can say is awe. Iku’s dad makes me so proud he knows her secret and didn’t just call her on it. He is waiting for her to be ready to tell him and to stop her mother from being ridiculous just wow. 0.0 is all I can do who would have thought Komaki would have a love interest. 0.0. He is like beyond sweet! The way he’s there for her ad how he shows he cares then the MBC taking something totally innocent and acting like it’s there job to save the world. It’s not but its amazing how they save Komaki. It was a great volume. I cant wait to read volume 6.

Description of the Book:In the near future, the federal government creates a committee to rid society of books it deems unsuitable. The libraries vow to protect their collections, and with the help of local governments, form a military group to defend themselves–the Library Forces!

Iku and Commander Inamine are abducted by Bakushu-kai terrorists, who demand sensitive material from the library’s protected collection in return for the hostages! Dojo is worried about Iku, his problem student with limited field experience. But what Iku lacks in training she more than makes up for in gumption, and she is not going to let library material go without a fight!

Pre-Read:YAY

Overall Thoughts:

Ok so I get why Iku was mad but at the same time i get why Dojo did what he did because Iku is just well reckless. She put herself in danger when she didn’t have to. The thing is she was so brave to just put herself in a situation where she could potentially be hurt or worse. then to see Dojo worried but not able to show it. It makes me want to jump into the book and be like he loves you! to Iku. Then Dojo he calls Iku an idiot but I’m like She loves you. It’s just Dojo is always calling her an idiot but i mean who is really the stupid one. Also the whole situation with her parents OMG. It’s so sad that she feels she has to hide herself from them. Then when dojo does all that stuff covering for her. I’m just like awe if that doesn’t show he cares I don’t know what does. then for Komaki to find away to help her after he hears her trying to be honest with her parents. This one wasn’t my favorite but it was über sweet. The art once again amazed me. Kiiro Yumi is my favorite manga writer at the moment. You should totally check her out. 🙂

Iku is witness to a disturbance during a Board of Education speech on protecting children from the danger of books. The perpetrators are two young boys protesting the banning of their favorite books. But while Iku wants to reach out to the next generation of book lovers, Dojo insists that they can’t play favorites. Will Dojo’s prickly insistence on sticking to the rules ruin their budding friendship?

Pre-Read:YAY volume 3!!!!

Overall Thoughts:

I love this series so much it’s so funny. I love how Iku sees the little boys as a great cause and she looks to help them express their opinion to adults. This was my favorite one so far out of the series. I love that Iku is so impulsive and passionate. Then the fact that she is totally oblivious to the men around her. You can see how she makes people better and that she is always trying to her best. Also I can under stand why Iku is ad now at dojo but at the same time I understand why he did what he did. The thing is that it was pointless in the end. the general is brave also that he just offered himself up like it was the thing to do. It’s easy to see why Iku is passionate about her job because of the leaders she has. This is a sweet manga that has lots of comedy. The are is cute. Kiiro Yumi is hilarious and makes me crave to read more as soon as I’m finished. I’m so excited to read Volume 4

Midnight Alley: Morganville Vampires, Book 3 (100)

Author: Rachel Caine

Edition:Paperback

Length:256

Published:October  2, 2007

Publisher:Penguien Group

Source:Library

Genre:YA, Urban Fantasy

Age Group:14 & up

Description of the Book:

Morganville is such a nice place to live… And die. If you don’t mind that sort of thing.

When Claire Danvers learnt that her college town was run by vampires, she did what any intelligent, self-preserving student would do: she applied for a transfer and stocked up on garlic. The transfer is no longer an option, but that garlic may come in handy.

Now Claire has pledged herself to Amelie, the most powerful vampire in town. The protection her contract secures does little to reassure her friends. All of a sudden, people are turning up dead, a stalker resurfaces from Claire’s past, and an ancient bloodsucker extends a chilling invitation for private lessons in his secluded home.

Pre-Read:

I cant wait to see what happens next!

While Reading:

  • Yay they are official
  • Poor Micheal 😦
  • Myrnin Reminds me of a person with dementia  but with fangs
  • I cant help but wonder what Jason would be like if Brandon had never been in his life
  • Oliver freaks me out
  • I didn’t think Micheal did it
  • Nurse Fenton is up to something
  • I always want to grab Jason and kill him
  • Myrnin makes me want to hug him some times
  • something seems off.

Overall Thoughts:

OMG Wow that ending was just wow like I didn’t expect it at all. I mean come on Claire you just keep digging yourself into a bigger hole. The whole time you have the best intentions but it seems to always make things worse. While reading this book i wanted to slap Claire a few times. Also OMG Sam i almost cried. The best part of this book is, well parts, is Myrnin because he is I think it is a chance for people to understand vampires in Morganville a little bit differently. The Jason well you know he’s twisted but this book takes things to a whole new level. This book is great i think it takes things to a little bit of a darker place. I cant help but wonder what crazy things will happen next  This series is amazing you should check it out if you have yet to do so. I know i am happy that a friend recommended it to me. 🙂

Overall Thoughts:

Wow this book was just wow. I loved the Percy Jackson series it always mad me wish I was a kid again and a demigod at that. This book is just so damn good.The merging of the Greek and roman cultures is an amazing idea. Then the disappearances and reappearances  everything is just wow. I am in awe of Rick Riordan he has made me an even bigger fan and i did not think that possible. I loved everything. This book kept me thinking and asking questions. I love how Jason is so much more fierce where Percy was more compassionate. I think that this book showed how different two cultures can be but that there is always a chance bring them together. I liked what Aphrodite said about that there being a chance of unity but with a risk like there is with anything that anyone does. I cant wait to read the son of Neptune(Poseidon) I see some more of Percy in the near feature! if you haven’t read this series what are you waiting for. Rick Riordan is an amazing writer who makes mythology/ history come to life in an exciting and imaginative way. I think that any one of any age will enjoy this book and should take an opportunity to read it if that can.
