Me on This Week's Book Week (188)

This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)

So the year is off to a start of sorts. In terms of the weather here, it snowed earlier in the week and has been off and on foggy. Which is bizarre when the fog rolls in in the middle of the afternoon.

I see a bunch of bloggers, librarians, and authors are off to ALA midwinter this weekend. I hope everyone has fun talking up diverse books and what they're looking forward to and the awards on Monday.

Quick book rec! If you like manga and you're looking to get into something a little bit different but still contemporary (no magic), then check out Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun. It's about a high school guy who writes and draws shojo manga, manga for girls all about happy, fluffy romances. It's a fun story that plays with expectations and gender roles and character. Only the first volume has been translated so far, but the anime (I watched it on Crunchyroll) seems pretty faithful to the plot of the manga if you want to give it a watch first.

Reviews going up this coming week will feature The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth (Tuesday) and The Radiant Road by Katherine Catmull (Friday). :)
Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun Volume 1 by Izumi Tsubaki (Bought)
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater (Bought)
Behold the Bones by Natalie C. Parker (e-galley from HarperCollins through Edelweiss)
