Last 

  • Yona of the Dawn Vol. 1 – 4 Stars – I picked up this manga on a whim, and since shoujo manga is my normal go to I wasn’t really expecting much from it. But it really surprised me with how enjoyable it was, and there is plenty of room for it to continue to get better too. I’m looking forward to picking up the second volume at some point.
  • Circe by Madeline Miller – 4.5 Stars – I absolutely loved this one. I’m a big fan of mythology, and an even bigger fan of mythology reimagined from a woman’s perspective. So often our oldest stories have that male-dominated skew to them, and rarely ever do we see women portrayed in thoughtful ways. This does that and more. It highlights flaws and strengths and shows the heroes in a more realistic light.

Now 

  • A Swirl of Ocean by Melissa Sarno – This was sent for review and though I’m just in the beginning portion of this, I’m enjoying it. It is magical realism though, which is one of my least favorite things, so I’m hesitant but I am loving the focus on dealing with changes in life.
  • Dragon Ball Vol. 1 – I’m finally giving this series a shot. I’ve seen episodes of several of the series, so I’m familiar with it but I don’t really know the entire story and I’m curious to see where it all began.

Sunday Post #343

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Happy Sunday! Another busy week come and gone. It’s been going fairly well on my end. Work is making the weeks fly buy since we are so busy with the summer crowd. I’m a crazy person apparently, but I am enjoying the heat we have right now. I’ll be sad when it turns to fall, but the pay off will be fewer screaming children and fewer adults who smell like all manner of foul things. I didn’t get to do much of anything during the week, as one off day was spent recouping from three days of work and the other was cut short when I got called into work again. I doubt I’ll be doing much today either as I’m exhausted from Saturday’s full day of work. Hopefully, I can get out and do something this week though.
