Synopsis (Taken from Kissanime):

After their parents are killed in a plane crash, Ryuuichi and his younger brother Kotarou are taken in by the chairman, who they never met before, of an elite academy. Ryuuichi becomes the school daycare’s new babysitter.

(Review)

Ryuichi and his younger brother Kotaro have reccently lost their parents. A lady agrees to be their legal guardian, but in exchange, Ryuichi has to be the school’s babysitter.

Music is lively and cute, animation feels a little like Ouran High Host Club.

I literally cried in majority of the episodes. This anime was so cute, I cannot. I literally died from cuteness overload! I thought it was a very lighthearted anime, but it was really heartwarming although it was simple. As I neared the end, I really didn’t want this anime to finish, because it was that good.

Saikawa was the low key MVP of the anime, taking care of both the Kotaro, Ryu and the headmistress. Ooo, Nezu is hot😂. I want Ryuichi to be my older brother too!!!!

I really hope this anime gets a season 2, it’s really deserves more hype! I would definitely recommend this anime as it’s short and sweet.

Book review: Heiress at Sea (Barely a fairy tale #3.5) by Maggie Dallen (3 stars)

(I received a free review copy from Instafreebie.)

“She’d spent her entire life trying to be invisible in that crowd and apparently she succeeded. Because now it was sickening clear as she turned her head to watch the ship head away from her.”

Rating: 3/5 stars

[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads) 

When Kate Ashton jumps off the singles’ cruise from hell, she doesn’t intend to drown. She just wants to escape. See the world. Maybe have an adventure or two. Now she’s stranded on a Greek isle with the hot bartender who saved her life, and he’s just the taste of danger she needs. This could be her one chance to experience the world she’s never known and a love like nothing she’s ever felt before. But this bartender has secrets, and losing her heart to him could cost her everything.

From the contemporary romantic comedy series, Barely a Fairy Tale, comes a modern day take on The Little Mermaid, where an heiress finds her place in the world, but not without risking her heart.

Kate jumps off the cruise since she wanted to escape from a party she was forced to attend. She is left stranded on a Greek island with Eric, a bartender onboard the cruise.

It was a nice contemporary take on the Little mermaid and I finished it in one sitting. I really liked the concept but it wasn’t very memorable.

What drew me into this book was the entire concept, but unfortunately, after reading 4% of the book, I wasn’t a fan of the writing style.

Book review: Keeper vs. Reaper (Graveyard Guardians #1) by Jennifer Malone Wright (3 stars)

Rating: 3/5 stars

[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads) 

When her father died, Lucy Mae Estmond inherited the family business. She has known all of her life that she would be in line to watch over the souls of the recently passed, keeping them safe from the Reapers.

Then Lucy discovers an ancient legend predicting the arrival of the Chosen One, destined to bring forth an end to the Reapers. The surprises continue when she realizes she is that person. For Lucy, being the Chosen One doesn’t change much. Fighting Reapers is just another day in the life of a Keeper.

When she meets Jack Walker, they both realize they have an insane, mutual attraction. Too bad that he’s been sent to prevent the prophecy from coming true. His only mission: to kill the Chosen One.

Lucy’s father passes away, leaving her to inherit the family business of watching over souls, to keep them safe from the Reapers. She finds out about a prophecy and that she is the Chosen One from the prophecy. She meets Jack, a Reaper and they immediately have an undeniable attraction, the only problem is, he was sent to kill her.

I really liked the raw and brute writing style of this book! I think it really helps to bring out the tone for this story! This book reminded me of a combination between Scythe by Neal Shusterman and The Royal series by Erin Watt.

I love that the story was really straightforward and clear. Overall, the book was okay, it was a quick read, but not very memorable for me.

Book review: Crossing Lines by Colby Millsaps (Did not finish)

(I received a free review copy in exchange for an honest review from the author.)

“You don’t change for a boy. You don’t do things for boys. You do things for yourself.”

Title: Crossing Lines

Authors: Colby Millsaps

Format: kindle (Review Copy)

Genre: YA, Contemporary, Romance

Rating: Did not finish

[Synopsis] (Taken from goodreads) 

What if you’re beating all the odds…but then you’re not?

Carter McMillan was no typical high school senior. She’s hasn’t been to a party…ever. She doesn’t date. She barely talks to anyone, let alone have any friends, and that’s the way she likes it. Her plan is to keep her head down, graduate, and never look back. Until Noah Sweeney came along.

Noah Sweeney is a rule-follower. He’s the good guy, despite the dark storms that swirl in the depths of his even darker eyes. He’s never struggled to know what is right and what is wrong. He’s also painfully aware of how much is riding on this one job. He can’t afford to mess up. He knows that nothing will get in the way of him excelling in his new position. Or at least he thought. Then Carter came along.

This debut novel by Colby Millsaps shows there really is no right or wrong to true love as alternating perspectives take readers through all the twists, turns, ups, and downs of an unlikely but undeniable connection.

(Review)

(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only and may contain coarse language)

Noah is offered a job that he cannot mess up, but then he meets Carter who is quiet, mysterious and never let’s her guard down.

I stopped reading at 17% of the book. It was definitely obvious that there were sparks between Noah and Carter, but I felt that the problems were drowning and suffocating the relationship too much. I did like the contemporary writing style of the novel but I wasn’t interested in continuing the story.

Nonetheless, I would definitely like to thank the author for reaching out and providing a review copy of the book.
