Mitsuyoshi meets Teresa while taking a photograph of cherry blossoms. She’s a foreigner who got separated from her travel companion and he brings her to his grandpa’s shop. They then discover that Teresa and her friend Alec are new transfer students at their school.

Like animation style and music very upbeat, everything was very lighthearted.

I like that Teresa is very pure and embraces Mitsuyoshi’s friends’ weirdness. Mitsuyoshi always places other before him and rarely voices his own emotions. So when Kaoru confronted him on that whil he was crying, I was in tears too. Kaoru is such a flirty character, but he does have some redeeming qualities such as being funny and very supportive of Mitsuyoshi.

I was so glad that there was a nice ending! I loved the way the story unfolded and the weird but funny characters. It was definitely a good lighthearted anime.

Book review: Reality Gold by Tiffany Brookes (4 stars)

Reality Gold by Tiffany Brookes

Genre: YA, Romance, Adventure

Rating: 4 stars

After a horrible cyber-bullying case, Riley is sure she has hit rock bottom. When the opportunity to take part in a game show arises, she leaps at the chance to fix her social standing and prove her worth. In a matter of days, she finds herself on Black Rock island, pitted against 19 other teenagers to win a Survivor style game.

As the story progressed, I like that Riley was an observer and determined to find the treasure while being an unintentional manipulator. I love that she definitely thinks things through before acting.

I’ve never been a big fan of Survivor (The TV series) since there was so much betrayal and drama, this book is similar to it, but I absolutely LOVED this book! There were so many twists and turns and betrayals, as a reader I was also confused as to what was happening, in a good way of course.

The story was very unexpected, but really thrilling and fun at the same time. I think this book works really well as a standalone novel, but I definitely would want to read more if there were other books.

Narumi is an office lady and is an hardcore Otaku, but she tries to keep her secret of being an Otaku under wraps. At her new job, she meets her childhood friend Hirotaka who knows about her Otaku obsession. Hirotaka suggests that he and Narumi date since the both of them are otakus.

Music very light and I really like the animation style of this anime. I found this anime pretty funny as well, with it’s well-timed comedy. I love the way they reference games and certain animes such as Touken Ranbu and The Ancient magnus bride as easter eggs inside the anime!

Hirotaka and Narumi are so cute together OMG, all the couples are so cute in this anime. Hanako and Tarou are so cute too, although they always end up bickering. THIS IS SO CUTE I’M DYING, I’m not sure why I took so long to watch this anime, because it’s really good!

Hanako is the famous cosplayer Hana who usually dresses up as male characters and Narumi draws Doujinshi. Because Hirotaka is so emotionless, it makes the romance scenes even more swoon-worthy and funny.

I felt that the anime was too short, but I really enjoyed this one as a Josei rom-com! It’s really good and I hope that there will be a season 2 ASAP!

Book review: Empress Unveiled by Jenna Morland (3 stars)

(I received a free eARC from Oftomes publishing in exchange for an honest review)

“I’m not trying to be good at dying, Tyler. I’m trying to minimise the damage I’m leaving behind.”

Swayzi has an unknown illness and is dying. But then she meets her cure, Daylan. The fate of a magical world is in her hands, and will be saved if she leaves with Daylan. But her love for Tyler is holding her back.

Personally, I wasn’t a fan of the love triangle. I actually preferred Daylan, but it was obvious that Swayzi was in love with Tyler. But I feel that Tyler only confessed when she was better and I felt that it was ill-timed.

I enjoyed the story progression, but was not a fan of the insta-love between the characters. I did feel that the world building was okay, but it was more on the vague side. I did feel that the pacing of the book was pretty messy and didn’t feel that the book was very memorable, not to mention I wasn’t a fan of the characters.

Zera is a heartless and she serves the witch Nightsinger. When Nightsinger offers Zera a deal, Prince Lucien’s heart in exchange for her own, she leaps at the opportunity. But as their two stories intertwine, they both find something more unexpected and challenging in the midst.

I heard a ton of good things about this book and was surprised that I actually really enjoyed this book as well.

Imagine To kill a kingdom merged with The Selection.

The ending of this book had me wanting to read the next one immediately! I really like the characters, the deep world building and like the dark and gritty writing style of this book! I could definitely see why a ton of others who read it loved the book. I would definitely read the 2nd book and would recommend this to all fans of fantasy novels.
