    Rereading VS. New Reads?

    I just damn love reading! (And yes, reading purely graphic novels is still reading, I challenge you! #fightme —another post for another day!) It’s the best hobby for me! Immersing myself in the world of my favorite characters is just darn addicting!  This is probably why I gravitated so much to reading! I know that it has been a while since I opened a book—but as my monthly reading feature has attested I well damn read in every chance I—

    The Unorthodox! Let’s talk about antiheroes!

    I don’t mind morally gray characters. I shared my thoughts already about how my favorite characters don’t represent my moral principles. I enjoy every spectrum necessary to elevate a narrative; if making the protagonist unethical then so be it. I’m way past that naïve thinking of a simple plot-line of good vs. evil. DEATH NOTE デスノート Now, antiheroes. Not really the most original idea an author will come up with nowadays. Many already did that, some were brilliant, and some—

    Onward Twenty Seventeen!

    I need to confess: while I do look forward to my winter list, I’m not that super excited (so maybe I am for Gintama but that’s given!) But I don’t consider those as a signs of things to come. In fact I’m still hopeful that some of the manga series I’m wishing hard to get green-lit will still get it (I got one of the 5 wishlists, and that saying something!) And I’m also open to trying new or originals—

    Not so happily ever after…

    Not so happily ever after…

    I know that ‘unrequited love’ plotline is not exactly new. But most people do read to escape, and by escape they are inclined to choose a happy sort of feeling in stories rather than a hard slap in the face realistic approach (as such this romantic plot angle implies). At least to me, I gravitate more on series that I knew is fun or happy rather than one that will make me sad. I do occasionally seek reads like these—
