Manga From The Library #FridayReads

Today I went to the library to pick up my hold: the first Oh My Goddess! manga. This is one of my favorite anime of all time (if not my favorite), and I couldn’t even try to come up with an excuse not to have read it all these years.

The only downsides are:

  1. It’s in western format, with pages from left-to-right, instead of right-to-left. Didn’t check inside yet to see if the pages are inverted, to also be read left-to-right;
  2. I couldn’t find the second volume at the library system. Maybe they don’t have it anymore. But at least I know they have other volumes.
Oh My Goddess! Vol1 – Wrong Number

I also saw this book, Tokyo Fashion City: A Guide to Tokyo’s Trendiest Fashion Districts, and decided to borrow it too. Even if I’m not going to read the whole thing, at least it’ll be cool to see the pictures and read some parts.

Friday Reads: July 20th

This week I finished reading Neverseen, the 4th book on the Keeper of the Lost Cities series by Shannon Messenger. It’s one of my favorite series at the moment, and it’s a shame that I took so long to read this book. But now I already put a hold for the next book at the library.

Death Bringer Skullduggery Pleasant #6

And also, after a few years, I’m finally continuing to read the Skullduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy, with the book Death Bringer, the 6th in the series. Back in Brazil I’ve got to read the previous books, but they stopped publishing the series without any notice. So, I kept waiting for the next release, which never came. But now I’ve got it in English in my Kindle. 😁

If you’re wondering, one of the reasons I didn’t get an English version before is because all characters names were translated or adapted in Portuguese, and I didn’t want to relearn all of them.

I’m now at 11%, and  I’m really glad I’ve returned to this series. The humor is great, and the story and the characters too. I hope I can finish it soon and start the next one in the series: Kingdom of the Wicked.
