March 2019

If the year continues to pick up steam for me the way that it has since January, it well may be that every single month is going to be even busier than the the last! March was definitely another month filled with some incredible highlights: the first round of OtakuAThon (which included a snow day), seeing James Bay live (twice!), plenty of delicious dessert dates (including a morning at OMG! Dessert Goals), a trip down to DC for ApollyCon 2019, and a lovely day spent with my sister Rachel to round off the month. Plus, the weather is starting to get warmer - spring and florals and sneakers and pastels and sunshine, here we come!

Of the 21 manga and 17 novels I read this month (and honestly, I doubt I will ever read this much ever again, so let me take a moment to pat myself on the back), my favorites were:
  • Fushigi Yugi: Genbu Kaiden, Vol. 1-12 by Yuu Watase, a manga series that tackles a similar story to the original where a young girl is brought into a land that exists in a book only to discover her destiny as the priestess of said land who is meant to find her seven celestial warriors and summon a god in order to save the world
  • Library Wars: Love & War, Vol. 1 by Kiiro Yumi, the first of a manga series where the main character wants to be a part of the task force dedicated to protecting books from censorship by the federal government and has to undergo training to make it happen
  • Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare, the first two novels in a historical Shadowhunters series that features a girl still discovering who she is, the found family she finds herself surrounded with at the London Institute and a mysterious villain who employs clockwork and Downworlders to get the dirty deeds done
  • Legendary by Stephanie Garber, a reread for me, and the second in a series involving younger sister Donatella Dragna as she enters this new round of Caraval intent on winning in order to learn Legend's real identity in order to keep up her end of a bargain that will help her find her missing mother
