Review from a book club kid: A Court of Mist and Fury (Book 2)


PEOPLE READ IT! The first book may be good but this is just like gone another level.

The author is really smart in how she made this book like I didn't know that this was a playoff from Beauty and The Beast. Exceptional plot twists and her characters are amazing.

You may have disliked Rhysand, because of the first book, but guys you guys are going to love this dude and his friends.

Review from a book club kid: Again!! Vol 1


Okay, guys, I didn't think that this was good until I sat down and gave it a good read. I was wrong * Hands Up* it's really good, it gave me a huge Haikyuu!! vibe. I thought this was Shojo since it was a slice of life manga but..... surprise surprise it's a Shonen!

At first when I picked it up and I was like huh. The character here on the first volume sorta looks like a gender-bent Sasuke.

I have to say, this series has a really good storyline and it's been set up perfectly and there really isn't anything that I would fault about it. All the characters have different perks and personalities. This series is really relatable to highschoolers nowadays and teaches us a good lesson.

Review from a book club kid: InuYasha Umnibus 13


For once, this manga has started without picking up where another has had a 'to be continued...' 
(right in the middle of a fight).

The series is about a group of people (3 humans, 1 half-demon and 1 full demon who is a kid) trying to defeat an extremely-powerful-and-hard-to-kill-half-demon.

I personally really enjoy this series because of the creativity and thought put into each character. The artist is extremely good at drawing expressions. on top of that the story line is amazing if you enjoy long action and adventure series.

Review from a book club kid: Children if the whale Vol 7



Children of the Whales is a book about people who are descended from criminals stranded on an island. They know nothing about their ancestors' sentence and the outside world.

In this volume, while sailing towards a country that they're hoping will ally with them the group of main characters are uncovering their past. The reason this would have to be my favorite volume is that is full of mystery, discovery and adventure.
