~ HAUL TIME ~
Oh my gosh. I never thought I'd be this excited to talk about eBooks, but I am right now. In fact, I'm usually not a huge fan of eBooks, but I was so excited when I found out these books were FREE. Guys, this is a huge deal. I usually download tons of free books because, well, they're free. But I rarely ever find books I'd been wanting to read for free. (In fact, I rarely ever read the books I download for free. There are too many books out there that still need to be read.) Anyway, I know I'm definitely going to read these though. These books are Queen of Someday by Sherry D. Ficklin, which I've heard such great things about (and have been dying to read!) and Insanity by Cameron Jace, which is an Alice in Wonderland retelling (and I am a sucker for Alice in Wonderland retellings).
I only bought one physical book, but if you know me, I love a good steampunk novel. I have yet to read an Andrea Cremer book, but I saw the gorgeous cover in the store (and read the synopsis on Goodreads), and I just knew I had to have The Inventor's Secret. So far, my feelings in general toward steampunk are 50/50, but I've only read two steampunk series, so I'm hoping this one is another good one. (Oh and not that it matters, but the cogs on the girl's collar on the cover are metallic and shiny in real life and I'm also kind of attracted to shiny things. Just saying.)
Comics and Manga
I know I didn't have to wait that long, but I am so excited that this finally came out! I'm pretty sure I shared how I was wary about this new series, but was pleasantly surprised by the revamp, so I am really hoping that the second issue is just as good as the first!
In terms of manga, I picked up one volume of a manga I just happened to stumble upon. The premise seemed promising so I thought I'd give it a go, and hopefully it will deliver. (The main characters are twins and the boy twin wants his sister to go to his all-boys school and trade places with him because he's failing a class. Or something like that.) I think if it's executed right, the story will be absolutely hilarious and fun!
