Book Review: Manga Art

Hi Readers!

Today I’m reviewing “Manga Art” by Mark Crilley

9780385346313

Description: A compilation of Mark’s manga and freestyle art.

What I liked: The artwork! And that Mr. Crilley put down what he used to create the piece, I found it informative and considerate.

What I didn’t like: There was nothing in here that I didn’t like.

Favorite Part: I loved the drawing of the girl on the Vespa scooter, it was simple and very pleasing to the eye.

Least Favorite Part: Literally none!

Opinion: This book is a fantastic and relaxing read full of beautiful and artistic work. Mark Crilley shows us some of his work as well as some information about the tools he used for each picture. I loved that he used lots of multimedia and even some simple illustrations. The fact that Mark can literally use nothing but a pencil and some paper and create such amazing characters is magic!

Rating: 5 Stars

Recommend for: I highly recommend this book for everyone of all ages who love manga and drawing.

Book Review: Manga Classics The Jungle Book

Hi Book Nerds!

Today I’m reviewing Manga Classics: The Jungle Book by Crystal S. Chan

IMG_20170719_092242

FTC DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW

Description: A manga adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book”

What I liked: The Art!

What I didn’t like: The last short story, it was a tad confusing and super short.

Favorite Character(s): Kotick, Rikki, & Mowgli

Least Favorite Character(s): Nag & Nagaina

Opinion: I love the concept of turning a classic into a manga classic as it helps the younger generation (and manga lovers) to read and be interested in a classic. On top of that, It wasn’t abridged or deviated from the original book.

I have a younger sister who hates reading anything that doesn’t have pictures, I think she’ll like this book and so will everybody that gives this baby a try!

Rating: 5 Stars!

Recommended for: Literally anybody!

Have a great day!

Hi Readers!

Today I’m reviewing Our Only Chance by Ray Else

IMG_20170707_125908

FTC DISCLAIMER: I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Description: A different kind of Frankenstein. After Einna, an A.I. Android is created by Manaka Yagami, she sets out to become human. While dealing with the struggles of an Android and a teenage girl, Einna tries to make sense of her life.

What I liked: The philosophical side of Einna that’s shown in this book. She’s really curious about life and creation.

What I didn’t like: unnecessary romance, it’s always good when the heroine has a love but I felt that the focus on it was a tad bit excessive. This is my only complaint

Favorite Character: Aside from Einna, Fernanda is my favorite character in this book.

Least Favorite Character: Read the book, you’ll know who

Opinion:I literally read from dusk to dawn (pretty much the only reading time I get right now) All ye Readers will love this novel!

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Recommend for: I HIGHLY recommend this book for fans of science fiction and suspense. Ages 16 & Up.

Well I hope you enjoyed!

Hello, Universe

I started a blog!

I started a blog! Now, my friends and family know I’m not exactly gifted when it comes to the internet but somehow I did it. (That’ll show ’em!) So please bear with me as I learn the ropes of this blog thing, I’ll be sharing reccomendations, reviews, & more. Watch out though, I knit and crochet so some posts might feature those too. I’m a beginner rhythmic gymnast too so I’ll probably have progress updates on that sometimes.

I hope you enjoy my blog and have a nice day!
