As you can tell this week I mainly picked up mangas from the library. All of which I had put on hold from various other libraries in the area. I also get to find out how the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series will end.
Well that’s all for me this week, so what did ya'll get this week?

  3. Vampire Knight sound interesting, I'll be excited for your take on it.

    I'm jealous about The Last Olympian, still waiting my turn for that one. My own fault, I just can't make myself buy it until it's out in paperback since I own the rest of the series in paperback.

  9. Fruits Basket is good in the beginning but it gets way too depressing and like messed up. Saiyuki is pretty cool though.
