 Read this week:


Fullmetal Alchemist volumes 1-14 by Hiromu Arakawa: LOVING THIS SERIES SO MUCH.  I've NEVER been a manga fan, never been able to get into it at all before, but this series is so fascinating.  The characters are endearingly realized, and the plot, though convoluted, is so addicting.

  1. You have a lot of great books set up to read! I loved The Living and The Raven Boys. I got This Is What Happy Looks Like for Christmas, but I haven't started it just yet.

    Happy reading this week!

  2. Hi Hannahlily, I have to get back ot The Raven Boys soonest. Thanks for sharing your love for Full Metal Alchemist. :) It's great to read an entire series at one go, as I think you did with this one. I hope to find it in our libraries too. Have a great reading week.

  4. Hi, Hannahlily. I am enjoying your blog, so I am nominating you for the Sharing the Sunshine Blogger Challenge :-) It’s a fun way to share yourself and learn more about other book bloggers. Check out my most recent post to see how it works. I can't include the link here--I think "it" thinks I am a spammer.

  5. Excellent list! (That's a lot of books.) How are you enjoying Orleans? I've been hearing more and more good things about that one lately. You are reminding me I need to get back to the Sandman series.
