In my desperate attempt to feel something, I decided to read a sappy romance that I had read before. I choose The Lucky One by Nickolas Sparks (because his writing is the definition of sappy romance). For those of you who have not read the book or seen the movie, The Lucky One is a story about a marine who finds a picture of a woman while out in Afganistan and ends up believing that it kept him alive. After coming back from tour, he goes on a hike across the country looking for this woman. Let me start by saying that this would only be possible in a romance novel. In real life, this would get you arrested, but when you suspend your disbelief and is a really interesting way to develop the relationship. You see the majority of the relationship building from the marine’s point of view which, giving him some props, his thoughts on everything was not creepy. He just felt the need to help her out after she “saved” his life. He was not expecting anything to come out of it. For this one reason, it’s kind of cute, especially in comparison with another male character in the book. After reading the story from the other guy’s point of view, I felt the need to take a shower. This was definitely a book that you cannot over think too much. You just have to take in at face value. If you think about it realistically, the entire story is a plot hole, but a fun read either way.
In a world where werewolves and humans can live in harmony, everything isn’t as great as it could be. In Days of Hana, you are introduced to the human Hana and the werewolf Haru. They have been best friends since they were children. In this society, werewolves are seen as pets to most human families. After a werewolf attacks another human after their human was attacked, werewolves are not required to go to school alongside their humans. This is when the trouble truly starts, especially when Haru realizes that the feelings that he has for Haru aren’t exactly kosher. This webcomic is one of the cutest that I’ve read. Every chapter sends me on a rollercoaster of emotions that I didn’t know this would make me feel. The second season of this webcomic just started so it would be a great time to get on the feel-train with me.
Just out of college, that last thing you expect is that your new roommate kills people for a living, but that is what you get out of Assassin Roommate by Monica Gallagher. The characters balance each other well. There is not an overabundance of unnecessary characters. Everyone serves a purpose. The relationships are also written very well. There are hints of a love triangle, but it isn’t annoying as some love triangles can be. Everyone involved are adults. Yes, they do have outbursts of emotion, but it is all understandable. Also, the conflict between the different assassin networks is also interesting as you are trying to figure out what everyone wants and what their true motives are. The second season of this webcomic just wrapped up, so it is the perfect time to catch up on this amazing series. I can’t wait to find out what the author has in store next.
I’m going to tell you guys about this really interesting webcomic I finished reading. The title of this review tells you nearly all you need to know about #Blessed. In this, our protagonist is hating how lonely she is, decides to get on a dating app and accidentally wipes right on a pantheon of gods, seven to be exact. Now, she is a part of a prophecy and needs to go on dates will all of them and choose a single god. It is a really fun read, and will hopefully come out with a season 2 really soon. The ending was such a cliffhanger, and I need to know exactly what happens next. I would definitely suggest this webcomic to everyone.
As I am writing this, I finished reading Vampire Knight not even ten minutes ago. I’m still trying to figure out the world’s structures because it was strange. I enjoyed the story, don’t get me wrong, even though somethings were spoiled for me ahead of time (I promise not to spoil anything here, guys.) It’s just a weird story, and I completely understand why I was told to read and not to read it at the same time. I had mixed reviews while reading it. Half-way through, I put it down, because it made my head hurt. It took me a couple of months to pick back up. At the very end, when the action started to really kick in, I couldn’t put it down. In my personal opinion, there was way too much filler in the middle trying to transition from one arc to another. It was just really awkwardly executed. Maybe the anime executed this differently and better. I’d heard better views from the anime, even though the story is weird.
This the super duper adorable anime Tsuredure Children, you meet – I want to say – eight different couples with completely different stories. At first, I thought it would be annoying switching between at least four relationships every single episode, but all it did was make me want to watch more. When you leave a couple, you are left on a cliff-hanger or with a major case of the feels. Every single relationship is different, which also makes it really interesting. If it was the same relationship, every single time, it would not be as cute as it is. I feel that this show did everything right. This show is the right amount of cute and angst from all the feels. This show is for every lover of romance ever.
In any great romance, there are some funny moments (I assume at least. I’ve never been in a relationship.). That’s where the webcomic My Giant Nerd Boyfriend by fishball comes in. It follows a real-life couple as they go through their everyday lives as artists and nerds. It’s not complete, but it is updated very often. I have finally gotten up-to-date with it (after binge-reading it for a day). I personally think that they are so cute together. Apparently, they have been together for four years, and are still so cute together. I personally think that they should get married, but I don’t want to force that on the two of them. When the time is right, they’ll do it. My shipping heart wants it to be soon though. Tell me if you agree!
