The Box

I keep referencing this Box and what it is, obviously is a box of books I need to read. Still working on finishing the books mentioned in the post linked above and hopefully by next year I can finally get my read on.

Two series are in the box:

The Ghostwalker series by Christine Feehan

They were just soldiers wanting to defend their country. Paranormal romance queen, Christine Feehan’s Ghostwalker series is about a group of military soldiers who have been psychically enhanced by the government. I read the first book, Shadow Game, already about Captain Rylan Miller, who’s unit is being kept locked in a facility by the government. And someone’s been killing the members of his unit. With the help of Lily Whitney, daughter of Dr. Whitney who enhanced them they escape the facility and find out who’s killing Rylan’s men.

The next book is Mind Game about Nico, another guy in Rylan’s unit.

Emma Holly’s upyr series.

I read “The Night Owl” in the anthology Hot Blooded and realized it was a series so I wanted to start from the beginning. The first is Catching Midnight and I’m really looking forward to it since it takes place in the Middle Ages (which I don’t see a lot) and I like some historical. Pubparlor did a review of the book here and I’d like to add my two cents in once I read and finish the book. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!

Currently still going through the books in my Manga Madness and the Box post. I’m on volume 3 of Requiem of the Rose King and the prologue part is done. Now the real story begins.

Stay tuned for more of my randomness in the book forest!

Writing Prompt Wednesday!

Halloween’s over (booo!) but if you’re Latino, Día de Muertos has begun! For any who don’t know, Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a two-day holiday (Nov. 1 & 2) originating in Mexico where people honor their dearly departed loved ones. For more info, check it out here.

Anyways, here’s a twofer for you! You can pick either of the two prompts or do both, it’s up to you. You can’t even combine the two (le gasp! Bold)!

-Use the this image in your Day of the Dead story: a road of marigold petals.

-Write a story using the five senses to describe  the season of Autumn.

Good luck and happy writing!!

eBook Finish! The Demon Prince of Momochi House, vol. 2

I actually finished this some time ago along with volume 3 (reviews coming). So let’s dive into it!


*Mild spoilers ahead!!!*

So as we learned at the end of the first volume, Aoi accidentally became the Omamori-sama instead of Himari. Not only that but Aoi can’t leave Momochi house at all and it seems his existence in the outside world is completely erased! Say what??!

So of course, Himari makes it her mission to release Aoi from Momochi house. This is the declaration but from there no real progress.

From here it’s mostly Himari adjusting to Momochi house with her witnessing some of the Nue’s duties and she even witnesses him getting a new shikigami. It’s the little pudgy penguin looking Ayakashi who’s new name I forget. He gets a human form briefly at the beginning of the chapter and I find it funny he calls his human form ugly!

Not only does Himari have to adjust to a house of ayakashi, she starts school nearby. And everyone has heard of the haunted Momochi house. We get an introduction to a few new minor characters as they decide they’d like to visit and see for themselves if the rumors are true.

The hilarity of Himari trying to hide the fact that she lives with three guys is only punctuated by how the guys come up with the method to do that!

Of course, this wouldn’t be a typical funny “I gotta hide the fact that they’re dudes” kind of episode. Turns out one of Himari’s classmates aren’t who they seem.

So the story as a whole is still kind of introductory with some new characters, good and bad as we see at the very end of this volume. I like the new classmates but I feel like it’s a little pointless if they’re not going to do much or be in the story often. Maybe they’re there to keep Himari tied to the human world? 😕 I still like how the story is going so far. Not too rushed and so far, not too slow.
