My Thoughts

Review covers 17 chapters 

I believe it has been quite a long time since I reviewed something vampire concerning on the blog! Correctly saying in my manga corner, I believe the last vampire manga was back in October – Vampire Knight. Check it out if you are interested. But before I actually go to the story itself let me tell you something about its background. The story is only 4 volumes long. You might find it weird but in the middle of it (end of vol. 2) the author stopped writing it, and the story got it’s ending only in 2012 or 2013, maybe even after. Therefore, the drawing style in last 2 volumes is much, much better than in first two. So if you won’t like the style in the beginning, do not drop reading it, as the story is fantastic and drawings get better.

And now let me finally start talking about the story. I have read it twice, and I loved it both times, the plot, the characters are fantastic in this story. The author shows another side of being a vampire and that’s what makes it so fascinating to read. Metter Chiyuki a 17-year-old teen that has problems with her heart. She is told that she won’t liv until the next snow. One day she meets Touya – a vampire with a life span of thousand years. Chiyuki offers her blood to Touya so he can make her his life-long partner and she can see snow for the next thousand years. However, Touya refuses claiming that he hates blood. This is how the story starts and for the next 17 chapters you’ll have to explore how both Chiyuki and Touya fall in love, have to over different problems and if Touya will change Chiyuki into one of his kind.

I really loved Touya’s character. In the beginning he seems a bit apathetic, he’ stubborn, but as the story progresses I found more and more attracted to his character. He doesn’t talk like a 17-yes-old, his decision not to take life-long partner is well thought and his words: “I don’t know what will happen to me in the future, how can I give that life to someone else” made me gasp. However, his so-called confession was just fantastic. I have a poster of this on my wall. And I really need to make that top confessions list. But this is for later. I remember in the very beginning I didn’t really like Chiyuki all that much. I did sympathize with her on her dying soon, however, I though she was very self-centered when she asked Touya to turn her. However, the more the story progresses the more I liked her. I didn’t really get it when she actually fell in love with Touya, but she made a fantastic character and the last chapter shows her true feelings.

As I have already said I have read the story twice and eve though I knew how it ends, for the last 2 chapter I’ve been crying like a small child. I’m not all that motional in real life, but if it concerns a really good, well though drama story I can cry my eyes out. The last chapter can be imagined as a bomb of raw feelings. You just can’t not shed a tear when seeing Chiyuki on the floor clutching the watch… oops, I might have spoiled something. Sorry, ut I do recommend you to read this story! You’ll love it. Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!

Mini Book Review: The Goddess Hunt by Aimee Carter (The Goddess Test #1.5)

Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: The Goddess Hunt

Author: Aimee Carter

Publication Date: 1 March 2012

Publisher: Harlequin Teen


A vacation in Greece sounds like the perfect way for Kate Winters to spend her first sabbatical away from the Underworld...until she gets caught up in an immortal feud going back millennia. Castor and Pollux have been on the run from Zeus and Hades' wrath for centuries, hiding from the gods who hunt them. The last person they trust is Kate, the new Queen of the Underworld. Nevertheless, she is determined to help their cause. But when it comes to dealing with immortals, Kate still has a lot to learn....

My Thoughts:

Do you remember last 2 week’s Friday issue? Yup, I’m continuing with Aimee Carter’s Goddess Test series. And actually I’m putting it in mini review section, as it is a really small novella. I doubted if I should write the review, but I thought it would be good, so here it is.

The book is a small adventure of Kate’s and James’s while she went on her trip to Greece, yes, the book starts nearly right after the events in Goddess Test, so if you haven’t read the book yet, go and read it first, otherwise I’ll spoil a lot of fun for you. Ah, did I just loose a big part of readers right now? *sobs. But anyway, thank you the ones who stayed. Well, I expected a bit more from this novella, it’s not that tt was not interesting it’s just that it was too random and out of it. I would have liked to read more about the Greece itself rather then be again remained about Greek Gods idiotic rules and behaviours. However, the book again shows Kate from a very good side and you’ll love her very much. You’ll even have a respect for Henry for what he has done for her. So do you want to know what has happened during the very first 6 months with Kate? If yes, that’s your chance!

Enjoy it to its fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more review as well as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
