Ugh, I'm so behind on LJ I don't want to even bother checking the flist. It's been rather frustrating being unable to fangirl like usual...It doesn't help when the computer freezes and I lose a good hour's worth of summary. T_T
1. Books in English I look forward to reading:
Coming out on June 24: Shadows Return by Lynn Flewelling is the long-awaited continuation of the Nightrunner series...Unfortunately, the blurb makes me cringe a little. I'm hoping the actual story will be better.
Coming out on July 8: Victory of Eagles by Naomi Novik, the 5th book of the Temeraire series...in hardback. :P I guess I'll be waiting a bit longer to own a copy...I'll probably spend several hours in a bookstore to read it, though. ^^;
2. I found out that one of my guilty pleasures manga, Renzu goshi no binetsu by Kaiya Tatsumi, was licensed when I was wandering through a store and saw a familiar cover on the shelves...Unfortunately they titled it Hot Steamy Glasses--talk about a lame title. In any case, I love this story because it is light-hearted and funny with amusing characters galore. One of the main guys is a successful president of an IT company, but he's an otaku and has been in love with his insensitive best friend for ages. Said insensitive best friend is...just plain amusing. They are both sweet, though. Love best friend's younger brother and IT guy's secretary, too. It's just silly fluff that makes me smile. XD
3. More crap I've dug up and want to get rid of:
Chobits Postcard Book, $6
Angel Sanctuary and Earl Cain Series Postcard book, $3
Full Metal Alchemist mug (never been used, still in box), $5
Anyone interested in the Igo Starter Box and/or Yuki Kaori's Angel Box (posted originally here)? How about $30 each?
