  • Race of authors: 1 white, 3 asian and 1 middle eastern.
  • Age range: 3 adult and 2 YA.
  • Format: All paperback.

Alloy of Law – Brandon Sanderson (4.5 stars)

It felt so great to jump back into the world of Mistborn. This book is set 300 years after the events of The Hero of Ages and the world has evolved and changed. I really enjoyed meeting the new characters, seeing how the magic system has adapted, how the world has changed and where this series will take us next. It was super enjoyable and I sped through this book.

We Hunt the Flame – Hafsah Faizal (5 stars)

This was a book that the entirety of Book Twitter was raving about. After I saw all the positive tweets about it I had to pick it up and this book was worth the hype for me. It was actually better than I expected. I cannot wait to read the sequel and more of Faizal’s books in general.

Fullmetal Alchemist Vol. 13-15 – Hiromu Arakwa (5 stars)

Another instalment in a series I cannot praise enough. I enjoyed reading this instalment a lot as we get more backstory to certain major events in the books past and we get to learn bit more about the world as a whole. We also meet some very interesting characters as well. OOooo, the series is getting more and more intense and I love it.

Attack on Titan Vol. 1 – Hajime Isayama (3 stars)

So, I picked this up because I wanted to see how the first volume was compared to the first episode of the show. I will be honest, I was not blown away by this volume. The art style wasn’t my favourite and things felt quite rushed but I have faith that the series is going to get better with each volume I pick up.

Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 1 – Bisco Hatori (2.5 stars)

Another case of having seen the show and wanted to compare the original source material to the adaptation. This one also didn’t work out for some of the same reasons. Not a fan of the art style, things felt rushed and I just wasn’t enamoured by it.
