Goth
I’ve selected another manga this week, I guess I’m really into my manga horror lately! Goth by Otsuichi sounds perfect & I really like the cover too.
GRA notebook that leads to murder – a refrigerator filled with hands… a pit of dead dogs… an accidental suicide… a boy buried alive – and where two teenagers linked by an obsession with murder and torture explore the recesses of humanity’s dark side.

Bought (paperback):
Lord Loss, Demon Thief, Slawter and Bec by Darren Shan

What can I say? I got a little buy happy this week and I’ve read his other series a few years back. Guess I wanted some good ol’ gore and horror in my life again! Also I managed to find them a little cheaper because book 1 and 2 are in one book and 3 and 4 are in another, the whole series has been paired up and published like this but they’re not on Goodreads. Maybe I’ll fix that at a later date.

Q. What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.

A. Honestly I can’t really think of any, I guess most of the time its mostly only when they use a metaphor I don’t understand mainly due to the fact that I live in a bubble :3

Magnificently Magic Read-a-thon Sign Up

Magnificently magic readathon
Stopping by today to let you know of a Read-a-thon a lovely two months in advance so you can put this weekend aside and create a stack of books to zoom through.
Faye at A Daydreamers Thoughts is hosting “Magnificently Magic Read-A-Thon” as Christmas can be a very magical time of the year so this read-a-thon reflects all the wonder and magic that surrounds us whilst we’re snuggled by the fire with marshmallowed hot chocolates and snow decorated window frames.
The aim of the read-a-thon is to read any magical book possible – either witches, fairies/fey, books that feel magical, books with a winder setting or even a Christmas themed book or two, basically your choice with how you’d like to approach this.
Faye has also hinted at the fact there may even be a few Christmas surprises throughout and is open to hearing if a different or extended time slot would be preferred, don’t forget to stop by her post or contact her because help is always nice.

Wishlist Wednesday (19)

After seeing a friend on goodreads give The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett a glowing five star review I had to add it to my wishlist!
The Painted Man (Demon Cycle, #1)GR: Mankind has ceded the night to the corelings, demons that rise up out of the ground each day at dusk, killing and destroying at will until dawn, when the sun banishes them back to the Core. As darkness falls, the world’s few surviving humans hide behind magical wards, praying the magic can see them through another night. As years pass, the distances between each tiny village seem longer and longer. It seems nothing can harm the corelings, or bring humanity back together.
Born into these isolated hamlets are three children. A Messenger teaches young Arlen that fear, more than the demons, has crippled humanity. Leesha finds her perfect life destroyed by a simple lie, and is reduced to gathering herbs for an old woman more fearsome than the demons at night. And Rojer’s life is changed forever when a traveling minstrel comes to his town and plays his fiddle.
But these three children all have something in common. They are all stubborn, and know that there is more to the world than what they’ve been told, if only they can risk leaving their safe wards to find it.
