spindizzy: (OMG spoilers)
[personal profile] spindizzy
So, uh, funny story. I decided last week that reading twenty-eight books in a week was a totally doable plan if I stuck to graphic novels, and if I did that I would finish my reading challenge! Which is obviously madness and never to be attempted, and did I mention that I did that?

A screencap of the 'Reading challenge complete!' button from Goodreads and a chart showing 151/150 completed.


Part of my brain keeps being like "It's all graphic novels and manga and trade paperbacks, those don't count!" and I keep having to remind myself that yes they do. They are real books and it's still an achievement! ... That said though, oh man, there is so much prose in my future.

This week though, my continuing adventures in BL manga. As a reminder from last time: anything in the list with an asterisk next to it contains actual or attempted non-consensual/dubiously consensual sex, the jump tags SHOULD let you navigate around if you want to avoid those.

Books, Graphic Novels, and Manga read:
  1. Weekend Lovers by Kiriko Fuwa * [Jump]

  2. Oh My God! Volume One by Natsuho Shino [Jump]

  3. You Will Fall In Love by Hinako Takanaga [Jump]

  4. You Will Drown In Love Volume One by Hinako Takanaga * [Jump]

  5. The Moon and the Sandals Volume One by Fumi Yoshinaga [Jump]

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
