really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, magic, romance, teens, ya, young-adult
Read from September 15 to October 14, 2010

In my defense, I have to say that the book threw me for some loops. Why? Because I saw the anime before I ever knew it was a book or even read the book.

So I was (and shame on me for forgetting the main rule of books made into films of any type) anticipating one way and instead found something else entirely.

Oh there were moments when the anime followed the novel, but those were few. I liked both, don't get me wrong, but it was jarring and a little bit of struggle to put the anime out of my head long enough for me to enjoy the novel.
