To be honest, if you read my reviews, I didn't think too much of it at all really, which is a shame I think. I'd really like to get along with Jane better but I've never really been able to see what so many fans around the world can see in her. I've 'read' (I could only get through to the ends by listening to them on audio book, but I was determined to finish them!) both Emma and last year I 'read' Pride and Predjudice, which I actually quite liked. However, I'm not sure if I should try anymore Austen or not...I obviously just don't get her!

Amanda 24. Absolute Boyfriend 4 by Yuu Watase

Yes I know I have added quite a few manga and graphic novels this year but...I want to! I'm keeping note of how many I read and will deduct them from my final figure at the end of the year though.

Amanda, Have you seen/read a Manga series called "Fruits Basket"? My grand-daughter got interested in Manga about two years ago (she's 17 now) and actually in the Japanese culture also. Last year I was at their house all day and the whole series was playing on the TV, (I think there are around 20 episodes), so I watched for awhile, and really got interested in the story. It seems that a particular family was cursed by one of their ancestors so that if they ever kissed one of the opposite sex they would turn into an animal, each member of the family having their own kind of animal. An outsider is allowed into the family, a young girl with a good heart, and she changes the family for the good...I won't say more in case you want to check it out for yourself. I had seen a couple of M series episodes before and wasn't impressed, I thought they were too dark, and I thought all Manga was like that, but I really liked Fruits Basket. (I also googled it on Wikipedia to see what I missed in the storyline)

Amanda Yes, I have read Fruits Basket. Its an excellent series! Unfortunatly I didn't complete it though...I think I got to volume 9 or 11 or something before I couldn't buy anymore. Definately one of the better mangas on there and a series I need to come back to!

Amanda The Magna Carta in Salisbury byJohn McIlwain

Not actually going to count this, as it is only a little booklet.


message 42: by Amanda (new)

Amanda 36. The Midwich Cuckoos by John Wyndham

If I am honest...I've not read the final two chapters. I've been trying to finish this one for weeks and have found it so hard going, I'm afraid I've had to give up!

Amanda 38. Ghost World by Daniel Clowes

Another graphic novel...but this one is a classic!
