Upcoming Vacation

In just a few short days, I'm going on vacation for a couple weeks. It's my first vacation in two years - I'm so excited! In between visiting family and friends, I plan on reading vast amounts of manga. During my last vacation, I got through more than 45 volumes. It was heaven.


My computer access will be iffy, and I haven't decided yet what I'm going to post on BookLikes or my blog in terms of reviews. I guess I'll see what I feel like doing when the time comes.


So far, here's what I plan to read (depending on what arrives at the library on time):

  • Attack on Titan
  • Kamisama Kiss
  • Naruto
  • The Story of Saiunkoku
  • Skip Beat!
  • Black Butler
  • Chi's Sweet Home
  • Nabari no ou
  • Shinobi Life
  • Captive Hearts


Just the thought of the manga binge-reading to come makes me happy.
