Tea Time and Books!

I've been getting a lot of books related items this month, so why not post about them! Earlier today, I went and got this yummy Darjeeling milk tea so I'll be drinking it as I write this.

First of all, I actually got this book two month ago and just finished reading it today. It's called Audacity by Shoi. It's the best Eruri (Erwin x Levi from Shingeki no Kyojin aka: "Attack on Titan") fan-fiction I've read! I'm so glad I bought it, even though it's online for free too. I highly recommend fellow Eruri shipper to read this, you won't be disappointed!!!  

Here is a selfie of me and the book. Apparently, in this picture I looked like Levi according to my friend. It's actually a coincidence... I just got back from my work and didn't change out of my work uniform yet. But, perhaps I would make a good Levi if I cosplay him? (●´ω`●)ゞ

Here is the close up picture of the book~

Moving on, my local book store had a special promotion on manga books, buy two get one free. Surely I couldn't miss out on this deal! I bought two volumes of Karneval by Touya Mikanagi and got a Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE omnibus 1 for free (But I gave it to my little sister). Karneval's art style actually reminds me of my best friend's style (perhaps that's why I like it so much). The story is very interesting if you like action genre. Not to mention all the dorkable moments the characters have! 

Here is Nai (white hair) on the right and Yogi (Blond hair) on the left of the front covers.

And here is Gareki (Black hair, also my favorite character of Karneval) and Karoku (Blue hair) on the back covers.

This why Gareki is my favorite character, he acts all stoic and delinquent-like, but he's actually very cute.

Teehee~ My favorite scene is Gareki getting carried by Eva like a bride. Isn't he just too adorable ? (ノ)´∀`(ヾ)

And here is my favorite BL author/ artist, Guilt Pleasure! This time it's a different series called The Doll. The small booklet on the right is a preview of The Doll sequel: Persona Non Grata. If you like dark themes, this would be the book for you. Once I start reading this, I couldn't put down till I finished it. GP does such a wonderful job as always!

Last but not least are my Nitro+Chiral art books! Funny story about this, I ordered the DRAMAtical Murder art book, the Lamento: Green Notes art book, and won the bid on Sweet Pool Official Works from the same seller. However, when I opened my package they sent me Lamento Official Works instead of my Sweet Pool art book. I contacted the seller right away and two days later I got my Sweet Pool art book. In the end, the seller let me keep the Lamento Official Works as an extra/ apology. I would definitely order from them again!

Lamento Official Works (the freebies I got)!

I'm so excited to have them, I've always wanted their art books but kept putting it off. All of Nitro+Chiral arts are so gorgeous! ( ๑॔˃ ॢ‧̫˂)ॢ♡̷˚๐

On the last note, I finally got my Noiz nendoroid! Hopefully, I will have time to do a little review/ box opening on him in my next post. Thanks for reading, till next time! (ᅌᴗᅌ* ) 


  1. I really like these kind of short review posts! <3 It's fun seeing what people buy and read.

    Ohhh I didn't know they made real print copies of some fanfictions?! Wonderful idea! I can totally understand why you'd want to own a printed version of your favorite fanfics. I used to print my favorites back when my main fandom was Yami no Matsuei. Later I've usualle saved them on my hard drive so I can read them when I feel like it.

    Come to think of it, I haven't read fanfics in ages! D: Probably because since I've become able to read doujinshis in Japanese I haven't felt the need to read fanfics that much. But I do love fanfics. <3 Do you know any good DMMd or Togainu no Chi ones you could recommend for me? I don't really mind the pairings, everything goes if it's a good fic. (Koujaku/Aoba, Mizuki/Aoba, Motomi/Akira and Keisuke/Akira are my favs though).

    Hey, you could really cosplay Levi, it's look so good on you! <3 You have a "cosplaying-face", I bet you would look good in any cosplay.

    I have he same DMMd and Sweet Pool art books. They are awesome~ <3 I love artbooks.

  2. I love these kinds of reviews too, it's fun to read and I'm glad you like it. I didn't know they sell real copies of fanfics until I bought this one. I love Yami no Matsuei too, though I haven't seen any updates in a few years. Did the author stop drawing or something?

    I haven't read much of any N+C fanfics myself, so I won't be able to recommend you any. But if I ever found any, I'll tell you. :D

    Thanks so much! (´,,•ω•,,) However, I don't cosplay often.... they are quite an expensive hobby (I got my plate full of BJD hobby expenses already (๑•́₋•̩̥̀๑) ) Perhaps, I should do a post of all my cosplay so far....
