Historical mystery novel by Boris Akunin. 
Thrilling even though I guessed the bad guy. :D

Japania mangan avulla – A Japanese textbook manga-style.

Wan-wans are good. Frogs as well!


Ancillary Justice is awesome! Space opera with agender main character whose culture doesn't see gender at all, and so you usually don't know other characters' gender, but why should it matter anyway? ;-)

The Other Me is about a transgender teen's life, music and neeeeerds! I loved it. Although there were sad things, the book made me laugh so much! Like, look at this quote: “As if the fact that I love brussels sprouts isn't evidence enough of my being an alien, there's also the fact that no circuit board in the physics classroom works in my presence.” 
[I freaking love Brussels sprouts! Am I an alien too?!]


Glossary for people unfamiliar with South African life.

A story about boxing and girls' love.


The Return of Sherlock Holmes

Featuring Pompey! <3

Vol.4 of Sailor Moon! Jupiteeeer!
This volume made me cry...

Baby Sailor Pluto, awwwwwww.

The second book in the Persepolis series, this one tells about Marjane Satrapi's life in Austria and her return to Iran. Both books are very lovely.
