I Left The House Today! by Cassandra Calin

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

This was really cute! It was very short but still adorable and extremely relatable. The art style was simplistic but I really liked it. I’ve actually seen a bunch of the author’s comics online so this was a treat. I thought this might’ve been like a story that stretches out but it wasn’t anything like that, and the comics didn’t correlate with one another, but it was still light and cute.

No Vampire, No Happy Ending, Vol.1 by Shinya Shinya

No Vampire, No Happy Ending, Vol. 1 by Shinya Shinya

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This was such a weird book but I low-key loved it.

The characters were all really lovable, and the plot was strange but funny. I loved the animation and the humour was on point. I kept laughing because Arika was just hilarious and a little (okay, maybe very) crazy. The characters had consistent personalities and began to grow on me as I got farther into the book.

I thought the concept of the novel was unique and executed well. Arika discovers a vampire but he doesn’t live up to her fanatic and slightly (to say the least) high expectations. She begins to train him, but encounters obstacles along the way, like a sweet tooth and enemies that stand in their way.

I’ve never read something like this, but I still enjoyed it immensely, even though it very bizarre at times, it managed to be light and funny without coming off as forced. It’s a great read for when you just want to laugh and have fun with a book.

Now I’m off to sulk because I love the characters and I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
