Sunday Sweets

This is a fun meme hosed over at The Story Siren, In My Mailbox. This allows everyone to see what books you got for the week!

This past week I've ordered a lot of books online. Sadly only one has come so far.

This one is from Overstock. Indeed it's a Manga, I feel kinda of annoyed because it's volume 10. I've only read up to volume 4.
Red River, Vol. 10
I've been ordering from Overstock from years, and one of my biggest fears is that they would not send  me a book. After all I make huge orders when I buy from them, and errors are bound to happen. Strangely enough an error has occurred. They sent me an extra book!

Scandal's Bride (Cynster, #3)
Funny thing, it's a Historical Romance. So I got a little freebie to try out for my Romance Experiment, which I am so excited. The first few pages of the book are pretty good and the description isn't bad! Gotta love free books!

Hope everyone had a good book week!

Ooh, Red River looks great! I haven't been keeping up with mangas, but I'm sure there are great ones out there.

Also haven't been much of a Manga fan, but I have to admit that I could make an exception for a few. What is the first book in this Manga series if you don't mind me asking?

If you're not much of a Manga fan and you haven't read much, I would suggest reading Fruits Basket. I've been a long time Anime fan, but could never get into manga. Fruits Basket will blow you away, it's where I have most newbies start. I have yet to find anyone who hasn't liked it.

For manga they really don't give separate names for each one. The first one is Red River Volume 1. Then so on tell you hit the final volume, which I think is Volume 24? Oops, 28 volumes!

Red River is definitely a smarter and more engaging manga.
