Wednesday Wishes: Manga Edition

To be correct it's shojo manga edition. For some reason a lot of shojo titles have been capturing my attention!

Horimiya by Hero, Daisuke Hagiwara

Horimiya, Vol. 1  (Horimiya #1)Get it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Shojo Manga
Series: Horimiya, book 1

The springtime of youth bubbles over!!
At first glance, the ultra-popular Hori-san seems like a frivolous high school girl, but in reality, she's plain, pragmatic, and family-oriented. On the other hand, the bespectacled Miyamura-kun comes across as an average, gloomy high school fanboy, but he's actually an attractive young man who has a bad-boy streak and is covered in piercings and tattoos. When these two unexpectedly similar classmates have a random run-in outside of the classroom, a bubbly, sweet tale of school life begins!

This manga sounds so normal for a shojo storyline. But many Goodreads friends have told me that this is goes on to unique ways.

House of the Sun by Taamo

House of the SunGet it: Amazon | Goodreads
Genre: Shojo Manga
Series: Taiyou no Ie, book 1

"Back in the day, this place was like a house of magic. Surely there must have been an invisible wizard living here in such a place so filled with both tears and laughter. Or so I used to think."

What’s a young child to do when her mother leaves her father for another man? Or when her father remarries a woman who brings along a child from a previous marriage? Or when her childhood neighbor friend invites her to live with him?

This sounds really cute. But I like that it deals with a family breaking apart and forming a new one.
