Synopsis: This book is based off the classic stories by Edgar Allan Poe. The book is a manga modernized version of the stories. The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe includes; The Tell-Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Raven, The Masque of the Red Death and The Fall of the House of Usher. This graphic novel is targeted for young adult and teenage readers. It has different artwork by different artist for each story.

Review: I absolutely loved this manga! I know I usually post fiction reviews but I have to admit I like my manga too. My inner nerd was screaming out to me when it saw manga and Poe in one book. I felt like this book was the perfect modernized creation of Poe possible. The artwork was beautiful and the stories had me on the edge of my seat turning pages. Who knew Poe could be so much fun? I think this book is great for students, so they can learn the work of Poe without all that out of date language. Students and other young people will be able to get the same great feel and thrill that Poe gives us, it would just be delivered in an more modernized and artistic fashion. 

Thanks dudes and dudettes for checking out my blog! Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Mr. Right Now is planning on forever…

Gigi Duval doesn’t do relationships, especially with her heart and career on the line. She values two things–her image and a good time in the bedroom. Watching men lie and cheat her whole life hardened her against “happily ever after”. When she interviews with Roman Bishop, the sexy co-owner of Ink Spinners Tattoo, she begins to wonder if he might be more than a casual fling. Only one thing is certain: Roman is off limits. Gigi can’t possibly add her best friend’s brother to her little pink book. Or can she?

*Review: The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg~ 3.5 stars*

Hey guys so I decided to read The Heist because I am a huge fan of the Stephanie Plum Series, The Knight and Moon Series and Full Series by Janet Evanovich. She has hilarious work and have loved everything so far. This title was funny and I can see why some people enjoyed it quite a bit.

Synopsis: Kate O’Hare is a stubborn, obsessed, and workaholic FBI agent.Her obsession is catching notorious con artist Nicholas Fox. After pouring long hours into her work and every trick in the book she catches Fox and puts him on his ass. She feels confident and stellar until she realizes that the FBI strikes up a deal with Fox, that he now works for them catching criminals. They want Fox because they can do things that are technically not allowed and sometimes illegal. I mean why else hire a criminal? Who would know better how to catch a criminal than a criminal himself? Aggravated and annoyed Kate doesn’t want to have to work with Fox. Besides the fact Fox is a criminal, they seem to have an attraction to each other and annoy the shit out of each other completely. Kate reluctantly agrees and starts working with Nick. Are they able to track down and convict a big time investment banker? Can they gather a team and not get arrested? Read The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg to go on this adventure and find out.

So dudes and dudettes… The reason I have this 3 1\2 stars was because this book reminded me too much of the show White Collar.It’s a USA show and I binged watched it last year on Netflix. The book was funny but I couldn’t stop thinking of the similarities and comparing the two which drove me bonkers and distracted me too much. This book had some decent humor and was a good story. Just my personal preference, I probably won’t be finishing this series but if you enjoy Evanovich and looking for something a tad different than Plum, this may be the choice for you. Hope everyone has a fantastic night! Love y’all in the mouth! 🌈💖📚📖📰📓
