How to Save an Undead Life (Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy #1)

After being in prison for 5 years, Grier was finally released for a crime she didn’t commit. However, when vampires start coming after her she is really confused as she is a lowly apprentice. When her aunt, the Grande Dame, requests her presence at the inauguration, she goes looking for answers at the source.

This is a fairly new series, this book only came out in August 2017, and I’m so happy that I found it. I enjoyed the new world that we were dropped in. We are introduced to the world of the necromancers and Vampires. Vampires are actually a little different in this book, in comparison to the standard lore around them. The liberties that were taken by Edwards with the lore actually made a lot of sense. It also gave the world a special feel which I liked.

I did not like that Grier’s past, and reason that she went to prison was kept from the reader for so long. I get that the story is being told in a first-person voice, however, I really don’t know what it wasn’t mentioned before the halfway mark in the book. That was really annoying to me.

I am hoping that we get more information about the lore behind the necromancers. I’m certain that we’re going to learn more about Grier and her family in the future books, however, I have a feeling there is something going on between her and the vampires from this book.

I actually really enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Sorry, a Little Change in Schedule for a Month

Standard

So over the last 2 months, a lot of things have changed in my life. I have started a new job, my mother has fallen twice, and I have been running around with my head chopped off. Because of this I have sadly not had time to watch any dramas. I am determined to get back on schedule for February. This doesn’t mean that I will not be uploading on Thursdays. Just I’ll be uploading different content. The rest of the week will remain the same but I will but writing some fun little contents. You never know, this might start a new content that I will be continuing on.

I will try and cover some more Kpop, because it is really fun to cover and to talk about. I will try to also touch more on Japanese culture and media. Though I know I only have 1 post a week that contains Korean media but I love Japanese media and I want to work with it more.

I will try and play around with my blog a little more and have some fun with it again. I have a blast writing little additional post for you all and thinking up new things to talk about. I will continue to do what I’ve been doing but I will also love to try something new.

Thank you for your patience and I will see you in the next post.

The Hours of My Life

I’m going to warn you right now that this drama is a tear jerker and if you’re not looking for a good cry then this is not the show for you. I love this drama, but I did manage to spend most of the time cuddling my tissue box.

This drama follows Sawada Takuto (Miura Haruma) a normal college student who is struggling to find full-time employment after he finishes school. He is soon diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and it suddenly turns his world upside down. He decides that he won’t let his diagnosis stop him from enjoying life.So the tears come, not only from the diagnosis but the romantic aspect throughout the drama.

So the tears come, not only from the diagnosis but the romantic aspect throughout the drama. I don’t know anyone who has ALS so I can’t discuss if the depiction of the symptoms is accurate, but I know that it does shed light on how drastically a person’s life changes after the diagnosis. It also shows people that life isn’t over just because you get diagnose with ALS. I think that this drama is a good string board to talk about ALS and it’s side effects.

I have only ever seen Miura Haruma in the Last Cinderella and his acting in this is just as good.  Like I said before, I loved the drama but t’s not for people who don’t want to cry.
