Tokyo Ghoul Monster Edition

So I really enjoy the anime a lot of Tokyo Ghoul. The manga just finish up so I think the anime series might be almost over also. Think there about two seasons now on hulu. Prey for a third season soon. For those new to the anime no worries, its on hulu to watch and all. Lucky barnes and nobles doing this monster edition so kinda like 3 books in one, for those you want to start collecting the manga. Monster Edition will be out Nov. 21st. For my readers if you like anime and manga reviews on my blog let me know. I like to mix it up sometimes and do both once in a while as I count manga as books. Here is the cover reveal for the monster edition along with Tokyo Ghoul summary for those new to the anime and series. Enjoy and Happy Reading!

TokyoGhoulMonster

Anime Summary:

Tokyo Ghoul is set in an alternate reality where ghouls, individuals who can only survive by eating human flesh, live among the normal humans in secret, hiding their true nature to evade pursuit from the authorities. Including enhanced speed, senses, and regenerative ability, a regular ghoul is several times stronger than a normal human, has a skin resistant to ordinary piercing weapons and has at least one special predatory organ called a “Kagune”, which it can manifest and use as a weapon during combat. Another distinctive trait of ghouls is that when they are excited or hungry, the color of their sclera in both eyes turns black and their irises red. This mutation is known as a “kakugan.” In the case of a half-ghoul, only one of the eyes undergoes the transformation. A half-ghoul can either be born naturally as a ghoul and a human’s offspring, or artificially created by transplanting some ghoul organs into a human. In both cases, a half-ghoul is usually much stronger than a pure-blood ghoul. There is also the case of half-humans, hybrids of ghouls and humans that can feed like normal humans and lack a Kagune while possessing enhanced abilities, but shortened lifespans. To hunt down the ghouls, several government-sponsored organizations around the world were created.

New York Comic Con

I was lucky to head to NYCC Thursday, then was lucky enough to score free tickets for Sunday as well. Sorry it took so long posting an update. When I got home Sunday was very sick with fever and still fighting off an cold and bad cough. Well I had such an blast at comic con. I was like in nerd heaven with so many fandom all over the place. I am a big gamer, anime, tv show, reader nerd over here. I like a bit of everything and test the waters out. As you can tell with some of my anime posts on here. Since I count manga as books as well. Thursday meet up with some friends and we got down to business and I mean book business. We wanted this one book Renegades everyone dying to get hands one. Lucky was number one in line for that. 22195375_10210604841623844_3529192876226728524_n

Then while I was busy playing at NYCC, I made my friend back at home race over to hot topic to grab me Sailor V NYCC edition funko pop. Thought they were gonna be sold out, boy was I wrong, hardly no one wanted my Sailor V. So Sad! Own my friends a huge pizza party and lots of love for that.

Mostly explore and took some pictures Thursday for fun and got tons of free books. Brought an new Sailor Moon shirt. You never to old to watch anime and still love Sailor Moon. Will leave you off with some pictures from Thursday Comic con and book haul..

 

 

Then let’s get to Sunday fun day. Again meet up with my booknerd friends. This time I had on my doctor who dress. Sorry just putting both days in one long post. Still not really over this head cold yet so bare with me. Sunday thought I would come home with about two books I only wanted, boy was I wrong. Had a nice mini book haul again and everyone love my dress. Mostly hang around the books section b/c everything was packed with people, more then Thursday. Very long day and was starting to get sick. Took not to many pictures this time. So here is Sunday pictures and fun.

 

 

This would be easy doing on video but hate the sound of my voice. After i got home was fever sick and still am. Took me a while to pick up a book again and start reading. Being drugs and half sleeping this week did not help me with reading much. Here is what me and Bella are reading next. We are reading Ship of the Dead the last Magnus Chase book of Rick Riordan. Never review any of his books on here before and have no idea how to start that since he has over 12 books and about 3 or 4 different series to keep track of. So here is Bella with the book. Enjoy and Happy Reading!

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst

21433247_10210416372192226_2938908793569505950_n

Book Summary: 

Pearl is a sixteen-year-old vampire… fond of blood, allergic to sunlight, and mostly evil… until the night a sparkly unicorn stabs her through the heart with his horn. Oops. 

Her family thinks she was attacked by a vampire hunter (because, obviously, unicorns don’t exist), and they’re shocked she survived. They’re even more shocked when Pearl discovers she can now withstand the sun. But they quickly find a way to make use of her new talent. The Vampire King of New England has chosen Pearl’s family to host his feast. If Pearl enrolls in high school, she can make lots of human friends and lure them to the King’s feast—as the entrees. 

The only problem? Pearl’s starting to feel the twinges of a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends—especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache—to be slaughtered? Then again, she’s definitely dead if she lets down her family. What’s a sunlight-loving vamp to do?

 

My Review:

So what happens when an unicorn stabs a vampire in the heart? That’s what happen to 16 year old Pearl one faithful night. Now she somehow can handle daylight. With her family pushing her to enter high school to try to become one of them. Read this book years ago, it was a good fast read. Get to see what it’s like for an vampire to pass off being human. The catch is she must bring home food for a big party coming up. With Pearl now becoming more human like, will she have the heart to serve her new friends to her family? Whatever happen to that unicorn that stab her in the heart? So many life’s answer to be solve by picking up the book for yourself. Lucky barnes and nobles have the books in stock to get ready for the movie. This month lifetime movie network will air Drink, Slay, Love on tv. Happy Reading and watching. Here is teaser Trailer.
