New Reading Material!

Kinda burnt out on Shojo lately and promised myself to move on to some newer Josei I’ve wanted to read for a while but this sounded too cute to pass up on! What new serials are you reading?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    OMG I love that manga!!! That author is great, have you read Tail of the Moon? If you haven’t, you should definitely check it out ^_^

    • the Muse

      hey chib 😀 Yup! that’s why I actually purchased this. It’s rather cute so far 😀 Have you read?

  • chibininja

    Yup! I actually started reading it on, and then I found out Viz had licensed it for the US. So exciting! I really love how she puts a historical spin on her stories.

      me too chib! I can’t wait for v2 out shortly (or could be out already..think it was April or may 28th 🙂

    I have to read:
    Nana (Way behind, I only have 8 volumes)
    tsubasa reservoir chronicle (Super behind I think I’m at vol 13)
    Maison Ikkoku (Have the whole series, just need to read it)
    Fruits Basket (Have the whole series, just need to read it)

    I tend to horde my manga because I buy it so rarely that I rather have unread copies than read them and have nothing left to read! lol

    • the Muse

      kate guilty as charged way behind on nana too 😀 Fruits Baskets I try never to get behind, love the series too much 😀 awww LOL! Over indulge my manga/comic sweet tooth 😀

        Husband bought me the first three volumes of Honey Hunt as one of my Christmas presents. He then laughed over how excited I was.

        I’m still mourning the passing of Shojo Beat! 🙁

          awww kate! you’re cute 😀 who doesn’t love good manga?!

  • Fuuka

    Anything by Ai Yazawa! I have moved onto more josei recently too, but “Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu” is AMAZING. One of those dramatic love stories that makes you laugh and cry.

    • the Muse

      Ai Yazawa is fav fuuka 😀 I don’t think Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu was ever released in the US due to the story/content. Have you found this in the US? or maybe you aren’t in the US 😀 I moved on to josei as I was a little tired or shojo plus wanted a bit more maturity in my romance haha!
