This is a new post I’m trying, where I’ll go over what books I plan to start and/or finish through the week.
First on the list is Buddha, the 8-volume fantastical biography of Siddhartha by Osamu Tezuka. I’ve read it before, but I want to re-tackle my favorite Tezuka manga for next weeks Manga Movable Feast, this time hosted by Kate Dacey on The Manga Critic. Of course, Buddha can get a little heavy (thematically and literally – these are pretty big books) so I might not make it through; probably should have started the reread earlier.
I also want to finish reading Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I originally picked this book up as a possible addition to my craft essay book list, but it’s not proving as useful in character development as I originally thought. Still, it’s an interesting book. I’ll give my full impression when I’ve finished.
Another book that I own but have been putting off is Ouran High School Host Club volume 17. I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet; I’ll get on that.
What books do you want to read this week?
