My Thoughts

Review covers 4 chapters 

First of all, welcome back to Katie's Corner! I believe right now that this post is going live it should be either October or November. Maybe even further ahead. Why am I saying this? Well, now (that's while I'm writing it) it's October 2015 and my computer class on top of it. I finished my assignment, scout's word! But let me get back to what I want to talk about. 

As you have noticed lately I'm putting short, up to 4 volume long stories in the mini review section. I loved this work a lot.Mostly all Watanabe Shiho's works are not rosy0coloured. They're ruthless, might be cruel or even sadistic at times. But you just love them. The feeling of raw feelings makes you want to experience them, and you find yourself going back to the story again and again just to satisfy your need.

I do not want to talk a lot about the plot of the story, just that it's an arranged marriage story. But it's nothing like Hapi Mari, it's short but it's really deep. Oh, and the short story at the end? This one will leave you breathless!

Hope you'll read this amazing story! Enjoy it and don't forget to share your thoughts below! Stay tuned for more reviews as well as promos! Don't miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
