Supposedly I'll just focus on finishing Demon's Lexicon. But today there was a possibility that we might drop by a bookstore today... what if Vampirates turned out to be addicting? I thought of reading some chapters on it to have an idea whether I'll be hooked to it or not. Because if I did, I would want to grab the later installments as soon as possible xD

So anywayz, we didn't drop by at a bookstore in the end but I did fall in love with Vampirates~ Well, it's too fast paced for me though.... but things might turn out to be better than I hoped for in later chapters, hehe. What I like about it so far is the sibling love (Daaaw~ Those twins) and there are FEMALE pirates! Hooray to no gender stereotypes! =D

With Demon's Lexicon.... I like the bro complex fanservice but.... it's starting to overflow that it's becoming... sickening o_O I'm not that pleased with the story so far either. Only the humor is making me go on. So yeah, I feel like I'm jsut forcing myself to finish this. I don't think I'll be anticipating for its sequel ^^;

Lastly, I'm actually in "no book buying until the international book fair" mode... and having good control on that so far. However, I couldn't resist getting Gimmick volume 1 ^^; Ehehehe.... I see the later volumes often, but the first volume's hard to find. So I didn't have second thoughts when I miraculously spotted this one. Hehe. Hopefully it's as good as it seemed. If it is, I'll no longer have second thoughts in buying the later volumes~
