Jon’s April 2022 Creator Showcase: Sixty-Three Posts to Fill Your Spring Schedule!

Hey everyone and welcome back to the blog! So sorry this post is coming out SUPER late but I completely forgot that it was the holidays (and I had made plans with people)…and I kind of figured since there was no May host…I could get away with posting a bit late. I promise I don’t usually take this long, rip. I may be missing some hours of sleep the coffee helped out in the morning but now it’s like 3am and just oomph but I am so excited to share with you all, the biggest showcase I’ve hosted thus far!

It’s been a while since I last wrote a post like this and I feel the rust on my fingers, but I really felt like CRYING about this and a review doesn’t afford me too much leeway with spoilers. So, hello, I’m back with another “in-depth” look at something I thought was interesting! If anyone would like to join me, feel free to post about the topic of father-daughter relationships, or, if you’ve watched Arcane, go in-depth about something in Arcane

Oh wow, how long has it been since I last posted here? Not as long as before but still some time ago. I’ve been steadily reading, but writing is always its own challenge. But today I read this webcomic and since it was technically one of those “free for review”…well, here I am. But I would like to try to come back…at least once a week. Let’s see how that goes

[Review] The Downstairs Resident is Mr. Fudanshi – A Real BL Love Story by Kuroiwa Chihaya

I was on a bit of a manga reading spree earlier this month and since Futekiya had some nice titles on the front page, I thought, why not? I haven’t really read another BL title with a fudanshi as the main character (although I’ve seen one that was pretty popular, just never picked it up myself) so I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into.

I’m not sure how to express how this series made me feel in just a quick sentence, so here’s this post instead

You know what feels great? Logging into Goodreads and finding that I am 19 books ahead of “schedule”. What schedule? The one that Goodreads apparently made where I will successfully read 120 books this year. I am so on top of this that I am sooooo tempted to make that number bigger but I’m only just stopping myself because, what if I go into a slump?! It’s only February! Sadly, I’ve yet to figure out how to transfer all of the feels into blog posts because I think I’ve only reviewed (with this post out now) like three books this year?!

I really need to get myself together. Also, this is a NetGalley title, which means I received a free (temporary) copy in exchange for a review

[Review] My Perverted Youth – Just Give Into Your Own Perversion by Takashi Hata

I’m not usually a big fan of an older drawing style, which is why I haven’t read titles like X, which I own but have just been collecting dust on my shelves. So I’m not sure what exactly made me pick this title up. I mean, there was something that I found really cute about the composition I suppose, and ok, that title, EPIC

I was not prepared for this book
