“Sailor Moon Crystal” First Impressions: Ahhh~~ The Memories ^///^

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! I know that this post is quite delayed, but I felt that it should be shared regardless (and, to be quickly fitted in before the end of the month!). As the title has perhaps already hinted on, Sailor Moon is making her comeback (finally!!!) and she is back better than ever! Sailor Moon was my childhood, and it will remain in my memories as one of the most happiest times of my life. Kyaaaaa~~~ Fangirling time!!!

KYAAAAAA~~~~

KYAAAAAA~~~~

Ahem, so today’s first impressions will be on the first two episodes of the series, which were broadcasted on both the 5th and 19th of this month! It is sad that the anime will only release an episode every fortnight (I know, the shock, the horror!) but honestly, hardcore fans (such as myself *cough cough*) probably will wait patiently.

So, let us begin!!

I’M BACK!!! *spirit fingers* With a new start and new perspective for 2014!

keep-calm-because-i-am-back-2

Soooooo I am back from my much needed holiday to the Gold Coast!!! *Crackers and streamers go off* Yes, yes I am well aware that you have all missed me a lot (cough cough) but now I have returned, with a brain full of nothing and a body covered in a slight tan that makes me look more unhealthy then I really was :S

…This is going to be a great start to the new year, huh?

So, what I had wanted to do with this post is introduce to you all some of the new things I intend to do on this site in the coming future cause it’s time to start fresh and new, right?? Also, I want to list down my own personal goals for the new year because it is time to get yourself together Hyunnie!

Alright, so how this will work: two titles – Asia Review Maniac Goals for 2014 and Yami Hyunnie Goals for 2014. Each will list the goals I want to achieve for the year, and hopefully I will return and cross off which ones I have done on this post. If not, then a montage of the goals achieved may be made into some sort of post, and then linked here. Let’s just go with the flow, shall we?

So, let’s start!

Such a Rush” – Book Review Rant: Are these kids only 18 years old?!!!!!

Hi guys! I’m back with another book review! This time I had finished reading the book “Such a Rush” by Jennifer Echols. To be honest, I had finished this book a while ago (last week that is) but I didn’t have the time to type up something about it. So, forgive me if there are some things that aren’t quite clearly mentioned within this review/rant.

Yes, you saw that right – a rant. Which means…

SPOILER ALERT!!! And there is LOTS OF THEM!

Cover = nice looking if you see it on a shelf across the room. Close-up: not the same effect I realised

“Shades of Earth” – Book Review: WHAT??? NO MORE?! *sad face*

Hi guys!! Once again, sorry for the unexpected hiatus. Uni has started this week and so I’ve been trying to get back into the cycle once again. I have to admit, it still isn’t easy however I am so glad to be back. This way, my mum will stop asking me “What are you doing now?” because I have the perfect answer now: “Uni stuff”.

Anyway, enough of excuses, let’s begin the review!

A really pretty cover. It's a shame that it isn't mine though :(

“Forbidden” – Book Review & Update on life

Hey guys!! I am so sorry that I haven’t been doing anything over the past wen or so on this blog. The 30 day challenge absolutely drained it all out of me but I promise, more will come in the future on this blog. I’m currently watching a billion animes at once, and I can’t wait to share with you everything about them.

However, today I will be discussing to you all about the most recent book that I have finished reading called “Forbidden” by Tabitha Suzuma. A couple of days ago during the 30 day challenge, I had talked about this book briefly, but now I am back and ready to share with you all my thoughts on the book.

So, here goes!! (By the way, I’m typing this on my iPod so if there are any mistakes in grammar and/or spelling please forgive me ><)

Also note!! This review will contain spoilers so if you are intending to read this book then please stop reading any further and exit this post IMMEDIATELY!! Just to warn you hehe
