Book: Artemis Fowl

Yes, I delved into another series for children again. I can’t help that they are so easy to read and can be finished in a day. I’m a busy girl, with insufficient time to read, so these books are a good compromise. That said, I think I’ve read Artemis Fowl before. But it must have … Continue reading

Anime: Tamayura

I’m not sure how an OVA like this managed to pass me by.   I first heard of Tamayura when the anime series came out in 2011, but it was only recently when I was looking for anime to watch that I came across the OVA that aired in 2010. Tamayura is a beautiful anime … Continue reading

Book: The Reptile Room

Anime: Dantalian no Shoka: Ibarahime

An OVA episode containing a standalone episode of Dantalian no Shoka.   If you liked Dantalian no Shoka the first time, then there’s no reason why you wouldn’t like this OVA. It’s more of the same with Dalian and Hugh on a quest to recover a phantom book. The storyline of this particular OVA is … Continue reading

Book: The Bad Beginning

Yes I have reverted back to children’s books again. Don’t judge me. They are easier to read and because they are so short, it’s much faster for me to get through. Besides, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket has been on my to read list for a long time. When I saw it … Continue reading

Anime: Ghost Hound

Ghost Hound has been on my radar ever since it came out back in 2007. Produced by Production I.G, it sounded like my kind of show. But after an episode I never continued. Until now that is. The first half of the show was very psychologically based, a lot terms were thrown around and events … Continue reading

Book: At the Mountains of Madness

I first heard of H.P Lovecraft through Supernatural. Yes, you got that right. I heard about an author through a television show. It piqued my interest in him and the more read about who he was, the more I fell in love. Since then I’ve been trying read some of his stories. I managed to … Continue reading

A random movie post

I mentioned a few posts back that I made a trip to Italy. I am absolutely in love with that country and would love to go back to visit again, with a less packed itinerary and more time just to get lost and really enjoy the atmosphere. That aside, it’s a 12 hour flight from Singapore to … Continue reading

Book: Odd and the Frost Giants

Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman for World Book Day appeals to me because of its use of Norse mythology. I fell in love with Norse mythology since watching The Mythical Detective Loki Ragnarok and ever since then Loki has been my favourite Norse God. There have been plenty of other anime and books that … Continue reading

Anime: Nodame Cantabile OVA 2

  Here we have it, the OVA that ends the series on a hilarious note. Set after the finale, we see Nodame and Chiaki’s relationship in full eccentric glory. Just 12 minutes long it documents a fight between our favourite couple as well as Yuiko’s trip to Paris to visit Chiaki. It also shows a … Continue reading
