A New Year with Some More Snow Sprinkles.

Happy New Year!
I am really hoping that 2011 is going to be thee year for me. Last year... not so great, but this year is going to be different, it has to be. So to start off the year I changed the blog background to keep you on your toes. I also started the year out by reading a ton of manga over the break. Drum roll...time for my wonderful reading list with additional comments!
In no certain order I read:
Moon Boy which is about rabbit people from the moon being pursued by the fox people. It may sound a little strange but I liked how it came off as a modern fairy tale and the drawings are really cute.
Fruits Basket is about a girl whose mother died so she gets taken in by the family of a boy in her class. It just turns out that this family is cursed by the Chinese zodiac so when they are hugged by the opposite sex or become weak they turn into that animal. Very light and fluffy.
Children of the Sea is about a girl that meets a couple of peculiar boys through her father who works at the aquarium. These boys can swim like no human and are in tune with each other and sea animals in a way that can't be explained. The story and art of the books is amazing. I got hooked right away and can't wait till the next one comes out.
Others that I read were the manga adaptation of Maximum Ride along with the first two books of the Black Bird series. Feel free to leave manga suggestions in the comments, I am always on the look out for new ones to read.
The great thing about manga it feeds both my reading and art addiction at the same time.
Hope your year is off to a good start! Here's to hoping for an awesome 2011!
