Title: Nabari No Ou Vol. 1-14
Author: Yuhki Kamatani
Apathetic schoolboy Miharu Rokujou is content to meander through life in the sleepy village of Banten. But his quiet existence is shattered when the Grey Wolves of Iga, a powerful ninja clan, attempt to kidnap him in broad daylight. Only then does Miharu discover that the ultimate power of the hidden ninja realm - a power that can do both great good and great harm - is sealed within his body. As battles erupt among rival ninja clans seeking to control him, Miharu must overcome his apathy and learn the ways of the ninja if he wants any shot at survival!
This story is full of laughs and tears, and really well written but left open. The anime didn't do the story any justice that's for sure. I liked it a lot... almost as much as Darker than Black which so far is my fav.

Title: I Hate Myselfie
Author: Shane Dawson
Rating: 5/5, LOVE IT
Reviewing for Netgalley (Archiving on March 30th)
Description: The book that more than 12 million YouTube subscribers have been waiting for! Shane Dawson’s memoir features twenty original essays—uncensored yet surprisingly sweet. Shane Dawson has always been an open book. From his first YouTube vlog back in 2008, to his feature film debut "Not Cool," to a cover story in Variety magazine, Shane has documented his life pre-tty thoroughly. We’ve seen awkward and adorable Q&As with his mom, weight loss center drama, love life details, and the all-important haircut reveal. We’ve seen his hilarious spoofs of Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Sarah Palin. His music videos are awesome. But in I Hate Myselfie!, fans will finally get a chance to see the real Shane through personal stories that are at once humorous and heartwarming, self-deprecating and totally inspiring. Highlighting key moments of his childhood and adolescence, through his phenomenal success on YouTube, and continuing on to his more recent experiences as an actor and director, Shane’s memoir will feature the silliness and satire his fans already enjoy, but it will be even more in depth, more real, and more portable (it’s a book). (from Shelfari)
My Review: Truly a rollercoaster, from laughing out loud to crying. I really enjoyed reading this book and his thoughts since I've been a fan of Shane Dawson since I stumbled onto his YouTube channel years ago. And reading this book I find his crude humor refreshing because he doesn't fear what people really think about him. Shane Dawson is Shane Dawson and he will be himself. And I totally love him for who he is! Keep up the good job and if you write more book I will read them... for sure!
