Monday Review: The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia – Shigeru Miyamoto,Akira Himekawa, Mike Richardson, Nintendo

I got this a while back, and it’s amazing! I just had to get it as I love the Zelda games!

This book is recognizing 25 years of Zelda and talks about all the games up to Skyward Sword, the timeline, characters, designs, temples, Zelda history and even a bonus comic!

I plan on purchasing the LoZ Encyclopedia and the Art & Artifacts books in the future as well.

Free-post Friday- Rutger Hauer Tribute

Rutger Hauer recently passed away, and I thought I’d make a quick tribute here.

I know his work mainly from Blade Runner, but I’ve also seen or heard his voice in Ladyhawke, Sin City, Kingdom Hearts (video game), Observer (video game), Galavant and Batman Begins.

He was a great actor, had some memorable lines, and it’s sad to hear of his passing.

Monday Review: Kilala Princess (Book One) – Rika Tanaka and Nao Kodaka

I just got this book over the weekend because how could I not?! It’s got Disney, a manga and super cute!

I finished this manga in minutes, I was so captivated! The art is beautiful and the story is amazing!

This is about a school girl named Kilala, who dreams of being a princess, but tends to get in trouble!

While walking with her friend Erica, they spot a locked gate (that becomes important later), when Kilala gets home there is a boy laying in the grass. She assumes he’s under a sleeping spell and kisses him…which of course wakes him up! His name is Rei and is travelling with Valdou to find the chosen Princess in order to save their country.

At Kilala’s school, they choose an annual princess (complete with a ball), and Kilala thinks that is where Rei will find the Princess. When Erica is chosen as the princess, she is kidnapped!

Kilala,Rei and Valdou chase them and wind up at that locked gate! Valdou stays behind as Kilala opens the gate by reciting a prayer of sorts. At the other side of the gate,with Rei following behind, they have been transported to the world of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves!!!

Will Snow White be able to help them?

Can Kilala save her friend?

Who is the Princess?

What is happening at Rei and Valdou’s country that requires the chosen Princess?

Monday Review: The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue – Mackenzi Lee

(WARNING: CONTAINS ALCOHOL USAGE, HOMOSEXUALITY, SEXUAL THEMES, LANGUAGE,AND ABUSE)

This starts off in the eighteenth century. Monty Montague is a rich man, who sets off to tour Europe before going to work with his abusive father and become a lord.

He sets off with his best friend Percy (whom Monty has a deep crush for), a tutor, and his sister (who will be dropped off at her new finishing school).

At one of their stops, they go to a party where Monty steals a seemingly bland object. Just days after they leave the party, they are hunted down to retrieve the object but Monty and crew run.

They find out that the object actually belongs to someone else so they head off to return the object instead of continuing their tour, despite still being followed that could lead to their demise.

Will they find who they are looking for or will they be caught?

Will Monty and Percy reveal their feelings?

Will his sister decide to stay with the group or go to her school?
