I’m trying hard to tidy up all my previous summer purchases since it’s gonna be nearly a year they are sitting down in my accounts.

I bought lots of books this month. One day, I hope to be able to get all those manga adaptations based on Western romance novels. o (◡‿◡✿)

Now, let’s take a peek at my acquisitions.

(more…)

I really like Hashimoto Takako’s art style. She’s amongst my favourite illustrators for the Harlequin and Romance comics. Though I wouldn’t purchase just any book drawn by her hand.

The Marriage DebtThe fact is that the plot of The Marriage Debt novel appeals to me very much. Starting with the heroine having to marry a convict sentenced to death, how can I resist such an introduction, set in the Regency era?

The Marriage Debt 1Combine this storyline with Hashimoto-sensei’s drawings, which seem prettier than usual to me — Nicholas’ shaggy appearance at the beginning is so masculine, even Hashimoto-sensei’s unkempt males are sexy ✿♥‿♥✿ —, you get here all the right incentives for me to buy this manga. I’ve wanted to purchase it ever since I first glimpsed at it.

Now, it’s done. And despite my inability to read Japanese, the manga feels quite lovely.
