The Demon Prince of Momochi House, Vol. 1Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura, Vol. 02 (Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura, #2)

The Demon Prince of Momochi House vol. 1 by Aya Shouoto (PBK)
Looks a lot like Kamisama Kiss, which could be either a good or bad thing - we'll see.

Sakura Hime vol. 2 by Arina Tanemura (PBK)
Really enjoyed the first volume (see below), so I'm excited to see where the series goes!

Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You, Vol. 11
kimi ni todoke vol. 11 by Karuho Shiina (PBK)
This series began a really good read, but the main couple getting together dragged on so long I eventually got seriously frustrated. Now that they're together (FINALLY) I think it's time for a break. 

The Cage (The Cage, #1)School for SidekicksSakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura, Vol. 01 (Sakura Hime: The Legend of Princess Sakura, #1)

The Cage by Megan Shepherd (ARC)
2.5 Stars. Like the characters in their cage I slowly went mad in the pages of this book. The story was not the good chill of a read that I expected, instead a slow build of dread and delusion that disturbed me. However, while I really struggled with the first three-fourths of the book, the alien parts were interesting and the last few chapters were engaging enough that I actually want to read the next book to see what happens. Review to come.

School for Sidekicks by Kelly McCullough (ARC)
4 Stars. Seriously fun middle grade superhero adventure! A campy but also complex story about heroes and villains. The first half was a little young for my reading mood, but I really enjoyed the second half. Definitely hoping for a sequel! Review to come.

Sakura Hime vol. 1 by Arina Tanemura (PBK)
4 Stars. A new twist on the classic princess with powers trope. Really intriguing, will definitely be reading more!

LinesmanThe Invisible Library (The Invisible Library #1)

Linesman by S.K. Dunstall (MMP)
The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman (PBK)
I've been craving an adult sci-fi so Linesman is really tempting, but Invisible Library has been calling me for a while so I'm torn! Will finish my manga pile and then see what piques my interest the most this weekend...

So what are you reading this week?
