Yes I know it's almost 2018...I'm still catching up, okay? Between Uni and work I've been snatching time to blog.
Demon Love Spell Volume One
I was surprised by how much I liked this. In my review, and most of the manga reviews I have, I mention that I tend to be drawn towards the darker stories, like Attack on Titan or Tokyo Ghoul. But I really enjoyed Demon Love Spell. It's a little tongue in cheek and at times I found myself wincing a little bit at some of the comments I read. However, I still plan on carrying on with this series.
I have a review for Demon Love Spell Volume One here.
I really enjoyed the plot in this novel but my god I hated the format. Continuous text with no chapters? Um, no thank-you. I have Robinson Crusoe on my TBR and I'm a little afraid to pick it up now! Moll is a typical example of literature from the 1700's very morality focussed. What I find fascinating is that in the preface Defoe states that the story is based on a set of documents he found about a person named Moll that lived and had once been incarcerated in the Newgate!
Evelina, the more I think about it the more I like it. Like Moll, it didn't have chapters but was instead separated into letters. The satirical nature of the novel really appealed to my sense of humour and also decidedly feminist outlook. Frances Burney was writing during the time that manual for being a 'good woman' or something to that effect were common place. It's a great read and I love how outspoken Evelina is.
