MONDAY MISSIONS, Nov 07


Volumes 11-12 of the Kamisama Kiss manga series. 


I didn't read all three volumes that I planned to read last week, so I'll be reading 11 and 12 this week.


A divine comedy!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences rated teen.

Nanami Momozono is alone and homeless after her dad skips town to evade his gambling debts and the debt collectors kick her out of her apartment. So when a man she's just saved from a dog offers her his home, she jumps at the opportunity. But it turns out that his place is a shrine, and Nanami has unwittingly taken over his job as a local deity!

Kurama's father, the Sojobo of the Kurama tengu, is gravely ill. Nanami thinks she can cure him with her supply of Momotan, but first she needs to get past the magic shields of Jiro, the next in line for the leadership of the mountain. And Jiro isn’t the only thing on the mountain the gang needs to watch out for…




United as One (Lorien Legacies #7) by Pittacus Lore

I didn't get around to this one either... I really need to step it up this week. This is a library book and it will be due eventually... but as is normal for me, I'm stalling because it's the final book of the series and I JUST DON"T WANT IT TO END!

The seventh and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling I Am Number Four series! With United as One, this action-packed series comes to a surprising, breathtaking, and utterly satisfying conclusion. The Garde didn’t start this war, but they’ll do whatever it takes to end it once and for all. . . .

The Mogadorians have invaded Earth. Their warships loom over our most populated cities, and no country will risk taking them head on. The Garde are all that stand in the way, but they’ll need an army of their own to win this fight.

They’ve teamed up with the US military, but it might not be enough. The Garde need reinforcements, and they’ve found them in the most unexpected place. Teenagers from across the globe, like John Smith’s best friend, Sam, have developed abilities. So John and the others must get to them before the Mogs, because if they don’t their enemies will use these gifted teens for their own sinister plan.


But after all the Mogadorians have taken from John—his home, his family, his friends, and the person he loves most—he might not want to put any more lives in danger. He’s got nothing left to lose, and he’s just discovered he has been given an incredible new Legacy. Now he can turn himself into the ultimate weapon. So will he risk his life to save the world, or will he realize that power in numbers will save us all?

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

This is the FIRST book I'll be reading for Nonfiction November. ...listening to actually, although I did get it in print from the library for another option, I've had this on audiobook from audible for a while. I've started it before, during one of the readathons a few months ago, and I liked it... so I am looking forward to getting back into it. 

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?” 

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.
