Stand Alone

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Age Group: Young Adult/Adult

Genre: Horror, Gothic, Classic

Release Date: First pub. 1890

Synopsis: First published in 1892, The Yellow Wall-Paper is written as the secret journal of a woman who, failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood, is sentenced to a country rest cure. Though she longs to write, her husband and doctor forbid it, prescribing instead complete passivity. In the involuntary confinement of her bedroom, the hero creates a reality of her own beyond the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wallpaper – a pattern that has come to symbolize her own imprisonment. Narrated with superb psychological and dramatic precision, The Yellow Wall-Paper stands out not only for the imaginative authenticity with which it depicts one woman’s descent into insanity, but also for the power of its testimony to the importance of freedom and self-empowerment for women.

My Thoughts:

Such a deliciously creepy story this book is! The Yellow Wallpaper is an unnerving story, to say the least. The short story sent shivers down my spine quite frequently. But this is also a short story that made me  feel a quiet sadness that I didn’t know I was feeling until I finished the last sentence.

With only a few more than ten pages, The Yellow Wallpaper packs quite a punch–much like Ray Bradbury’s All Summer in a Day. It always surprises me when I read stories that are able to show so much in such a small amount of pages.

The Yellow Wallpaper is written as a journal by a woman who has been given a country rest cure. Confined in a room with barred windows, nailed-down furniture, a gated door, and ugly yellow wallpaper whose design has no pattern, the woman is denied any meaningful things to do, no stimulation for her mind. This clashes with her already mildly unstable mind and causes her to grow more obsessive and insane.

Gilman writes the story in such a way that it is actually hard to see when the woman’s sanity starts to crumble. The reader will be probably so enraptured that they will only notice the signs. It is only when you get to end that you really realize that the woman has been driven completely insane by the confinement, but by then it is already way to late… Her mind is already screaming.

The yellow wallpaper that the story is centered mostly upon is quite the mystery. There are many ways one can interpret the ‘meaning’ behind it. One could say that it represents how the woman has been imprisoned by her unstable state of mind. One could also say that the wallpaper represents how women in that time have been limited as people and mostly put under the rule of men (this seems to be the most shared interpretation). Again, there are many ways to interpret the story.

The writing is surprisingly light compared to many other classics. The prose is clean and pretty, but not heavy and wordy. And I loved it that way. It was easy to follow and compelling… It was the very definition of ‘readable’. Even with my tired, frazzled mind I was able to follow it.

And I must talk about the ending! I don’t want to spoil it by saying exactly what happened, but I do want to tell you all that it is as shocking as it is haunting. Never have I been so frightened (that seems like the best word) by an ending…

This is a breathtaking story that obviously had a lot of thought put into it. I did some research on the author and found some interesting facts about her reasons behind writing this beast (and beauty) of a short story. You can read it here.

Pandora Hearts Vol.6 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, #6Pandora Hearts Volume 6 by Jun Mochizuki

Series: Pandora Hearts #6

My rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Genre: Shounen, Fantasy, Paranormal, Mystery

Publisher: Yen Press

Synopsis: Though Oz’s sudden appearance in the midst of Pandora wreaks havoc, the initially chilly reception to the prison-breaker runs more than warm when Jack Vessalius, hero of the tragedy of Sablier and the man from Alice’s memories, manifests in Oz’s body. Sensing Oz’s resultant inner turmoil, Uncle Oscar drags Oz and company on a “mission” to Lutwidge Academy, where Oz’s little sister, Ada, is a student. But some carefree fun and a tearful reunion ten years in the making is not all for which Oz must prepare himself: crimson-cloaked foes are lying in wait to torture him for answers about the events of a hundred years ago…

*Beware of minor spoilers

My thoughts: A smile grew on my face when I realized that the girl on the cover shared my name 🙂 Her personality seems a bit unstable but I love crazy characters so no complaints from me. Oh, and look a there is a stuffed black rabbit on the cover…and Lottie is choking it with a chain. Nice.

I enjoyed reading the beginning of this volume because we get to learn more about Break and how he became the person he was today. There are still some questions about his past but there are some answers which satisfied me. I loved the scene with Sharon beating Break with a pillow for sacrificing the thing he has been looking for so long in order to save her. It made me laugh and it shows how much Break really cares for Sharon.

I hope that Echo grows into something more than Vincent’s puppet. She is showing some signs of independence so I have high hopes.

I was a bit turned off when I found out that an academy was going to be the main setting in those volume. It worked really well though. We got introduced to two new characters: Elliot and Leo (called Reo in some translations) and we are also introduced to one kind of new character: the older Ada. There is also an encounter with the Baskervilles! I loved how Elliot and Oz fought a lot and yet they also help each other. The argument Oz and Elliot have after Elliot spoils Oz’s favorite book series was hilarious.

Oz’s tendency to sacrifice himself for others is focused on a lot in this volume which I really appreciate. The way Jun Mochizuki uses the book series Oz (and Elliot) loves to represent that tendency was really clever and amazing.

The Baskervilles were pretty awesome if I do say so myself. Even though they don’t do much damage in this specific volume you can tell that they are dangerous. Lottie is my favorite Baskerville 😀 Jack appears at the end!

The art is still pretty.

Volume six was awesome which is to be expected of Jun Mochizuki. I think it is impossible for her not to be brilliant. Now time for the next (probably awesome) volume.

Pandora Hearts Vol.5 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, Vol. 5Pandora Hearts Volume 5 by Jun Mochizuki

Series: Pandora Hearts #5

My rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Genre: Shounen, Fantasy, Paranormal, Mystery

Publisher: Yen Press(English)

Synopsis: Guided by Jack Vessalius, the man from Alice’s memories, Oz wanders back into the world of lost memories in search of Alice. There, he stumbles upon the devastating tragedy of Sablier, the century-old disaster which sent the old capital into the Abyss, an incident of which no one has any recollection…except Alice, who was there?! When Oz discovers the truth of the memories Alice so desperately wants to forget, the powers of the B-Rabbit will spiral out of control and threaten the lives of all who are trapped within the dreamlike dimension, including Alice herself…

Warning: This review might have spoilers for the previous volumes and this one because I find it hard to review mangas so the reviews will turn out more summa. Read the review for volume one here.

My Thoughts: We have Vincent on the cover! The scissors in the background really suit him. (He likes the shred stuff especially stuffed rabbits.) I notice that in all the past covers the characters always chained in some way… Vincent isn’t.

This volume is a continuation of the last volume. In the beginning of the volume Oz is wandering around Alice’s memories(which are all twisted up in the dimension) and he stumbles upon a character we know going crazy. And I mean psychopathic breakdown crazy. With scissors. Oz was able to put two and two together and realizes something about the brothers, Gilbert and Vincent and if we didn’t need anymore proof we get a scene with Jack talking to Gilbert as if he knew him. And right after that Oz finds a horrific piece of information about Alice. This all happens IN ONE CHAPTER! This chapter was pretty bloody compared to all the other chapters before it. It is still drawn well but it had more of a bloody creepy feel then a pretty creepy feel. I bet that made no sense.

In the next chapter Oz’s incuse* turns forward he starts to go a little crazy also and breaking down the dimension to. Then it cuts back to Jack’s conversation with Gilbert with Jack telling Gilbert to go and help Oz. Then it cuts to Break’s fight with Cheshire Cat. Break says some things that give us a teeny bit more information about him awhile he proceeds to cut down Cheshire. I thought the parts of the battle we get to see were drawn very well and I knew what was going on without having to reread the page multiple times. Then it cuts to another scene with Gilbert breaking Oz out of his trance and reminding him they came here to save Alice. Oz does save Alice in a very awesome and sweet way. This was my favorite part of the whole volume. Alice seemed very vulnerable in this scene(and no Alice is not a damsel in distress she is actually very kick butt). We then get to see the conclusion to the fight between Break and Cheshire and then Alice and Oz escape the dimension…Yay! But wait a minute…Gilbert and Break were left behind!

I loved this scene because of how well the art was when the dimension was breaking. The cracking rock and Cheshire Cat’s shadow like true form made the scene very action filled and suspenseful.

In the second half of the volume Alice and Oz fall into the middle of a Pandora meeting which causes a bit of an uproar. Reim (he is called Liam in some other translations) is panicking about he is going to hide Oz and a gigantic rabbit and is ambushed by Break who escaped with Gilbert by using Gilbert’s contract, Raven. Yay!

I really like Reim. He is so panicky and stressed out in such a comical way. It doesn’t help that Break is always pushing his own work on him. Their friendship is kind of funny.

We also get to learn more about Jack’s possession of Oz and also that Vincent is plotting something in the second half. My favorite part about this volume though was seeing Break’s dedication to Sharon. We see that Break really cares for her and would do anything for her. He sees her as a daughter. It is really sweet and I really hope that we get to see more of this side of Break. I really hope so. Break is my favorite character so far. (Although I love all the other characters to bits.) He makes me fangirl like crazy.

There is also a part where Break invites Oz for a tea party(he is based on the Mad Hatter so the tea party make sense)…to get more information. Break makes a deal with Oz saying that if Oz answers his questions he will answer any of Oz’s questions. After Oz is done answering and starts questioning this is Break’s answer: “I’m not telling yoooou!”

This volume was a absolutely stunning one and is my favorite one so far. The answers and questions we are given are pretty hard to figure out. Jun Mochizuki has such tight writing and the way the manga transitions between each volume is well done to. I have also noticed that there are no story arcs. The story is so complex there is no real need to have them. She really knows what she is doing.

Pandora Hearts Vol.4 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, #4Pandora Hearts Volume 4 by Jun Mochizuki

Genre: Shounen, Paranormal, Mystery, Fantasy

Series: Pandora Hearts #4

Publisher: Yen Press(English)

Synopsis: As Oz Vessalius and his valet, Gilbert, are reunited with their dear Uncle Oscar, they fail to notice an alienated Alice lost in thought stumbling right into the lurking Xerxes Break. Before Alice can take heed of Break’s warning of a trap set by the Cheshire Cat — a powerful, extraordinary chain — she and Break are spirited away to Cheshire’s lair, where both danger and fragments of Alice’s past reside. With Sharon’s help, Oz and Gil find a way to enter the sealed dimension of memories, but not only do their allies await them there, so too does the man from Alice’s earlier memory! Does he hold the key to the truth about Oz’s “sin”

Warning: This review might have minor spoilers for the previous volumes and this one because I find it hard to review mangas. Read the review for volume one here.

In volume four of Pandora Hearts we get some questions answered…and some more questions. Jun Mochizuki, do you like doing this to my mind? Oh, and look at that cover. Sharon looks so very lovely…

We get to see some pretty awesome things in this volume. The big three(Oz, Gil, and Alice) and Break are spirited away into another dimension! This is not the Abyss but a completely separate one controlled by the Cheshire Cat.  The dimension is surreal, creepy, and beautifully drawn. When in the dimension we get to see some of Alice’s memories. The Cheshire Cat was awesome! The things he did to protect Alice’s memories was a bit touching really. Cheshire Cat’s eye is a but similar to Break’s eye…We are also properly introduced to a character that has been appearing for quite a while now but we never get to see his face or learn his name. The man’s name is Jack and he looks a lot like the adult form of Oz. He also very calm even with all the things that are happening. Maybe he is crazy or maybe he knows more than he is letting on or maybe he is a bit of both. Jack is drawn very well and he is the most handsome character so far. His outfit is amazing!

Mochizuki also reveals the chains that Break, Sharon, and Vincent have. The chains are both brilliantly drawn and have a creepy vibe to them. Break’s chain is insanely awesome. His chain is The Mad Hatter who can destroy all other chains but it also kills Break inside to.

We get a bit more of Vincent in this volume and I am getting the feeling he is going to be a yandere. Now let’s talk about Gil. In this volume we learn this: Gil can be kick ass but he is also weak and pathetic at times. He lost an arm wrestling game because he didn’t want to hurt Uncle Oscar! When he knew that if he lost the match his precious hat would be taken away! Thankfully, Alice saved the day by mocking and provoking a big dude and then beating him with her powers at the very last second. I like Uncle Oscar. He makes Gil and Oz happy when he is around him and he is very funny.

There are even a very heart warming scene with Alice and Oz! Alice asked what was bothering Oz(who is very depressed but won’t show it) and tried to comfort him. Awhile holding down a mouse she was going to eat. Very cute scene.

The volume ends on a big cliffhanger with Alice drowning into the darkness and Break having an epic battle with the Cheshire Cat. Again, there are clues everywhere. Even one panel might hold a clue.

Pandora Hearts Vol.3 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, #3\

Pandora Hearts Vol.3 by Jun Mochizuki

Series: Pandora Hearts #3

Genre: Shounen, Paranormal, Mystery, Fantasy

Publisher: Yen Press(English)

Synopsis: Having returned from the infernal Abyss only to find his whole world changed, young “sinner” Oz Vessalius embarks on an attempt at normalcy after being reunited with his best friend and valet, Gilbert, whom he had presumed dead. But during a trip into town with Gil and Alice, an unexpected encounter leads Oz down memory lane…For Oz, however, the path is one covered with the most menacing of thorns. And lying in wait to assail him there…The baleful eye of his father and the echoes of cursed words Oz would much rather forget…

Mochizuki…you never disappoint. In this volume of Pandora Hearts we get to learn more about Oz’s relationship with his dad. Actually, now that I think about it this whole volume is dedicated to looking at how twisted a family can be… There are some really sweet parts in this volume that I love rereading because they make me smile and then there are some really…creepy parts that I love rereading because they just give me the chills.

The third volume of Pandora Hearts focuses more on Alice, Gil, and Oz. (I call them the big three.) We get to learn more about how Gil grew up looking for Oz and became the person called Raven Nightray and we get to learn about Oz’s twisted and horrible relationship with his dad. Alice has a scene where she acts really kick butt(I loved that scene). Philippe is a character I feel really sorry for. His family went from being a wealthy family to a very poor family and his mother had dies. His father is barely there and when we find out what he was doing the whole time he was away was just… awful. Philippe’s dad really shows how twisted a family can get even when they love each other. We are also introduced to two new characters! We get to meet Vincent Nightray and Echo. Vincent is Gil’s blood related brother as they were both adopted in the Nightray family just at different times. I really liked the scene where Vincent is first meeting Gil after a very long time-if you looked closely you will notice some shredded stuffed animals around the room. I got really interested in learning more about Vincent after I read that part. Echo is Vincent’s servant. We do see her briefly at the end of the second volume but only for a couple of pages. I loved reading her about her. She is very cute in a weird way… She is seemingly emotionless most of the time but I feel that there is more to her character. There is also a mysterious person who shows up in Alice’s memories quite a lot and he makes another appearance in here! Oh, you see that guy on the cover? That is Xerxes Break and let me just say that he is kick butt, awesome, creepy, and funny all at the same time. He got a bit more spotlight in this volume and I loved all the scenes that he was in. I think he is a perfect fit for the Alice in Wonderland character he is based on of(He is believed to be a mixture of the Mad Hatter and the White Knight). There are many questions about him I would like to find out about. Break also can’t use a door apparently. He will go under a table or inside a cabinet and then disappear to a totally different location. And the puppet on his shoulder is called Emily if you are wondering about that.

This volume is about the past of the characters and how they became the way they are at the present. There is a awesome fight scene but that is not the focus of this volume at all. Volume three was all about character development. We get to see a lot of scenes from the past which are very entertaining, mysterious, and enjoyable to read. There is also a really cute scene with Alice and Oz. Oz was feeling lonely and Alice was trying to comfort him….in a really Alice kind of way. It was very cute, sweet, and funny.

Jun Mochizuki is a master at everything and all things writing and drawing but what I am really impressed with is her foreshadowing. She leaves clues everywhere but just in spots that you do not think of looking. A piece of dialougue will give you a small clue if you pay attention and there is a lot of foreshadowing in the art. If you pay attention to Alice’s memories and what dialougue is in the memories and the artwork you will probably find a clue. Oh, and the mysterious person that we do not know the face off. Pay attention to him. Pay close attention. The artwork is beautiful and amazing as always. I have come to expect great art from Jun Mochizuki and she never disapoints. Ever.

Volume three of Pandora Hearts is a great volume with tons of character development and a whole lot of awesome.

Pandora Hearts Vol.2 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, Vol. 2

Title: Pandora Hearts Vol.2

Author: Jun Mochizuki

Series: Pandora Hearts #2

Genre: Shounen, Mystery, Paranormal, Fantasy

Publisher: Yen Press(English)

Synopsis: Oz Vessalius may have survived his stint in the Abyss, but he is no closer to discovering the truth behind the “sin” for which he was condemned. On the advice of a mysterious man who appeared to him when Alice regained the first of her memories, Oz, along with Alice and Pandora’s Raven, embarks on a mission to investigate the site of his disastrous coming-of-age ceremony in search of answers. However, what begins as a simple investigation becomes the revelation of a harsher reality, which comes swooping down on Oz as the hands of the clock continue ticking away mercilessly…

Note: There may be minor spoilers for this volume and the volumes before it. Read the review for volume 1 here.

The second volume of Pandora Hearts blows the first one completely out of the water. Volume two has a lot more substance and darkness than volume one. I enjoyed this one a lot.

Again, the characters are marvelous, amazing, great, fantastic, hilarious….I think you get the point. This volume focuses on the characters Raven, Oz, and Alice which is very awesome as they are hilarious together. Raven does not like Alice and Alice does not like Raven and they fight and Oz kind of just smiles all happy-go-lucky which gets Alice a bit irritated. The way they interact with each other is just hilarious. In this volume Oz learns about how serious having a contract with Alice really is and there are going to be horrible consequences if they do not find out how to nullify the contract. We also get to learn something very important about Raven. The way he got to see the person he cared a lot for again was very sweet but a little sad at the same time. The Will of the Abyss gets her own brief scene in this volume! She was very creepy and I loved it! I am excited for future scenes with her. Of course, we also get a few scenes with Break and Sharon who are both also really funny. Break makes some vague remarks but they seem to foreshadow something…or he could just be trolling.

The first volume of Pandora Hearts was more of a set up for the story but in this volume things really take off! Secrets are being revealed, answers are given, and then more questions are showing up. There is also a little tid bit where we get a glimpse of Alice’s memories! I am really impressed with the complex story Mochizuki has created and it seems to be getting more complex as I read through more and more chapters!

Again, I love the way Jun Mochizuki draws…It seems to me she is getting better! The lines are crisp and very clear. The art can be cute and beautiful but also creepy

The second volume of Pandora Hearts does not disappoint! The story is getting more complex and mysterious and I am excited to read and review the future volumes…

Pandora Hearts Vol.1 by Jun Mochizuki: review

Pandora Hearts, Vol. 1 (Pandora Hearts, #1)

Title: Pandora Hearts Vol.1

Author: Jun Mochizuki

Series: Pandora Hearts #1

Genre: Shounen, Paranormal, Fantasy, Mystery

Publisher: Yen Press(English)

Synopsis: The air of celebration surrounding fifteen-year-old Oz Vessaliuss coming-of-age ceremony quickly turns to horror when he is condemned for a sin about which he know nothing. Thrown into the Abyss – an eternal prison from which here is no escape – Oz meets a young girl named Alice who is not what she seems. Now that the relentless cogs of fate have begun to turn, will they lead only to crushing despair for Oz, or will Alice provide him with some shred of hope?

I think you should all know that Jun Mochizuki is a genius. I have been reading Pandora Hearts for a while now and my mind has been exploding at least ounce every volume I read of this manga.

The characters in Pandora Hearts are characters like no other. You would think that with all the very contrasting personalities they would clash with each other too much but they actually fit very well together. Actually they are quite hilarious! We have one kid who just goes with the flow to a guy who is always smiling and talking to a puppet. The personalities melt together to make the one of the best set of characters in a manga series. Almost all the characters have some kind of secret. Oh, and these characters are only a fraction of all the awesome characters, there are some that are not introduced yet. Oz starts off pretty well as a protagonist. Actually he acts a lot like Alice from Alice in Wonderland-which this manga series is based off- just going with the flow with all the craziness. Alice also known as the B-Rabbit(B stands for Bloody and Black) is a very mysterious character. The fact that she does not even remember anything about her past just adds on to the mystery behind her. The other characters-Break, Sharon, Gil, and Raven also have a good start in this volume. The Baskervilles, the villains are the dark and mysterious kind of villains. The Chains(the creatures that are born in the abyss) are just creepy. I actually jumped a few times because I would be turning a page and than see a picture of a some creepy monster.

The story of Pandora Hearts is based on Alice in Wonderland. Now do not be afraid that this is just some stupid rip-off because Pandora Hearts is original and unique. The only similarities between the two titles are the names and some very vague referencing-and when I say vague I mean so vague that you will probably have to be a Alice in Wonderland fanatic like me in order to find all of them. The story is complex, mysterious, and dark. Many questions pop up in the first volume: Who is Alice? What is the Abyss and who is the Intention of the Abyss? Just this volume gives us a bucket-load of questions!

The art is just FANTASTIC! Mochizuki makes art like a Mangaka God. Mochizuki puts a lot of detail in her art amd draws very beautifully! I actually picked up this manga because of the pretty art and title on the cover made me think it was a cute manga. Yeah….right…. The art IS pretty but it can also be creepy to. The characters designs are as awesome and unique. If you do not like the story of Pandora Hearts-and I swear you will- you can at least just flip through the pages and look at all the super pretty art.

The first volume of Pandora Hearts gave the series a pretty solid start but the first volume is nothing like the awesomeness that followd after it. Prepare to have your mind blown multiple times. Mochizuki is known for being a troll with all her awesome plot twist.

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan: review

Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)

Unspoken: The Lynburg Legacy by Sarah Rees Brennan

Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.

But all that changes when the Lynburns return.

The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?

Ah, I think I am in love! Unspoken is a brilliant, mysterious, and captivating novel that had me wide-eyed in awe. Unspoken is a great story and I enjoyed reading every word of it.

The best part of Unspoken is probably it’s characters which are nothing short of exceptional. All the characters are unique, witty, and flawed but strong which are everything I look for in great characters. The one character that shined the brightest of them all was Kami. She is smart, brave, witty, quirky, weird, and a bit strange and I loved her to bits. She is everything I look for in a strong female character and more. I really enjoyed reading about Kami and her struggles and found myself caring greatly for her. Jared, is also a great character. He was deeply flawed but tries hard to protect the people he loves. Jared is a great character and I was cheering for him through the whole book. The rest of the characters: Angela, Holly, Ash, and the Lynburns are very great characters and fit very well with the atmosphere and the story. The characters are definitely a big reason to read this book.

The story of Unspoken is unique and a joy to read. The story flows nicely and is very exciting. Unspoken is a bit slow but I thought that was for the best as it gave you more time to absorb what was happening. The murder mystery was very interesting and the plot twist were very surprising. I loved learning more about the Lynburns and finding more about the Sorry-in-th-Vale’s past. The ending was very awesome but was also a cliffhanger that left me with my mouth open.

The writing was beautiful. Brennan’s writing is filled with humour, wit, and great prose. The dialogue was absolutely perfect! There was humour and seriousness all rolled into one. I was never bored with the writing and always had a clear picture of what was happening in my head.

Unspoken is a beautiful story that I would recommend to anyone. I will be waiting for the next book with great excitement and lot’s of staring at the calendar.

I give Unspoken 5 out of 5 Stars
