Five Webtoons To Read This Valentine’s Day

While I didn’t set any official goals for myself this year since I didn’t want to pressure myself, especially with my burn-out, I did decide that this year I want to blog more about Webtoons, because I really want to share them with you since they’re amazing and have become such a big part of my life these past few years. I have at least one Webtoon to read each day of the week, which on my not so great days have been such a help. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I figured: why not talk about some more romance heavy Webtoons? Some of these are more romance focused than others, but there is a romance that’s central to the plot.

IMPORTANT: Please read Webtoons on either the website or the app. This is entirely free for you, but supports the artists as Webtoon pays them per view etc.

Always Human

Set in a future with very advanced technology, Always Human follows Sunati and Austen as they fall in love. Always Human covers important topics like beauty standards and academic pressure, but mostly it’s about Sunati and Austen’s relationship, which is beautifully written. I loved seeing how both of them grew, both outside and inside the relationship, and how they slowly became more and more comfortable with each other.

ALSO! Always Human is completed, so you can binge it!

#Blessed

blessed-banner-mobile2_1_

Disaster Bi™ swipes right on a bunch of Gods and Goddesses and now finds herself bound to a contract and a prophecy. Which God or Goddess will win her heart?

When #Blessed was first added to Webtoon it sounded like a fun read, but I had NO IDEA Joanna was bi so imagine how much my heart fluttered when there were flashbacks to her previous disastrous dates and!! She had dates with girls too!! Joanna is the ultimate Disaster Bi™ and I love her so much. At first she’s not happy at all to have all these Gods and Goddesses show up and make a mess of her life, but she soon comes to love all of them and honestly I really hope there’ll be a polyamorous ending because I love all of them?

My Giant Nerd Boyfriend

My Giant Nerd Boyfriend is a slice of life comic, following tiny Fishball and – as the title suggests – her Giant Nerd Boyfriend. I’m not that big on slice of life comics* but gosh My Giant Nerd Boyfriend is just so cute and funny and absolute relationship goals?? Fishball also shows the downs of the relationship, but they always work through their problems.

* I say while I read three

Super Secret

Super Secret more like super cute. Super Secret follows Emma and Ryan, neighbours and best friends since they were little, although Emma has no idea that Ryan and his family are actually supernatural beings. While I called it ‘super cute’, that’s mostly in the beginning. There’s more angst later on in the comic but it’s still funny and adorable. Emma is so clueless whereas Ryan is the Mom Friend™ we all need. There are also many loveable and unique side characters.

Big Jo

Big Jo is still on hiatus as I’m typing it and I really hope it will come back soon as it was supposed to come back in January please I miss my kids

God I love Big Jo so much. Jo is such an icon, not caring what people think of her. She does have some problems with how she sees her body at the start of the comic, but she has this beautiful realisation that she is beautiful and becomes 1000000x more confident and it’s awesome. I also love how the comic showed that fat =/= unhealthy. Honestly Big Jo is the body positivity comic we deserve. Big Jo will leave you with warm feelings and laughing out loud.

Also: more Bi Disasters™!! Jo herself is one (a possible female love interest popped up at the end of season 1 and?? I’m screaming?? THEY’RE GOING ON A DATE??) and so is the male lead, though he’s more of a Disaster™ than Jo is ksdgjgh legit he pretty much kisses EVERYONE* in a panic like??

Also there’s a butch janitor who’s dating a femme teacher who are legit goals and an English teacher who is 100% based on Tom Hiddleston which is super funny and he’s engaged to the cutest cinnamon and so many more amazing characters

* Just to clarify this is an exaggeration you’ll see what I mean when you read the scene

I have some more Webtoons to recommend, so hopefully I’ll do a part two soon? If I don’t get to it before Valentine’s Day I’ll just do it after

Do you read any Webtoons? Maybe one of these? Which ones are your favourites? If you don’t read any Webtoons: do you have a favourite comic or graphic novel? Let me know in the comments!

The Monthly Hufflepuff: March

Hey guys! Don’t worry nothing in this post is an April Fools’ joke haha. I was very tempted to change it to ‘the monthly lime’, but I’m too lazy to change this banner as well haha. If you’re wondering where the lime came from: Angel said she wanted to prank a lot of people and Elly had been sending that lime picture in my banner in pretty much all the group chats so we had the idea to all change our icons to it. Which led to us changing our Twitter names, the group chats names, quite a few tweets and the name change of both this blog and The Feministas‘ blog. And now the others in our group chats are very confused haha. JOIN THE LIMES GUYS. Seriously this craziness is why I love you guys so much <3

  • Liar Game volumes 1-9 –  I watched the Japanese drama a few years ago and loved it, so decided to give the manga a go. I like it so far!
  • Cress by Marissa Meyer  (reread) ★★★★★

Since January I’ve also started some Webtoon comics. This month I’ve been keeping up with I Don’t Want This Kind of Hero, Jackie Rose and As Per Usual and started Cheese in the Trap, Supersonic Girl, Space boy and Shoot Around. I recommend all of these, but especially Shoot Around which I’ll do a post on soon. It’s definitely my favourite Webtoon so far, closely followed by I Don’t Want This Kind of Hero and Cheese in the Trap.

personal

Phew, it’s been awhile so there’s quite a lot! Let’s see if I remember everything

Needless to say, I’ve been very busy with school. I haven’t gotten back all my grades yet, but I’ve at least passed one of my subjects from this term with flying colours!

Last week I went to Dutch Comic Con, which I’ll blog about somewhere this week!

I’ve been binge-watching Liv and Maddie (I was studying and working on assignments, I swear haha. But I can’t concentrate later in the evening so that’s how I spent my evenings)

I went to a sale at a bookstore today, but they barely had any English books and I wasn’t interested in the ones they did have. So I went to my usual bookstore where I always get a 10 percent discount with my student ID haha. I really need to finish the Miss Peregrine’s trilogy and the Shatter Me trilogy this month before YALFest

While on my way to my usual bookstore, I stumbled upon a book market. I didn’t find any books, but I did find my mom a print from an old Vogue Magazine cover. I found two that I thought my mom would like, but I wasn’t sure so I tried to reach her and a friend (I’ve mentioned him before; I’ve known him pretty much all my life and he’s like my brother) since he would know which one she’d like better, but it took a while so I awkwardly stood there and at some point I heard the seller mention me to somebody else… Eventually I reached my friend and he told me to go with the one I already preferred haha. I guess I just should’ve listened to my instincts (though when I showed my mom the picture later she said she liked both so it wouldn’t have mattered…

I also got a We Heart It account, since I had to avoid Pinterest for Shadowhunters spoilers (just because I’ve read the books doesn’t mean I can’t get spoiled!) and Miitomo. If you’ve got the app as well, you should be able to add me if I follow you on Twitter (at least I think that’s how it works? I’m not sure haha). It’s cute and funny, but also quite frustrating. You can win items through these games, one of which is a little cat for on your shoulder. I won my mom one in ONE GO. I still haven’t managed to win one for myself and I don’t have any tickets or coins to play again (yes I wasted all my coins on the game haha). I did get two cat jumpers, cat shoes and cat tights. Oh and let me know if you have We Heart It so I can follow you!

Woo that’s a lot. And I feel like I’ve forgotten something… Oh well.

what I posted-2

Sadly I wasn’t able to post much this month.

nextmonth

I have this next week off, so I should be able to relax but also get back into blogging, which I’m really excited about! My schedule for this term is pretty full, but I’ll make it work. YALFest is at the end of this month, which I’m really looking forward to! Though it also stresses me out that I haven’t finished my challenge yet, since I’m afraid I’ll get spoiled for one of the books if I don’t read them before that! But most of all: THE ACE ATTORNEY ANIME PREMIERS THIS WEEKEND. Which also means that this weekend I’ll finally do that post in which I try to convince you guys to play the games. I wanted to do it before the anime airs, but school got in the way of that. Anyway, I can’t wait until the episode is out (and subbed haha).

So how was your month?! I’ve missed so much, so I’ll be busy catching up this week! Most important question though: are you a lime yet? (I’m sorry I’ll stop now)
