Not My Cup of Tea
Dec 13, 2008 by Keru
I bought volume one of this series on a recommendation from a friend, and unfortunately, found out after the fact that it wasn't for me. On the plus side: the art is beautiful, and the characters were entertaining while remaining fairly realistic. At some point or another, I even found myself identifying with one of the two main leads.
So why am I stopping after book one? Honestly, it's the content. Yes, I knew it was rated older teen, and that's on the back of the book for a reason, but personally, I found a lot of the content unnecessary, and while it added nothing, it detracted from the story for me.
I know there are loads of people who do/will absolutely love this series. I'm just not one of them.
Keru also recommended: Paradise Kiss, Chocolat, Cynical Orange,
