12 Days of Giveaways – Day 8: For the Manga Lover

Today we’re giving away something a little different from the normal genres we’ve featured over the last week. Manga is broadly classified as comics created in Japan, and their subjects can vary widely. Through my work in a bookstore I’ve seen firsthand the rise in Manga popularity. This particular giveaway is the Happy Marriage!? romantic comedy series that depicts the life of a 23-year-old woman who is forced into an arranged marriage with a businessman in order to pay off a family debt. Whether you’re a seasoned Manga reader or you’ve never given it a try, look below the blurb to find out how to enter the giveaway. Good luck!

  1. I have really learned to enjoy manga for certain days. I also like anime and some yaori. I also enjoy some mixed types like Fun Home and Roz Chastain’s great book about her aging parents. Certainly different from what I usually read. But I enjoy it as an adjunct to my regular reading of fiction, thrillers, mysteries, etc.

  2. I’ve never heard of, let alone read a Manga series, but I did just look up a bunch and one that looks interesting is The Honor Student of Magic High. I’ll have to broaden my reading horizon and actually check it out.

We'd love to discuss this post with you. Drop us a line!
