I Want to Be a Wall volume 1 - Heard a lot of good things about this one but hadn't expected it to be such a sweet slice of life! Very intrigued to find out how and why these two characters got married given Volume 1 doesn't explain that. The artwork is great and I love how the two interact with one another while dealing with their respective problems. I just wish there was more of it right now because it's clear we've barely scratched the surface of their stories.

Volume 1 of Skip-Beat! :)
Awesome! Still in volume 1 myself too.

I feel like Kyoko is a good cautionary tale to teenagers these days. She wants an education because she was denied one...she's working to pay back others for their kindness and to improve herself, and so she realized that she has to put HER life first before anyone else...boys, parents, other girls.

Great expectations for SB!:)

I requested this from Diamond to review but, alas, it still hasn't turned up so far - but it's good to know that it'll be an enjoyable read. :) (At least I Cannot Reach You #4 arrived!)

My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Girls Patch (complete) - A fun but unsubstantial anthology for the villainess series here. I think it made a lot more sense before we reached the point the LNs are currently at where Katarina is beginning to work through her feelings for everyone.

Ascendance of a Bookworm volume 19 (LN)
Slayers volume 13 (LN)

The Untouchable Midori-kun volume 1 - Unconveined I'll carry on with this one. The set-up is decent but I find the characters annoying and the art isn't good enough for me to be able to look past that, especially when Kodansha regularly put out so many romance titles digitally now.

Sensei's Pious Lie volume 2 - Another heavy and difficult read. On the one hand, I'm glad Vertical are putting these out in an omnibus format because it means the story does move from volume to volume, but on the other hand, I felt like way less happened this time around than in Vol 1. But I suppose that's what happens when you're trying to carry so many messed up and complicated relationships...

Piano Duo for the Left Hand volume 3 - Still incredibly silly, but somehow I find myself compelled to come back for more. I suppose it has that typical shounen make-up that however ridiculous the plot may be the characters hold a certain charm.

I requested this from Diamond to review but, alas, it still hasn't turned up so far - but it's good to know that it'll be an enjoyable read. :) (At least I Cannot Reach You #4 arrived!)

I certainly hope your copy turns up soon, I'm eager to see how you'll review it and hope you'll enjoy reading it. :)
