Author has written 4 stories for Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service.
I am really more of an artist than an author, so here be links. Hooray for shameless self-promotion.
I'm 20-ish, British (English), at university doing Archaeology and Classical Studies, 'cause I'm just that exciting.
Not that you really care, I'm just writing that because it makes it sound as though I have a life.
I really love Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service right now, and since it's such a plot-heavy manga I think it's fun to read stuff that focuses on characters, like Volume 9's "My Sadness" which I love and not just because it sounds like it could be an episode of Scrubs.
In terms of books without pictures (which I occasionally read) I love Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the Power of Five series by Anthony Horowitz, the Johannes Cabal series, by Jonathan L. Howard, and A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon. I also love the Odyssey and the Aeneid, but I'm not sure whether that makes me sound pretentious or not... Is that even the right word?
