Hey everyone~ While my blog is still in a state of limbo, I figured I might as well post a review I’d like to share with you all! Last year for The OASG, I reviewed a light novel series called Sexiled and oh my god. I absolutely loved it. I haven’t read that many light novels – at least compared to the copious amount of manga I’ve read – but I don’t think it’s presumptuous to say that Sexiled will always be on my favorites list. It was made of everything I love: feminism, humor, strong female characters, and even a little bit of yuri. I binge read both volumes, which is something I don’t normally do because I like taking my time when I read. But I just couldn’t put the books down. They were that good.
For the full details on what made this book series so great, please check out my review for Sexiled Volume 1 and Volume over at The OASG (link below)! Please be aware that it’s a two-person review and my review is second within the article after Helen’s. My manga reviews are usually pretty short (fewer than 1,000 words), but since I loved Sexiled so much, it’s kind of long ^.^;
My Sexiled Review:
While there are light novels I’ve enjoyed before, Sexiled has had the most impact of me so far. I find certain titles I’ve read fading from memory. But not Sexiled. Over the past few months since I read this series, I keep remembering certain parts and laughing to myself. In particular, I keep thinking about Lapace, the snarky sorceress who was my favorite character because she cracked me up constantly. I’ve even used its writing style as inspiration for a short story I wrote. If you enjoy any of the elements I mentioned earlier – feminism, yuri, etc. – or just want to read something refreshing and funny… do yourself a favor and read this light novel series! I promise you won’t regret it.

Hopefully, I will be able to write out a full, proper blog post soon. I’ve been feeling the itch to write again. In the meantime, you can check out some of my other reviews at The OASG. Most of them are yuri-related 😀
