Waiting on Wednesday - Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 18

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

On Savvy Book Reviews, I'll be showcasing books that we'll be adding soon to the library!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Ouran High School Host Club, Vol. 18 (Ouran High School Host Club #18)
by Bisco Hatori
Publication Date: June 5, 2012

From Goodreads:
Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for audiences rated teen. In this screwball romantic comedy, Haruhi, a poor girl at a rich kids' school, is forced to repay an $80,000 debt by working for the school's swankiest, all-male club--as a boy! There, she discovers just how wealthy the six members are and how different the rich are from everybody else... Final Volume!

This is the final volume in the Host Club manga series. This series was originally published in 2003, so this volume was a long time in coming! If you're a fan of this series, be sure to check out this volume when it comes to the library in June! If manga is new to you, or just this series, it's a fun read! Or you can check out the anime version (currently available on Netflix). While many of the anime episodes are based on the manga stories, there are some differences, particularly in the final episode (since there were still more manga volumes being written). Either way you do it, the story is at times funny, silly, heart warming, and heart breaking, but if you're anything like me, you'll be hooked!

Update: We have volume 18! See my full review of the series HERE.

  1. Excellent review - now I'm hooked! I will check this one out for sure. You might also like Neil Shulman and Susan Wrathall's new one out entitled, The Corporate Kid, which is a humorous rags to riches story about two very different characters - one is from the poor side of town and the other is a powerful CEO, whose lives become intertwined after an accident. The writers show how human trials and tribulations transcend social identity. I really enjoyed this one. You can find the book here:
