Shadow Study by Maria V. Snyder 410 pages
So this is number four in the Chronicles of Ixia series and it reads a bit different than the first three but that may be because it has been a bit of a wait for it. It is still an excellent series but I absolutely HATE when a book ends with a huge surprise that catches you off guard!

Voice Over vol. 1 by Maki Minami pages 208 (teen)
I think this would be more interesting as an anime so you can actually hear the voices the manga-ka had in their mind when they were writing it. Other than that it sounds like a typical bottom of the dog pile story.

It's a cute reverse harem. Father is SUPER CREEPY!! Some bits are a little hard to follow but you get the general idea of what is supposed to be happening and what has happened. I'm looking forward to the next volume.
