Waiting on Wednesday: Otomen Vol. 17

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

This Wednesday I'm Waiting on: Otomen Vol. 17 by Aya Kanno

Asuka Masamune is a guy who loves girly things--sewing, knitting, making cute stuffed animals and reading shojo comics. But in a world where boys are expected to act manly, Asuka must hide his beloved hobbies and play the part of a masculine jock instead. Can Asuka ever show his true self to anyone, much less to Ryo Miyakozuka, the girl that he's falling for?

In her quest to get Asuka to turn away from his otomen ways, Asuka's mom, Kiyomi, cancels his favorite shojo manga, Love Chick! What's worse, she plans to break up Asuka and Ryo! Will Asuka succumb to his mother's anti-otomen schemes?!

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for teen audiences.

This series is hilarious! Yes, it may sound really weird. It is. But that does not make it any less enjoyable! This is the second to last volume, if I'm right. Which makes me very sad that it is almost over. But I still have two more books to read before that happens, and I'm looking forward to seeing how it is all wrapped up!

This book will be released January 7th 2014
