Aside from drawing, reading are one of my hobbies. Newspapers, books, magazines...I'll read anything if it can alleviate my boredom.One of my hated things is useless waiting; if 'm forced to, I'd usually bring a book, playing my handheld consoles, or just listening to music from my cellphone. But most of the times, the books that i read are the paranormal ones; ones that deals with ghosts, demons, or anything along that line. The last novel i read that is not a horror ones is Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.

"From Peon to Badass"
In my latest read, Re:Monster, it brings that RPG feeling into a novel; the main character, Tomokui Kanata has been re-incarnated in the weakest goblin, named Rou, after having undergone an unfortunate death. However goblin Rou has retained his previous life's memories, an unusual evolution, as well as becoming strong enough to gain status boosts from eating...That's right. It has experience levels, skill progressions, jobs and classes, anything that usual exist in games. Oh and there are harems, too.

"Comrades and wenches"

A first person view of narration told in a diary style. Instead of chapters, it's divided into days, recounting Rou's experience from the moment he was reborn as a baby goblin to the latest days (i wont spoil it for you!). Though, i must warn you that this novel is rated M, due to, well...there are rapes, killing, blood, cannibalism, and the 'horizontal push-ups' on the later chapters.

It's still in Japanese though, so unless you can read it, you'll have to stick to the fan translations of the novel. Here's the link : Re:Monster Google Doc's Translations
