Readathon: Emma (vol 1), by Kaoru Mori

emma-coverHistorical fiction, London. Emma is a maid for a retired governess. She is beautiful, but either unconscious of that beauty, or unwilling to flaunt it, despite multiple suitors. She does, however, begin to fall for William Jones, a rich young man once under the governess’ care.

I’m not a big fan of historical fiction, I have never read a manga that I liked, and have recently not read many graphic novels that I liked either, but I saw this one sitting on my bookshelf during Readathon, and thought I might as well give it a chance. I’m glad I did, because I just found my first-ever liked manga! This was really cute, and my only complaint was that it ended too abruptly. I knew this was a long series, but I didn’t realize that “series” meant no real end to the story. It’s not like it ended on a cliffhanger, or at the end of something – it ended right in the middle, with no closure at all! And I don’t have the second volume to read! My library doesn’t carry this series. Annoying. I need to read on, so I think I’ll have to spend an afternoon at Barnes & Nobles, sifting through the volumes there…
