Married by Mistake! by Takako Hashimoto

When I started this manga, I felt like I was missing something... and it turns out I was. The first book! Even though this manga book isn't part of a numbered series, it seems like it's the sequel to TO MARRY A STRANGER, so I'd recommend reading that first if you're interested in reading these books. I'm not sure why you would want to do that, though, as I personally thought the story was very dumb. I guess it revolves around this place called the "Love Mansion" where, as rumor has it, if you're unmarried and stay there on your birthday, the next man you meet is going to be your one true love. I bet the women who stay there get married to a lot of pizza delivery guys and Uber drivers.

Lucy has been jilted by her fiance and so to make him jealous, she pretends to be engaged to her childhood friend, who's secretly loved her for hers. What follows is like 100+ pages of drama with both of them being trash people who can't communicate and a stupid ending that made me very unhappy. I wasn't a fan of this book at all and shan't be reading any more adaptions of this author's work if I can help it. Also-- the dog talks! Whaaaaaaat?

No hate to the manga artist, though. She did the best she could with the source material and the art was honestly one of the best things about this "romance."
