the great yaoi swap: tam’s update (& kris’ too!)


Well, guys, I have no clue what happened to some of the other yaoi, but here’s some new stuff that’s floating around out there. If you want to be on the list to receive it (
Kris ETA: Yep, this is open to anyone, but if you reveal RL names and/or become stalkers the Book Goddesses will hunt you down and burn your entire library in front of your eyes. Just sayin’.), leave a message here with which of the books you’d like to receive and what I do is send them out in batches (or individually rather than one huge mass) with mailing labels included (I’m so freaking efficient it’s frightening at times) and once you are finished just pop it in an envelope to the next person on the list. I try to mix it up so they are traveling around the world at all different rates. If you’ve never been in the chain I’ll give you my e-mail and you can send me your snail mail address later.

I know some people are not keen on yaoi manga, but there are quite a few novels in this mix so you can request just novels or just manga or both.

Funny story: I have a pile of books I’ve received lately (Thank you Book Depository, do you always send each book in an individual envelope? How weird.) sitting on my dining room table. My Mom arrived to visit for a week and I had just kind of pushed the books aside and there were some post cards on top. So she’s waiting for her coffee to finish and she’s standing there and next thing I know she says “Hey, these are like comics!” and she’s flipping through some yaoi. Ack. “Umm, yeah, they are Japanese.” “Are they all like this?” “Well, just the manga style.” I have no clue if she realized they were all boys (hard to tell with the art) or if she flipped to any explicit parts. She didn’t comment if she did. LOL Now today she’s home by herself as I couldn’t get off work. Maybe I’ll find she’s been home reading them all day instead of doing my ironing for me. Guess, I better move those up to my bedroom. Ahem.

By the way, I haven’t read many of these as of the time of preparing this post so snarkiness on my part is in no way indicative of the quality of the books but is merely an indication of my snotty mood today. On with the show….

YAOI MANGA

Noodle Shop Affair Vol. 1

Boy in noodle shop has affair. I made that up. 😛 My revised summary: Spoiled son of Yakuza boss falls in love with noodle shop son, must later help him when rival Yakuza threaten noodle boy and his shop/family.

Already read by: Ingrid, Kris and Orannia.

Naughty but Nice Vol. 1

Boy is friendly but very naughty, likes sex. (See, my storylines are way fun.) Two stories – Boy’s homeroom teacher suddenly loses his memory thanks to kid and turns into a raging pedophile convinces boy to move in with him and help him. Man with severe flower allergy meets boy selling flowers – love ensues, along with a fair bit of snot and watering eyes.

Already read by: Ingrid and Tam and is now on route to Jenre, followed by Tracy, Kris and Orannia.

Shy Intentions

One boy is shy, one has intentions. Pretty much it. It’s really a re-telling of the story of how the shy teacher got together with the more confident carpenter. To be honest I thought it was quite romantic which I don’t find much yaoi. A lot less bullying of the shy guy but a more western style relationship developed. I quite liked it.

Golden Prince and Argent King

Self explanatory? Not really. Orphan boy is taken in by rich family with two celebrity brothers. One kind and sophisticated, one not so much. Both want orphan boy. How does it end? No clue, haven’t read it yet. Could this be a yaoi m/m/m? Do they exist? Combined with bro-cest? Hmmm. Okay, I think I’m on a tangent here. Oh and someone should explain that argent is not English for silver.

The Aristocrat and the Desert Prince

Aristocratic boy meets desert prince and hot lovin’ ensues after some borderline non-con. (Are you amazed by my title interpretation because I haven’t read this one either?) Okay, really, prince is kidnapped because he’s cute, he in turn kidnaps the snotty little aristocrat who dissed him on the plane. Revenge and sex ensue. I presume.

Our Kingdom

Two guys have a kingdom and some hot sex. The end. Wait there may be more. Orphan take in by rich family (is this sounding vaguely familiar?) is told he may become their heir. Real heir could care less about money but wants in orphan’s pants. Bad. Orphan might want that too but is confused. As per usual.

YAOI NOVELS

Better than a Dream

Boy had a dream, real sex is better. (I made that up too.) Boy owns Fuuka Café (come on, with a name like that you just KNOW there is going to be plenty of buttsecks) and mysterious stranger appears and “makes” him (How? Not sure.) hire him as live-in employee and lover it seems.

Sweet Admiration

Boy is very admirable; other boy admires him and then fucks him. Sorry – moving on. Boy somehow becomes roommates with older brother’s best friend whom he always admired (see?). Can he control is raging lust … and admiration?

Already read by: Ingrid.

Sleeping with Money

Boy turns into Scrooge McDuck and sleep with money rather than other hot boys. Fool. Ahem. Boy with money trouble looks for a Sugar Daddy and finds a bank president but can’t believe the guy wants more than sex.

Already read by: Ingrid, Kris and Orannia.

The Man who Doesn’t Take Off his Clothes Vol. 1 (& Melissa has Vol. 2 ready to go)

A story about a really stinky homeless guy. Well, maybe not homeless but he must be getting ripe. Boy works at cosmetic firm where he clashes with his hot arrogant boss over marketing. The rumour is the boss never takes off his clothes even during sex. Boy finds out truth (I’m assuming … hoping, or maybe we have to wait for Vol. 2.)

Already read by: Ingrid.

So there you have it. A lovely list of yaoi waiting for new homes when I get them finished. I have to get working on that. Leave me a message with your requests or just leave me a message to tell me not to be so bloody disrespectful to these hard working authors whose works that I haven’t even read I just mocked. Sigh. Sorry sorry, it won’t happen again … for a week at least.

ETA: Also available are –

The Guilty Vols. 1 – 3

Toya Sakurai only went into the publishing business to work with his favorite author, Kai Hodaka, one of the top-selling mystery writers of all time. And now he’s getting the chance to do exactly that! But the demands of the job are more than he ever expected.

Already read by: Melissa.

Rising Storm

Reona, a college student, works part-time at the Kaizaki family’s castle. Ruling over this castle is the young master, Kaizaki-sama. Amid chores and strict obedience, who would have thought that Kaizaki-sama’s “discipline” of Reona would lead to a Cinderfella romance?!

Already read by: Melissa.

Don’t Worry Momma

While visiting a small, deserted island for work, Yuichi and his boss find themselves left behind by mistake. They must survive until someone notices they are missing, a task made more difficult by the incompetent, spoiled boss Imakura. Though they struggle for even the basic necessities Yuichi finds his steel facade starting to crumble!

  1. Melissa says:

    Wow, your blog is really not conducive to being a lurker…I would like to join the chain and I would like to add three if possible. I have novels The Guilty vol 1-3 if anyone is interested. Actually I have a lot more in my trunk, its just finding the one's I'm willing to part with (and to think everyone calls me a book hoarder/magpie…)

  2. Jenre says:

    Why do I even need to reply to this post? You know just to send 'em all my way :).

    BTW. For the record, I received 2 yaoi in the post yesterday from Tracy: Maid in Heaven and Totally captivated. They'll be sent to Ingrid after I'm done with them which won't be long as I'm in the mood for yaoi.

  3. Natasha says:

    Hi all,
    I've ordered a whole heap of new yaoi. Most is preorder so when they arrive I'll pass them on. I do have a couple but they are more smex than anything. I will dig them up tommorrow.
    I know I have yaoi Hentai vols 1,2,4. NO STORY at all LOL!
    tish

  4. Kris says:

    Dear Magpie, knowing that few can resist the lure of The Book Swap we suck you out of lurkdom and into our orbit. *MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!*

    *ahem*

    I'll add 'The Guilty' to the post cos with this lot the answer is always 'HELL YES'. No willpower. Some think it's a curse, but, seriously, what would they know. 🙂

    Jen: *snort* Ditto. And thanks for the update.

    Tish: No story? You mean we'll have to read about sex? Well, shit.
    .
    .
    .
    I'll add Hentai to the list too. I'm assuming you want in on the yaoi in Tam's post too??

  5. Kris says:

    Magpie & Tish

    I forgot to say that if you want any of the yaoi that is listed under 'great yaoi swap' in the left hand column of my blog let me know and we'll add you to the list.

  6. Tracy says:

    I have to ditto Jenre's comment. Do I need to tell you I want them all? Ok, I want them all. I've loved getting all of the books and passing them on. And of course knowing that they must be sent to others makes me read them quicker than I normally would – which is a good thing. 🙂

    I sent U Don't Know Me (a new one in the bunch) to Tam the other day and I still have I Want To Be Naughty and Barefoot Waltz in my hot little hand.

  7. Tracy says:

    Oh and Tam – love the descriptions.

  8. Melissa says:

    I found three more to add, I have Rising Storm, Don't Worry Momma, and Vol 2 of the Man who Doesn't take off his Clothes.

    Where do I send them and where do I send my address?

    Also, Noodle Shop Affair Vol. 1, Naughty but Nice Vol. 1, and The Aristocrat and the Desert Prince are the only one's that I haven't read yet…

  9. Kris says:

    Tracy: No surprise there. 🙂 I've also added U Don't know Me to the list.

    Melissa: You can email me at krisngoodbooksATgmailDOTcom to start the ball rolling, and I will add those other 3 books to the post. That's awesome of you to play. 🙂

    Have you read all of the ones listed on the side bar too?? Damn, hun. You are a Book Slut.

  10. Ingrid says:

    Ditto with Jen. Everything I haven't read yet, just sent it on.
    (If you are not sure if I read them please check with me).
    There are lot of familiar ones in this post *grin*
    Kris, I already read Sweet Admiration too. Bought it myself.
    To pass on without a future addressee I have, But I'am your teacher and Desire.

    Melissa lurking is just not the thing to do if you want to get the nice things.

    I also had to laugh at the hentai description. More explicit yaoi? Makes you wonder.

  11. Kris says:

    Ingrid, I've edited the post and, yes, I imagine that quite a few of 'em are familiar. 😉

    Re: Hentai – I wondered if the person who did the Wiki had ever read yaoi before. I'm intrigued, however, by the thought that there is a more explicit yaoi.

  12. Natasha says:

    Kris,
    No you don't read the smex you have to look at pictures of really well drawn parts of the male anatomy being inserted into other well drawn parts of the male anatomy over and over nd over again…. If there are words… well blow me over with a feather I couldn't tell you. 😉
    tish.
    Was that polite enough… I am often being told I am rather to descriptive in my descriptions. LOLOLOLOL!

  13. Kris says:

    Hun, you'd have be a whole lot more descriptive to shock the peeps reading this blog. There have been some very memorable discussions about prepping for buttsecks and about vampire spunk. LOL

  14. Natasha says:

    the books I ordered tonight are…

    The Gothic Bundle… the works of Dany&Dany
    You will drown in love
    lovers and souls
    The Aristocrat and Desert prince
    Two of hearts
    Shy intentions
    Sleeping with money

    I think that some of those are already on the list. I did download some yaoi (hentai) anime which hubby can burn to disk if anyone is interested.

    Sensitive pornography
    Ai no kusabi 1 & 2
    Legend of the blue wolves (has a rape scene thats not pretty)
    Earthian 1,2,3,4
    Lesson XX
    There are a few more (a lot more) but I have to fire up the Mac to find them. Or find the discs LOL!

    tish

  15. Tam says:

    Okay, either send your e-mail to Kris or me tammy.ames(at)rogers.com and I'll make up my little lists for the stuff I have and can give you a list of who you should be sending your books too. You can put a list in the book and most of us put a our name and city in the cover so we can see the path.

    Of course Jen, Tracy, Ingrid and Kris are on the permanent list for receiving any yaoi out there. 🙂 Pervs.

    Oh of course I want to be on any lists that are created as well. LOL

  16. Natasha says:

    Kris,
    how do vampires cum? I always wondered about that…. surely you need blood circualting to get that sort of thing going
    tish

  17. Kris says:

    Tam, who're you calling perv, perv.

  18. Tracy says:

    Perv. Finally someone recognizes this wonderful trait in me.

  19. Lily says:

    I've got Dark Walker, which I haven't read yet but when I'm finished I don't know who to send it to.

    I'm really not that into the Yaoi and really didn't like the Manga so after I finish Dark Walker I'll stay out of the Yaoi Swap. It was fun and if you guys do a swap of non-yaoi/manga books I'd love to be in on that.

    *Runs quickly away before the Yaoi lovers hurt me*

  20. Kris says:

    Blasphemer!! It's not everyone's cuppa, Lily, so we'll forgive you… this time… and if/when we do another kind of swap you'll be the first to know. 🙂

    Re: Dark Walker – Hmmm…

    Hands up who wants Dark Walker people?! Don't be shy now.

  21. orannia says:

    Ahhh, more pretties. Thank you Kris & everyone! (Loved your summaries BTW Kris 🙂 Hmmmm. Can I resist? Nope *grin*

    Could you please add me to the list for:
    * The Aristocrat and the Desert Prince
    *Rising Storm
    * Golden Prince and Argent King
    * Yaoi Hentai Vols. 1, 2 & 4

    Picking is so difficult 🙂

    (((Lily))) Definitely no hurting from my end 🙂

  22. Kris says:

    As much as I'd love to take full credit, Orannia, it was our Tam who put this all together for us. She's the best. 🙂

    Why be picky I say. Choose the lot of 'em!

  23. Natasha says:

    Okay I'm awake now… just 🙂
    What I have in hot little hands right now…..

    Fake vol 1 and vol 7 (don't know what happened to 2-6)
    Yaoi Hentai vol 1 and vol 3
    The Crimson Spell vol 1 +2
    The Aulria Chronicals vol 1
    I tend to read comics more. I am a spidie girl LOL! But any comic girls out there I have the Pride high series and The Young Avengers series. (non sexual but they do have gay characters)

    tish

  24. Kris says:

    Dammit, Tish! No way I'm updating that post again. *pouts*

    You're entering your Crimson Spells into the mix?? Madness!

    PS – Am sending you an email straight away cos I've been dying to get my hands on Pride High. 🙂

  25. Natasha says:

    Kris,
    I ordered the whole series of Pride High 🙂 I am quite happy to send the whole set as soon as you want them. We do eventually get them back right because they were a real pain to get 🙂
    The yaoi hentai is very explicit! I mean it's xxx pron so not for the faint of heart.
    I am going off to order vol 2 and 4…. although the tenticle monster leaves soemthing to be desired…. then again there is something strangly fasinating about a monster with penis shaped tenticles doing a virgin on a train.
    tish

  26. Kris says:

    Hun, you keep the Pride High then, especially if you want them back. We've had at least one of the yaoi go AWOL in the post so don't put anything in the swap that you want to keep or get back.

    A tentacle penis?? Sounds… interesting???

  27. Natasha says:

    Kris,
    Are there any yaoi you'd like me add to the list. I have quite a bit of credit with Amazon with nothing to spend it on hehehehehe, so think ladies and get back to me or Kris.
    tish

  28. Natasha says:

    ladies….. I just went to get another copy of yaoi hentai vol 1 (and 3) and did you know that it cost $90 US and is unavailable in the UK (you cn get a copy from ebay for £140) so please be careful with mine 🙂
    tish 🙂

  29. Kris says:

    Holy shit, Tish. No way should we include hentai in the swap then cos that would majorly suck if it went MIA in the post.

    I know this will be disappointing for some cos more explicit yaoi and tentacle peni have some of us curious ;), but I'm making an executive decision here.

    *off to delete it from post*

  30. Natasha says:

    yaoi hentai vol 2,3,4 – 2 copies of each now so they are available 🙂

    ALso just ordered:

    Yaoi: Anthology of boys in love vol 1
    Saisoshi
    stallion

  31. orannia says:

    Thank you for setting me straight Kris! Thank you Tam!

    I feel like I'm drowning in yaoi…what a thought *grin*

  32. jitterbug says:

    If I'm not too late I would like to join the yaoi swap too. I hereby promise not to become unhinged and start stalking people. I don't have the money to globetrot anyway 😛

    Unfortunately I don't own any yaois. Only a bunch of shoujo mangas translated into Italian (and I'm said that some translations are quite terrible too).

  33. Kris says:

    Yay another semi-sane person to add to the list. Welcome Sara!

    Please tell us if you are interested in any of the yaoi listed in the left side bar and we will get those to you asap. 🙂

    Also, when you have a moment, could you either email Tam or myself with your snail addy? Ta hun.

    Orannia: Drowning in yaoi? Sounds like fun to me. 🙂

  34. Ingrid says:

    It is fun to see all the yaoi covering the couch or my bed.
    They are so colourfull, it brightens the place up 🙂

  35. Kris says:

    Hmmm, yaoi as decoration. Good thought, Ingrid. 😉
