All I have to say is that I am in my Graphic Novel Era! I read seven books this last month and 6/7 were graphic novels. Honestly I was a little sad that I only finished one big book this month but I should still be proud of myself for reaching out of my comfort zone. After all reading is reading no matter the format!
“Tomorrow, And Tomorrow, And Tomorrow” By Gabrielle Zevin
On a bitter-cold day, in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom.
These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities won’t protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts.
Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a dazzling and intricately imagined novel that examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love. Yes, it is a love story, but it is not one you have read before.
“Lore Olympus” Volumes 2 & 3
I would rate this series so far 4 stars. I really love the art style of these but I feel as if I am missing some of the story line. I am very excited for the next volume to come out in June!
“Spy Family” Volume 9
I am in love with this series so far and this volume was no exception! This was the only book I rated five stars to this month which blows my mind! I can not wait for the next volume to come out, but in the mean time maybe I will start watching the TV Series.
“I Think Our Son Is Gay”
So far this series has been super cute and I love that the perspective is from the mom. I think it has a really sweet message behind it. I need to get my hands on the rest of these ASAP!
This is the second book in the Sheets Graphic Novel Series and I am absolutely hooked! This one had a lot of teenage drama but did a really good job discussing the reality of bullying. Trigger Warning for Depression and Suicidal Thoughts.
Overall I had a really good reading month where I read books that I truly enjoyed but heavy on the trigger warnings! Let me know if you decide to pick any of these up!
