Check Please 1: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu

What feels like eons ago, my coworker and friend, told me about an adorable web comic that I just had to read called Check Please!. What she didn't tell me was that it was a super cute LGBTQ+ story with a pie-baking hockey player as it's protagonist! How could I have put off reading this… Continue reading Check Please 1: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu

Favorite Graphic Novels

In Sunday's review of Mythos, I mentioned I was struggling with writing reviews lately. I don't know what's been going on with me - maybe it's the fact that I've been reading parts of so many books and haven't finished as many as I'd like, or that the independent bookstore I work at has been… Continue reading Favorite Graphic Novels

Kid Gloves by Lucy Knisley

I don't know if I want kids. Thankfully, my husband also isn't sure, so we are unsure together. And when Lucy announced her own pregnancy at the beginning of 2016, I was so excited because I knew, eventually, she'd write about it has she has done with countless other events in her life, such as… Continue reading Kid Gloves by Lucy Knisley

Saga by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Saga has grown from a small underground comic to one so big, the characters are now Funko Pop figures. And it is, for many, the comic that got them into contemporary graphic novels, myself included. While not the first I read, it is responsible for my continued love of the genre and format. Synopsis Saga is… Continue reading Saga by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples

Honor Girl by Maggie Thrash

Back in 2015, one of my coworkers went to a book conference and brought me back a signed copy of Honor Girl. At first, I didn't really realized why she picked this particular book for me, until I started reading it. I love it. Synopsis Maggie is fifteen and has spent basically every summer of her… Continue reading Honor Girl by Maggie Thrash

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Persepolis had been on my TBR list for a very long time, probably since I first saw the trailer for the film adaptation (which I still haven't seen) at an art theater in the town I grew up in. When Emma Watson, one of my personal heroes, decided to make it a selection for her Goodreads'… Continue reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

I have been lent Hyperbole and a Half by more than one friend more than once over the last few years and for some very unknown reason, it has taken me this long to finish it. I don't know why, it is hilarious and resonates with me a great deal, but I am of the belief that,… Continue reading Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

And lucky for me, this book came… Continue reading Something New by Lucy Knisley

Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green

It is an interesting story how I stumbled upon Lighter Than My Shadow. About a month and a half ago I was in New York City for BookExpo, and as a member of the ABA (the American Booksellers Association) I had been granted special access to a room full of galleys/ARCs (advanced reader copies) of books.… Continue reading Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green
