ANIMAL #1 by Colo

I was in two minds about reviewing this book. Like a lot of the other graphic novels that I stumble upon, this one is also the first in a series that I have no chances of actually following up. Since this is incomplete work, which does not actually make sense, I should probably not be… Continue reading ANIMAL #1 by Colo

Dancing in Thatha’s Footsteps by Srividhya Venkat, Kavita Ramchandran (Illustrator)

This book is available to request on NetGalley until August I was tempted by the cover and the title because I was very close to both of my own grandfathers (The 'thatha' in the title is how many south Indian languages refer to their grandfathers, with the derivative coming from Sanskrit, which originally refers to… Continue reading Dancing in Thatha’s Footsteps by Srividhya Venkat, Kavita Ramchandran (Illustrator)

Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers by Lauren Burke, Hannah K. Chapman , Kaley Bales

My reading has always been haphazard, ever since I was little. Before Goodreads, I struggled to keep track of authors, both renowned and not, since I have trouble remembering names. I hardly even sound them out. This basically means that most of the content of this book was new to me, as it would be… Continue reading Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers by Lauren Burke, Hannah K.

Delicates (Sheets #2) by Brenna Thummler

I read and reviewed the previous book of the series : here It is not often that I get to read a sequel to a graphic novel. This one turned out to be better than the first.

This short graphic novel is based on a true story. The real people who feature in the narrative and their fates (known and unknown) are listed at the end, and they form the core of the story. Since this is an honest look at a school in the US in 1832, which had only black… Continue reading White all around by Wilfrid Lupano, Stephane Fert (Illustrator), Montana Kane (Translator)

The Neil Gaiman Library Volume 3 (Neil Gaiman Library #3)

I read a few volumes of The Sandman by the author a long time ago. When I saw an advance copy of this, I thought I could give this a shot as well. I requested in on Edelweiss+, and that has not impacted my review in any manner. The drawings and the stories themselves pack… Continue reading The Neil Gaiman Library Volume 3 (Neil Gaiman Library #3)
