Wrap Up: April 2020

Wrap Up Floral

Hello everyone! It’s fair to say April was another strange month. Has anyone else lost all concept of time? On that note, I am trying to keep busy. My distraction techniques during lockdown have included listening to music, playing Pokémon Go, and of course reading. Whilst my concentration has admittedly dipped, I have been on a roll reading a lot of graphic novels. I can’t get enough of them!

Books Read

Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Adulthood Is a Myth

It’s true: adulthood is a myth. I had seen some of Sarah’s Scribbles on the internet before reading this and am now a fan of her work! This is a collection of unrelated cartoons which I recommend to all introverts and bookworms. Here is one of my favourite panels:

If this ain’t me! 😂

Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Big Mushy Happy Lump

Sarah’s Scribbles are funny and relatable. In the second collection of comics, Andersen has also written illustrated personal essays, including how she came to love cats! 😻

Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Herding Cats

I love Sarah Andersen’s style and will definitely be checking out her ongoing webcomic since reading these three collections.

Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Cruel Beauty

This is a dark YA novel which blends Beauty and the Beast with Greek mythology. I thought the plot was unique and will be posting my review as soon as I can.

Heavy Vinyl Vol. 1: Riot on the Radio by Carly Usdin ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Heavy Vinyl

Heavy Vinyl has great artwork and I enjoyed the 90s nostalgia. It’s a cute, fun graphic novel about a group of girls who work in a record store and also fight crime!

Lumberjanes Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Lumberjanes Beware the Kitten Holy

Another cute graphic novel about girl power! Lumberjanes follows five friends at summer camp who go on supernatural adventures. I would like to read the rest of this series when my library reopens.
