4 ⭐ This graphic novel is both heartbreaking and contemplative. Its the story of a modern family both past and present, and the difference in life between two mothers. The author gives us the true accounts of her, her mom, her dad, brother sisters, and how it correlates to the life that she lives now. This graphic memoir has been chosen as an NEA big read book for this year, and after reading it, I understand why.

The Complete ElfQuest Volume 6 | Wendy Pini, Richard Pini

Exactly a year ago, Kobo gave me a free VIP membership. It entitled me to 10% off a bunch of stuff and also came with two free books (from a particular pool), which I dithered over until just this week.

Then they sent me some coupons, and there were good sales on top of that, and I was like, okay, gotta milk this thing while I still have that 10% discount.

TL;DR: my TBR jumped from 5 books to 15 in no time. That‘s a huge haul for me these days.

TheKidUpstairs I've never read this series, but to my general knowledge of Greek Mythology Lance Reddick is a freakin' fabulous choice for Zeus! Not one I would have expected, but seeing this just makes so much sense. 17h
KathyWheeler I love Lance Reddick! He will make an interesting Zeus. Are the children going to closer to the ages they were in the books? 15h
ozma.of.oz @KathyWheeler I think so! Walker Scobell, the boy playing Percy, is 14. And Annabeth‘s actress, Leah Jeffries, is 13. 3h

Riad Sattouf continues to recount his childhood in Syria.
Riad Sattouf does a great job at describing his experiences with honesty: school, life in his village, holidays, etc. Even the parts that are violent.
In this installment, the use of the child as a narrator actually increases the emotional weight of some events: assassination of the aunt, a pupil not coming back to school.
I preferred this book to the previous one.

Such a cute graphic novel for middle graders. Just like with the first book in the series, Garlic goes on a little adventure where she has to overcome her fears.

12/150 I think that this is the best volume of the series I've read so far. All six issues had stories that really clicked and were entertaining, even The New Mutants and Fallen Angels, usually my least favorite parts. Does anyone else ship Kitty Pryde and Emma Frost as a couple? Maybe it's just me, but they seem more than just friends or co-workers. I think they'd be an amazing couple.

Fireside SAGA tonight!

I love first person narrators because you can‘t fully trust them, and Hazel is one of my favourites because she KNOWS that. She takes her extensive knowledge of how stories work and has a blast manipulating the reader with double meanings and foreshadowing designed to mislead. She never lies to us, but what we hear isn‘t always what she‘s said. It‘s glorious. I love it so damned much.
