Renegade Rule | Ben Kahn, Rachel Silverstein

A very fun story about a friend group of queer girl gamers who are competing in the championships for Renegade Rule. The narrative follows our team both in and out of the game. I loved this! I wish we could have more of these characters as they navigate post-college life. #DeweysApril2024 #Readathon #GraphicNovels #GirlGamers #LGBTQIA

The Keeper | Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes
post image

I enjoyed this book, my first from Tananarive Due. It was spooky while also dealing with heavier themes of death, grief, the foster care system, and overall the experience of being Black in America. You really can‘t help but feel for Aisha since she‘s so young and has lost so much. Maybe we all need a lil dark entity to take care of us every once in awhile 😭 #DeweysApril2024 #readathon #GraphicNovel #Horror #TananariveDue

The Heart Hunter | Mickey George

Due to a curse, everyone is immortal and wears their heart outside their body. Only finding a soulmate allows you to become mortal and leave the island. This has a great concept but it was hard at times to follow the story and art. It‘s incredibly fast paced with a lot happening in the panels. There‘s a beautiful message throughout and plenty of queer representation. #DeweysApril2024 #readathon #graphicnovel #LGBTQIA #fantasy #youngadult

I enjoyed this! It was a quick and fun read that told the stories of multiple guests checking into Hotel Diablo. Unexpected in some parts, horror in some, while heartfelt in others. I would love more stories set in this hotel. #DeweysApril2024 #readathon #graphicnovel #horror #fantasy

I Don't Want to Be a Mom | Kendra Boileau, Ireme Olmo
post image

First read of #DeweysApril2024. This was a wonderful non-fiction graphic novel exploring the author‘s decision to not be a mother and her experiences with societal pressure to impose motherhood on her. It‘s got humor and lovely colorful art. The only thing I would‘ve wanted to read more about was her relationship with her sisters; whether they were mothers and if so, the experience of being an aunt. #Readathon #graphicnovel #autobiography

This book tells Jill and Jack‘s story in the Moors. I again love the writing and rich description of this world. There‘s a cautionary tale wrapped in here about subjecting your children to staunchly defined gender roles and denying children autonomy. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 #Fantasy #Recommendsday #MagicalRealism #WaywardChildren #LibrariansofLitsy #Novella

Heads of the Colored People: Stories | Nafissa Thompson-Spires

Pickpick

I‘m surprised I didn‘t post this the first time I read it. I love this short story collection. Many of the stories have a connecting thread and focus on the experiences of a middle to upper middle class Black folks. Content Warning for a story about suicidal ideation, and a story centered around fatphobia. Second read for a book club discussion I lead! #ShortStories #HeadsOfTheColoredPeople #BookClub

All Systems Red | Martha Wells

I LOVED this book! I really enjoy sci-fi in the realm of time travel & parallel universes, but not off-Earth sci-fi. So I was apprehensive about this but I‘m so glad I gave it a chance. Murderbot is an AI/human construct that‘s hacked it‘s Governor module and is making it‘s own decisions. Murderbot is very relatable and also really funny. Recommend for elements of action, mystery, mild suspense and strong character development. #ScienceFiction

Jules becomes an apartment sitter at the ritzy Bartholomew in NYC which has seen it‘s share of tragedies. She‘ll be paid 12k for three months to follow these absurd rules. Then one of the sitters disappears and she unravels a dangerous mystery. The suspense in this is CRITICAL. Actually creepy to read at night. I didn‘t see the ending coming at all. This book has a strong sense of place with the Bartholomew and NYC. Reminds me of 666 Park Avenue!

A Fire Story | Brian Fies

My selected book for #ReadHarder2020 “Read a book about a natural disaster”. I lived in Chicago all my life and never really had to deal with natural disasters. This is scary stuff but the author‘s resilience is evident in the graphic novel. He also incorporates other folks stories of that night through interviews.

I read this for the Book Riot #ReadHarder Challenge prompt “Read a Graphic memoir”. It‘s really awesome to read such a candid story to understand one person‘s intimidate experience with gender throughout their life. Maia uses e, eir, eim pronouns and details the struggles with eir body growing up, coming out, sexuality and more. Definitely worth the read and the art is very pleasing. #GraphicNovel #LGBTQIA+ #ReadHarder2020 #Memoir

I wanted to like this more than I did. I‘m appreciative of the diversity in the story as far as race, sexuality, and size. It‘s very nice to see a plus sized girl in a cute outfit! Seeing protective styles on Black girls. It was those types of elements in the art that resonated with me. I wasn‘t very invested in the storyline though. #GraphicNovels #WonderWoman

I saw #BirdsofPrey last night and I wanted more. I decided to start with Gail Simone‘s run although I know she wrote issues in the previous run that started in 1999. DC Universe is great for my catching up on oldies. I think having watched Arrow & Justice League animated series helped ease my transition to characters I otherwise wouldn‘t know and therefore care about much. I stan Barbara Gordon/Oracle/Batgirl because #Librarian. #DCComics #Comics

I read this for a book club. I like that this is a quick read and not a super heavy academic text or inaccessible overview of core ideas around Black #feminism. The book touches on how Black women‘s sexuality is policed, respectability politics, fatphobia, and overall misogynoir. If you‘re already well informed on how Black women are treated in society this is a refresher. For folks new to some of these ideas this is a good place to start.

Camp So-and-So | Mary McCoy

Camp So-and-So is told through an omniscient narrator‘s voice and follows 5 cabins of girl campers at a camp that‘s not really a camp. That‘s really all you need to know or would want to know so that everything else can be a surprise. This is a Young Adult horror novel so it wasn‘t super scary or gory and read pretty quickly, although by 60% through the book I was ready for the story to conclude. #YA #Horror #CampSetting

WHOA. And Blake Crouch does it AGAIN. This is edge of your seat sci-fi thriller. After “Book One” it‘s impossible to put down. Can‘t even give too many details here or I‘d risk giving spoilers. My heart was still rapidly beating after I was done. Blake Crouch is the master of this genre I‘ve been a huge fan since Dark Matter. #ScienceFiction #Thriller

The Women's War | Jenna Glass
post image
Pickpick

It felt like FOREVER finishing this book. The premise is great: in this society where women are treated as property, and overall dehumanized, there is magic (also generally only acceptable for men to use). A spell is cast that threatens the patriarchy giving women more choice and power. The story includes what I find is the most repulsive male character since Joffrey in Game of Thrones. But I‘m invested in the story enough to read the second book.

MillennialP1nk Also want to add that there‘s some serious world building and political maneuvering with not so much action. A great high fantasy feminist epic as it‘s described! 4y

So from issue #5 through 8 we got a new artist because Dan Mora left to presumably do Once and Future (I‘ll allow). But the art now is just.....I‘m an anti-fan. All the characters look shocked all the time and they no longer resemble the actors. Writing is still good though. They‘re gearing up for a Hellmouth crossover with Angel and #8 does GREAT set up. I‘m hyped!

This is such an interesting read. In the 60s a group of four women invent time travel. After a few trips one has a mental breakdown and is hospitalized. From there we jump around in time to other characters‘ POV and look at how the Time Conclave stigmatizes mental health issues. There‘s also a murder mystery? Could be uncomfortable read if triggered by bad opinions of mental health, but the author is a psychologist so the topics are in good hands

While I felt this books gave me easily digestible information about what the author has termed “Millenneagram” (based on the Enneagrams) the tone in this felt very forced. Like that “hey fellow kids” meme. I also wish it helped you determine your wing (or am I both? Confused) but interesting stuff nonetheless. Your section is probably a short read. #Enneagrams

A woman comes home to find that a new family is moving in her beloved house despite it never having been on the market. Her husband is missing and her kids aren‘t in school. This story is told through both Fi (wife) and Bram (husband) POVs at two different points in time; Fi‘s through a podcast with #VictimFi (you should tweet song!) highly recommend for domestic suspense/thriller fans. #DomesticSuspense #Betrayal #Twists

I didn‘t realize this was a memoir at first. It‘s the author‘s story and adventures in online dating. Nothing too spectacular here. Girl in her 20s making questionable dating decisions. More background on her childhood would actually be more interesting content. It was given in small tidbits. #OnlineDating #Memoir #GraphicNovel

This deserved every Eisner Award it received. Even if you‘re not a superhero fan (I‘m not super familiar with Big Barda or Mister Miracle) this story is SO human. Definitely a content warning for suicide but it deals with childhood trauma in such a real way that you don‘t normally see in a superhero story. I just can‘t recommend this enough #MisterMiracle #Comics #GraphicNovels #TomKing

I 100% fell in love with this telling of Raven‘s coming of age story. Everything I want to say is a spoiler kind of but my goodness. Kami Garcia wrote this very well. The illustrations are also very like watercolor kind of, but sometimes full color and I wonder what inspired Gabriel to do them that way. Either way a non superhero fan would still love this. #DCink #TeenTitans #ComingofAge #Graphicnovels

I love the Archie Horror imprint! A Zombie Apocalypse hits Riverdale. I‘m not an Archie comics reader (the only thing I‘ve read related is Blossoms 666 and CAOS) only a Riverdale watcher, so I‘m not use to the feud between Veronica and Betty Cooper which is VERY annoying to me. Otherwise, awesome title! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 #Archiecomics #Archiehorror #zombies #graphicnovels #comics #riverdale

This is a story about a group of friends who get together to play a RPG (like Dungeons and Dragons) called Die. However, the world is real and they disappear for two years into the game only to return missing one of their own. 25 years pass and the trauma lingers for some more than others until evidence that their friend may be alive turns up and they go back into the game.

This was just so damn beautiful visually. There‘s a twist that I won‘t spoil but it‘s a trope that I‘m not particularly fond of in my late 20s. I also didn‘t buy the chemistry between the main character and the guy. Definitely not enough to be listed with a genre of romance on the back cover. Do read though interesting story! #Blackbird #GraphicNovels

So I have a problem where I cannot stand when cartoon and real life things mix. See: Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Space Jam as examples. It makes me uncomfortable lol idk why. This graphic novel has a weird art style that reminds me of that. I even read reviews to see if I was just tripping but no! other people said the same thing lol. Also the story just wasn‘t keeping me invested. #DNF at 35%

I started reading this last night and DNF at 3%. The first chapter is very....preachy. And the dialogue is bad. It felt like an in person rambling conversation. Then I saw its 624 pages. I‘m not reading this type of dialogue for that many pages. The concept for this is super interesting and I want to read more in the Cli-Fi genre but this isn‘t it. #CliFi #DNF
