Mao, Vol. 3 | Rumiko Takahashi
post image
Pickpick

This installment had more backstory than the previous volumes which I felt slowed down the pace of the book a little. A good chunk took place in Mao‘s past and we learned more about his early days.

Like the previous volume, this one unveiled even more about the story and the characters, including details on how Mao and Nanoka are connected.

Mao, Vol. 2 | Rumiko Takahashi

This installment was jam packed with action. So much happened and I enjoyed every page of it. There was a lot of world building that helped move the story along. I liked that more of the story was revealed in this volume. This volume provided some answers and got me hooked. I have to know what happens next.

The art style is very simple, but classic. There‘s something a little old school and retro about it that I liked.

As for the storyline, I was very intrigued by it. It‘s fast paced and there‘s a lot of mystery and fantasy action and adventure that kept me turning the pages.

I‘m trying something new where I read a library book a month. Hopefully this will hold me accountable to getting my library books done and reading more of them. So here is the library book I will be reading this month.

I was very excited to read this book because 1) the main character has my name and 2) I have ventured also into the crazy world of dating apps. All in all, it was a very fun read.

Goodbye, Vitamin | Rachel Khong

4🌟 Khong did a great job of capturing what it means to be human in this heartfelt, quirky yet at times hilarious read. From life, loss and love to family and forgiveness, and to growing up in your thirties, adding humour and intimacy along the way! A quick read that even though was a reread I didn't want it to end! #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookblogger #domesticfiction #bookstagram

This was such a cute graphic novel!

I‘ve read Mooncakes, which is another graphic novel the author co-wrote, and loved it so I knew I needed to read this one.

Overall, I recommend this book to readers of all ages who love magic, witches, or dragons. This book also makes a great gift because it is a gorgeous hardcover!

My Heart Is a Chainsaw | Stephen Graham Jones

4/5🌟This was a slow burn for me. I almost dnf'd it but after a few friends said it was worth it to finish I stuck with it and I'm glad I did! I was pulled into Jade's chaotic world as she so desperately sought connection. Stephen Graham Jones attention to detail in relevance to the story, slasher films, the town, Jade's character, and colonization was so so well done! #bookreview #bookreviewer
