yes! In 2019 we‘re not making women and girls out to be the bad guy when they don‘t reciprocate feelings for their male friends! Will [redacted] be turned? Will [redacted] step in? Talk about a face I was happy to see! What is Spike and Dru‘s end game here? Still very much a fan of the tone and writing. can‘t wait for Issue #5!

4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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%

emtobiasz I finished this volume, but felt the same way. You‘re not missing anything in my opinion 2w

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

FINALLY I‘ve found something else to love. These two sisters Kate and Cate, are basically supernatural detectives in the same vain as the Winchester brothers of Supernatural. I picked this up because the description said it‘s perfect for fans of Veronica Mars and I am a fully fledged Marshmallow. I was expecting it to be dark and gritty but was very surprised (and happy!) about the bright colors & humor! #Horror #Fantasy #Graphicnovels #Sisters

I liked how it built up and the ending was good. If I was reading this as a Queer romance I would‘ve been satisfied but the magic element is basically nonexistent yet promised so I need that to be taking center stage in the next issue. #LGBTQ #Magic #Erotic #GraphicNovels

I of course am eager to see which of the Blossom kids will be crowned Anti-Christ but my patience is wearing thin.

If you‘re a fan of nerd culture this is definitely for you. An apocalyptic catastrophe of a never described nature happens and the area around the convention has been quarantined but the con never stopped! It‘s been five years and folks have been living in the convention center, cosplay has devolved into real life roles, food is hard to come by except for hot dog carts. a fun title with my favorite style of art!

Okay, this might be one of my favorite reads so far this year. It was eerily unsettling, completely transporting you to this landscape. I already checked out the next book in the series. Is Environmental Horror a genre? #EnvironmentalHorror #ScienceFiction #Horror #Suspense #Pagetofilm #JeffVandermeer

WhatWouldJaneDo This series is fantastic! I've seen it categorized as "cli-fi," but I think environmental horror works too. 1mo
WitBeyndMehsure @WhatWouldJaneDo oooo now I‘m going to look into cli-fi books! 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @WitBeyndMehsure cli-fi is a prompt in the popsugar challenge this year; if you're on Goodreads the Ultimate Popsugar Challenge group had a thread with suggestions 😁 once you finish the Southern Reach trilogy, I also really liked this author's book Borne! 1mo

I‘ve never been less impressed with something then decided to finish it anyway. Maybe the slice-of-life genre of comics/graphic novels isn‘t for me. What I DID like, was the stories submitted by folks called Retail Nightmares. I‘d read a full book of those.

#Library30 Day 9- Before We Open. It‘s so serene. I love working the reference desk but there‘s days I want to be in technical services away from folks and just exist in the quiet of it all. Just some Spotify and some records to add or something. But then the doors open and the calls start and I enjoy people again. #NLW19 #LibrariansofLitsy #LibraryLife

I LOVED the Netflix series and decided to check out the graphic novels since I have to wait for season two. Everything I love about the show is completely absent from the comic. The character development, diversity, and suspense about the coming apocalypse. Maybe it‘s the pacing of the story? I do really like the design of the White Violin. I‘ll read volume two despite my reservations here. #UmbrellaAcademy #GraphicNovels

I‘m not a cannabis user but one of the librarians got a kick out of this book and was showing it to me. It‘s a phenomenal cookbook. Everything from pastas to desserts and salads and meat dishes. It gives you how many servings of THC and everything. You could easily make all these minus cannabis so I recommend for cannabis and non cannabis users alike. #Cannabis #Cookbooks #Marijuana #THC #Munchies #Libraryfinds #NewBooks

My best friend got me this book after I graduated with my first masters and decided to be a librarian instead. I love that it helps readers understand what exactly librarians do in this day and age, as well as breaking down the stereotypes of what a Librarian looks like (old, White, tightly wound, strict, conventional dress) #Librarians #LibrariansofLitsy #Libraries #Nonfiction #Recommendsday
