August Wrap-Up.

Well, I did manage four reads this month so I'm glad about that. Only one was what I originally planned to read, and three of them were graphic novels, but it has been a really tough month reading-wise. I'm definitely going through a bit of a slump!

  1. 'Kriss: The Gift of Wrath' by Ted Naifeh & Warren Wucinich. My first read of the month was a dark, fantastical graphic novel. I loved the art so much, and became quite invested in the plot's potential. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing where this series goes. 3/5 Stars.
  2. 'Fence [Vol. 1]' by C.S. Pacat, Johanna The Mad & Shanen Pae. This first instalment of the series I've seen everywhere made me so happy! So much Queer goodness, I learnt a lot about fencing, and I'm super invested in the story. 4.5/5 Stars.
  3. 'Nimona' by Noelle Stevenson. This is another graphic novel that has been on the radar for a while because it is all over the blogosphere. I had so much love for the interesting characters and cool world-building concept (a unique blend of medieval fantasy and sci-fi). 4/5 Stars.
  4. 'Hello Me, It's You' collated by Hannah Todd. This was a really neat idea and definitely had the potential to open up a lot of dialogue about mental health issues. Repetitive at times but very relatable for those that have experience with the subject matter. 3/5 Stars.
