Speak the graphic novel by Laurie Halse Anderson and Emily Carroll

I read Speak as a high school freshman. It’s a painful and powerful story, that has stuck with me for over ten years. Anderson is amazing, and while Speak can be difficult to read, it’s necessary. When I saw the graphic novel on the shelf at Barnes and Noble, I knew that it had to come home with me.

Simon VS The Homosapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Alright, I know I’m late, but I made it! I finally read Simon, aka the book that inspired Love, Simon, aka a huge deal. I read a bit about this when the movie was released, and saw that prominent figures (especially in the LGBTQ+ community) were buying out whole theatres so people could watch it. So I finally got my life together enough to read the book, and wow.

Backstagers: Act One

Fangirls, I bought this in a whim a couple months ago, and didn’t actually get to sit down and read it until this morning before we left. I was intrigued by it because it’s Boom! Box and  hey do amazing things, but also the colors are beyond gorgeous. I’m incredibly glad I finally got to crack it, though, because it seems like the beginning of something phenomenal.

Zodiac Starforce by Kevin Panetta & Paulina Ganucheau

Fangirls, it’s here. The comic I’ve been losing my mind over for the past couple of months, Zodiac Starforce, was released today. If you’ve been following my twitter, or instagram, or know me at all, you know that I’ve been in love with one character, Kim, since I saw her. I cosplay as her, obsess over her, all that jazz. Now I’ve been able to finally “meet” her, and it’s amazing.

Warning: this contains first issue spoilers. You should go read the issue.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

When I was in high school, Fangirls, I loved this book. I remember the discussions we had in our 11th grad AP English class about it, and how we felt about it becoming a reality. When I graduated, I bought it for myself thinking, I’m going to want to reread this someday. Well, that someday was yesterday, and I’m very glad that I did.

Barve-New-World

This book was written in the 1930’s by Aldous Huxley. They said it was too far ahead of it’s time. They may have been right.
