My boyfriend has introduced me to the world of cheesey horror movies. You know, the really bad ones? Part of their charm lies within hosted shows. These shows usually break the movie into chunks, with a host dissecting how bad parts are, where it was filmed, what the cast is up to now. They’re a big part of horror culture that I wasn’t really aware of until recently. A big name in hosted shows is Elvira, maybe you’ve heard of her!
I grabbed this book awhile back because I got some promotional nail polish in an OwlCrate. Promotional add-on’s: they work.
I grabbed this graphic novel because it was huge and the cover was striking. When I checked out, the cashier was excited because she had read parts of the webcomic awhile back, and it made me even more excited to read it. But I still took my dang time getting to it. But I read it, and I loved it.
On A Sunbeam is about people who rebuild and fix up old buildings. They help old churches become apartment buildings, or offices; all sorts of things. But they all have interesting pasts, and when their newest worker, Mia, joins, those pasts open up a bit.
This book takes place five years ago and now, both following Mia. Five years ago, she was in school and falling in love. But now she’s working to rebuild buildings, and thinking about her past.
This book is beautiful in ways I didn’t expect, and I loved it so dang much. I was blown away by the beauty of the art and the story, and I really can’t recommend it enough. Clocking in at 535 pages, this is a behemoth of a graphic novel. But it is so dang worth your time. Grab a copy for yourself at Barnes & Noble, or check your local library.

I’ve heard so much hype around this and Two Can Keep a Secret, that I finally had to get my life together enough to read it! I’m sorry that it took me so dang long, but I’m so glad that I finally read it.
Oh my goodness. As some of you know, I’m a huge fan of the Alien movies. I hadn’t seen them until just a couple years ago, and I fell in love! So when I heard of a YA book set in the universe, I lost my dang mind.
I had my eye on this for quite some time, because of this dang cover. Its cute and fun with incredible colors. So I finally picked it up, and ended up bringing it on vacation with me.
First things first: I bought this book for the hype. I knew nothing about it, other than it had a pretty cover, was a graphic novel, and everyone was pumped about it. So I bought it. That being said, I assumed (you know what they say about that) that it was about a straight couple but ITS NOT! This is a gay book and it’s an incredible one. Let’s dive in.
