This book was the most perfect post-Halloween read as I could ask for! I’m a big Graphic Novel fan, and Fake Blood by Whitney Gardner is a fangtastic combination of GNs and middle grade writing. I fell in love before I even opened the book!
As I’m sure you’re aware, Fangirls, sometimes its incredibly difficult to find time to do the things that we love. I’ve always had issues making myself to go shoot with my camera when I’m not being assigned to do so, and it’s starting to seem like that’s the case with reading as well.
The week marks the start of a very special time of the year. A time where we celebrate the joy of reading, even when some people disapprove of it. That’s right, I’m talking about Banned Books Week, which runs through October 3.
Fangirls, I don’t profess to know much about the X-Men. That’s what Alyssa is great at. But my friend offered my her copy of Rogue Touch by Christine Woodward the other day, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Fangirls, we’re at midterm time, and it’s frustrating. The woes of being a student have really started to hit home, and now that the weather is getting colder, there is less to do outside. So it’s time to hit the books.
I know reading textbooks can be the most irritating thing on the planet. I know that I tend to get distracted if I have to read more than five pages of dense text, and assignments usually require far more reading than that. So what can you do? I’ve learned a couple techniques from tutor reading classes, being a reading tutor, and having to read books.
Fangirls, I’m in love with these series. I think it’s safe to say of all the books I’m reading at the moment, it’s by far my favorite series. And this issue has been my favorite of the series thus far, which I think is what I’ve said about every newest issue as they’ve come out. But seriously. This issue is fucking fantastic. It’s excited, it’s hilarious, it’s all so grasping. I adore this comic’s ability to balance Kamala’s action & introspection with humor & wit. I could read it all damn day.
Look out for them spoilers, Fangirls! They’re all over this article.
I’ve always preferred reading physical books over e-readers.
