Hi all, so I somehow managed to finish a challenge for once. I’m highkey surprised, but I actually did it! I’m so proud of me.

I managed to read five books in a row, and it was epic. I really enjoyed this event, and I met some really awesome people along the way! I also got to read about a bunch of other books I had never heard of before, and I had a lot of fun! My tbr got even longer…

So I read: Continue reading #AsianLitBingo: Wrap-up Post!

Graphic Novel Review: Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki

I bought this book 🙂

Skim by Mariko and  Jillian Tamaki

Edition: Kindle

Published: 01.01.2008

Catch it Here: GoodreadsAmazonB&N

Blurb:

Heartbreakingly funny, moving and vibrantly drawn, Skim is an extraordinary book–a smart and sensitive graphic novel of the highest literary and artistic quality, by and about young women.

“Skim” is Kimberly Keiko Cameron, a not-slim, would-be Wiccan goth who goes to a private girls’ school. When Skim’s classmate Katie Matthews is dumped by her boyfriend, who then kills himself, the entire school goes into mourning overdrive. As concerned guidance counselors provide lectures on the “cycle of grief,” and the popular clique starts a new club (Girls Celebrate Life!) to bolster school spirit, Skim sinks into an ever-deepening depression.

And falling in love only makes things worse…

Suicide, depression, love, being gay or not, crushes, cliques, and finding a way to be your own fully human self–are all explored in this brilliant collaboration by cousins Mariko and Jillian Tamaki. An edgy, keenly observed and poignant glimpse into the heartache of being young.

*Note: I readthis as part of the #AsianLitBingo event, read until the end for details!

To be perfectly honest, I don’t read graphic novels often; I typically read manga or webtoons. So I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I random selected Skim for the #AsianLitBingo challenge, and I was pleasantly surprised.  Continue reading Graphic Novel Review: Skim by Mariko and Jillian Tamaki

The Jingle Bell Tag

the-jingle-bell-tag

Don’t lie, you totally started singing the song when you saw the title, right? Me too! Fun fact, when I was a tiny toddler, I couldn’t pronounce “jingle” or “bells.” So I used to sing “shingle nails.” Haha, no one lets me forget it either…

Anyway, today I am participating in the Jingle Bell Tag, created by Richard @ The Humpo Show! I originally saw this over on the Sassy Book Geek blog! So make sure you read Heather’s post too. She has some really fun answers!

The Diverse Books Tag

Okay, so there was some Twitter drama online last week about lack of diversity in fiction. Somehow I came across a really nice tag about diverse books, so I decided to share some of my favorites as well! I found this tag over at Read Diverse Books, so

A Book Starring a Lesbian Character

Wolfcry by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes 

I was around twelve when I read this book, and it’s always been dear to my heart because it was the first LGBT book I ever read. This is the fourth installment of the Kiesha’ra series, and it is my second favourite in the series.

A Book With a Muslim Protagonist

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

I clearly need to read more diverse books, because this was the only book I could think of with a main character who is Muslim, and it’s not even fiction. I think Malala is amazing, a real hero for girls around the world. Continue reading The Diverse Books Tag
