Review: 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank – Matthew Rosenberg

Completely shocking. This was nothing like what I expected at all. Each chapter starts with a quirky but lighthearted game. You grow to know the characters through these games. You see them as they see themselves, which is much easier to connect with and so unique! The story follows Paige, whose father has got involved with some unsavoury characters and a plot to rob a local … Continue reading Review: 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank – Matthew Rosenberg

Comic Book Variety : Two Very Different Graphic Novels

Kim Reaper Vol.1 Grim Beginnings by Sarah Graley ‘Grim Beginnings’, despite its name, was actually a very fluffy comedy! The story is a mixture of absurd and endearing. Unfortunately, there were only hints of an overarching plot towards the very end, and the majority of the comic was quite shallow. There was no structure to the graphic novel, nor was there any climax. The two … Continue reading Comic Book Variety : Two Very Different Graphic Novels

The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

The Sun and Her Flowers Now here is an anthology that point blank refuses to be put into just one category. ‘The Sun and Her Flowers’ has a similar format to Rupi Kaur’s earlier work Milk and Honey. It begins with trials and heartache but ends with the Blooming of a person. This anthology retains the same controversial, unapologetically feminist outlook, but with a more considered, … Continue reading The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur

Who Runs the Wold – Virginia Bergin

Who knew a book about women running the world could be so terrifyingly dystopian? In Bergin’s novel, all men have been wiped out due to a disease affecting only those with a Y chromosome. The men still left standing are FARMED. Yes, FARMED for their spunk. This is both a story and a prediction of how women can both improve society and yet also worsen … Continue reading Who Runs the Wold – Virginia Bergin

Once Upon a Time there were Graphic Novels

Once Upon A Time: Out of the Past by Kalinda Vazquez and Corinna Bechko This was my favourite out of the companion books and graphic novels that I read. Not only are the characters very similar to how they were portrayed in the Netflix series, they were also completely original and not a straight-up retelling. One of the stories in this compendium is of the … Continue reading Once Upon a Time there were Graphic Novels

Ever thought about what it would mean to never be able to hide your past? It’s an interesting tale of a girl slowly relearning her father after his death. Leora is caught up in her father’s … Continue reading Ink – Alice Broadway

New 2018 Sarah Scribble’s Collection! Herding Cats by Sarah Anderson

  Sarah’s first collection ‘Adulthood is a Myth’ really spoke to me in a relatable comedic way. Anderson is not only completely hilarious but also talented at putting all those funny everyday moments onto the page. Each page is funny and it’s easy to flick through all at once or to take it a page a day. From this foundation, she has proved that people … Continue reading New 2018 Sarah Scribble’s Collection!
