Mooncakes? Depends on What You’re Looking For…

Mooncakes

I received a copy of Mooncakes from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. It’s scheduled to be released October 15th per Goodreads.

I was really looking forward to this one: witches and what seemed like cooking. No it doesn’t take much to make me happy but after thinking on it for a couple of days I’m very torn on Mooncakes.

I Hate Fairyland Vol. 4 Sadly Never After

By: Skottie Young

Grade: A

I have enjoyed every previous visit to Fairyland with our little over-sugared adult trapped in a child’s body and snapped psychopath Gert. That this seems like the end makes me want to cry. Though it goes out strong and on-top and I really enjoyed it.

I actually have, at times, asked myself the same question Betty Cooper asks in this book… What would Harley Quinn do? I like to keep it legal though. 🙂 Still I was amused to see someone else asking the exact same thing!

Sabrina

By: Nick Drnaso

Grade: C-

I leapt at reading Sabrina when I saw it was the first graphic novel ever on the Man Booker Award list. I love graphic novels and the subject matter- about a missing woman and the effects the media and social media have on the family and the story- well, it’s something that very much has interested me lately.
