LGBTQ+ Book Club – Heartstopper: Volume Two

LGBTQ+ Book Club HeaderLast Thursday we met up for our monthly LGBTQ+ Book Club gathering! In July, we read Heartstopper: Volume One by Alice Oseman and had such a great response we decided to carry on with Volume Two. She created these graphic novels based off her webcomics which are available for free online. We will be mainly focusing on thoughts on Volume Two but some Volume One comments will be in this post too – it can be hard to separate for those who read it online and more people could attend Book Club this month so it was really nice to talk about both!

Paper Girls by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang (Blogmas)

Book Review Header

It’s been quite a long time since i sat down and read a graphic novel. I’ve felt like i haven’t had the time to sit and read one in one sitting (which is what i usually do) so i’ve ignored that section of my book shelves all together. However, i sat down with Paper Girls after having it on my shelf for over a year, finally.
