Weekly Round Up #6

It’s the end of the week and you know what that means! Time for another Weekly Round Up! I had a couple of really bad headaches and I wasn’t off on Monday for Labor Day either, so there wasn’t much reading this week. I finished one book, read a few manga, and a few comics. I’ll recap the few that I read that I really liked this week but this post will be a little short. Let’s dive into the pages (that was so corny). As usual titles in blue are finished and purples are in progress!

  • Bloom Into You, vol. 1 by Nakatani Nio
    • Oh my god you guys this manga was so adorable! I loved it. It’s all about Yuu who dreams of the ultimate romance. She wants the whole nine yards. Flowers, candy, romantic outings, and most of all, love. When one of her class mates confesses his feeling for her though, she feels nothing. She starts high school not knowing if she will ever get her romantic love. She meets Nanami while they are both working on the student council. Nanami runs for student council president with Yuu as her campaign manager. Will something happen between the two girls? You’ll have to read it and find out!
  • Bad Girls Throughout History by Ann Shen
    • This book is about 100 remarkable women who changed the world. This book is really cute and I think it would be a great read for young girls. The illustrations are beautiful as well. I’m about a third of the way through and I’ve read about a bunch of women that I’ve never even heard about before!
  • Spinning by Tillie Walden
    • This is a graphic memoir by Tillie Walden who was an ice skater for 14 years. I initially thought this was about ballet because on the cover the girls are wearing tutus (for some reason I missed the ice skates though). This was a really great book and very beautifully illustrated. I knew nothing of the subject going in and I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I really loved the story and how it progressed over the book. I also learned a lot about figure skating and how the competition world works. I would highly recommend this book to any fans of memoirs. It is a different take on the genre and I really liked that.

That’s it for this week! I had a busy (but good) week. I got some amazing news that I hope I can share with you guys in the next week or so. My local librarian Patricia, suggested some new manga series for me to start so I’ll be reviewing some of those next week!
