Collects Paper Girls #1-5.


Initial Thoughts:

A solid graphic novel with really likeable characters and plot twists are every turn. I would definitely recommend and really want to read issue 6. Too bad it does not come out until June. Insert sad face here...

Review:

Paper Girls is a highly entertaining graphic novel with an interesting plot that kept me engaged throughout the 5 issues and eager to read the 6th issue.

I had been wanting to read the first volume of Paper Girls after reading an extract from this graphic novel in an image previews comic. This led me to read the 1st issue which I really enjoyed however I did not read the comic in its single issue form as they came out and decided to wait for the trade.

I do not know why I waited to read this because the plot was interesting and everything that I needed from a graphic novel. The plot follows a group of girls who deliver newspapers to their local area and problems pursue. This was something that I definitely liked and was interested to see where the plot would go as most of the issues themselves ended with cliffhangers. This led me to read this quickly and then getting quite sad when I finished the trade and discovered that the 6th issue was not out yet. It is fair to say that I will be getting this issue when it comes out.

Although I really like the plot, the characters were a different story. It was not that I did not like the characters, I did and it was definitely to see an all girl characters however I would not be able to tell them apart if you asked me to. I feel like this is a general thing with graphic novels however because if they are quite short, I feel like I do not get enough time to learn their names or any features that make them who they are.

One of the best parts of the novel was definitely the art. It is bright and colourful making me enjoy it more and it added to the time of the story and to the general plot.

Overall, I really enjoyed Paper Girls as a graphic novel and will tell people to read it now before this series becomes bigger than it already is.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
