Engineer by day, reader by all times. I'm either reading, working on a for-fun indie game dev project, playing with my chinchilla or cats, or cooking! Coffee and tofu fuel me through life and my vice is my hoarding of all things Pusheen themed.
Hello little owls! I am so excited, because my Owlcrate Finale book box has arrived!!
Finale is the third and final book in the Caraval series by Stephanie Garber. Garber has created a wonderful world of magic fantasy in her Caraval series. The first book followed Scarlett as she enters a magical carnaval-esque world run by a mysterious man named Legend. At Caraval, attendees can compete in a competition akin to a clue hunt. The winner gets a wish granted by Legendary. Scarlett plays seeking to save her sister, Tella. Along the way she finds love and betrayal and adventure. Legendary, the second book, follows Tella as she plays Caraval and seeks to uncover the identity of Legendary in order to save her mother. The second book leaves us at a climax cliff hanger, and now Finale brings us back to the world of Caraval this time through the alternating perspectives of Tella and Scarlett.
Free Comic Book Day was this past Saturday, and my haul was a
“go big or go home” one. For those of you unfamiliar with Free Comic
Book Day, it’s an event hosted nationally in comic shops in North America on
the first Saturday in May annually. Free comics are provided at local comic
shops and some even run sales on this day. If this is your first time hearing
about this, check out the Free Comic Book Day website here and put it on your calendar for next year!
I’ve been in a manga/comic mood lately so I’m excited about the comics that I got and will be posting more in depth reviews on some of them as I read them. This post is going to be a lengthy one, and I’m not even including all the comics I got! You can scroll through to see if any of the titles I bought catch your eye and to read the synopsis for each of them. The entire haul of what I got is a shelf on my Goodreads, if you want to check out more, linked here. If you end up adding any to your To Be Read list or if you already have read any of them, let me know! I’d love to discuss them. Now, let’s begin!
