Rat Queens Volume One: Sass and Sorcery REVIEW

ratqueens

I’ve really been getting into graphic novels lately. I’ve always been a reader but its a particular genre that I haven’t really delved into much before. There’s been a few books that I’ve read in the past that I really enjoyed (March, Persepolis), but recently, I’ve more or less, jumped head first into the world of graphic novels, and I’m honestly loving it. It’s a great break from the heavier reading of grad school and I love how easily I can get through a book. I think that after this past semester I felt like I was in a rather deep reading rut and graphic novels have been the perfect way to dig myself out and find my reading groove again!

I wish I could remember how exactly I came across Rat Queens because I’m so happy that I did. I requested it in my library system and picked it up a couple of days ago. Today I finished another book (Bitch Planet – pretty good), and felt like reading something else so I dove into Rat Queens right after. I recently finished a couple other graphic novels, but none has been as pleasurable as Rat Queens has been. I think I’ve fallen for this series hard. I know. I’m only on volume one, but I just have a sense that I’m really going to enjoy this series. Have you ever felt that way about a series? There’s just a vibe that you get!

Sunday Seven – May 20th 2018

thesundayseven

The Sunday Seven is a vaguely regular series where we share seven things that are on our radar in some way. They might be articles we enjoyed reading, a new food we’ve become obsessed with, a television show we need to talk about, or a new product we’ve discovered. There’s really no rhyme or reason – just think of it as our casual Sunday chat.

1 – The Office – I have to start this post off with a show I’ve become fully, and utterly obsessed with. I know – I’m WAY late to the party on this one. I honestly can’t explain why I never watched before. I had seen episodes here and there, but had never seen the series all the way though. Let me tell you, I am SO glad that I am finally doing just that. I’m just starting season six as we speak and OMG – this show is so good!! It’s painfully stupid, hilarious and at some points even sweet and heartwarming. I’m honestly surprised at the layers to this show, and just how much I’ve grown to like it. I’m definitely a big fan now. I’m just sorry it took me so long to become one. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
