Imagine it’s your birthday. Or another holiday or occasion on which you are getting a gift. You are beyond excited; eagerly anticipating the thing you have been wanting most. Your smile is so big and your demeanor so bubbly that your family and friends being exchanging puzzled looks questioning your mental stability. And then, finally, you are opening that gift and it turns out to be not at all what you were expecting.
That scenario is how I felt about I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf. It’s a fun graphic novel sure, just not what I was expecting. There is bright and bold art on every page and comics perfect for a writer or aspiring writer. If you are an avid reader and book lover, thinking this book will be right up your bibliophile alley, you may find that, as I did, the comics miss their mark a bit.
Still a fun, light read–a great one to grab at your local library!
