Stories I Loved – Jan 2017

I haven’t done one of these in a while – it’s long…

I haven’t done one of these in a while – it’s long overdue! I’ve been reading a lot of graphic novels recently, trying to get a head start on my overly optimistic 2017 Goodreads reading goal, which is 150 books this year. Despite this, I’m already seven books behind, haha. So clearly the graphic novels aren’t really helping me very much.

"how long has your hat been a live raccoon?"
Please read Lumberjanes.

Anyway, I have fallen instantly in love with Lumberjanes. It’s like if Night Vale had a summer camp. And it has a diverse cast of characters, including an adorable f/f couple, (possibly?) a trans girl (two? trans girls? I’m not done with the series so I’m┬ánot 100% on this yet), casual mention of a girl with two dads, and several POC. It’s also just hilarious fun, with dinosaurs who steal glasses, possessed boy scouts, shapeshifters, etc. There’s body diversity, a cute femme girl who is physically the strongest… It is just 1000000 good things in one adorable package, and you need to read it. Now.
