Graphic monday: Batgirl - Year One

So, this is how it all began….

Although Barbara’s motives for wanting to become a superhero (help her dad, help the city, become more than just a regular girl, be recognized for her hard efforts) are somewhat understandable, I found it a bit difficult to relate. She kept putting her life at risk effortlessly and was too competitive to receive help from a man. However, a girl helping was okay?!?

Having said that, the illustrations were easy to look at and the dialogue was on point.

Every Day movie review

David Levithan doesn't need an introduction in the YA world. He has published several bestsellers including The Lover's Dictionary. It was with great enthusiasm that I walked into the movie theater to watch his masterpiece, Every Day, adaptation to the big screen. 

For the most part, the movie stayed true to the book. The actors, particularly Rhiannon, matched well with the book descriptions. Although I must admit that my non-reader friends found the plot extremely difficult to understand. I truly suggest reading the novel first.
