This book. Book Love. Is AMAZING. Never have I ever felt so accepted and understood by a book before. It’s basically about ME. Debbie Tung is basically ONE OF US!!!!!!
She has nailed it! From our bookish dreams to our bookish adventures to our bookish dilemmas and to the bookish nightmares, she very accurately gets it all.
From our obsession with new editions of the same book to our fears of destroying our books by spilling coffee over it. From our never ending difficulty to decide which book to carry with ourselves in case we finish our current read to our helplessness with our favourite books being destroyed by the not so great movie adaptation.
With each page I was like “Can this be any more true?” and “Hah! I know right!”.
I finished reading this in an hour or two and then immediately handed it over to my husband, stating “This IS me!!!!”
Book Love is a graphic novel with cute black and white illustrations validating every bookish feeling you’ve ever had. If your life revolves around books, if you read and breathe them, you NEED to get this one.
My Rating: 5/5
