The Girl from the Other Side Vol. 1 by Nagabe

So this past week I read a graphic novel. I obviously do not want to give too much away. Basically, there are two kingdoms, the Outside and the Inside. The Outside is filled with monsters that can pass along a curse with a touch and the Inside is where the humans live. The book follows the life of a human girl who is friends with a beast from the Outside.

This book was soooo good. It is such a page turner and I read it in maybe an hour. The little girl (Shiva) is adorable. I think the Outsider is funny without trying. The book has so many twists that I did not expect coming and it ended on a crazy cliff-hanger. I love the artwork too! Definitely my type of art, so creepy and pretty simultaneously. I cannot wait to get Vol. 2. 10/10 would definitely recommend. πŸ˜€

Update

I am soooo sorry! My goal has been to post once a week, obviously that has not happened. All I can say is that life got in the way. A bunch of things came up, and now I am sick with strep throat…yay!

I recently watched Coraline for the millionth time. That is honestly one of my favorite movies. I love the art work and the story. The book is great too. Another one of my favorite movies is Dinosaur. I love how almost realistic the movie looks. Yea, yea, I know a bunch of my favorite movies are “kid” movies, I don’t care. ;P

While I am sick I am going to try to read/watch some more stuff and actually do a proper review πŸ˜€

See you next week with actual deep thoughts and opinions ( hopefully, lol). Bye! πŸ˜€

Meh.

So, I had to watch The Lorax again for a school project. Basically in the project we had to make a unit plan and make it social justice themed. I decided to go with an environmental justice theme. Watching it again as an adult and paying more attention to it, I realized that it is actually a good movie. It is a kid friendly way of showing how quickly the environment can change. It also shows how greed can change a person. Overall, it was a good movie for a children’s animated movie.

This is my last week of school and I am so happy!! I procrastinated way too much this semester. Next semester I will do way better in that department. I am so excited to finally be able to do the things I did not have the time for.

Starting next week, I will be doing movie and book reviews. Maybe I will do TV show reviews too. I am considering writing poetry on here too. If anyone is reading this, let me know if there is anything in particular you want to see or have me review. πŸ˜›

(Just so you know, the images I use on here I find on Google Search. If I ever post any of my own art I will say so πŸ™‚ )

Hello

Hey. I’m new here. The purpose of this blog is to be a sort of public journal. I just want to share my thoughts with whoever is even interested.

A bit about me: I love music, reading, collecting books, art, movies, video games, traveling, and I’m trying to be healthier (mind and body).

I am currently in school and can’t wait for this semester to be over. I’ll be able to focus on the things I want to do. Yay!!! Once school is over, my posts will be focused more on the books and movies I’m reading.

I always read fiction books, but I have been wanting to get out of my comfort zone. So, if you know any good books please comment. I am also on the hunt for a very good horror book that actually scares me. I’ve loved horror since I was little, so at this point I’m numb to it if that makes sense.

Anyways. Hope you have a good day. πŸ˜€
