books read in April

Wow, this is embarrassing. The story here is that I have two adult books I am currently in the middle of. I’m still working on Silence of the Lambs and then a week ago Dead Wake arrived for me so I dropped everything to read that, only to find myself losing interest and going back to Lambs. But not quick enough to finish it before April 30! So my “read” list for April is kind of sad. But at least the two books I did finish were fantastic!

El DeafoEl Deafo by Cece Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this graphic novel memoir about Cece Bell’s hearing loss as a child. Even if you have perfect hearing, you can relate to Bell’s story, her nervousness about trying to fit in, about not wanting people to treat her differently and managing friendships and relationships in middle school. Her art style is wonderful, and it made me feel like I was reading a journal she may have kept as a child.

Quick read and LOTS of fun! Kamala is such a great character, fantastic heroine, a perfect addition to the MARVEL line-up. Cannot wait to read the next collection!
