Comics Book Review: Book Love – Debbie Tung

Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Genre: Graphic novel

Review:

I love mangas so it wasn’t a surprise that I also gravitated towards graphic novels. I enjoy the comics posted on Instagram especially those by @loading.artist. So when a friend recommended Book Love to me, a graphic book dedicated to the idiosyncrasies of book dragons, how could I not read it?

If you haven’t read mangas or graphic novels before, the first thing you should know is they’re fast, enjoyable reads. As to how to rate them, I do so on the following three bases:
1 – Quality of drawings
2 – Storyline
3 – Dialogues

For Book Love, it didn’t have a specific storyline but was mostly made up of scenes of the everyday life of a book dragon. There were scenes where I lingered, feeling a certain kinship and affinity to them because I often act that way. The scenes were totally spot on and depicted a book lover’s quirks to perfection. One of my favorite scenes:

The drawings were really good and the dialogue was witty and quirky, perfect to showcase how we book dragons feel about books. In my opinion, every book lover needs a copy of this book.

Blurb: Bookworms rejoice! These charming comics capture exactly what it feels like to be head-over-heels for hardcovers. And paperbacks! And ebooks! And bookstores! And libraries! Book Love is a gift book of comics tailor-made for tea-sipping, spine-sniffing, book-hoarding bibliophiles. Debbie Tung’s comics are humorous and instantly recognizable—making readers laugh while precisely conveying the thoughts and habits of book nerds. Book Love is the ideal gift to let a book lover know they’re understood and appreciated.

I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
