This Week’s Theme:
Favourite Visual Stories

Initial Thoughts:

Younger me was huge on visual books. Maybe even now too. There’s something special about visual stories — be it comics or mangas or picture books — that makes reading that much easier to digest.

[Top Ten Tuesday] – #57 – Top Ten Favourite Authors/Mangakas

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.

This Week’s Theme:
Top Ten Favourite Authors/Mangakas

Initial Thoughts:

I’ve split this list to include authors of books and manga simply Book authors are cool but I can’t forget all the manga/anime that have been a pretty big part of my life (even if I read it sporadically and am super behind). I might not have caught up with every author/artist and their respective works but I do appreciate them enough to give them a shout-out.

Insist I Should Read

Initial Thoughts:

The easiest copout of a list would have been in reference to last week’s theme [Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read] as they’re both almost the same topic (and I kind of do just that). This list contains content that I’ll probably end up reading/not reading despite all the hype and insistence.

But let’s take things back a second. A kind reminder that as much as you may love a book, over-hyping a book or series as the best read ever (or such variant) sometimes can detract one’s the willingness to read it and also sets the bar so high that even if it is good it may (or may not) be on the same perceivable level of good as the individual who recommended it. Then, it can be that the hype-r feels the “I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it as much as I did” (and hopefully not to the extreme of questioning the readers intelligence in reading–but I’mma just stop right there). Alternatively, the hype-e themselves can feel bad for not liking it as much as the one who recommended it and even though everyone can like/dislike what they enjoy–the fact that hype seemingly affects the read going forward is just derpy. That’s just my two cents–I know it’s all advertising in the end but just saying that books can often live and die with hype (or at least I think so anyways).

All book cover images link up to their respective Goodreads while the Manga’s don’t link up to anything at all.
