Graphic Novel Review: ‘Spill Zone’ & ‘The Broken Vow’

While I have read my fair share of manga, I will admit I haven’t read too many America/European graphic novels, but when I saw my favorite author Scott Westerfeld was a part of this, I knew I had to pick it up – and I loved it! (If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, I think you’ll enjoy this series!)

Movie Review: ‘The Hate U Give’

The Hate U Give (THUG) is in theaters everywhere now! The movie was released on October 19th, 2018, and in selected theaters prior to that.

To see our book review of The Hate U Give, click here! This is a review of the movie, my thoughts, and comparing it to the book. No major spoilers will be in this review! I talk about a few points, but nothing that gives away anything major from the plot.

THUG is such an important movie. I am really hoping it does well at the box office, gets the recognition it deserves, and gets nominated for awards – the world needs to see and hear this.

If you haven’t read The Hate U Give novel, I would be curious to hear what you thought of the movie, so please leave a comment below.

I will say this adaptation was pretty accurate to the book. No book to movie adaptation will ever be exact – but this was pretty close and I loved it.

Audiobook Review: ‘The Hate U Give’

“The Hate U—the letter U—Give Little Infants Fucks Everybody. T-H-U-G L-I-F-E.”

If you only read one book this year, let it be The Hate U Give. This is a book everyone needs to read. I only waited this long to read it because I wanted to read it right before seeing the movie! This book isn’t just a work of fiction – this is real life.
