I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a book review for my blog (if ever?). After reading The Rise of Kyoshi though, I knew I needed to take to the blog for my honest thoughts about a book based upon one of the most renowned Avatars in the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra universe. We aren’t presented with the strong and powerful Kyoshi that is revered during Avatar, the Last Airbender. We are forced back in time to the very beginning of Kyoshi’s journey before she even knows that she is the Avatar, serving and befriending the false Avatar Yun. We travel with her on a heartbreaking journey as she discovers her past, her powers, and her true self.
I’m back with another Webtoon recommendation. This time is a little different though. This Webtoon is based on BTS’s Universe/Bangtan Universe (BU) which is an alternate universe of the popular boy band. The characters are named after the seven members and are their alter egos. Stumbling upon this Webtoon after searching for some K-Pop and K-Drama inspired comics has lead me down yet another rabbit hole thanks to my new found interest in K-Pop.
If you’ve lurked around on my blog long enough, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of gore unless it’s Walking Dead (and I think I’ve just been desensitized to it to be honest). If I told you I enjoyed watching Castlevania… you’re probably scratching your head right about now. But let me tell you why someone who turns away at animated blood and hides when a body get sliced in half actually loves this video game adaptation so much.
Y’all I have fallen hard for the Webtoon app. Ever since discovering Lore Olympus, I have been reading tons and tons of comics created for the platform. There’s so many talented creators that I just knew I had to add Webtoons to the Saturday Suggestions! I want to kick this off with one of my favorite Webtoons right now: Lookism.
