Earlier this week I was tagged by theorangutanlibrarian to do this Ben and Jerry Book Tag. I wasn’t sure if I was up to the task or not but it seemed like a fun idea, so I thought I’d try it. 🙂 I decided to keep my answers in theme with my blog which is primarily dedicated to comics, manga, and the like. This is my first time doing something like this but hopefully I understand how to do it right… you’ll have to let me know if I screwed it up.
VANILLA CARAMEL FUDGE: PICK A LIGHT, FLUFFY CONTEMPORARY
Love★Com, Vol. 1 by Aya Nakahara – The often amusing misadventures and eventual romance of a tall girl and a short boy. Contemporaries aren’t my go to genre but this one is a favorite for it’s humor and sweetness.
MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIE: A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU WISH EVERYBODY WOULD READ
Grayson, Vol 1: Agents of Spyral by Tom King, Tim Seeley – Spinning out of events in Batman Inc. and Forever Evil this volume marks a turning point in the direction of the life of the original Robin. Dick Grayson is my favorite character and I’ve followed him through thick and thin. This newest chapter in Grayson’s story has been growing on me as it progresses.
CHERRY GARCIA: AN ENDING THAT WAS BITTERSWEET
The Sandman, Vol. 10: The Wake by Neil Gaiman – Oh, so bittersweet and strange. Do dreams die? The last collected volume of the original Sandan run. This masterpiece will need to be read from beginning to end to be fully appreciated.
STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE: A BOOK CONTAINING YOUR OTP OF OTPS
Fushigi Yûgi: The Mysterious Play, Vol. 01: Priestess by Yuu Watase – This was a hard decision but the epic love story of Miaka and Tamahome is among one of my most beloved One True Pairings. This is also one of the first manga that I can remember ever reading.
MILK AND COOKIES: TWO AUTHORS THAT IF THEY COLLABORATED, THEY WOULD GO PERFECTLY TOGETHER
Geoff Johns and Ed Brubaker – Both of these guys have done fantastic work breathing new life into old characters. I don’t know if these guys have ever worked together or not.
BOSTON CREAM PIE: A BOOK THAT HAD YOU TURNING YOUR PAGES LATE INTO THE NIGHT
Forever Evil by Geoff Johns, David Finch, Richard Friend – This was the story that promised the final fate of Dick Grayson. I hung on pins and needles for fear that my favorite character would be killed off in this storyline.
CHOCOLATE THERAPY: A BOOK THAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER AFTER A LONG DAY OF LIFE
Legendary Star-Lord, Vol. 1: Face It, I Rule by Sam Humphries, Paco Medina – The height of escapist fiction and it doesn’t hurt that the storylines include my favorite Marvel character Kitty Pryde.
COFFEE, COFFEE, BUZZBUZZBUZZ!: A BOOK NOT YET RELEASED THAT YOU CAN’T WAIT TO GET YOUR HANDS ON
Grayson, Vol 2: We All Die At Dawn by Tom King, Tim Seeley, Mikel Janin, Steven Mooney – The second volume of my beloved Grayson will be released soon. I can’t wait to read it!
Well that’s it! 🙂 I know I’m supposed to tag others at the end of this but my blogs pretty new and I don’t have many followers yet — but if anyone wants to take up the challenge please feel free
