Review: I adored Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert’s Story and being a massive booklover Debbie Tung’s Book Love promised a combination of everything I liked in her storytelling and art.
Just a side note; as I know follow the author on social media, I did see repeats of previous panels but this is a bookworm collection so that didn’t bother me.
Debbie Tung reflects a lot of my personal experience, this was reflected in Quiet Girl in a Noisy World and is again evident in Book Love. As such it’s hard to be objective when the book in front of me basically feels like and instant friend.
Book Love is cute and charming on the surface for the bookish person, however it also has a deeper layer underneath. For a lot of people books help us. This is explored a lot. As are how important books are to learning and understand the world and people around you.
