Andrea

Andrea is a new alumn from Colorado State University. They are most often found reading young adult, science-fiction, or fantasy but they dabble in reading romance as well. Hoping to become a full-time novelist one day, they are re-writing another novel (hopefully this time it sticks) while also working on a graphic novel. When not reading or writing, Andrea is normally training for their next figure skating competition or planning another cosplay.

Another one of those books where I desperately wanted to be a part of the friend group. This series is one I have found a fictional home in. With a plotline that makes you consider what is real and what is not in a world that hides magic, this is a book you will never want to put down. Plus, each and every one of the characters is so wonderful in their own unique ways.

Tokyo Ghoul is a finished manga series for horror and thriller fans. In a world divided by humans and ghouls, Kaneki Ken is the only one who can understand both worlds when he becomes half-human and half-ghoul. This story is about found family, love, tragedy. fitting in, and losing your place. Kaneki is one of the strongest characters I have ever seen and his story is one you won't be able to put down. It has been one of my favorites since I was young and continues to hold a special place in my heart. (Also, if you've seen the anime, it's very different!)

Genuinely one of my favorite manga. The story followers a high schooler that wants to get into art school, breaking away from all previous expectations for him. The considerations of developing your own artistic style and becoming your own person are so heartfelt and beautiful as the anxieties of life are expressed through artistic pieces. The cast of characters are each so unique as both artists and people. HIGHLY recommend.
