Scott Pilgrim

I have yet to read the graphic novels – however I do intend to before the movie hits theaters on August 13th.  While I’m excited to see the movie because I always enjoy seeing movies based upon books/graphic novels (and because of Michael Cera), I have yet to see the trailer advertised anywhere – the television, movie advertisements, etc.. I decided to check out the official site, and not only did I find (and watch) the trailer,  but I also found a link to create your own Scott Pilgrim avatar.  For the fun of it I decided to make my own and they are: Star Gazer, B. Rad, and Lola Moon:

Which one is your favorite?

If you want to make you’re own head over Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and get in on the fun!

Book of the Week: Mirror by Suzy Lee

Mirror by Suzy Lee

Published: Seven Footer Press in 2010

The reasons why I liked this book, and chose it as Book of the Week:

I picked up this book because, honestly, the cover intrigued me.

 I thought this book was simplistic without underestimating the imagination of a child.

Mirror is wordless, but the story translates well from the provided illustrations.

Because it’s wordless children’s have the freedom to make up their own plot, allowing them to be authors in their own, unique way.

The colors used in this book are minimal – black, white, grey, and yellow.

White space is used extremely well to better exemplify the main character looking at her reflection and only her reflection.

In a round about way, I liked how the central theme of the plot was emotions. I liked that because I feel that a book like Mirror is all about emotions, and the kinds of emotions it provokes.

The Fave Game

I’ll be honest my life (and this blog) revolve around books. I’ve read a lot, and have formed opinions about which books I absolutely love, and which ones I absolutely strongly disliked.  After thinking about this for a while, I decided that I wanted to start a weekly feature on The BookBandit. Once a week (Mondays) I will post either a children’s or young adult book that I liked. It will be the Book of the Week. This will NOT be a review, but simply a brief explanation of why I liked the book, why I chose to read it, etc..

So be sure to check back weekly to see what the book of the week is.
