When you’ve been on an unintentional book-reading hiatus for as long as I have, getting back into the habit can be difficult. A novel that I could have finished in a single sitting now seems like an absolute chore.
So for this holiday season, to get my groove back, I’m restarting out easy. Saga, written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples, is a comic book series about star-crossed lovers struggling to keep their family together in the midst of an ongoing war between their races. Each chapter ends in a cliffhanger that forces you to continue reading and it’s funny despite the heavy themes the story dances around. What’s more Christmas-y than a family trying to keep it together in space?
P.S. Shout out to Cheer Reader Cake for recommending Saga in one of our #BoookbedMeets! ☁️
