I am so excited! In today’s post, I have pestered my best friend to send in his thoughts about a book which he recently got on his birthday. This is his take on why you should read Maus—a graphic novel by American cartoonist, Art Spiegelman. Now without any further blabbering, let’s dive in!

Ever thought how a confession can turn your life around? Especially when you write it in a notebook and hand it over for a stranger to write theirs and pass on? This book is pretty much right when it boasts as the “feel-good book of the year” with flawed but lovable characters. Here is why you should pick this for your next read.
Why on earth did I not come across this story before? I am subscribed to 8 webcomics on Webtoon and stumbling upon Heartstopperwas purely by chance. I have seen the books on Goodreads and Amazon but never guessed that it was freely available on Webtoon. I started reading and couldn’t stop until I reached the end of Volume 3 within 24 hours.
