Webtoon has taken over my life.

So I made the mistake of getting into Lore Olympus towards the end of the summer. A couple of friends had mentioned pulling together a cosplay group and wondered if I’d be interested, and so like a fool I went ahead and started something that my group chat were in love with.

Unsurprisingly it was a hit. I was instantly in love with the comic and devoured all the available chapters in just under 48hrs, but once I was finished I desperately wanted more. For those who haven’t used Webtoon before you can buy early access to chapters using coins, but I’m strictly opposed to in-app purchased and so that wasn’t happening. This is where my love got slightly out of control. Lore Olympus is the weed of Webtoon, the gateway drug into a land filled with weekly updated comics, and there’s just so many fabulous ones to choose from.

I start reading Webtoon before I’ve even made my first cup of tea in the morning, I open up the app to check which comics have been updated and read the chapters instantly. Webtoon is bringing me romance in graphic form, and some of my faves are definitely ones I didn’t expect to love. It’s also been the thing that has been pulling me away from my to be read recently (usually this is a job for fanfiction), so I figured that I may as well get some content out of it. Yep, this is a list post with a reeeally long lead in…anyway here are a few of my fave Webtoons of the moment!

Review: Check, Please! by Ngozi Ukazu

Series: Check, Please! web comic
Goodreads: Vol. 1 | Vol. 2
Publisher: First Second Books
Book Depository

Synopsis:

Helloooo, Internet Land. Bitty here!

Y’all… I might not be ready for this. I may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It’s nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There’s checking. And then, there is Jack—our very attractive but moody captain.

Check, Please!: #Hockey is the first book of a hilarious and stirring two-volume coming-of-age story about hockey, bros, and trying to find yourself during the best four years of your life.

Review: Did I read this whole web comic in two days? Yes. Do I have any regrets? Absolutely not.
I stumbled across this wonderful little comic on amazon and ended up slipping onto the buy now button, so now I have volume one of this Ice Hockey romance on my kindle. Then I discovered that the whole thing is online and immediately devoured the rest, and so I’m going to try my best to review both volumes in one!

Pub Date: October 15th
Goodreads: Mooncakes
Publisher: Lion Forge
Book Depository
Synopsis:

A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft.

Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.

One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.

Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.

Review:
I received this book from Netgalley and Lion Forge in exchanged for an honest review!

Ah just thinking about this graphic novel makes me feel happy. Mooncakes is so wholesome and filled to the brim with love, it was just what I needed after reading so many books that are part of long trilogies. It was nice to read something so easy and enjoyable, and I’ve definitely read more since picking it up. It’ just so wonderful to read something that includes so many diverse characters, and gives them the happy ending that after reading you’ll inevitably want for them.
