    Originally posted on my blog, Book-o-Craze! ~~~ I would like to thank the publisher and NetGalley for providing a free copy for me to read in exchange for an honest review. This graphic novel might have been a little darker than I had originally anticipated (although, I am n...

    Engaging premise and setting, but a deeply unsatisfying ending. (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC through NetGalley. Trigger warning for ableist language directed at the circus "freaks".) Twin sisters Anna and Kat are performers in the Samson Brothers Circus: Anna tells f...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley This was an interesting concept with some interesting characters, although it seemed to end rather abruptly and is 20 pages shorter than the page count here. I think my ARC copy might be missing some pages at the end because otherwi...

    I received a copy of Spectacle Vol. 1 from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. Spectacle is by Megan Rose Gedris, though it isn?t her first graphic novel by any means. Yu+Me is probably her most famous work, but she?s also done works such as I Was Kidnapped by ...

    This was an enjoyable read. I always love a murder mystery and a circus story. The art is gorgeous, and it definitely breaks the boundaries of comics/graphic novels. The lack of resolution at the ending was not my cup of tea - it felt like it ended in the middle of an issue. I'm all fo...

    Bit of a slow starter but about a third of the way in, I was hooked! An intriguing and very different setting and the traveling train circus was fun to follow. Wish that our MC hadn?t been as derogatory towards tarot cards as she was, even though I know it?s to contrast her belief ...

    I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Just stand here for ten minutes to say I did, and then I can go read my book. This story is about twin sisters who work in a circus together, and there's so much to unpack. One of the twins, Anna, pretends to r...

    At first, I wasn?t a fan of the drawings in Spectacle but I grew to like them as I read. Interesting premise, Anna?s twin sister is murdered and she tries to find the murderer. The ending was weird because it felt like it was shortly. I enjoyed it enough. ...

    This hasn't happened to me in a really long time, but I just... don't know how I feel about this. I loved the art in this graphic nove. It was beautiful! But the plot kind of confused me. The villain didn't really seem like the villain, and nothing was really done about it. I love ...

    Hey, look! It's another graphic novel review! And it's another graphic novel that I requested from Netgalley! Except this graphic novel is so much different than to what I normally read in graphic novel format, and it definitely has a different artwork style than to what I'm used to. B...

    Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this unique graphic novel! When I first read the synopsis for this, I was very intrigued. Circus themed settings are one of my favourite kinds, add in a murder mystery plot and I am sold. I really enjoyed this sho...

    Graphic Novels are becoming more and more of a fave for me. I hardly ever read them before, but I have SUCH a thing for art, and combining that with my love of stories is perfect. I piked this one up on a whim, PURELY because of that gorgeous cover art. It promised me an intriguing mur...

    I really enjoyed reading Spectacle and flew through it. The art work is great and I loved the colors that were used. The art is very colorful and that fits the circus theme very well. This graphic novel has an incredibly diverse cast and a lot of interesting characters. Kat and Anna a...

    I found this to be quirky, funny and entertaining. It is unlike anything I have read before. Set in a circus - not your typical circus where there are people who are unique and a murder occurred. I am looking foward to reading voume 2 to see where it goes as this volume finished on a c...

    ? 3 Stars ? Very odd, in the most delicious way! It moved a little slowly in the beginning and it took even longer to warm up to the artwork. As the pace began to pick up, the characters, story, and artwork grew on me and I was thirsty for more. I really enjoyed the mystery...

    Okay, I started reading this book did not expect much because somehow books with circus or carnaval theme never really made me in love. Same with this book, I did not love it, I enjoyed this graphic novel, but whyyyy it ended there? I feel like it would be much better if they actually...
