Author: Marjan Satrapi

Summary: The novel traverses over the childhood of Marji up to her early adolescence.

Review: This is a memoir written in Graphic Novel form about the Islamic Revolution. The girl's voice is powerful with the authenticity that only a child can posses.

The wording was very honest and I felt that the author left nothing out. It was very raw and even though it was a graphic novel, it felt real and the pictures only enhanced the story and brought it to life. There were a couple spots where I actually cried because I could imagine being in the authors place. I think everyone should read it. This is a book worth buying.

on vacation

Hey guys! The next few weeks are going to be a little hectic since I am on vacation again. For those who have been following me for more than a year, then you understand my sporadic posts. I thought Id give you all an explanation anyways. Even if I dont post for a month, Im still here. Things should be back to normal (so i hope since itll be my senior year of highschool) by september. I just finished reading The Season and a couple other books. A Curse as Dark as Gold is my next read! Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Song: Hallelujah

Artist: Big Bang

About: This song is the OST for the Korean spy drama "IRIS". I watched the first three episodes, but it was a bit too serious for me. T.O.P from Big Bang plays the role of an asassin which he looks awesome as! (That's kind of the reason why I tried to watch IRIS). T.O.P is the rapper of the group and also my favorite member. The leader is G-Dragon and the other three members are Taeyang, Seungri, and Daesung. I like practically all of their songs and can truly say that they are my favorite band.

MV: *I don't own anything in it*

It has to be Big Bang. :)
