The good ol' times are back!

Status: Jem and The Holograms Vol. 1
Author: Kelly Thompson, Sophie Campbell

General Thoughts: Light fluffy reads, I love.
Rating: 3.5/5 stars.


Jem and the Holograms is a story of dreams, finding your true self and having fun along the way! We meet our four heroins, who are just about to make their dreams of becoming super stars true, if only Jerrica could bring herself to sing. But just as they were loosing hope, they find a strange machine, that might help them in unexpected ways.

Man, this book was so much fun!

Ok, confesion time has arrived...I've never seen the TV show this is based on and only found out about it thanks to this!..

I know, most people loved this show when little and think that this graphic novel is such a waste of times because the show was so much better and this isn't adding anything new... but I'm new to this, so this is my side of the story.

First of all, the illustrations were soooo prettyyyy and colorful! This is the brightest palete of colors I've seen in a graphic novel. And I loved it. All the hair and costumes and colors and music tunes got me completely hooked and hallucinating!

The story itself was really light, nothing deep, really fun things happening all around. I really didn't even bother to see the not so well done things happening around (except the "ok cool, a machine that it's better than the world, all good" thing) because the story was really fun and I couldn't take it too seriously.

I loved that it had so much diversity in such a simple way. And that there literally was no conflict about any of it.

This novel felt like a 90's show. And I know it's kind of dumb to point that out, but it really felt like those old shows I used to watch when I was little. Except that social media was all over the place.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this novel, really recommend, read it, even if you watched the TV show when little. Good all the same.

Small disclaimer section.

Due to it being an ARC, I won't put the first lines.

I received this copy in exchange of an honest review, for so, none of my feelings were affected or biased by the author or publisher.
