Unexpected Blessings by Roxanne Black


unexpected blessings

“I laughed, I cried – a must read for anyone suffering from a chronic illness or who knows someone who has one.  

Unlike most other books written from a more clinical perspective, the author shows us the emotional side of living life with a disease for which there is no cure, along with all the associated ups and downs. The author presents her experiences in a very positive, upbeat manner despite bumps along the way – you’ll be blessed by reading it!”

Azumanga Daioh by Kiyohiko Azuma



This 4 volume manga series is a wacky tale of a group of girls who go through high school together.  Downright hilarious and just plain strange at times, this is a must read for graphic novel lovers.


Also read Yotsuba &, by the same author, a funny tale of a strange girl with green hair who has  an irrational fear of air conditioners, among other things.  She lives with her father and makes her neighbors’ lives much more interesting.  Currently up to 9 volumes.
