BookRiot on Blame This on the Boogie

“Graphic Memoirs and Novels That I'm Excited About Right Now” / BookRiot / Jaime Herndon / November 6, 2018

I didn’t expect to love this as much as I did, to be honest. Spanning several decades, it’s a lushly-illustrated book that tells Ayuyang’s story of growing up Filipino American, and then her journey into parenthood and PPD, all set to the backdrop of musicals, and eventually, Dancing With the Stars and its fandom. Her art is absolutely gorgeous, and her writing made me laugh and think, especially about my own parenthood journey. Although the book is nearly 200 pages, when I finished it, I wished it had been even longer.
