    Did you know Quirk published an original Attack on Titan novel back in 2018 called Garrison Girl? Yup, that’s right! Here at Quirk HQ, we’re quiet but passionate anime fans, occasionally discussing manga at our monthly Comics Club and sometimes found crying over the return of Fruits Basket (the last season is officially here!).

    So with National Anime Day landing on April 15th each year, it’s only natural we combine one of our favorite pastimes with another passion of ours. Yes, we mean books. Whether 1) you’ve watched these anime, read their manga/light novels counterparts, and are looking for a similar written story to jump into or 2) you’re a new anime fan hunting for shows based on a favorite read of yours, give this list a look-see for some TBR and TBW (to-be-watched) inspiration.

    It’s World Party Day and while we’re definitely not going to any parties anytime soon, we can still find creative ways to hang out with our friends – especially when the aim of that hangout is to take things back to mid-2010s book Tumblr, with an IRL twist.

    With National Film Score Day back this April 3rd, film scores are on the mind. Last year we matched movie scores with book recommendations so readers could not only transport themselves via words but via music as well. This year we’re trying something different and imagining which film composers would create fitting OSTs (original soundtracks) for Quirk book adaptations.

    Quirk has had a handful of books adapted for the big screen, most notably Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and 2016’s Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, and there’s even an Amazon TV series in the works for The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires. But what about those that haven't made it to the screen yet?

    Things should be looking up the further we traverse into 2021 and although select locations are opening up to visitors, many factors like historical site visitation hours and international travel are limited and make for a poor vacation season. This can be hard on any age group but especially for younger children who are experiencing what can only be described as a unique school year.

    Now’s a good time to remind young readers that though physical travel may not be an option, one of the best ways to vicariously experience another place, culture, time, or experience is through books, and these select series are great ways for young readers to vacation to another space, even if it’s only virtually.

    The quack attack is back! Disney+ is bringing back the world of The Mighty Ducks with an all new show: The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers. And we are 100% here for it! To celebrate, we’re looking at some of our favorite ‘90s movies – and pairing them with some of our favorite contemporary books. So, without further ado…quack, quack, quack.

    Not too long ago it was pretty easy for indie, foreign, or streamed films to fly under the Oscar radar, but this past year has been, simply put, a weird one, causing major shifts in movie theater releases and a heavy focus on accessible movie streaming. And although this year hasn’t been the kindest, it’s nice to know that movies that historically could have been ignored by the Academy have rightfully earned their place as nominees for the 2021 Oscars.

    To celebrate an odd but fruitful year of film, we’re pairing select Oscars nominees with some book recommendations. If you’ve already buzzed through these movies and are itching for something similar to hold you off until the winners are announced on April 25th, give one of these paired books a go!
