A couple of weeks ago we started doing the 5 On My TBR bookish meme and it was a lot of fun, so we want to bring this meme to the blog more regularly! This bookish meme is hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. This week’s prompt is white covers, but I decided to do last week’s prompt, graphic novels, instead. Let’s take a look!
Saga Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 – Brian K. Vaughan
Saga is a series I’ve seen everywhere online and a lot of people love it. I know Isabelle has read them and enjoyed it. I own the first two volumes and really need to give it a go! I heard it gets pretty emotional. I’m excited to give it a try.
Heartstopper Vol. 3 – Alice Oseman
I read and loved the first two volumes. The only reason I haven’t read this third volume yet is because I don’t want it to be over. Heartstopper really hits in all the feels and I love everything about it.
Shades of Magic Vol. 1: The Steel Prince – V.E. Schwab
This graphic novel takes place before the Shades of Magic trilogy already published. I still need to finish that trilogy and have only read the first book so far. Now I just need to decide if I’m going to finish the trilogy before reading the graphic novels.
Monstress Vol. 1: Awakening – Marjorie M. Liu
Isabelle already read this one and said it was really good. The artwork is stunning and I’m glad I picked up the first volume. This one definitely has more text than most graphic novels, but that’s not a bad thing. Monstress has a darker story, but it sounds really interesting.
Snotgirl Vol. 1: Green Hair Don’t Care – Bryan Lee O’Malley
I have to say that this is still an interesting title, haha. The main character is a fashion blogger (love when main characters are bloggers) and has major allergies. I’ve heard some mixed reviews about this one, but I’m definitely curious. The art is really gorgeous and I love how colorful it is.
I really enjoy graphic novels and I really need to read them this year! Also, I hope to read some more. If you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments! I’m always looking for new ones to read.
