It’s all about the pictures with my recent library borrowings. I went a bit graphic novel mad recently, taking advantage of Moreton Bay Libraries’ most excellent graphic novel collection and have requested no less than eight graphic novels to slowly pore over. Here are some of them:
Chief among these is Ben Hatke’s Zita the Spacegirl, which I borrowed to read in preparation for tackling Return of Zita the Spacegirl for my Mount TBR Challenge. Jackie from Death by Tsundoku suggested that I read the first book in the series before trying the third, so I duly took her advice! Look out for reviews of these two later in the week. I also came across a graphic novel by Isombelle Carmody which I couldn’t just leave lying on the shelf. I’m very much looking forward to casting my eyes over Bloody Chester, which is horror Western, and Livingstone: Volume 1, which is a manga featuring souls and untimely death.
I’ve also put a few Kazu Kabiushi titles on hold, one of which is an anthology of graphic novel short stories on the theme of mystery boxes.
Hopefully I’ll be able to get some reviews up for some of these in the not too distant future but if not here, I’ll definitely pop some up on Goodreads, so do make sure you are a friend of the Shelf if you happen to use that platform.
What’s on your library list this month?
Until next time,
