Weekly Wrap-Up: Graphic Novel Overload!

What's New:
Not a whole lot! I'm enjoying not having any homework, and ignoring the few school related things I need to accomplish over the summer in the hopes that they will go away (they won't). I'm trying to get myself to read more, but it seems I'm always busy even though I'm not doing anything! But I got a large stack of graphic novels from the library (more on those below) so I'm hoping I will wiz through those.

What I Got from the Library:
I went on a graphic novel spree at my library this week! I'm hoping to read some to catch up on my reading challenge, and I have been waiting for Summer so I could use my hometown library again. So, here's what I picked up and will be reading and reviewing very soon.

Ms. Marvel Vol 1: No Normal by Wilson Alphona

Vincent by Barbara Stok 

Jane, the Fox, and Me by Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault

Wonder Woman Vol 1: Blood by Brian Azzarello, Cliff Chiang, and Tony Akins

Kill My Mother by Jules Feiffer

The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson

What I Posted:
Monday- I reviewed Maas' new novel A Court of Thorns and Roses
Tuesday- I shared Ten Books From my Beach Bag
Wednesday- I asked for your opinion on the things in my Amazon Cart
Thursday- I posted another installment in my Literary Look Series, this one on European Romanticism

Last Week's Wrap-Up

What's Next: 
Lots of graphic novel reviews! That shouldn't be a surprise! Then, I would love to do more Literary Look Posts, now that I have the time to put them together, and I'm thinking about starting a new series where I showcase some of my favorite old editions of books I own; what do you guys think?

  6. Love graphic novels, and always happy to see reviews of good ones. There's so much out there right now. Your showcase idea is a good one.

    Nice post on Romanticism- I learned a few things. :) And I've always wanted to read Count of Monte cristo as well- like another commenter said, it's huge and a time commitment, but I've never read it and would really like to one of these days.
