On Not Feeling the Book Love

So it turns out that my reading rut is more of a reading funk! I am not totally in love with a book right now. You know what kind of love I am talking about? The kind where the daily business of your life is annoying because it is keeping you from the enjoying your amazing book. The kind of book love that keeps you up way past your bedtime, but who cares because you absolutely must keep reading. Yeah. That kind of book love. I don’t have it. I miss it. But I think there is too much going on right now for me to focus. Therefore, until further notice, I am only reading books with pictures in them. I will also be reading comic books. Here is my new TBR pile:

Robot Dreams by Sara Varon

This graphic novel HAS NO WORDS! Yes, please.




Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick

This is from the author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret so it is sure to be a treat.

Here is an interesting tidbit: this book is huge! It is over 600 pages long and weighs almost 3lbs (2lbs, 14.8 oz to be exact).


 The Plain Janes by Cecil Castelluci

I think I want to give this to my book club, so I am rereading it just to make sure.



Fables: Legends in Exile by Bill Willingham

This is the first volume in a new adult graphic novel series. It comes highly recommend, and it is a book with pictures, so it’s going home with me today.



I am also taking the new Batgirl comic, a Deadpool comic, and the new Justice League comic and I am waiting for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic. Heroes in a half-shell!

Happy Reading!
