Oh, dear, it must be Monday because I spent a nice chunk of time Saturday preparing this post and in one swift motion this morning I managed to delete it. I am not actually sure how, but it is irretrievable. Gah! I have no idea what I wrote. I am pretty sure I said something about being sick and hitting a reading slump. Oh! Wait. I remember. I recently took over ordering and maintaining the Adult Graphic Novel collection here at the library so I combined my goal of getting to know the collection better with my overall 2015 reading goal and came up with the number 225. I am going to be reading a lot of graphic novels this year! Also, I decided to try my hand at Tumblr. It’s a work in progress, but you can check it out at ya-why-not.
I have 2 weeks worth of reading to report on!
- Girls Like Us by Gail Giles-This is a Cybils Finalist. It’s all very hush, hush for now.
- Princess Decomposia and Count Spatula by Andi Watson-What a cute YA graphic novel. Coming-of-age, romance, and the undead.
- Trillium by Jeff Lemire-A super trippy sci-fi standalone from the author of the Sweet Tooth series.
- The Ticking by Renée French-A strange little graphic novel with very few words. The story of the a boy with facial deformities is told mostly through weird but lovely black and white pencil drawings.
- When I was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds-Another Cybils Finalist.
- Stitches by David Small-A graphic memoir, fitting from YA and Adult readers. Loved it.
- Revival by Stephen King-Not my favorite from King, but a solid character study with a bizarre ending.
- Gabi, A Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero-Yet another Cybils Finalist.
- The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion. This follow-up to The Rosie Project has been heavily criticized, but I am still enjoying the audio. It is early in the book, but so far no complaints.
I still need to pick a new YA, but I have so many choices! I can’t decide.
It’s not bad, but I just didn’t care.
