What Am I Reading On Mondays – Graphic Comics Ahoy

 

A weekly event hosted by J. Kaye’s Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

 

Books I completed this week are:

Evolution – Carol Lynne  ( Series)

Lovers, Dreamers, and Me - Willa Okati

Broken – Dawn Kimberly Johnson

Midnight Cove - Cierra James

She’s Got Balls – Mia Watts

Uncorked – Andrew Grey

The Nest – G.S. Wiley

Never Say Never – Jenna Byrnes

Take it Easy – AKM Miles

 

This week the beasties and I had a library day, normally when I go in I head straight for the fantasy section or speculative fiction but this week I checked out some graphic comic and I am very pleased I did.

I love Graphic comic but haven’t been reading as much of them as I normally did for about a year now. North Wind was particularly good and Othello was as always a massive hit with me..

I will do a review on them – It was like looking at them with fresh eyes –from the drawings to the colouring to the actually story line – A good week in reading for me.

 

Graphic Comic - Tomb Raider – The Merlin stone – Titan Books

Graphic Comic -North Wind –David Digilio

Graphic Comic - William Shakespeare – Othello – Ravette Books

Graphic Comic - Red Prophet – Tales of Alvin Maker – Orson Scott Card

 

 


Books I am currently reading

I am reading a self pub book  – the Jade Owl, it is a big book but I am so impressed by it already…  Cover work is absolutely stunning. Love the fact that it’s different – it’s actual art rather than Photoshop.

Rapunzel’s Revenge –how could I leave a book like that in the library – last I knew Rapunzel was trying to get out of the tower with her hair all over the place…

The Jade Owl – Edward C. Patterson

Graphic Comic - Rapunzel’s Revenge – Shannon and Dean Hale

 

 

 

Hoping to get through this week

Dragon Storm, Bk6 – Bianca D’arc (Still on the list after two weeks)

Betrayal - Kim Amburn

Their Lover - Barbara Sheridan

 

My most anticipated book of the week is

 

Thomas Riley

Nick Valentino

Genre: Steampunk

For more than twenty years West Canvia and Lemuria have battled one another in a constant war.

From the safety of his laboratory, weapons designer Thomas Riley has cleverly and proudly empowered the West Canvian forces with his brilliant designs. But when a risky alchemy experiment goes horribly wrong, Thomas and his wily assistant, Cynthia Bassett, are thrust onto the front lines of battle.

Forced into shaky alliances with murderous sky pirates in a deadly race to kidnap the only man who can undo the damage—the mad genius behind Lemuria's cunning armaments—Thomas' own genius is put to the ultimate test.

I bought Pride & Prejudice (Marvel edition) for a Christmas gift for my daughter last weekend. Found it and B&N. I suppose it's not considered a graphic novel but it's illustrated and the cover actually looks more like a teen magazine. Wish I could take a look inside but it's shrink-wrapped in plastic. She's a fan of all things P&P so I think she'll like it.

Wait, now that I look at the back cover it calls it a "graphic classic". Cute : )

Have a great week!

You already finished 'Never Say Never' I see. That one's definitely on my TBB list!
I'm looking forward to all your reviews.
Have a Happy reading week!

OMG 9 books in a week, that is awesome!! I'm yet to read a graphic novel, I was going to start on one of Neil Gaiman's.
