Saga Volume 2 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples | A quick & enjoyable read…but did anything really happen?

Saga vol 2

I have been saving this graphic novel for AGES.

I bought it a while ago, intending to read it when I read Dragonfly in Amber, so that when the huge book took me longer to get through, I’d have a quick one to keep me on track with my reading goal.

Well, turns out I didn’t need to do that. So this book was still waiting for me to read it. And finally, I decided to do just that.

I don’t know how long this review will be. I’m not too great at reviewing graphic novels, since they’re very much more about the art than the words…but I’ll try. It just might be a bit shorter than my usual reviews.

April Book Haul – So Much For That Book Buying Ban!

April haul

At the start of the month I said to myself “I’m on a book buying ban for April because I’ve gotten so many books since December.”

As time went on, I realized one of my most anticipated releases came out at the end of the month. So this went from no books to “I’ll make an exception for THAT ONE BOOK.”

And then April actually started and I ended up getting 6 books. And a half. Kind of (you’ll see what I mean).

So here’s my failed book buying ban – otherwise known as a haul!

The Walking Dead Volume 1: Days Gone Bye

Walking Dead 1

*All reviews are spoiler free*

Since it felt like it took me a while to reread A Darker Shade of Magic, I decided to pick up a graphic novel – this one being The Walking Dead.

Now, I don’t watch TV that often, so I’ve not seen the The Walking Dead TV series. All I know is that it’s quite popular, to say the least. And since I’ve been getting into graphic novels lately, I decided to go about learning the story this way.

I’m not too great at reviewing graphic novels yet, I find it quite difficult since they’re so short, so please bare with me!

So let’s talk about The Walking Dead!

The Walking Dead Vol 1

Author: Robert Kirkman & Tony Moore

Publisher: Image Comics

Series Status: The 1st in a series

Number of Pages: 134 (approximately)

My Rating: 3.5/5 stars!

January Book Haul

January Book Haul

Already this month I’ve gotten a few books, and since I doubt I’ll get any more this month, I’m here doing my January book haul!

And even if I do end up getting more books, I’ll add them to my February book haul – and there will definitely be one next month because it’s my birthday in February 😀

Once again I apologize for the photos not being great. My phone camera isn’t the best but I’m working on it.

But anyway, on with the book haul!

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Nimona

Since Outlander is taking me a while to finish due to the sheer size of it (over 800 pages), I decided to read Nimona last night so that I would be able to upload a review this week. Since it’s a graphic novel it didn’t take me long to read at all, and I’ve been wanting to read this one for a while now. And I thought it’d be good to mix up my reading options a bit and add another graphic novel post to my blog!

This review may be slightly sorter than my usual ones, since it’s for a graphic novel.

So instead of rambling, let’s get to it!

Title: Nimona

Author: Noelle Stevenson

Number of Pages: 256 + 8 bonus pages

Here are my 10 bookish resolutions for 2016!

The Wicked and The Divine Volumes 1 & 2

This is my first review for a graphic novel! I’ve been gradually getting into them but still only have a few. I recently received Volume 2 of The Wicked and The Divine as an unexpected gift, so I decided to reread Volume 1 before going onto the second, and review them both here. Since they’re graphic novels the review will probably be shorter, but I’ll be reviewing both volumes in this one post.

Hope you enjoy!
