Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week it’s all about visuals. The post says comic books, graphic novels, or picture books. I am choosing to interpret it as any book that chooses to forgo the standard just words format and gets a little creative. The last four on my list are going to be graphic novels that I wish to read!
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski – Forever a favourite!
Illuminae Series by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Such a neat way in telling a space story! I need to get my hands on that Sleeping Giants book.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Series by Ransom Riggs – The addition of photos in these books makes the story feel a lot more real.
Me, Earl & the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews – I may be wrong here but I think that this book was told in an interesting way, wasn’t it?
Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix – The addition of IKEA instructions at the beginning of the chapters was genius.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – The illustrations were great in adding to the nature of the story.
Saga by Brian K Vaughan – I’ve been seeing this everywhere for years and I just need to get my hands on them to see what the hype is about!
Mau5 by Art Spiegelman – Always wanted to read this!
Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow – This is what the movie coming out with Scarlett Johannson is based on right?
Blue is the Warmest Color by Julie Maroh – I know there is a movie based on this that people have issues with but they said that the graphic novel was better in a sense.
What’s on your list? Any graphic novels you recommend? I’ve been really wanting to starting reading more of them this year.
