Graphic Novel February - The Books

Hi everyone! Debi and Chris came up with 'themed' months last year for their reading. February was graphic novels (and their like). When they started talking about doing it again I knew I had to join in! The other night I collected my books, sorry about the bad picture quality, and got very excited to get to many of these! I thought I would share. The pile, from bottom to top, is as follows:

Y: The Last Man - I enjoy this series, but I am behind. I have to figure out where I am in the series, so this follow is just a stand-in until I go back and find my spot.

Fables: Encyclopaedia - I bought this when it came out and have been holding on it... It is even still in its plastic wrap!

Fairest in all the Land - This came out at the end of 2013. I am excited! I was going to read it in January, but I decided to save it for February.

Once Upon a Time Machine - Sadly even comic book short story collections take me forever. I sort of even forgot to read this one after putting it down at one point. I know I will like it. I need to read it!

Fatale: Volume 1 - Death Chases Me - I just have read this because I didn't want to start another series until I caught up in some... And then it got kind of buried on my shelves and there are three sequels if I like it. oops!

The Unwritten - Volume 6, 7, and Tommy Taylor and the Ship That Sank Twice - I got behind in The Unwritten last year!

Saga - Volume 2 - I am kind of shocked I never read this. I just stopped reading graphic novels last year. It's terrible... Though not pictured, I might also reread Volume 1.

Kill Shakespeare - Volume 3 - I got Volume 1 and 2 for Christmas 2012, I believe. I am excited to see what happens next!

A Bunch of Fables - All the Fables are rereads. I am not sure how many I will get through, but this enough for 2 a week or so.

Once Upon a Time - This is a comic based on the show. The art is very pretty. I just got it this month for February.

Nausicaa Volume 1, 2, and 3 - Yeah, another one I meant to read in January a couple times and kept waiting for February... I borrowed them so I need to get cracking!

The Runaways Volume 2 - I haven't rushed right out and read this because my library doesn't carry the series, I don't love it enough to buy it, etc. But, I have this one and should at least read it. It might convince me I enjoy it more? I don't know..


  1. I love your stack! I am so excited for Graphic Novel February! I've been collecting a huge stack of my own to read next month. It's been hard not to start reading.

  2. I keep seeing Fables on blogs and I still have to read them, but they're never available at our library. Ha! One day, surely!

  3. Everyone tells me great things about Nausica, but I haven't see it in any book blog I follow. Looking forward to your thoughts.

  4. My goodness, you should be entertained for a while!

  5. How fun! I hope this will help with your reading doldrums, Kelly.

  6. I'm well behind on The Unwritten too! Every time I go to the library, the volume I need is checked out, so I haven't been able to continue.

  7. Completely off topic but did you see this? http://www.amazon.com/The-Queen-Hearts-Colleen-Oakes/dp/1940716020/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1390850936&sr=8-1&keywords=queen+of+hearts+colleen+oakes. Queen of Hearts is finally on amazon! Though it looks like you may have enough on your reading list without it!

  8. Thank you for reminding me again that I REALLY want to read Fables.

  9. I think you are in for a great time! I like graphic novels but I tend to read only standalones. I'm already way too behind on my mystery series reading :)

  10. I don't read many graphic novels, but I have read a couple of the Fables and really enjoyed them. I should get back to them.

    HOLY COW! That is a massive pile of graphic novels, and they all sound FANTASTIC! I look forward to reading your reviews on these! =)

  12. Okay, you totally know how excited this post makes me, right? :D I had Nausiccaa out of the library a few months back but never got to them...hope you love them, because at least I know I'll be able to get my hands on them when you make me want to read them. I keep forgetting to look for Kill Shakespeare--silly me! I've wanted to try those ever since you first told me about them.
