I read a total of 8 books in October, out of which 5 books were graphic novels/manga. October was a pretty hectic month for me and I hardly got any time to read books. I couldn’t read much from my Halloween TBR. I read some pages of IT but the size of the book again intimated me and I ended up choosing graphic novels over such a huge book.
I read the first book in this graphic novel series last year and loved it. I finally got hold of all the books and finished them this month by binge reading them. They are now one of my most favorite graphic novel series of all time. There are totally 6 books, but I got the master edition where each volume is a bind up of 2 books. This is written by Joe Hill, son of Stephen King so I went in with high expectations.
October is Halloween month and right time to read spooky books. Today, I was browsing through my bookshelves and realized that I have hoarded way too many spooky books.
I did this tag in the past and had lot of fun doing it, so I decided I will do it again this year. I have read 59 books so far this year, which is the highest amount I have read in the last few years. 2018 has been an amazing year in terms of reading.
I read 39 comics/graphic novels in 2017 only because I discovered that I could borrow them on my ipad from the library. So whenever I felt down, I would just download few of them on my ipad and zip through them in an hour or so. Graphic novels or comics are great for those times when you are in a reading slump or when you are just tired and don’t have the mental energy to sit and read a book. They are almost like watching TV as you don’t have to use a lot of your brain power to process the information. I love reading comics and I used to read them a lot as a kid.
So here are my favorite comics/graphic novels from 2017 –
I finally finished Dracula after wanting to read it from a long time. I was pretty sure this book would scare the hell out of me and would give me nightmares which was the reason for keeping it as a Halloween read but I couldn’t be more wrong. This book did not scare me one bit.
