Here is one thing or maybe I should say two things, that will keep you from being bored. I have recently decided to try making a graphic novel, but I have no experience in it, and very little drawing experience. I have been teaching myself how to draw. But, I figured out what better way to learn to write graphic novels, than by reading them.
I got this from the library using the Libby app. I loved Richelle Mead’s Succubus series, and I am a huge vampire fan, so this seemed like the logical choice to start with. It is also Pride month for LGTBQ and this series fits quite nicely with that topic.
This is from the book series, which I have not read yet, but I plan on it. Two girls are best friends, with a little love interest going. One of them has a special power that needs to be hidden, and the other one is sworn to protect her. Thanks to some friends and the academy they find out who was after them.
I love this story, it has a little bit of everything. Love issues, hot guys and hot girls, mysteries, and a great twist at the end. I like to think of graphic novels as short stories with pictures to help convey the story. It was a quick read and I am hoping to read some more of them.
The pictures themselves were beautifully drawn. I should warn you, if you do not like the site of blood, you might want to read the book instead. That is how spot on these drawings are.
My question for you all….do you consider graphic novels as a book? I mean if you were to use goodreads would you add it to your list of read books? If not, I would love to know why, please let me know in the comments. Thanks!
Peace and luv, Renee
