5 On My TBR – Graphic Novels

5 On My TBR Graphic Novels

Hello Everyone!

5 on my TBR is a weekly meme that’s hosted by Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. Each Monday, there’s a different prompt, and the goal is to list five books on your TBR that fit into the prompt.

This week’s 5 on my TBR prompt is Graphic Novels. I’ve been slowly getting into graphic novels, and they keep jumping onto my TBR. I also really miss being able to go to my local comic book store and browsing, because I’ve discovered some great series that way. 

Fables by Bill Willingham – I discovered this series on one of my many trips to browse my local comic book store. The best way to describe this series is that it has a similar idea to the TV show Once Upon a Time (I haven’t watched OUAT, and this series came out before OUAT). It features a bunch of fairy tale characters who have been exiled and have set up a community in New York. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s a long series. I still need to finish this series, and I eventually want to get to all of the spinoff series.

Fence by C.S. Pascat – I’ve seen this one floating around Bookstagram for a while, and I desperately want to read it. I know absolutely nothing about fencing, and I’m not very into sports, but this series looks like a lot of fun. This series might end up on my February TBR because I ordered it with my Christmas gift cards, and I’m impatiently waiting for it to arrive.

Check, Please! by Ngozi UkazuThis is another series that I’ve seen floating around on Bookstagram that I’ve decided that I need in my life. Once again, I am not a sports person, but, as a Canadian, I do appreciate a good hockey game. I don’t know much about this series, but I know it involves some romance and friendship, which I usually enjoy. It looks like this series is a duology, and I might try to pick it up once the comic book store is allowed to open up again.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North – Generally, I’m not into superheroes, but I adore this series. I picked up the first book after it was mentioned in a book that I was reading, and I fell in love with it. Squirrel Girl is such a fun character, and every time I pick up one of the books in this series, I can’t help but smile. So far, I’ve only read the first couple of volumes, and the rest of the series is on my TBR.

Cheshire Crossing by Andy WeirI don’t remember how I heard about this book, but it sounds amazing. This book features Dorothy, Alice, and Wendy attending a boarding school where girls are sent to cope with their supernatural powers. The Goodreads description mentions The Wicked Witch, Hook, and a deadly supervillain love match, which sounds fantastic. I will say that I’m a bit nervous about this one because I’ve seen many mixed reviews for it, but when I get to it, I’m going to go in with an open mind.
