AS I AM NOW CO-HOSTING EXPLORING MY BOOKS WITH ADDLEPATES AND BOOK NERDS, OUR TOPIC THIS WEEK IS
Graphic novels & Manga.
Before I get into the topic, in case you didn’t notice, I rearranged my books again. I bought a desk, the first one I’ve had in over a year which caused me to displace a lot of my novels. Most of the paperbacks were removed to be triple stacked on the shelf in my closet, and a bunch of my favorites were moved to the other side of my bedroom.
While I do own quite a few manga novels, I want to showcase a graphic novel that is absolutely wonderful, and that is The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I read this book for a college course on globalization and it stuck with me. It shows the reader what it is like to move to a new land with varied customs and traditions. I absolutely recommend it.
Which graphic novels do you own?
To participate in the Exploring Your Bookshelf meme hosted by Addlepates and Bookworms and myself, here’s what you do:
- Post a picture of your bookshelf (preferably literal, but e-shelves work too).
- We’ll give you something about your shelf to write about. It might be your favourite cover, your favourite author, your book you most recently bought etc.
- Then give us the blurb and the cover of the book (and what you thought of it if you’ve read it)
- And finally, come back to one of our posts and send us a link! We promise to check out all of your posts!
