Graphic novels aren’t the typical books I read. I used to read a fair amount of comics when I was younger, mostly because Kris was really into them.
I’ve always wanted to read more graphic novels, but I rarely do because they’re more on the expensive side and they never take me too long to read. So, I always end up getting novels than graphic novels.
But I love a good one every now and then and, as you all know, I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump lately.
The other day Kris and I went to the bookstore and she was in the mood to buy. And when I say buy, I mean buy a lot. Then again, I also had $50 in gift cards so we went a little nuts.
There are always a lot of graphic novels I want to buy whenever we go to the bookstore. There are a ton of series I want to read, most being superheroes that I don’t know where to start since there are so many different versions.
So, what exactly did we buy?
We ended up buying four manga books and two graphic novels. We bought the third volume of Archie, the first volume of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the first and second volumes of the original Pokemon manga, volume one of Ninja Turtles Universe, and The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords (which is technically the fifth volume).
I also wanted to get the first volume of Ouran High School Host Club and Fruits Basket, but we figured we’d stop at $100. We could have gone on and on and on… We could have gotten Batman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, etc. The list goes on.
I think reading these will help me get out of a slump and get me back into reading great stories again. I can’t wait to give them a shot and buy the next volumes in all the series.
