Hi friends! I have read a few graphic novels – and really enjoyed them – but haven’t even begun to scratch the surface on the great stories that exist in the world. Since I already wrote a post about picture books during a freebie week, I thought I’d list some graphic novels that I want to read in the not too distant future. Let me know what I should add to the list and/or which of these I should make sure to read first in the comments.
Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme!

Anya’s Ghost sounds interesting. I will need to look into it.
Yeah! I love the cover of that one!
I didn’t know there were Babysitters Club GN’s, that’s kinda cool. and Hark! a Vagrant looks fun. I’ve seen that one before somewhere…
Yeah! My students are obsessed with the Babysitters Club graphic novel. They didn’t know there was another version. So funny to me!
I feel like children’s and graphic novels are two book-genres I am woefully under read. I don’t recognize any of these titles (except A Wrinkle in Time). But I like the idea of being well read in graphic novels. So maybe I’ll have to start 🙂
I know so little about graphic novels, but have really enjoyed the few that I’ve read!
I really want to read Jane, The Fox, and me as well! I had no idea that they adapted A Wrinkle In Time to GN format. Definitely checking that one out!
I’ve heard great things of the Wrinkle in Time adaptation!
Tomboy looks great!
Yeah. I think I heard the author on a podcast. It sounds really interesting.
The Babysitter’s Club in graphic novel form!! That’s amazing! I flipped through the Wrinkle in Time graphic novel and it was insanely gorgeous. I’d really like to try more graphic novels and Jane, the Fox, and Me looks like a good one to start with!
I really enjoyed reading Maus I & II!!
Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:
I added Jane, the Fox, and Me to my wishlist yesterday. It sounds lovely!
My Top Ten
Maus was a life-changer for me. We had to read it in one of my high school history classes, and it was like a whole bunch of switches flipped in my head. It humanized history for me in a way nothing else had at that point. I highly recommend it (that said – it’s certainly not easy reading).
Definitely a hard subject to read about, but I’ve heard such good things from many people. This is a powerful endorsement. I’ll have to get to it soon!
