I say that we should make another marathon but this time about manga and comics/graphic novels. Everyone will read as many as they can, starting from tomorrow :) Do you guys agree?

Good :)
Also, on Thursday it's my birthday so I will recommend to each one who puts their name here a book, based off their profile and preferences. Just write your name and what book you are craving to read and I'll search my lists and recommend something

Elisa The-Bookie-Monster (the-bookie-monster) | 135 comments I've just finished Paper Girls Volume 1 by Brian K Vaughn. 5/5 I love his other work (Saga, Y the Last Man, and Runaways) and this is no different. Basically, it's about a group of girls who deliver newspapers in the 80's and weird stuff happens, people go missing, there are weird alien-esque people walking around etc. The artwork is just beautiful, the colors are super vibrant and it fits with the story perfectly.

If you mean Ms Peregrine's Home, it counts I think. But you will have to read the whole trilogy for the marathon

I see :) ♥
I do not know which series I am gonna be reading yet but I think it'll be either Black Butler or Soul Eater (yes, I love manga)


message 13: by Lin (new)

Lin Let | 142 comments I'll try my best to get my hands on the rest of them this month but I'll also read manga for the readathon and other illustrated books

Good :) same here
I may read the Infernal Devices in manga version


message 15: by Lin (new)

Lin Let | 142 comments Does illuminae count? It's not a normal YA structured book because it is told through emails and files and they draw the computer files and stuff. Sorry I just don't have many graphic novels and I'm going to go get some more in my local library soon.

Good :D
I am reading Soul Eater. It's also very cool, full of fun and adventure. It has some nudity in it though but there's nothing I can do to avoid it, so...
But still, it's a very good series so far!!
I'm excited to finish it this month

Alesandra (buyanearthquake) | 80 comments I'm binging Saga and it's the best!
I've also read Paper Girls and you were right, it was so awesome!

Lin Let | 142 comments I recommend Smile by Raina Telegiemer, it is so good! The art is nice too and it teaches you about braces

Elisa The-Bookie-Monster (the-bookie-monster) | 135 comments I've just finished Deadly Class Vol 2! It's a great follow up and I'm gonna start volume 3 right after I hit post. 4/5. The art and the story complement each other very well.
