Brandy | 2535 comments Blood Work (The Hollows Graphic Novel, #1) by Kim Harrison was great. I love Kim Harrison books. That is the only graphic novel I have read. or what about Hyperbole and a Half Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh

I've been wanting to read Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened for awhile! That's perfect. Just borrowed it from the library.

I also placed the 5th diary of a wimpy kid on hold The Ugly Truth

Would manga books count because they have illustrations?

if you are doing the 26 book challenge you can use it for the book with illustration, or Shel Silverstein is a great choice for book of poems.
