Finding Time for Reading and Branching Out

Obviously, I haven’t blogged in quite a while. I’ve found it hard to balance reading time with working, crafting and trying to live a healthier lifestyle.

Here lately I seem to have been getting into a bit of a better groove. I won’t say I’ve gotten it figure out but I’m working on it. A while back I decided I didn’t read enough to warrant me blogging about it but this evening I decided who cares how much I read or if I post about a book every week? I want to talk about books with other book lovers and if someone wants to criticize me for not blogging enough that’s up to them.

So I have been making a concentrated effort the past month or two to read more graphic novels. Time for me to branch out and try new things. It has been a form I have avoided in the past and I am quickly learning that was a mistake. Not all graphic novels are about superheroes! Although I admit I have been enjoying some Batman graphic novels. I’ve found that great artwork and good stories can be found in the pages.

So far I have tried The Pretenders (The Cemetary Girl Triology) by Charlaine Harris, Sailor Twain: Or Ther Mermaid on The Hudson by Mark Seigel, and Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Seconds was by far my favorite of the three. I loved the art style and the story drew me in. It had a wonderful old folk tale vibe to it and I stayed up late to finish it in one sitting.

That’s what I’ve been reading lately. I’m currently reading The Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero. Still early on in the book but loving it so far. What have you all been up to? Feel free to let me know some of your graphic novel favorites to check out.

    I have wanted to try graphic novels too, but they get so expensive I am afraid to invest in any. So I will try some of the ones you recommend, and hopefully find some good ones at the library.

    • I was really surprised at the availability at my library. Being in a small town I didn’t have high hopes but I was actually able to get all of those from my library.

  2. Good to see you back. I have read several graphic novels over the years but have never become a huge fan. I haven’t read any of those you listed though, so maybe I need to check them out.
