Hello friends and fellow book lovers! I’m back with another GraphicsAThon post and this time, I’m going to be featuring my TBR. Of course, I’m going to try to hit all of the prompts and get a full blackout on the bingo board. With that being said, I’m going to talk about the books I plan on reading and hope that I end up being able to get a full blackout so let’s get into my picks. 🙂
For this one, I decided to go with Nubia: Real One by L.L. McKinney and Robyn Smith. I don’t know anything about this book but it seems like it’s going to be great. I’ve never read anything by L.L. McKinney but I’ve heard of her so I’m excited to get to this one. 🙂
For a 2021 release, I decided to go with The Sprite and the Gardener which I don’t know anything about but it seems like it’s going to be so cute. I know it’s marketed towards kids too but it seems like an adorable and short read.
Continue A Series
For this one, I went with Exorsisters Volume 2 by Ian Boothby. I really enjoy this series and I can’t wait to continue it. It seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun and I absolutely adore this story to boot.
A Different Format
This one is actually a re-read for me, but I saw that this has an audiobook. I’ve never listened to a graphic novel via audiobook so I think it’ll be something new. Plus this one hits multiple prompts if I end up not reading as much as I plan for.
For this one, I went with Check, Please! Book 2: Sticks and Stones is an easy pick for me as I loved the first book in this series. I have this one on hold at the library and I’m super excited to get to it, finally. It’s easily one of my favorite graphic novel series so I knew I had to include it.
If it doesn’t end up coming off hold in time, I’m going to use One Of Those Days by Yehuda Devir as I already have a hold on this one.
A Host Rec
For a “Host Rec,” I decided to go with Eat, and Love Yourself by Sweeney Boo. This is a book that Ellyn has recommended a lot and I knew I wanted to read it eventually. Of course, this is the perfect opportunity to finally read it. Plus my library actually has this one. 🙂
For this one, I decided to go with a KU manga. I honestly don’t know much about this one but I think someone recommended it for love in the night. Since then, I’ve been eager to pick it up and what better time than now?
For this one, I decided to go with Surviving The City by Tasha Spillett which I honestly don’t know much about. I’m excited to get to it though as it’s going to be my first graphic novel by an Indigenous Author which is exciting. If I don’t get this one, I have a few other options, too.
Out Of Your Comfort Zone
No surprise that I’d include another one of the BSC graphic novels. These are so much fun and I’m really excited to get more into the series as these books are some of my favorite childhood reads plus I rarely read middle-grade so it’s perfect.
Rainbow on the Cover
The cover for this one is actually a special edition I saw on Goodreads that isn’t on Hoopla. However, I feel like this works perfectly as it has rainbow on the cover and features an f/f romance which is perfect for pride month.
Keeping with the BSC theme, I decided to read the next book in this series. I loved the Netflix series when it dropped last year so I thought this would be perfect. Plus these books are just so much fun to read and to see how the story is changed/adapted for a 21st century audience.
The final book on my TBR is our group book which is Check, Please Book 1 by Ngozi Ukazu. If you couldn’t tell by one of my previous TBR books, I ADORE this series and I’m happy to revisit it. Plus it would be nice to get a refresher before I dive into book 2.
It’s a bit late, but I’m finally posting my Graphics-A-Thon TBR. I might squeeze in a few other reads, but I definitely want to get to all 12 of these. Honestly, I’m just ready to start reading so I’d like to know if you’ve read and enjoyed any of these books.
