Newly Discovered!

Ava’s Demon by Michelle Czajkowski

Copyright Michelle Czajkowski | author, illustrator and creator of the web comic Ava’s Demon

Ok so I just recently read Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia and NEEDED Monstrous Sea to be a thing … for real!

Lo and behold … I stumbled upon a blog post mentioning this amazing web comic called Ava’s Demon which might just satisfy my need!

Seriously, check it out! The art is amazing and creator Michelle Czajkowski says the story HAS AN ENDING … which is always good to know lol.

New pages are posted every Thursday and it is shaping up to be a really fun adventure. I am loving it!

Wires and Nerve by Marissa MeyesWires and Nerve Vol. 1 (Wires and Nerve #1) by Marissa Meyer (author), Douglas Holgate (illustrations)

Hardcover, 240 pages

Published January 31st 2017

This is repetitive because I put this one on the backburner when I had a million books to get though over the past few weeks.

Going to try and curl up with this one all the way through tonight I think (seeing as how my library loan is over tomorrow … oops)

LUNAR CHRONICLES IS LIFE omg! So when I heard that Meyer was working on a graphic novel featuring one of my all time favorite book casts … I FREAKED! In a good way!

Unfortunately the waiting list for this GN was outrageous at my library so I had to wait! BUT NO LONGER BECAUSE I AM HERE! And it is glorious my friends ❤

I only just started this one but I am already giggling like a child because I LOVE THEM SO SO SO MUCH!

(Goodreads synopsis):

“In her first graphic novel, bestselling author Marissa Meyer extends the world of the Lunar Chronicles with a brand-new, action-packed story about Iko, the android with a heart of (mechanized) gold. When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers’ leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity. With appearances by Cinder and the rest of the Rampion crew, this is a must-have for fans of the bestselling series.”

On The TBR

Jyu-Oh-Sei Vol. 1 by Natsumi ItsukiJyu-Oh-Sei Vol. 1 (Jyu_Oh-Sei #1) by Natsumi Itsuki

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, this is going to be my first venture into the world of Manga. After reaching out to Dani @ Perspective of a Writer because of her Top 10 Tuesday: Manga Series To Start post, she listed this series as one she would recommend I try. So I bought all 3 volumes (because I have no chill) and can’t wait to get started! The story sounds fantastic so I am expecting great things here. I am hoping to get to these when I get back from vacation around the end of this upcoming week.

(Goodreads synopsis):

Inspired by the anime. In the year 2436 A.D., twins Thor and Rai are living on the Space Colony Juno space station. Their entire lives turn upside-down after their parents are murdered and they are kidnapped and sent to a forsaken planet by masked men. Young adult.

What are your favorite graphic novels, manga series, ect? Also I am always open to suggestions and recommendations if anyone has any? I would love to hear from you! Comment below!

Sons of Ares Vol 1 by Pierce BrownSons of Ares (Sons of Ares #1) by Pierce brown (other credits in synopsis)

It’s no secret … I am RED RISING TRASH and everybody knows it! Pierce Brown is brilliant truly, so I was crazy excited when I saw that he was releasing a prequel to his Red Rising series and in graphic novel form no less!

The art is this is absolutely stunning! And the story was BRUTAL which I love ❤ … but this GN was SHORT! In fact I am going to hold off on even rating this until I have read all the volumes because IT WAS SOOOO SHORT! I also really hope eventually Brown decides to release a physical edition of all three volumes because I like to own the art on my bookshelf please. I am not a fan of the Kindle only thing.

Note! This prequel should be read only after the Red Rising trilogy to avoid major spoilers!

(Goodreads synopsis *possible Red Rising series spoilers*)

“In the future, when mankind has spread across the stars, the hierarchy of man is dictated by the color of one’s caste. The Golds rule all, but what will happen when one falls for a lowly Red? See how a forbidden love will set the course of events for the future and lead to the formation of the formidable Sons of Ares!

Written by author Pierce Brown (The Red Rising Trilogy) and Rik Hoskin (Heroes of Skyrealm, Brandon Sanderson’s White Sand), with art by Eli Powell (Yakuza Demon Killers, The 13th Artifact), comes the in-continuity story of revolution and Red Rising!”
