Since I took a sick day yesterday due to the flu, I decided to go to the library and check out some books for the Bout of Books 10.0 read-a-thon. I’ve been meaning to get some graphic novels since it’s something that has always captured my attention, but I really have never picked them up. As an Asian Studies major, American Born Chinese and Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang just seemed like a perfect introduction into this genre.
Some of these might get read before the read-a-thon since they are due in 3 weeks. We shall see. Here are the spoils of my trip.
The Next Queen of Heaven by Gregory Maguire
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler (Art by Maira Kalman)
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
