Ten Graphic Novel Recommendations

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics, click here.

Hi everyone! We're back! Thanks so much for hanging in there with us while we took a much needed break. Some of us are dealing with some health issues and we've got a whole puddle of new babies who need their mommies, so life kind of got in the way! We're still figuring out our mojo in light of all these changes, so thanks for your patience as we sort through what the future holds for us. :)

We can't wait to see what direction you took this week's topic in! Link up your posts and we'll do our best to stop by and visit you. :)

Today I, Jana, am tackling this topic on my own and decided to highlight some graphic novels I've read and enjoyed recently. I'm a baby when it comes to this entire world of graphic novels, so recommend some of your favorites if you'd like!

1. The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O'Neil: SO cute, very pretty illustrations, and lots of adorable tea dragons!

2. The Little Red Wolf by Amelie Flechais: A topsy turvy retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. Kind of dark, but beautiful.

3. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson: Fantasy with an awesome heroine! And villains!

4. The Arrival by Shaun Tan: A very sweet, wordless immigration story.

5. Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale: A wild, wild west Rapunzel!

6. Spill Zone by Scott Westerfield: A sci-fi graphic novel that Marissa Meyer blurbed!

7. Cast No Shadow by Nick Tapalansky: Guy is in love with a ghost. HELLO.

8. Saved By The Bell #1 by Joelle Sellner: It's SBTB!

9. Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer: It's The Lunar Chronicles! I loved seeing my old friends.

10. In Real Life by by Cory Doctorow and Jen Wang: It's about gamers!



  1. Welcome back! I love Through the Woods and Persepolis (and Saga although it's not for everyone).

  2. Welcome back :) This is my first time doing this meme and I am excited!

  3. Welcome back!! Nice topic and choices! Gotta say they're pretty much all new to me! I still need to read Wires and Nerves! Hopefully soon!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  4. Loved Nimona, and I'm definitely going to need to track down the Saved by the Bell graphic novel!

  5. I'm not much of a graphic novel reader either.

  6. I'm newer to graphic novels myself (really got into them this year), but I've loved Saga, Ms. Marvel, Alex + Ada, The Wicked + The Divine, Blue is the Warmest Color, Drama, and Roller Girl. Some others that were okay: Lumberjanes, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, and Paper Girls.

  7. I loved Nimona! I've also been enjoying Lumberjanes recently. It's not solely by Noelle Stevenson like Nimona, but shares a lot of the same humor and general adorableness.

  8. I've heard lots of good things about Nimona and Wires and Nerves! Curious about the Saved by the Bell graphic novels! :O Thanks for sharing. Read 'Seconds' if you haven't already! That's one of the good ones, in my opinion. ;)

  9. Welcome back! I’m pretty new to graphic novels, but I liked Through the Woods and Blankets.

  10. I don't think I've ever actually tried reading a graphic novel. Definitely need to change that! I might have to check out some of these recs :)
    Welcome back! Glad to have TTT return :)

  11. What interesting lists this week!!! Outstanding. I love seeing what people have written about this week as well as amassing even more titles for my to-read list!

  12. Marissa and Scott's are on my tbr for sure! I did top ten authors of WWI & WWII Novels. And yes, I included Mr. Westerfeld haha

  13. I'm so new to graphic novels, so this is a great starter list for me! And I always love fairy tale retellings!

  14. I love the Girl Genius graphic novels! They're full of fantasy steampunk goodness.
