I haven’t felt like getting invested in a longer story, so I decided to catch up on some graphic novels, which might have many volumes but do take a shorter time to read. Some I already own, and some I picked up from the library.
I just finished
This horror series follows the Locke family children who move into Key house after their father is murdered, and discover the mysterious keys of the house. I re-read volume 2 to bring my memory up to speed – I think I should’ve also read vol. 1 while I was at it, but all the copies were on loan from the library. Then I read through volumes 3-5. I was surprised that I was so into these! I couldn’t believe it – when I had first read the first and second volumes, I’d found the story interesting, but not compelling. Perhaps it’s because the story really picked up steam in these three volumes. I can’t wait for the sixth and final volume to come out!
I might choose any of these graphic novels next.
- Kouta Hirano’s horror/action vampire manga Hellsing – re-read volumes 1-9, and then finally finish the series with volume 10.
- Brian K. Vaughan’s run of the group of superpowered teenager Runaways – I have read one volume from the middle of the story a long time ago.
- I borrowed the first three volumes of Mike Carey’s The Unwritten from the library. This is a completely new fantasy series for me.
- And last but not least, I borrowed volume 3 of Kaoru Mori’s historical A Bride’s Story from the library.
