• Mysteries (quick reads)
• Fiction (should I call it modern fiction? Yes, I know all of the above categories fall under fiction too)
• Graphic Novels
• Young Adult (just because I'm 24 doesn't mean I don't enjoy these!)
Today we will start with the graphic novels. Why? Because it's one of the shortest groups!
Graphic Novels I Read in 2012
Maus Vol. I and Maus Vol. II
A beautiful graphic novel about the author's father's experiences leading into (and including) World War II. Different types of characters are represented as different animals (Jews are mice, Nazis as cats, etc.).
My sister is really into graphic novels, and this is one that she owns. It follows teenagers as an STD spreads. The STD manifests itself different ways in different people - all of them weird. One girl starts shedding her skin, one grows a tail, and one boy develops a second mouth. Gross but intriguing!
