Graphic Novels on my TBR pile

I’ve got a few graphic novels waiting for me to get them at the moment, I enjoy popping a graphic novel read in between novels, especially if I’ve just read a particularly long one. I’ve got these beauties waiting for me at the moment…

On a Sunbeam by Tillie Walden

Throughout the deepest reaches of space, a crew rebuilds beautiful and broken-down structures, painstakingly putting the past together. As Mia, the newest member, gets to know her team, the story flashes back to her pivotal year in boarding school, where she fell in love with a mysterious new student. When Mia grows close to her new friends, she reveals her true purpose for joining their ship—to track down her long-lost love.

I eyed this one up in Waterstones several times before I convinced myself to get it – it’s huge but looks amazing and I’m really looking forward to reading it. It’s incredibly beautiful.

City of Dragons: The Awakening Storm

When Grace moves to Hong Kong with her mom and new stepdad, her biggest concern is making friends at her fancy new boarding school. But when a mysterious old woman gifts her a dragon egg during a field trip, Grace discovers that the wonderful stories of dragons she heard when she was a young girl might actually be real–especially when the egg hatches overnight.

The dragon has immense powers that Grace has yet to understand. And that puts them both in danger from mysterious forces intent on abusing the dragon’s power. And now it’s up to Grace and her school friends to uncover the sinister plot threatening the entire city!

I love the bold bright colours of this one – it caught my eye straight away. So many graphic novels use muted colours but this one jumps off the page. Love a bit of mythology and dragons so this should be right up my street.

Skyward Vol 2: Here there be dragonflies by Joe Henderson

Now a fugitive, Willa leaves Chicago and goes on the run! But when she takes refuge with some low-G farmers, she stumbles into a plot to attack the city. Oh, and on top of all that: giant, man-eating bugs! Maybe we should have led with that.

I read Volume one of this a while ago now so really should get round to this one – I sped through vol 1 and its such a great premise – a world where gravity doesn’t exist anymore. Willa is a great character too.
