New Year, New Recommendations in Graphic Novels

The start of the year always inspires me to try new titles and genres I may not be familiar with. I am a huge fan of recommended reads and love referencing GoodReads, a free social media site for book lovers, for new suggestions.

Each year GoodReads publishes the Choice Awards, lists of favorite titles by genre, including graphic novels and comics, voted for by GoodReads members.

Listed below are the top 5 from GoodReads’ Best Graphic Novels and Comics. Visit here for the full list and here for other Choice lists!

Beautiful Creatures: the manga by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl; adapted and illustrated by Cassandra Jean.

Avatar: the last airbender. The Search. Part One by Gene Luen Yang.
