If you follow me on Goodreads then you may have noticed that I recently read a lot of graphic novels. I love reading graphic novels because they combine two of my favorite things art and reading! In this post, I wanted to share some of the graphic novels I recently read. I mentioned some of these in my latest monthly favorites post but I wanted to make a separate post to discuss things in more detail. Let me know if you all want a separate ‘what I read’ post every month.

Sheets (Sheets, #1) by Brenna Thummler
I’ve been wanting to read the Sheets ever since I first saw pictures of the cover because I love a classic sheet ghost! This graphic novel tells the story of thirteen-year-old, Marjorie. After her mom passes away she is in charge of their family laundry business whilst her father grieves the passing of his wife. Her life goes from depressing to chaotic after she stumbles across Wendell, a sheet ghost. The whole story is very wholesome with cute illustrations by Brenna Thummler but also talks about grief and friendship.

Delicates (Sheets, #2) by Brenna Thummler
This graphic novel follows the events after Sheets. Marjorie’s life has changed she has a new group of friends and isn’t working as hard at her family’s laundromat but is she happy? Wendell is being ignored by Marjorie and their friendship is rocky until a new character enters both of their lives. Like the first issue, this was an enjoyable read but gets dark towards the end.

Doughnuts and Doom by Balazs Lorinczi
I saw this graphic novel available on Kindle Unlimited and thought the cover looked cute so I went in knowing only that witches and doughnuts were in my future. Margot meets Elena unexpectedly after she fails her witch test. Margot accidentally places a spell on Elena when she refuses to give her a doughnut causing a messy situation for both of them. I thought this story was cute until the end. I thought it was rushed and I don’t think we ever get clarity over the spell Margot casts on Elena and it was “cured” quite randomly.

Aquicorn Cove by Kay O’Neill
After the passing of her mother, Lana, and her father return to Lana’s mother’s hometown to help clean up debris from a storm. While helping out Lana discovers an injured Aquicorn, a magical seahorse creature. Can Lana help this Aquicorn and reunite it with its family before the next storm hits? This was cute yet informative. It talks about climate change and the impact it can (and most likely will) eventually have on all of us. I thought it was clever and actually gives the reader some ways they can change their carbon footprint at the end.

The Tea Dragon Society (Tea Dragon, #1) by Kay O’Neill
I’ll start off by saying that all of the graphic novels in the Tea Dragon series are absolutely stunning! Even though I read this via ebook, I used my iPad so I could view all the beautiful colors. The illustrations are literally a piece of art I would rip out any page from this novel and display it proudly on my walls. The story was cute and I adore all the adorable drawings of the tea dragons!

The Tea Dragon Festival (Tea Dragon, #2) by Kay O’Neill
This is the second graphic novel in The Tea Dragon series. The Tea Dragon Festival follows a new duo, with cameos from characters featured in the first graphic novel. This book takes place before the first graphic novel. As mentioned before, the colors and illustrations are breathtaking, the aesthetics of these books are just on point and even the outfits are gorgeous! I love how every graphic novel in the Tea Dragon series ends with some information regarding the tea dragons.

The Tea Dragon Tapestry (Tea Dragon, #3) by Kay O’Neill
This entire world that Kay O’Neill created was absolutely adorable but I’m bummed that this is the last issue in The Tea Dragon series. All of the tea dragon lore is amazing and you can tell a lot of research and planning went into creating this series. I highly recommend this series to anyone just for the beautiful illustrations but the stories are also done well. If I had to choose a tea dragon it would be either a Mountain Chamomile or a Marshmallow dragon. If you’ve read the Tea Dragon series, what dragon would you choose?

Heartstopper Volume #4 by Alice Oseman
After watching the most recent season of Heartstopper on Netflix I decided to go and read the fourth book in the series because I had so many questions and wanted to see how certain issues played out in the graphic novels. I’m so glad I did because there were answers to many questions! I’m curious as to how they are going to address certain issues in the next season.
