To have and to hold, to read and to read… again!

I have taken to re-reading my old favourites =_=; My love affair with those Mark Billingham thrillers didn’t last as long as CSI or The Mentalist, most unfortunately! I suspect I read too much too soon, and now I can’t even read past the prologues, boo hoo (not your fault, Mark)! So what have I been reading all November? All my favourite books, save for The Shadow of the Wind 

  1. The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster
  2. The Bread of Angels by Stephanie Saldana 
  3. Persepolis 1 & 2 by Marjane Satrapi 
  4. Palestine by Joe Sacco 

Recently I bought a graphic novel at Planerds in Somerset 313 called Marzi: a memoir by Marzena Sowa. While it is an easy read, I doubt I will read it again and again like I do Persepolis (and Embroideries and Chicken with Plums), but we’ll see about that! I do have a habit of revisiting graphic novels… 

I’m looking forward to getting my hands on Habibi by Craig Thompson this weekend (why not earlier? cos there’ll be a discount at the Bookfest, or so I’ve been told by a little birdy)! I read his travelogue, Carnet de Voyage, which I loved. I may well be the last and only person to not have read Blankets. I will have to pace myself with Habibi and not try to swallow it whole, which I tend to do. 

After reading Habibi, I think I’ll keep with this theme of re-visiting old favourites and re-read all The Punisher comics written by Garth Ennis! 

Read any gripping (to have and to hold… geddit? geddit?) graphic novels/ thrillers of late?
