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
- The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster
- The Bread of Angels by Stephanie Saldana
- Persepolis 1 & 2 by Marjane Satrapi
- 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?
