  1. Nice list! 🙂
    Seeing as I wound up reading more graphic novels than regular novels this year I guess I’ll just put what my favorite comic-related reads for the year were! 😉
    Also in no particular order:
    Saga, vol. 1
    The Locke and Key series (especially vol. 3 and 6). Vol. 1 was great too but I read that at the end of 2015 so it doesn’t really count. 😛
    Batwoman, vol. 3: World’s Finest
    DC Bombshells, vol. 1: Enlisted
    Soulless, the manga

      1. I was hoping to get it today, but I think the winter weather killed that hehe. Hopefully by Monday. The pile of books I want to read this year is sitting on my couch, judging me so I don’t forget about them. I’ll add Saga to that pile when it arrives.

      2. I have books spread all over the house lol. My husband told me that our bedroom smells like books, mission accomplished. Onto the rest of the house! I went rest until it smells like we live in a library!

      3. Was he saying this like a bad thing? That’s hilarious! I love that vanilla-y smell of books. If I could live in a library or a bookstore, I’d be one happy narcissist. Mine are all over, too, which is fairly easy since we only have two main rooms hehe. When I move from room to room they come with me. I can’t leave them behind!

      4. No, he wasn’t saying it like it was a bad thing. More of a, “you are so ridiculous about books that our bedroom smells like books now” way lol.
        Mine follow me room to room and then I periodically go back and pick them up and put them back on a shelf. I’ve run out of shelf space though lol.

      5. Oh good good!

        Bahaha for a second I thought you were talking about your dogs :p Now I’m picturing your books following you room to room, whining to be read. This is a glorious mental image.

      1. I read them in high school, but forget where I stopped. I think I read 1 and 2, er, too. If the third is such a unicorn, I probably didn’t get to that one. I’d want to reread the entire series anyway since it’s been so long, and I’ve forgotten a ton.

      2. I need to read it soon before I start forgetting details lol. I really don’t go back and do re-reads, ever. If the story is really good, my brain doesn’t forget most of it. Maybe minor details.
