I‘ve decided it‘s going to be a graphic novel day today. 😉 Any suggestions on which ones I should read first? #TeamSlaughter

I tend to go through spurts of using the library, and not using the library. These past few weeks, I‘ve definitely been ALL ABOUT the library. Here are today‘s picks, most of which are graphic novels. I tried to choose mostly adventure, mystery ones to get some extra points for #TeamSlaughter ♥️

I have fallen way behind in my Goodreads goal this year. While I purposely set it a lot higher than usual I won't be to upset if I don't reach it. I still feel it is possible for me to meet it, especially with the amount of graphic novels that just showed up for me at the library (with still more on the way).

Quick question! I have a stack of graphic novels I have to get through by next Wednesday before they‘re due back at the library. Would anyone be interested in doing a mini graphic novel marathon with me? 🤔

DGRachel Like read the same ones or just catch up on our own stacks? I have two trades that I need to read and a stack of probably a dozen issues, so if you just need someone to cheer you on, i can do that. 😊 1y
JenlovesJT47 @DGRachel we can catch up on our own stacks. Would love to have someone motivate me! I was thinking of starting tomorrow and ending on Wednesday. 1y
DGRachel @JenlovesJT47 That works for me. I have a book that I‘m in the middle of that I need to finish first, but I should be able to start the graphic novels/comics tomorrow. :) 1y

So has anyone ever heard of this happening before? I mailed out my package for the #geekygraphicnovelswap on Friday. Everything was wrapped in wrapping paper. I packed the box myself. My match got the box yesterday and saw metal things sticking out, so I told her to open it and this was all that was in the box. Who would do such a thing?! I'm very upset, not sure how to go about fixing this. 😤😡😤😓😡😓😤💩💩💩💩💩

laurenbescoby I saw an article about thia happening in the UK! Woman ordered a nintendo switch off Amazon. When she opened it it was a large box of washing powder and the bottom of the box had been cut open and resealed. Its terrible. Companies take on so many extra staff at the time of year I doubt they look up references. 2y
Kaye That is weird. What are those things ? The lady at our PO sent a huge box of Valentine candy to her nieces last year. Someone along the way opened the box and ate it all. All they got was the empty heart-box with candy wrappers. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @miralunasbooknook @Kaye that's terrible! People suck 😤😤😤 2y

Mdargusch Wow!!!! I have never heard of this. 2y
JenlovesJT47 @MinDea yes it was a priority box, have to go to the post office today anyway so I'm going to try to figure this out. I actually took a picture before I wrapped everything of everything I put in the box. I'm so mad! 😤 2y
MommyOfTwo 😮 horrible! 2y
JenlovesJT47 @Mdargusch me neither! I would think it would be less likely to happen to a box that's insured. I sent my secret Santa swap on the same day via media mail and it got there before this one did. I don't get it☹️ 2y

MinDea Hey. What happened with this? Did they replace everything with no issues or are you still fighting with them? 2y
JenlovesJT47 @MinDea I have to go online and open a claim. The lady at the post office was nice. She said it was probably airport workers who did it. 😡she also told me to have cobwebmoth take the box she got to her post office. So I dunno what's going to happen. 😌 2y

I didn't take a picture but I did send the #GeekyGraphicNovelSwap package. It's expedited so it should be there in a few days.

Ahhhh! Another surprise delivery! Thank you, @Leslie2 ! (My Nancy Drew-ness tells me so. I think. 😂) But thank you, thank you! I can‘t wait to open — but I‘ve gotta‘ put my big girl tiara on and learn patience. ;) xo! #geekygraphicnovelswap

Leslie2 Yay!!! Glad it made it to you! I do hope you enjoy everything!😄 2y

Hello my lovely Littens! I have some very exciting news! I've been working with @TricksyTails, and together we've come up with a fantastic weeklong Graphic Novel Reading Marathon. For both avid GN readers, and those that have been meaning to try out the genre. There will be photo challenges, Discussion Questions, and even a little giveaway. 😉 So mark your calendars, because the fun starts on January 13th.

BarbaraTheBibliophage What a fun idea! I have some GNs on my shelf that I need to read still!! 2y
Clwojick @BarbaraTheBibliophage I hope you join us! I have so many graphic novels on my TBR that I can't wait to plow through a week set aside to specifically reading them. 😂 2y
monalyisha Good luck & have fun!!! 2y
erzascarletbookgasm Sounds fun! Looking forward :) 2y
cobwebmoth Awesome! 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks Yay, another fun one! 2y
Andrea4 This is great news! 2y
monalyisha I may join in. There are definitely some graphics I‘ve been meaning to try to get into (graphics are a challenge for me, style-wise. Hand me a novel, I‘m great. Hand me 12 more! Hand me a graphic and my brain explodes a little. 🤯😅). I just have so many monthly reading commitments already (3 book clubs: 2 for pleasure, 1 for work). It makes it hard to give up any portion of my “as-the-mood-strikes me” reading time. 🙈 2y
monalyisha If I DO join, I plan to check out: Paper Girls, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lumberjanes, Monstress, and The Wicked + the Divine. (edited) 2y
Clwojick @monalyisha I love Paper Girls, Limberjanea; and the Wicked + The Divine. The other two are on my radar. So glad our library has such a huge collection, as it's made getting in Graphic Novels so easy for me. 2y
Betty Do we sign up anywhere? 2y
Clwojick @Betty Nope, just tag your pics with the hashtag, and tag myself and @TricksyTails during the week of. ❤️️ 2y
