Nimona | Noelle Stevenson
National Book Award Finalist * New York Times Bestseller * New York Times Notable Book * Kirkus Best Book * School Library Journal Best Book * Publishers Weekly Best Book * NPR Best Book * New York Public Library Best Book * Chicago Public Library Best Book * A Spring 2015 Indie Next List PickThe New York Times bestselling graphic novel sensation from Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic. Kirkus says, If youre going to read one graphic novel this year, make it this one.Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel has been hailed by critics and fans alike as the arrival of a superstar talent (NPR.org).Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.

I was a bit disappointed with Nimona, it didn't live up to all the hype I've heard.

Happy Reading everyone!

This is a fun supervillain story where Nimona decides to one day approach Ballister Blackheart in the hopes of becoming his shapeshifting sidekick. Needless to say, she got the job. With all sorts of twists and tricks, this story focuses on the importance of being there for your friends, accepting who you are even with your differences, and realizing that the good guys might not be 100% good and the bad guys aren‘t 100% bad.

I‘ve been feeling pretty stressed and overwhelmed lately from being sick and still having to work while also applying to jobs. To try and relax a bit, I decided to spend the evening trying to knock off some of the graphic novels and manga off my giant pile of checked out books from the library. This is the result 👍 Nothing overwhelmingly impressive but I enjoyed spending the night reading.

Loved this graphic novel about a shapeshifting sidekick to a Super Villain. Their relationship is so sweet, and the exploration of who/what is a villain vs. a 'good guy' resonated with me.

this book reminds me of the nostalgic you get from watching an old movie
it‘s exciting, yet comforting
it‘s intense, yet calm
there is always a sense of familiarity between the reader and Nimona
she is our inner teenage rebel, she is spiteful but she is kind
i highly recommend this novel, not only for the wit but for the artwork and overall feel too
10/10 - this book started my graphic novel collection

Sure, this is a week late, and I‘ve already finished reading one of the books in this stack, but I‘ve had kids under foot and was waiting for holds to come in at the library. Anyway, here is my January TBR pile. Do any of you make monthly TBR stacks? I started last fall, and while it took me a few months to make this practice mine, now I really like it.

Weaponxgirl I try and fail to stick to my choices guaranteed. Too much of a mood reader 11mo
greeniezona I get it! I usually am, too. I don‘t try to hold myself to this stack at all. I just make my stack, display it prominently on my coffee table all month, and go there first when I‘m looking for a new book to read. But if I‘m not feeling any of those in the moment, I don‘t feel bad about looking elsewhere. 11mo

I 💜 Nimona! Noelle Stevenson does not disappoint with this fun, fast paced fantasy tale that follows a villain and his sidekick. I even caught myself laughing out loud several times.

If you're a fan of Lumberjanes you should definitely check this one out.

I loooooved this book. The drawings are too cute, but also the characters are honest and with a twist. Nimona desperately wants to be sidekick, but the sidekick of a villain. Her power hides a secret and watching her adventures and growth is utterly thrilling. Highly recommend this and, of course, the new adaptation of She-Ra (Netflix) from the same author. Not just for your kids 😉

Another great comic from my library. I recognised the title but didn't know what it was about (a shapeshifter and a supervillain, and if they really are the villains). Apparently it's a webcomic, so I was surprised that it has a real ending. There are a few tone shifts, a bit silly at times and getting darker and more complex at the end. I might have developed a little crush on Ballister Blackheart (his nemesis is Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin).

I first read Nimona three years ago. It was good then, BUT re-reading it today... My goodness. Stay angry ladies. Burn it all down. Maybe that‘s the only way.

Today though... I‘m tired. I‘m more than a little concerned that tomorrow I might be 3/5ths of a person again. So I‘m ignoring the news, comfort cooking soup, and watching Good Eats.

Susannah 😢 I‘ve been avoiding the news as much as possible today, but it‘s been nearly impossible not to see the headlines. A scary, scary day for people who are not of a like mind with our current administration. I just hope it doesn‘t beat down Democratic voters in November. A good day for some comfort. 1y
WhatDeeReads @Susannah It is incredibly hard to fight the feeling of helplessness. Currently, I‘m just reading and cooking. 1y

Stopped by my local library‘s book club and stayed long enough to finish up this graphic novel. In case anyone wonders how I can afford to read so many books, it is literally because of my public library. They have so many good books (like this one!) and get a lot in regularly. Support your local library!! #Nimona #NoelleStevenson
