I’ve been reading a lot of graphic novels this year, and when I found out you could request them through NetGalley, I went a little overboard. While browsing through available titles I stumbled upon The Daughters of Ys, written by M.T. Anderson and illustrated by Jo Rioux, and immediately requested a copy.
Isn’t the cover of this graphic novel beautiful? As soon as I saw it I knew I had to read it. But friends, don’t be like me and assume a pretty cover means a nice, carefree story, because Ever After by Olivia Vieweg is the total opposite. In this story, the main character Vivi is trying to escape not only zombies, but the ghosts of her past as well.
What starts as an innocent game of Truth or Dare quickly turns into a sinister story with missing children and butchered bodies . . .
If you’re looking for a quick, light-hearted story to get you in the mood for summer, I’ve got the perfect recommendation for you! Get your hands on a copy of How to Spot by Sasquatch, written by J. Torres, and illustrated by Aurélie Grand.
