Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys The Big Lie Review

Goodreads
Amazon

I grew up reading Nancy drew and when I saw this in the read now section of NetGalley I knew I wanted to try it. This was a lot darker and edgier read. The mystery kept me wanting to keep reading!I also thought the artwork was unique and dark. I liked this and I plan on checking out the next volume.

I received an ecopy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Anne of Green Gables : A Graphic Novel Review

Goodreads
Amazon

I read Anne of Green Gables when I was in middle school and it became one of my favorites. Being a fellow redhead I related to Anne's feeling about her red hair. I also really loved her imagination and there is so much about family and friendship. Anne of Green Gables is just so magical. I was thrilled when I found out there was a graphic novel of green gables. I couldn't wait to dive back into one of my favorite books! I loved how beautiful the art was! It really brought Anne and her story to life! I really enjoyed this beautiful graphic novel!

Late October Book Haul & Life Update

Hello, everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving. I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts. I  have been really struggling with my health and I received some bad news from my doctor. I will post as much as I can but there will be some days I won't be able to. I thought I'd give you guys a heads up.So on to the haul. I picked up two books in October. I bought some adult coloring books too. I might start including them if you guys are interested. I'm kind of obsessed.

Here are the two books I bought :




I found these two at Goodwill for three dollars. They are both in fairly good condition. So I think I got a good deal. So what books have you picked up lately? Have you had a good reading month?
