WebsiteTwitterGoodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | Indigo | Library

In her first graphic novel, #1 New York Times and USA Today bestseller Marissa Meyer follows Iko, the beloved android from the Lunar Chronicles, on a dangerous and romantic new adventure—with a little help from Cinder and the Lunar tea

When rogue packs of wolf-hybrid soldiers threaten the tenuous peace alliance between Earth and Luna, Iko takes it upon herself to hunt down the soldiers’ leader. She is soon working with a handsome royal guard who forces her to question everything she knows about love, loyalty, and her own humanity.

myreview

I received this book for free from Macmillan for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First sentence: “Somewhere outside Sydney, Australia…”

“I need more Iko” is the first thing everybody I know says after reading The Lunar Chronicles. And why shouldn’t they? This lovable android with her upbeat personality and love for dresses and shoes is an absolute delight. Readers cannot help but fall in love with her. Readers have been waiting years for her own story, and it’s finally here!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens!

This week’s topic is “top ten nine comics on my TBR.” Bless this Top Ten topic because comics! I could write essays about my love for comics and talk about all my favorite ones, but I’m not gonna do it here. Instead, I want to talk about the comics that are my TBR—ones that I should be reading right now but I just haven’t because of mood or work. There’s so many comics, but these are the ones that are an absolute must because they’re the top comics or I have them on my shelf.

Here are the comics that are on my TBR!

GREEN ARROW • VOL. 1 THE DEATH & LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN

By day he’s Oliver Queen, playboy socialite, CEO of Queen Industries and philanthropic do-gooder. But at night he patrols the streets of Seattle, where he champions the oppressed as a true social justice warrior. He is Green Arrow.

But how can you fight the man when you are the man? That’s the question left with Oliver after an electric, love-at-first-sight encounter with Black Canary, the superhero rock star who challenges everything he thought he knew about protecting the innocent. As if that weren’t enough, a sinister organization with ties to his nearest and dearest prepares to tear down Oliver’s financial empire, destroy his family’s legacy and end his life.

Without fortune or friends, can Green Arrow defeat this unholy alliance of traitors? Or has death finally caught up with Oliver Queen?

Discover the shocking answers in GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN, the surprise hit series from writer BENJAMIN PERCY (TEEN TITANS), gorgeously illustrated by OTTO SCHMIDT (Korvac Saga) and JUAN FERREYRA (NEW SUICIDE SQUAD) and exploding from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event!

Why I’m excitedAlthough I am not the biggest fan of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen, I can’t help but want to read this comic because of Black Canary. Any comics with Black Canary, I immediately need it in my life. (I love that her past as a superhero rock star is carried into this comic.) Also, I heard excellent things about the writing, and that it’s best of the Rebirth stories.
