This week has just been weird, I have missed a few different themes in my writing this week, so I’m trying to get back on track. Starting now, with my Thursday Threes where I talk about three books I’m excited to be coming to the library for me!
Food Wars! by Yuto Tsukuda
Soma Yukihira’s old man runs a small family restaurant in the less savory end of town. Aiming to one day surpass his father’s culinary prowess, Soma hones his skills day in and day out until one day, out of the blue, his father decides to enroll Soma in a classy culinary school! Can Soma really cut it in a school that prides itself on a 10 percent graduation rate? And can he convince the beautiful, domineering heiress of the school that he belongs there at all?!
Bloodlust and Bonnets by Emily McGovern
From the creator of the hit webcomic My Life As a Background Slytherin comes a hilarious graphic novel pastiche of classic Romantic literature led by a trio of queer misfits—and several angry vampires.
Set in early nineteenth-century Britain, Bloodlust & Bonnets follows Lucy, an unworldly debutante who desires a life of passion and intrigue—qualities which earn her the attention of Lady Violet Travesty, the leader of a local vampire cult.
But before Lucy can embark on her new life of vampiric debauchery, she finds herself unexpectedly thrown together with the flamboyant poet Lord Byron (“from books!”) and a mysterious bounty-hunter named Sham. The unlikely trio lie, flirt, fight, and manipulate each other as they make their way across Britain, disrupting society balls, slaying vampires, and making every effort not to betray their feelings to each other as their personal and romantic lives become increasingly entangled.
Both witty and slapstick, elegant and gory, Emily McGovern’s debut graphic novel pays tribute to and pokes fun at beloved romance tropes, delivering a joyous, action-packed world of friendship and adventure.
Beasts of Burden by Evan Dorkin
Welcome to Burden Hill – A peaceful suburb like any other with white picket fences and vibrant green grass – home to an unlikely team of paranormal investigators.
Black magic, demonic frogs, and zombie roadkill are just a few of the problems plaguing this seemingly sleepy little town. With the human residents unaware of the danger, it’s up to a determined crew of dogs (and one cat) to keep their community safe.
Horror, adventure, mystery, and humor thrive on every page of Beasts of Burden, which promises to capture readers’ hearts and haunt their dreams.
Yeah…they’re all graphic novels and comics and I’m really excited for them to come in at some point. They all have to be ordered, thankfully the library is very willing to buy books that they don’t have yet. Very excited for all of these. Do you order books to read at the library? Or do you buy the books for yourself? Comment below and let me know!
