Book Stats:

page count: 266

genre: graphic novel / fantasy

age group: teen

My Rating: 4 / 5 stars*


Why am I recommending this graphic novel?:  

Sometimes you need a change.  Sometimes there isn’t enough time for a novel.  When that happens a good comic, graphic novel or manga series might just be the answer.  (Be careful with the manga series though b/c they can get lengthy!)

Nimona is a great graphic novel for when you need to shift gears a bit.  The artwork has a fun, quirky style to it.  It also has a slightly more subdued color palette that helps set the mood of the comic.   As for the story…

Nimona, the main character, is the best.  She’s spunky and humorous and a great counterbalance to the grouchy self-proclaimed villain, Lord Ballister Blackheart.   The two form an unlikely partnership… maybe even a friendship.  Nothing is quite what it seems in this world and with these characters.

This is a quick read, not just because its a graphic novel, but also because its plot moves quickly and is so interesting!  Pick this up when you need a break from those extra-wordy novels!


*a note on my rating system:  I go by the rates I use on goodreads.com, which are as follows:

1 star = did not like it

2 stars = it was okay

3 stars = liked it

4 stars = really liked it

5 stars = it was amazing

Anything a 3 or above is worth reading, in my opinion.  I’ve read a lot of books that I have given 3 stars to, and I don’t regret any of them.
