I finally read Saga! | Recent Graphic Novel & Picture Book Reads

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

With the end of the year approaching, I made my way through a bnch of graphic novels, comics and picture books (which of course doesn’t hurt for the 50 Book Challenge, haha). Here are some of my recommendations.

I’m a Book Depository affiliate and get a small cut from every purchase made through my links. Thanks for your support!

If you can, try to order books from your local bookshop. If you don’t have that option, then the Book Depository ships worldwide.

* = books that were sent to me by a publisher, at my request.

Can you review my book?
I’m always happy to hear about upcoming books, but I’m afraid I don’t review self-published books and can only accept a small number of books for review. I enjoy reading classics, dystopian/apocalyptic novels, sci-fi, translated fiction and a variety of graphic novels, YA and contemporary literary fiction. Get in touch at booksandquills@gmail.com

Where is your accent from?
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, studied English Lit at Leiden University (also in the Netherlands), studied in the US for 3 months and have lots of American friends. I’m definitely not Irish or Canadian, I promise!

Where do you live?
I live in London and have been here for 4 years now.

How did you get into publishing?
I did publishing work experience, did a lot of networking and learned everything I know about social media from creating and running this channel. (P.s. You don’t necessarily have to study Publishing or English to get a job in publishing!).
