Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
I had so much fun reading the Saga graphic novels by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples that it made me want to try more comic books. A friend of mine mentioned that Brian K. Vaughan’s other series Y: The Last Man is also pretty good and that all the books in the series have already been released. So if I ever get the chance to give it a try, I can read the books in one go (no need to wait for further installments). I looked at the premise and it does look interesting so I’ve added Y: The Last Man, Volume 1: Unmanned to my wishlist.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
“Y” is none other than unemployed escape artist Yorick Brown (his father was a Shakespeare buff), and he’s seemingly the only male human left alive after a mysterious plague kills all Y-chromosome carriers on earth. But why are he and his faithful companion, the often testy male monkey Ampersand, still alive? He sets out to find the answer (and his girlfriend), while running from angry female Republicans (now running the government), Amazon wannabes that include his own sister (seemingly brainwashed), and other threats.
What about you, what book is at the top of your wishlist? Do you read graphic novels? If yes, which ones are your favorites?
