April Book Wrap-Up 2019

April is all about the graphic novels I read, well, mostly. I also read for the Easter Readathon, but not really successfully.

Archie Comics Vol. 5

Authors: Mark Waid, Audrey Mok (Illustrator)
Genre: Graphic Novel, Young Adult, Fiction
Stars: 4 out of 5

Shelf it on Goodreads!

One life has been destroyed, another family has been torn apart – and only the kids of Riverdale High can save their town from imploding!

These comics are a nice breeze-through and help me to get out of reading slumps. I enjoyed the art style far more this time.

Archie Comics Vol. 6

Author: Mark Waid, Audrey Mok (Illustrator)
Genre: Graphic Novel, Young Adult, Fiction
Stars: 3 out of 5

Shelf it on Goodreads!

It all comes down to this! The Riverdale gang – held hostage by Cheryl Blossom’s father! Reggie – at last paying for his crimes! And when all is said and done, Riverdale is turned upside down once more!

I think this has been the last graphic novel of this series and I think it rounded up quite nice. There could be a new plot starting without the reader needing to have one.

Wiener Blut (Austrian Superheroes #1)

Authors: Harald Havas, Thomas Aigelsreiter (Illustrator), Lenny Grosskopf, Andy Paar (Illustrator), Frans Stummer (Colouring), Verena Loisel (Illustrator)
Genre: Graphic Novel
Stars: 5 out of 5

Shelf it on Goodreads!

Very different superheroes, one of them being Captain Austria, have to come together to fight a mysterious killer that attacks women at night in Vienna.

I didn’t know that something like Austrian superheroes existed – until I stumbled upon the Austrian Superheroes booth at Vienna Comix, where the graphic novel was sold, next to the many sequels! My friend and I had to buy the first comic immediately, if not simply because supporting your own country with superheroes comics is something you have to do.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #1

Author: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Robert Hack (Illustrator), Jack Morelli (Illustrator)
Genre: Graphic Novel, Horror, Fantasy
Stars: 4 out of 5

Shelf it on Goodreads!

Sabrina Spellman is a teenage witch who lives with her aunts Hilda and Zelda in Greendale in the 1960s.

I’m not too keen on the art style, but the story interests me, so I keep reading them. Originally, the Netflix TV show made me do it, and I love it, so even if I’m not binging the Graphic Novel series, I will keep it in my mind.

China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians #2)

Author: Kevin Kwan
Genre: Contemporary, Fiction
Stars: 4 out of 5

Shelf it on Goodreads!

Two years after the event of Crazy Rich Asians, Rachel and Nick decide to get married, secluded from Nick’s family. But since Nick’s mother finds out by coincidence who Rachel really is related to, she makes everything possible to build up the connection to have someone worthy, in her eyes, being married to Nick.

I loved China Rich Girlfriend just as much as Crazy Rich Asians. The plot doesn’t immediately start after the first book, but gives a quick background check of what has happened during the time, not wasting time, to continue the present plot. The reader gets to read more about the characters that were pushed back in Crazy Rich Asians, without being left out on Rachel’s and Nick’s life.

Until the next monthly wrap-up…
