The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White

“Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered with bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into the streets . . . until she is brought to the home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything–except a friend.

Victor is her escape from misery. Elizabeth does everything she can to make herself indispensable–and it works. She is taken in by the Frankenstein family and rewarded with a warm bed, delicious food, and dresses of the finest silk. Soon she and Victor are inseparable.

But her new life comes at a price. As the years pass, Elizabeth’s survival depends on managing Victor’s dangerous temper and entertaining his every whim, no matter how depraved. Behind her blue eyes and sweet smile lies the calculating heart of a girl determined to stay alive no matter the cost . . . as the world she knows is consumed by darkness.”

On a Sunbeam by Tillie Walden

“A ragtag crew travels to the deepest reaches of space, rebuilding beautiful, broken structures to piece the past together.

Two girls meet in boarding school and fall deeply in love—only to learn the pain of loss.

With interwoven timelines and stunning art, award-winning graphic novelist Tillie Walden creates an inventive world with places that aren’t quite planets, but more surreal landscapes with flying horses. The breathtaking romance and richly drawn characters are compelling; culminating in an epic quest for love.”

 

 

How to Be an American by Silvia Hidalgo

p. 102-3 from How to Be an American

“Hidalgo, an artist and graphic designer, was born in Costa Rica and moved to the U.S. in 1998. When she decided to begin the American naturalization process in 2015, she quickly found that the materials provided by the government for the citizenship test were lacking. In order to more easily absorb the information, Hidalgo started her own illustrated reference to civics facts and American history essentials. Her personal study booklet was the inspiration behind How to Be an American, which expands upon the information for a freshly designed and illustrated two-color guide to all things America.

The best way to support the immigrant community — and, really, every person who calls the U.S. home today — is by learning everything you can about the country, its government, and the rights of its people. Get informed about everything from the branches of government to the history of politics, by picking up How to Be an American.” —Kerri Jarema for Bustle

Shane Cole reviews that second book in the graphic novel adaptation of the popular series “The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod.”

Vladimir tod has accepted the fact that he’s a lot different than everyone else but little does he know someone very loved in his life get hurt and his friends cousin is a hunter so now he has to overcome the challenges of defeating the council and this newly found hunter.

I really recommend this book if u have read the first one it’s really good and i think this book is way better than the first one because it keeps u on your feet and keeps you wanting to keep reading and not put the book down.
