My first time reading Graphic Novels

Hello dear Readers,

Today, I would like to share my thoughts on reading Graphic Novels for the first time.

I have to say it was an interesting and enjoyable experience. I kept thinking, while reading, how a story can be put in just a few pages and result in a great one. How a lot of images and a few words can tell so much and immerse us in the world the Author wants to show us. That is how a felt with the two Graphic Novels I read. A Game of Thrones. The Graphic Novel. Volume One by George R.R. Martin and The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler's Wife). There are no particular reasons why I chose these two Graphic Novels. The only thing I can say is I have heard so many good things about Graphic Novels, they are very popular now so I decided I wanted to read one. That is why, on my last trip to the Library, I took a look around at the Graphic Novels shelf. A Game of Thrones is a well known book series and TV Show and I love Libraries and Bookmobiles. Basically, that is why I ended up checking out these two Graphic Novels. I was curious. 

Being my first time reading Graphic Novels, I have to admit, I was a little scare of what I was getting myself into, but once I opened them and started reading them, I was impressed and delighted. The illustrations are so gorgeous. The Art is amazing. You can tell there is a lot of effort and hard work involved in putting a Graphic Novel together. Like I said, how a beautiful image and a few words can show us and makes us feel part of the story. Overall, my firs time reading Graphic Novels was a great experience.

I will definitely read more Graphic Novels in the near future. I would also like to read Comic Books. I like the Avengers. Maybe I will start with that. We will see what happens. And when I do, I will share my thoughts with you guys.
