Introducing Girls Love Graphic Novels!

Welcome one and all to Girls Love Graphic Novels, a blog created by two ladies that love their graphic novels. This blog mainly reviews graphic novels, manga, and anime.

Kristen is an Elementary School Librarian who runs a blog called Bookworming in the 21st Century. She has been in love with graphic novels since the age of 19, when she took a class on mythology and fairy tales that introduced her to the graphic novel series Fables by Bill Willingham. Kristen reads a wide variety of graphic novels, including some manga. Of course, like her usual reading tastes she steers towards fantasy, science fiction, and paranormal before anything other genre.

Kate is the infamous bookworm in charge of the marvelous blog The Neverending Shelf. Her love of manga and anime actually began at the tender age of 11 when she was introduced to the wonder that is Sailor Moon. As the years went by, her tastes in anime and manga only grew. Today, Kate will basically read and watch anything she can get her hands on. Some of her favorite series include: Bleach, Blood +, Fushigi Yugi, Cardcaptor Sakura, Mai Hime, Claymore, Kurau: Phantom Memory, and Rurouni Kenshin.

Along with loving to read graphic novels and manga, we are also enamored with Anime and all the awesomeness that it is. Not only will we be reviewing, discussing and displaying our favorite graphic novels and mangas on here, but we will also be spotlighting different Animes that we are currently watching.

So, here you can find our reviews for graphic novels, manga, and anime, along with any cool features we come up with and a possible Graphic Novel Challenge! Stay tuned for more great things to come.

  12. I'm so happy to see a graphic novel and manga blog!! I consider myself a scatter reader with mangas. I'm obsessed with a series at times and than I don't read it for a while, but if I do want to read I go to www.Onemanga.com! It's awesome, all of it is translated and free to read! I love the manga Fruits Basket, it was the first I ever read.

    Also, for Kristen, I have a paranormal manga you may like! It's about vampires XD http://www.onemanga.com/Bloody_Kiss/
