My Thoughts


Oh man. I do not know why I do this to myself. I just love this series and reading the graphic novels makes me want to read all of the books all over again. So far I am really enjoying the graphic novels but they only cover some of the most important things to move the story along quickly. I miss all the in between stuff and even though I got to see it happening I feel like I can experience it all better as I read it.

With only 144 pages a lot has to be condensed but I feel like they do a good job deciding what they keep and decide to show. I don’t want to go into detail on what they included since I know some people might just be reading the graphic novels and have not read the books. It was really nice getting to see the new characters come in to this one. My favorite? Adrian of course. I was totally looking forward to getting to see him. The introduction to Rose’s mother and Christian’s aunt was also great. I think all the characters were drawn pretty well. I wasn’t disappointed in any of them.

I think everything was done well. The scenes I knew were coming up hit me the way I thought they would. Just like the first one it was a great and fast way to get into the series again.  I am really looking forward to see how the rest of the series will turn out

    I am happy to hear these are as enjoyable as the books, even if they are missing a lot of the story. I hope to read them one day. 🙂

    This series will forever be one of my most favorite series. I probably will never read the graphic novels though. That’s just a me thing though. I’m not big on my favorite books being turned into graphic novels. I dunno why. I think it’s just a pet peeve. Hmm. Oh well.

    I really want to read the graphic novels of the VA series since I love the original books. I’m a total fangirl ! 🙂
    But I can’t get them since there are no comic book stores where I live. 🙁
    Still, I’m glad they are enjoyable and make you want to read the series all over again!
    Great review, Bianca! 🙂
