I recently joined a group through Goodreads called Top 5 Wednesday with blog topics, so I plan to occasionally use their prompts for my posts…so here goes!

Believe it or not, I read many other books beside graphic novels, so if I were to attend Bookcon, these are the authors I would stop and visit based off the current guest line up:



Sherman Alexie, The Absoluletly True Diary of a Part Time Indian. His book was so awesome, REAL, and necessary. Should be a must read for all high schoolers!


Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments series. This choice is for my daughter- I would gain epic points for bringing home an autograph of her favorite author!


Kate DiCamillo wrote my one of my favorite children’s books ever, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. I read this aloud to not only my own children, but to 3rd-5th graders when I was a school librarian. They eagerly looked forward to the chapters weekly!

J Holm

Jennifer Holm, Babymouse. My kids loved these graphic novels when they were younger. Babymouse is adorbs!


Lisa Yee, DC Super Hero Girls. She is writing some cute graphic novels geared towards younger children, plus she wrote great short stories for the anthologies Dear Bully & Geektastic.


So, who would you pick, and why???
