This week I read my first ever graphic novel, Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi, the one who wrote Persepolis, and I really enjoyed it. I picked this book up at random (it was facing outwards on the shelves of my local library) and within the first few pages decided I should borrow it, so I took it home and read the whole thing that very afternoon. I never much fancied the idea of a graphic novel, but this was really good and much easier to read than I had imagined. I wasn't sure I'd paid that much attention to the illustrations, but I certainly got more enjoyment out of reading this than I would have from having read a script (this book is all reported conversation, speech bubble style) so the illustrations must have been going in and making an impact somehow. I guess this book's probably not your typical graphic novel (?) but I'm quite inspired now to branch out and try a few more. All and any recommendations gratefully received!
p.s. I'm loving my new mustard tights and this cute skirt, which was a lucky charity shop find earlier this week :)
