Top Ten Tuesday: Visuals

                Hello everyone!  Top Ten Tuesday is just how it sounds, a topic is picked and we put our Top Ten for that in a post and share and check out everyone’s answers.  Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

The top ten today is:  Visuals (Graphic Novels, Illustrated, Comics, etc)

                First let me pick any books with MAPS huge plus!  They are so pretty.  And things like Six of Crows that had a character sketch poster those kind of things are on point! 

Harry Potter Illustrated Editions- Harry Potter with pictures=perfect!
The Infernal Devices Manga- Black and white and really interesting to see my characters and relive the whole series in a quicker more visual format.
A History of Notable Shadowhunters & Denizensof Downworld- This is something I saw someone haul and just knew I needed it.  A guide of characters in different series and information on them but mostly the art....so many books should have this.
Legend Graphic Novels- The first two were awesome and I have the final one on pre-order for April.
Vampire Academy Graphic Novels- One of my fav series of course I love these!  I can't wait for the rest!
House of Night Novellas bind-up Graphic Novel- I was sad to see this series come to an end so when I found the novellas in graphic novel form I had to!
You Were Here by –Each character had their own voice and style in chapters and the art show as one of those was perfect some normal book format others in art work and some in graphic novel style. (review)
Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas- The coloring book.  So a bit different but the pages in the book are so pretty.  This could really go to any of the many coloring books coming out as of late for series like Lunar Chronicles, The Selection, etc. 
Wires and Nerve (Vol #1)- This comes out today and I can't wait for my copy to arrive!

               I've mostly stuck to graphic novels of series I already love but I have been wanting to check out more, full stories I just don't know where to start.  Hoping to get some good ideas this week!
  

                 What books have I been missing out on?  Tell me what you think of my list in the comments below.  Also please link back to your Top Ten as well so I can check out your list and see what I missed!

  1. I love books with maps, definitely. Or anything that kinda pushes the envelope visually. That Shadowhunters book looks really cool, and so does the Legends books (I didn't there were graphic novels of those).

    Wires and Nerve I keep seeing and I'm really curious about...

  2. You know I heard they have quite a few ya novels adapted to graphic novels. I really need to get my hands on them! Specially The Infernal Devices. By far one of my favorite series!

    I got Wires and Nerves preordered! I'm so ecstatic to finally get it soon!!!
    Great list!

  4. I'm going to have to look for the House of Night book. I read part of the series and didn't hate it although Zoe drove me crazy a lot of the time. I am loving the artwork on that book though!

  5. I need a copy of A History of Notable Shadowhunters & Denizens of Downworld in my life! I didn't even know it existed, but I agree, more books should have these.

    1. Yes to both! The history is mostly just character summaries and beautiful artwork but it's interesting and really adds a bit of extra flare ;) plus the pictures!

  9. I did not do a list today for myself, I asked my daughter if she wanted to help and list her favorite books!
    I never read a comic book.So The only ones I read were the VA and Percy Jackson graphic novels. But we did something a little different. Allyson added some comics she read on her list.
