Manga Mondays #168: Books Adapted into Graphic Novels

Manga Mondays Meme

*This post is a little different. It's not focused on a specific volume and it's also not focused solely on manga. I'm thinking of adding some western style graphic novels into Manga Mondays. The focus will still be on manga, but I may expand beyond that sometimes.

I've been doing Manga Mondays every week since I started my blog 3 years ago. It started out as a personal feature, but I decided to turn it into a meme last year. There are quite a few people who do Manga Mondays. I don't claim by any means that I owned or created the idea of Manga Mondays - it's an obvious choice given the alliteration. I think a meme is a great way for everyone to publicize their own Manga Mondays and get a little more publicity.

The linky will be below my review.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and Young Kim

This is the only one of all the books I'm listing that I've read. I love that it's manga style drawing. I don't think it would make much sense if you haven't read the regular books, but the art is absolutely gorgeous. Aside from Twilight volume 1, there's also volume 2, and New Moon.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead and Emma Vieceli

House of Night by P.C. Cast and Joƫlle Jones, Karl Kerschl

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and Jennyson Rosero

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare and HyeKyung Baek

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz, Robert Venditti, and Alina Urusov

Maximum Ride, Vol. 1 by James Patterson and NaRae Lee

Are there any I've missed?

  1. I've only read the first Twilight GN, too, but I also really liked the art work. I don't read that many graphic novels, because it's so difficult. I'm so used to text based stories. But I do read them once in awhile. They're so popular at the library where I work.

  2. I don't usually read book to graphic novel adaptions, but some of those covers are just too pretty O_O Especially House of Night's (don't really like that book series, but hey, good art is good art) and Blue Bloods. Also, is it just me or do graphic novels really like vampires :P

  3. Great list!
    The Parasol Protectorate series also has Graphic Novels :)

  4. Awesome list !

    One of the books turned graphic novels I peaked at was the Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I was curious as to how the artist was going to portray the pretties vs the uglies.

    Also I know Ms. Peregrine's Ransom Riggs and Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl have graphic novels.

  5. I always think I want to read manga versions of books since I'm a super manga fan but then I get the first volume and can't get myself interested. I'm not sure if it's because I already read the book or what. I reread manga all the time so I'm not sure.

  6. I am really satisfied with this posting that you have given us. This is really a stupendous work done by you. |

  7. Thank you for another great article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.
