I have no idea what Nimona by Noelle Stevenson is about. The sole reason I picked it up at the library is that one of the Popsugar Reading Challenge prompts is “A graphic novel” and Nimona is one. Of course, I didn’t pick it all that randomly. I’ve seen a whole lot of people I follow on Instagram and Twitter gush about it. Seeing how I have no idea where to even start with graphic novels, I figured I might as well start here.
Since I actually have no idea what Nimona is about, I don’t have any form of expectations specific to this book. However, I do hope that I’ll enjoy it and perhaps feel compelled to revisit graphic novels. The last time I read a bunch of them I was 16 or so. I used to borrow the odd manga at the library but wasn’t all that invested in them. They were fun to flip through but the plots all seemed to be about the same to me.
Well, here’s a graphic novel that looks sorta quirky and looks like it might offer the kind of complexity that I expect from novels. After all, pictures speak a thousand words, so technically a graphic novel should be packed with a tight story. Whatever comes out of my reading experience, I can’t wait to see if I’ll be yearning for the next graphic novel after I’m done with Nimona.
