Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our shelves either from libraries, book shops – or simply landed into our mailboxes.
For the next four weeks, I’ll be sharing books that celebrate our current theme, Fearless Females, Courageous Women. All featured books were borrowed from CLEVNET libraries, including the library where I currently work.
Today, I’m sharing a few graphic novels that have female characters in them. For more graphic novels that feature female characters, you may want to check out my post last year about A Reader’s Guide to Graphic Novels, Comics, and Manga. Enjoy browsing!
