Kari's Picks

After a fateful trip to Vermont, inspired by a comic book, Kari decided to leave the west coast and make this state her home. One can most often find Kari reading at least six books at a time with a good mix of genres in hand. Her favorites tend to feature at least one element of magic, and she loves a good graphic novel. Give her a fresh storyline with a strong female lead and she's happy. Throw in some stunning illustrations and she's over the moon.

Authors of Note (According to Kari): Catherynne Valente, Karen Russell, Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link.
Pictorial-Authors of Note: Faith Erin Hicks, Kelly Sue Deconnick, Gail Simone, Fabio Moon& Gabriel Ba.
