Haphaven [Noam Harper]; Throwback Thursday

I was pretty impressed, overall, with Haphaven by Norm Harper and Louie Joyce. A graphic novel centered around the idea of luck--be it good or bad--and the world in which it exists wholly to balance out ours, Haphaven was a monumentally fascinating story.

Evermore [Sara Holland]; Throwback Thursday

I mean, damn, I liked Evermore way more than I ever liked Everless.
