We need more..

Recently I read two illustrated novels back to back:

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 
w/ Camille Rose Garcia’s illustrations 

 A Monster Calls

And I’ve come to the conclusion that there needs to be more novels like this.
I don’t mean picture books or comics or graphic novels, all of which I love, read & own.
I mean just proper novels with illustrations.

journal page w/ a few of my favourite things: like the awesome illustrations in A Monster Calls <3

 These were both library books that I think I'm going to have to buy now lol

Another illustrated novel I am dying to get my hands on is:

Because Frankenstein is one of my favourite books and Gris Grimly is one of my favourite illustrators. :)
And evidently, this version keeps the original text of the novel & just adds Gris Grimly's awesome illustrations. 
(Which would make it probably an easier read for people who aren't already obsessed with the book like I am. Garcia's illustrations helped me get thru Alice in Wonderland- a book I've started & not finished more than once..)

Do you know of any other illustrated novels I should check out?

I am Anne. :) With an "e".
(a silent "e".)

or, more formally, Anne~Juliet.
Which is how I sign my artwork.

Morbid Little Girl which is a nick name I've had for a long time.
It's also the name of my creepy-cute character that you will see doodled around here.
(more about her later)

Like the name suggests this blog is going to be about my books :)
Books that I fill, books that I make & books that I read.
I keep journals which are a crazy sketchbook-bullet journal-scrapbook-diary hybrid.

misc. pages

I also like to do make my own journals (for myself or friends or my etsy shop).

journals I've made and/or filled

And lastly, I read books. A lot. Non-fiction, children's lit, (and some YA), science fiction, fantasy, classics & historical fiction.
I'm currently redoing my wall of books so there might be some sheflies in the near future.

If any of this sounds like something you'd be interested in, stick around ;)
