    One thought on “Blue Bloods: The Graphic Novel”

    1. I'd have to say this graphic novel is so good It made me want to read the actual series.First, i think the plot is so unique from other vampire ya novels that I've read so far.Two, the illustrations Oh they are just so beautiful!What else? The ending It was kind of intriguing and I reall could relate to this Sky girl. I just don't understand why she had to have a really weird name Lol.

    2. To see full review click here. As you know by now, I'm a huge fan of Melissa de la Cruz's series Blue Bloods. This series had everything for me great characters, New York glamour, paranormal, intricate mysteries, and some pretty good world building. However, as of late I've been getting annoyed with the books. It started with the fifth book. A lot of people thought the series should've ended after the fourth book, but I wasn't so sure. I thought there was still a lot to work with this series. Th [...]

    3. I don't remember the first book being quite so interesting, so I'd say this is a win for the graphic novel.It's been years since I read Blue Bloods, and even though it's got a huge following, I never really managed to go back for more. Honestly, I can't remember exactly why, though. I vaguely remember thinking it was a bit too full of unnecessarymethingat made it thick and boring. However, this graphic novel made me think that it might be worth a re-read. Maybe it's only because all the clunky b [...]

    4. It's been a while since i read Blue blood but i felt like this graphic novel was pretty true to the book. Of course a lot has been cut but the important parts were there and the art was pretty similar to the way i imagined most of the characters. I hope the rest of the series will be made as well!

    5. Sigh 3.5 I got sucked always. I have never read this book in its original form and now I'm kind of bummed I didn't buy the three that was at the library bookstore yesterday. Maybe on Monday they will still be there.Blue Bloods reminded me of a few YA supernatural books that I've read in the past. A little bit of Fallen by Lauren Kate, a little bit of Mortal Instruments, a little bit of Beautiful Creatures. I'm sure there is more, but those were the ones I could identify right away.Schuyler [...]

    6. i really can't wait to see how this turns out. they made a graphic novel for twilight and it was, in my opinion, really well done. the artist would have to be perfect thoughe problem with changing mediums (ex. book -> movie/graphic novel) is that everybody has their own idea of how each of the characters should look and how their surroundings should look. only a really great artist who is familiar with the series will bee able to pull it off well.

    7. Very interesting take on what vampires are. I think I have a new book series to start next year now thanks to reading the graphic novel.

    8. I remember trying to read the first book when I was a senior in high school and I couldnt get into it. So seeing that there was a Graphic Novel was great because I got to see the main plot of the book. I was really wrong about it. I had the setting was like in the 1600's the whole time. I didn't know that it changes. I am interested to learned Sky and Jack's relationships. As well as Jack's father relationship with Sky's mother. I personally think they were lovers but she left him to be with Sky [...]

    9. The art was really good in some moments and good in others. So basically I like the art style. And this one was interesting. I been contemplating whether to read the books or not and thought, huh, didn't know there was a graphic novel and wanted to start with that. After reading, I think I might finally get around to reading the books. Might. Heard the series is like Gossip Girl with vampires, in a way or something.

    10. A fun little vampire story. Very white and old money (vampire) crowd. There is even a joke about one looking like Kate Moss. Um, har? I don't know, the art is good, the story is okay. Entertainment without any vitamins? I'll probably read the next installment if/when it comes out unless I forget to, which is a distinct possibility.

    11. While I am a lover of graphic novels and a lover of young adult books, I haven't read any graphic novel versions of ya in the past. I really enjoyed the Blue Bloods series though, which I started earlier this year, and thought this would be really good. For the most part, I really enjoyed this graphic novel. The colors were great, and many of the characters were drawn spot-on. My biggest concern is how Jack Force and Cordelia Van Alen were drawn. Jack is supposed to be super hot and fine. He was [...]

    12. With the release of the final book in the Blue Bloods series, GATES OF PARADISE, it's nice that the graphic novel adaptation of the first book is coming out now. I read it before GATES OF PARADISE to remind myself where Schuyler Van Alen and her friends started, eight books ago. I think other fans of the series will also find it a pleasant refresher, although I don't know if they'll continue to read the graphic adaptations.The story is still good. Young prep school kids are getting murdered. Oth [...]

    13. 3.5 out of 5 starsI haven't read the series yet, but I think I got the gist of the story. In the beginning, I felt like there was something big that was missing because there were only a few pages dedicated for Catherine Carver's diary and I didn't quite understand what she was and who she was talking about.What I liked about it is that they put the role of each character and their reputation as well. And the illustrations were amazing too. I now have a picture in my mind of each character once [...]

    14. This graphic novel relates the story of the first novel in the eponymous Blue Bloods series.The first thing you will notice is that the art is absolutely dripping with vivacity and beauty. After reading it I leafed though it several more times just to gaze at the art. The characters look gorgeous and the character designs are distinct enough you never confuse characters. There are helpful tags as each character is introduced to help you remember each character's name and general role in the stor [...]

    15. A good example of how problematic adapting YA franchises to comics can be. However, I gave this 3 stars because the artwork by Alina Urusov was gorgeous. I'd like to see more of her work, with a better story.

    16. Yes, definitely going to try to get this. Depending on the price of course. My first priority is always the book itself rather than the comic of it.I like this new trend of making good YA novels into comic books. Broader audience, and just plain good.

    17. Rating: 5I didn't want this story to end because it was so exciting the art was really good. My real concern is that it reminded me of Mortal Instruments. Other than that the story was really engaging and again I can't say it enough, but the art was AMAZING!

    18. I read the first three books in the book series back in my 'twilight days' and the books were okay, not amazing.This graphic novel was alright actually, the art was good and the story was condensed really well.4/5

    19. So I haven't actually read the book but the graphic novel WAS SO COOL!!AND THE ART IS AMAZING YALLLIKE SO GOOOOOD!!!!

    20. Terrible. Awful. It is really an incredibly done summary of the book, highly confusing and incoherent. I'd have put it in my couldn't finish bookshelf but was stuck waiting at the car garage.

    21. I need the next one. So pretty and nice way to remind me of what happened in the beginning of the series.

    22. Fantastic art! I usually donate 95% of the books I've read to Little Free Libraries but I think I will be holding onto this one because the art is that good.Story line moves smoothly and is engaging, although I am not familiar with the books having read just this graphic novel. I am intrigued enough to search for the original book now.

    23. 2.5 stars.The plot was okay. The art was okay. The characters were okay. This book was (yep, you guessed it) okay.I definitely wouldn't read the full novels for this series.My first completed book for the Booktube-A-Thon (yes, I'm extremely behind). This meets the challenge "read a book you got because of the cover."
