Listless Monday: Superhero Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature. Be sure to check out their lists!

Though I didn't quite get Listless Monday or Name That Book roaring again during bloggiesta, I'm hoping to do both features more regularly.  Today, I've got a Listless Monday of books that I've seen a lot more of popping up: superheroes.  Now, this doesn't mean Superman or Spiderman in the traditional sense, more like X-men - people with super powers who are trying to use them for good (most of the time).  I've kind of kept away from the magicians and sorcerers, though they fit into the super power category sometimes.  Anywho, I'd love to have your suggestions.

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Every Other Day by Jennifer Lyn Barnes. And if graphic novels are okay to mention: Sidekicks by Dan Santat.

    1. Ooh, good ones. I'll get them added, thanks!

  2. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Very X-Men-like. It was a great read! Speaking of which, who has my copy? Hmmmmm.....

    1. I've heard strange things about that book, but didn't know it was superpowers too - now I really want to read it!


Love it when you comment!
