More than 20 books in, and everyone’s favorite Jersey girl bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, is still going toe to toe with the bad guys. (And her own worst impulses.) Twisted Twenty-Six (November 12) puts Grandma Mazur in danger after she marries a local gangster who promptly keels over right after the wedding. Missing money puts the spotlight—and gun sights—on Grandma Mazur, but Stephanie is determined that no one will mess with her quirky grandma.

Janet Evanovich’s own quirkiness is in full display on her website, where she says in her bio, “I read comic books and I only watch happy movies. I motivate myself to write by spending my money before I make it. And when I grow up I want to be just like Grandma Mazur.”

We asked Evanovich what she’d been reading and loving lately—and one of those books is, indeed, a comic book. Read on to see all her picks.

The Hidden Kingdom (Wings of Fire Graphic Novel #3) by Tui T. Sutherland

My grandson loves the graphic novel versions of this series, and so do I. The dragons, and their story, come to life in beautiful illustrations. And as if you couldn’t possibly improve on dragons, book three also has a sloth!
