Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride by: Lucy Knisley

Something New

I am still not into graphic novels like a lot of readers are.  However, I love Lucy Knisley’s writing and drawing style.  This is her latest book and it takes us through the year of prepping for her wedding day.

There is a lot DIY-ing and momzilla of the bride moments from this book and it was hilarious.  Her illustrations and coloring are incredible and a pleasure to look at.  I have read a majority of her work and have enjoyed it all.

I gave this book 5 crowns.


The only I graphic novel I enjoyed was Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley.  Does anyone have any suggestions for me?

Radiator Days by: Lucy Knisley


This is a compilation of Lucy’s earlier comics and there is no real continuity in the strips throughout the book.  Some of the comic strips were hilarious and others left me confused.  This book does contain some graphic images and “naughty” words and scenarios.

Although I am a fan of Lucy’s art, this was not my favorite book by her.  I am glad that I didn’t pick this one up first because I may not have continued with these graphic novels.  I highly recommend that read any of the other books by her.  Relish is still my favorite and I have to read her newest book which I got for Christmas.

I gave this book 2 crowns.

An Age of License by: Lucy Knisley

Age of License

Book #51 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.

I technically read this in August but I forgot to include it in my wrap up.

This is Lucy’s story about her time in Europe and her journey to self discovery.  She was sent to Europe to promote her book and speak at a few events.  She not only savored the cuisine of Europe but she was able to devour the lessons that she learned along the way.

Beautifully illustrated and the details were exquisite.  I love her work.

I gave this 5 crowns.

French Milk by: Lucy Knisley

French Milk

Book #30 for #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks.

This is one of Lucy Knisley’s earlier graphic novel memoirs and it chronicles her trip with her mother to Paris.  She draws images of her experience there and tells a story of how she and her mom traveled and what they ate and saw.

Lucy Knisley is still my favorite graphic novelist but I did like Relish a bit more then this.  It was a fun read and a great book for in between novels.

I gave this 4 crowns.
