Drinking at the Movies by: Julia Wertz

Drinking at the Movies

It has been a few weeks since I read this graphic novel and I am sorry to say that I can’t remember anything about it.  It was not memorable in any way.  I think while I was reading it , I was just trying to get through it.

I am struggling with finding graphic novels that I enjoy.  Maybe this genre isn’t for me but I will keep trying to see if anything clicks.

Any suggestions?

I gave this book 1 crown.

Page by Paige

After moving to a new city pretty much unwillingly, Paige decides that she has the unique opportunity to really work on the way that she views herself.  Her secret passion is Art and she is slowly able to make some friends and open up to them about who she really is.

It is hard to put yourself  out there to be judged by others and Paige takes a leap of faith and finds that it’s ok to take that chance.

The artwork in this graphic novel is beautiful.  The images are a story themselves.

I gave this book 5 crowns.

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.
