LOOK WHOSE FINALLY WRITING SOME BOOK REVIEWS!
Between school (5 AP classes are NOT conducive to reading), and college apps (NEVER ENDING but IMPORTANT), I haven’t had time to read.
But these are all super quick, funny, light little cartoon-graphic novel reads. I’m trying to get into reading more again, I swear.
I read all of these towards the end of September.
These are all books I read via receiving e-arcs from Netgalley. And this is my honest review.
Fowl Language: The Struggle Is Real
by Brian Gordon
“This Guy’s Comics Hilariously Sum Up the Truth About Being a Parent.”
He’s back, and he’s totally got parenting figured out this time. KIDDING.
It’s another collection of Fowl Language comics, ripped from the headlines of this author’s actual friggin’ life.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll swear. It’s almost exactly like a day of parenting, except without the annoying little people.
Heart and Brain: Body Language: An Awkward Yeti Collection
by The Awkward Yeti, Nick Seluk
Heart and Brain: Body Language continues the adventures of the loveably conflicted sentimental Heart and rational Brain, as well as other bodily inhabitants like Gallbladder, Muscle, and Tongue.
Warm-hearted and laugh-out-loud funny, these comics bring our inner struggles to vibrant, humorous life.
How to Be Perfectly Unhappy
by Matthew Inman, The Oatmeal
In How To Be Perfectly Unhappy, Inman explores the surprising benefits of forgetting about “happiness,” and embracing instead the meaningful activities that keep us busy and interested and fascinated.
Lady Stuff: Secrets to Being a Woman
by Loryn Brantz
Home manicure tips, awkward seduction techniques, scoping out the snack table, and—most important—prioritizing naps: Lady Stuff reveals these womanly secrets and more. In sections like “Grooming and Habitat Maintenance,” “Mating Habits,” and others, these brightly colored, adorable comics find the humor in the awkwardness of simply existing.
Like the work of Sarah Andersen, Gemma Correll, and Allie Brosh, Loryn Brantz’s Jellybean Comics are accessible and funny; lighthearted takes on the author’s everyday experiences and struggles being a woman.
