Comic Review: Nimona, Lumberjanes & More

My first collection of Comic Books and Reviews!

Advertisements

These 5 were the FIRST comic books I’ve ever owned or read. I was always under the impression that they were nerdy and only offered something for those who liked superheros. Don’t get me wrong…I love my Marvel movies, but I just don’t see myself getting into the marvel comics. Who knows though, I didn’t think I’d like comics and here I am. I’ve since learned that comics offer so much more.

My comic love all started with Lady Killer. I spotted it on the shelf while I was patiently waiting for my husband. He was browsing for his first comic and while he walked out empty handed, a comic caught my attention by the spine. When I pulled it out and saw the cover, I was in love and immediately bought it. From there, I was addicted. I searched Instagram for more and ended up picking these other titles. I have since then been devouring them. I love how short and sweet they are and yet they can be entertaining or really pack a punch. It’s impressive how poetry and comics can do that. The artwork is fantastic too! I really appreciate all the talent that goes into each one of these.

Soppy has become a favorite and I can’t wait to gift these to friends and clients. And Lady Killer… hands down a favorite AND I just found out not too long ago that they are continuing the series! Woo hoo!! It was supposed to make it’s way out this Spring. I haven’t heard anything as of yet. If you hear something, let me know!

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Leigh Himes

She now had the “perfect” life, however it quickly made her realize just how much she was wrong.

Great Summer Read | 4/5 stars | Buy your copy of The One That Got Away

Overview: Abbey is a mom of two who’s doing her best to balance motherhood, being the perfect wife, and work, but she’s overworked and stressed. So when she finds out her husbands business is in trouble, she’s left with more than she can handle and forced to return that gorgeous red Marc Jacobs bag she bought for herself. While attempting to make the return she ends up falling and finds herself in an alternate universe. She now has the “perfect” life, however she quickly realizes it’s not at all what it seems.

What I loved: 
How easily I connected with the main character. It was humorous, fun, and light making it perfect for Summer. Definitely had some Freaky Friday vibes! The ending was perfection.

What I didn’t: A little slow in places.

If you liked The Devil Wears Prada or Freaky Friday then: this one is for you because its a perfect mash up of the two!

I received a copy from Hachette Books and Trisha through an Instagram giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

Book Review: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

“Some things you can never leave behind. They don’t belong to the past. They belong to you.”

Must Read | 5/5 stars | Buy your copy of The 5th Wave

Overview: 
When aliens suddenly appear and threaten to take over the planet, Cassie looses everything she’s ever know including her family. She’s left to take on the world alone, that is until she meets Evan.

What I loved: It jumps straight into the action. Being able to hear Cassie’s thoughts was a great element (and had me laughing). Makes you think about your own morals  and there’s a little romance too! Hello cliff hanger…

What I didn’t: Point of View changes were tricky.

If you liked Hunger Games, Maze Runner, or Divergent: this is right up your alley! And be sure to continue on with the series with The Infinite Sea!
