Relish by Lucy Knisley

9781596436237I’ve wanted this book for a long, long time, Fangirls. Finally, it’s in my possession. It seemed like whenever I had the money to buy it, I forgot to order it. And when I didn’t have the money, I remembered or saw it somewhere. Regardless, its all mine now and I am ever so happy. Of course, Relish is just as incredible as I knew it would be.

Kate or Die Webcomic

Fangirls! This week, while looking around for some new webcomics, I found myself going back again and again to one of my favorites. So, I thought it only made sense to talk about that one.

Hey there, Fangirls! As a huge fan of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s work, I was ecstatic about his newest release. And even more so after I read it. The Scott Pilgrim series was the first comic series I read, and some of the first comics I had read in general. His graphic novel Lost At Sea quickly became a favorite book of mine. O’Malley’s ability to match witty humor with meaningful insight captivates me. Seconds is a masterpiece & a new essential piece of O’Malley’s incredible line up.

A few months ago, Fangirls, I finally got around to reading the Virgin Suicides. I had heard of the book, seen that the movie was on Netflix, and decided I had read the book before I watched the movie. Duh. The story of the Lisbon sisters is very dark & fully charged with adolescent feelings & fascination. To my surprise, I ended up really enjoying the movie more than the book. Which, might be a first for me.

Unfortunately, yes. I did see this movie first. If I had known that this was a comic, I certainly would have read it ages ago. But sometimes, you’re just not in the know and you don’t realize it was a book first until the movie has ended. I’ve heard, and sometimes agreed, with that idea that whatever you experience first, you’ll enjoy better. It’s what you’ll compare the second to. But, rather than being able to pick one, I’m finding that they each make me look at the other one a bit differently.

Now, Fangirls, I read this book when I was a freshman in high school. I loved it, I read it very quickly. I was nervous about watching this movie and about writing this article because I don’t have the best memory, Fangirls. This will not be an in depth & detailed comparison of the book & movie. I simply finally got around to watching a movie adapted from a great book, and it wasn’t half bad.
