Last Man: The Rescue

I wish I had ordered and read this as soon as I finished book 5 because wow¬†this book has more twists than I anticipated. On the other hand, I’m so glad that I took my time getting to it because I sped through this last night, and I think that this may be the final installment. I’m going to keep this as spoiler-free as possible, but obviously there will be spoilers everywhere. So strap in, Fangirls, it’s a bumpy ride.

Last Man: The Order

Up until last week, I thought this was the final book in the Last Man series, but it’s not!

Something New by Lucy Knisley

Fangirls, Lucy Knisley seems like a damn rad lady. I was introduced to her work by Natalie, who wrote here for a spell. Natalie showed me French Milk, one of Knisley’s old books, about living (and eating) in France. It’s beautiful and poignant. Plus I have instant respect for creators who write and illustrate their own work. Knisley’s book, Something New, is about her relationship with her friend and on-and-off-boyfriend (now husband). It shows their relationship from the beginning through their honeymoon (which they took 5 months after the wedding). It’s a neat story, and a great way to catalogue memories.
