I was drawn to this simply because of its cover and was surprised by how sci-fi it was. A fun, fast story that somehow gets away with loads of strage plot twists. A must read for all #strangerthings fans!

Everytime I walk into my favorite bookstore I always see this book. I'm so glad I finally read the first volume. I loved all the 80s nostalgia and the graphics in the first volume. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

tracey38 I've heard such good things about this one. I really want to read it soon, too. 1mo

I‘m giving this a “pick” for now. We shall see if I readdress that after reading book two. The artwork is cool. The story jumps around quite a bit, but once you get used to it it‘s easy to follow.

Welp... what I thought was just allergies has turned into an illness of some sort... stuffy/runny nose (somehow at the same time!?), cough, chills and headache. Needless to say I called out of work today.
At least I have piles of books, a cosy bed, and all the tea I can stomach to soothe me! 🤒😷😨

I‘m actually reading book one, which has more than just the first volume, but I paused at the end of where volume 1 is. Who wants to read 2 books and only get credit for 1? I loved this. Love the 80s vibe, love the drawing, and love that I don‘t have a single thing figured out about the story yet! On to volume 2! Reading this via #hoopla on my iPad

AlizaApp I love this series! 6mo
rjsthumbelina @AlizaApp I can see why everyone loves it so much now. I have finished the first 2 volumes and am making myself take a break from them so I don't blow through all 5! That's a dangerous thing about reading graphic novels digitally, especially when using hoopla - I can just keep downloading the next one, until I run out! 6mo

I'm still gushing over Paper Girls.
While, I'm normally not a fan of Sci-Fi, I actually fell in love with this graphic novel and I can't wait to pick up the rest of the volumes.
The illustrations, the colors, the characters, the story line everything about Paper Girls, I loved.
All 4 girls have their own personalities and they are a great team. They are very mature for their age but they are smart, witty and bad-ass.

I seem determined to forget my laptop charger everywhere I go today, including the bean-bag room (a”very quiet zone”) in the library on campus. I did not, however, forget reading material, so I shall allow some recreational reading and make up for the time not spent on my anthropology paper tomorrow. 💁🏻‍♀️

I liked it. Interesting concept. Sometimes hard to follow. The artwork is fantastic. I definitely see the Stranger Things similarities. I love the 80's setting. I had some trouble feeling connected to the characters, but all in all a good read. Not sure if I will continue with the series.

I'm into it. I have my problems with some of the language but it's the 80s so should be expected, I guess. I feel like we can get away from the 'insecure kid covers up her feelings with slurs' thing. But maybe that's just me...

Well that was super fun! Of course it would be, Brian K. Vaughan is a genius. I loved everything about this. Between the all girl cast of main characters, the 1980‘s setting, and the strange happenings, it had kind of a gender flipped Stranger Things vibe. I can already tell this will be a favorite series for me!

I too was a papergirl, but not in the 80s, and not as badass! This is a little odd to say the least; some good old 80s vibes with sci-fi thrown in. It's not my fave GN but I will definitely read the 2nd volume to see where it goes!

Mehso-so

Ok, so I‘ve finally read this one and it‘s meh. It comes highly recommended so I‘ll try the second volume but I‘m not really drawn into the story, even though it has elements I typically like. It kind of reads like how someone thinks things would go if they wrote it high, but they weren‘t really high.

Suzze I didn‘t even finish it. 12mo

Library haul! It's been so awfully hot in Germany this last week that my poor brain can only handle graphic novels at the moment. In the middle is War of the Worlds, flanked by the first two volumes of Paper Girls. I love Vaughan's Saga but I haven't read his other works yet.

April Stats!
Lots of audio for me this month, and over 1/2 of my books were memoir or nonfiction!
My top reads were Paper Girls and Kitchen Confidential.
I only finished one #freakyfriday read, but I tried and bailed on 4 for various reasons. I guess reading like someone else doesn‘t work for me, but it was an interesting experiment. #aprilstats

Just finished these thanks to @TracyReadsBooks 😘

Sometimes I don‘t recognize myself reading self- which I think is a good thing. I‘ve opened myself up to reading books (read graphic novels)I would have never normally read. This series is by the same author of Saga (which is still my fav). It has time travel and I love the 80s references (Radio Shack! 1988!) I am a little confused about what‘s happening plot-wise. . .

Ingerella I just started reading graphic novels too and am having so much fun with them. I think my favorite so far is The Best We Could Do, but I also love East of West. I liked Saga too! 1y
TracyReadsBooks I have more graphic novels for you to read!!! It‘s only a question of which to give you next?!? So many possibilities...And I love the adventuresome reading!!! 1y
ElishaLovesBooks @Ingerella I read The Best We Could Do also! I liked it learning her story and the art work was fabulous but I found some details confusing. I‘ll have to check out East of West! 1y
