My Boyfriend Is a Bear | Pamela Ribon
Bear meets girl. Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she's ever had! He's considerate, he's sweet, he takes care of her. But he's a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?

I was worried that this human plus bear romantic comedy might be too weird, but it‘s just right. Sweet, funny and surprisingly real. A #graphicnovel with plenty of heart.

Lizpixie I loved this one too❤️ 9mo

The day-to-day relationship stuff is pretty funny with a real bear as Nora‘s boyfriend.

My morning reads pushed me past my Goodreads goal! Really enjoyed "Nothing Can...", a high school GN without the hyper-melodramatic BS. "Screwhead" was strange, but, by the author's own admission, never meant for public distribution.
"My Boyfriend is a Bear" was just weird. Sincere and sweet, but the couple were in their own fairy tale bubble while everyone else is questioning the sanity and safety of the situation.

This graphic novel was so sweet! I first heard about this from Margot Wood on YouTube, she‘s formerly from Epic Reads but now works for Oni Press, the graphic novel publishers that this is from. Once you get past the fact she‘s dating a real black bear(complete with sexy time, adult themed panels)you just live for how cute & sweet it is. Bear kinda reminds me of the hubby, great at cuddles, loves his kitty, terrible at cleaning up his crap.10⭐️

DivineDiana This sounds and looks like a heartwarming read! 1y

#BookMail Pt4 Finally There‘s this graphic novel which was recommended by Margot Wood,formerly from Epic Reads.This looks super cute, it‘s about Nora who has always had bad luck with men.Then she meets a bear while on a hike & he turns out to be the most romantic & caring boyfriend she‘s ever had. Yes, I know. It‘s an inter species relationship which a lot of people will go ewww about. But if you suspend belief for awhile, it‘s a very sweet story.

This one would be a five if not for the ableist language and low-key fatmisia. The plot is what it says on the tin: Nora‘s boyfriend is a literal bear. The art on this is gorgeous; I especially loved the hibernation art. A sweet romance (featuring a garbage mum and bestie)! tw: cat death (from old age)

I heard about this on the #NPR #popculturehappyhour podcast on the ‘what‘s making us happy‘ section yesterday...
It was described as weird, funny, sweet and romantic and after yesterday‘s news I decided this sounded like just what I needed. Downloaded on a whim, and so glad I did!
It was exactly that... cute, quirky, and made me smile.... 💕👍📚

Blaire I love popculture happy hour, despite the fact that I‘ve almost never seen the shows of movies they discuss. Just love listening to them chat. 😀 1y

3⭐️ I cant decide if I liked this book. It's a love story of a woman and bear. The bear is everything she has ever wanted in a man, and she loves him. The bear is not anipahorphic, it does not talk, but it does get a job, fix things, etc. The panel about mating season being fun… Can‘t get that one out of my head. Especially when there is an illustration later in the book of 2 bears mating, that the human bear mating thing ...eeeeeee.

This was a breath of fresh air for me. I was truly surprised at how deep and touching this story was, and appreciated how different it was from the majority of graphic novels that I tend to read. I loved the main character Nora, and sympathized with her never ending struggle to find a decent, and respectful man that will treat her right. She ends up meeting Bear, and falling in love with him. ⬇️⬇️ continued below⬇️⬇️

Clwojick As you can imagine, living and loving a 500 lb bear can come with its challenges, but also it's perks. I will admit to smiling, laughing, and even crying while reading this.

I have received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Nora has dated a lot of jerks. Now all she wants is a boyfriend that will cuddle. Though friends and family are not always supportive of her choice, she finds the perfect boyfriend in a bear. Their relationship is cute and almost perfect, but what will happen when winter comes?

Weird premise, but I loved it!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Smartypants I totally need a bear! 🐻 2y
croberts51 It was cute, but I thought it could have had more story/plot. More conflicts or something. 2y

Char @WanderingBookaneer just cause it made me curious - will the cats have to do a quarantine? My partner has nixed me getting a cat or dog until after I join her in Australia in a few more years. Cause she doesn't want us or an animal to have to deal with the crazy long quarantine to go into Australia. 2y
WanderingBookaneer @Char : No quarantine from PR to FL. 2y
Char @WanderingBookaneer that is awesome. Still a logistical challenging event but not as icky as quarantine. 2y

Nora has dated quite a few douche bags in her day. (She said it...) It is no surprise that she wants her next boyfriend to be a CUDDLER! Good Listener! Brave! Smart! Funny! A homebody & outdoorsy fella. WHEW! Clearly she's not one to settle but she knows it's going to be rough finding the guy. Perhaps that why she's so open to a relationship with the bear that pursues her later that evening.
Cute but maybe a little too real, not whimsical.
