This one was okay. After reading French milk, it was more of Lucy traveling around Europe so more yummy food, wine, etc. Throughout she contemplates the title of the book and what it means. Like I said it was okay and interesting but not one of my favorite books of hers but I'm glad to have read it.
2 1/2 stars

I decided to start participating in #7in7readathon 2 days after it started. I‘m joining in because I plan to read several books on Saturday for #reversereadathon & I figured I could read 7 things between now & Sunday. Tonight I completed Astronaut, started & finished Giant Days Vol. 1, & began Age of License. I may not count Astronaut for 7in7 since I technically started it before the readathon began. It‘ll depend on what I‘ve finished by Sunday.

Jinjer Good idea to just jump on in! Why not right?🤷‍♀️ 1y

“What I really love about travel is that it takes us outside ourselves... it unhomes you. And allows you to see possibilities for change, growth, a new life.” I am a huge fan of Knisley‘s work. This one covers her time adventuring through Europe, visiting friends, and a brief love affair. She is so honest and I love her attention to detail. She savors each new food and experience she tries.

I absolutely loved this travelogue, even more than Relish! Perhaps because it had the structure of the trip to hang on? But a real life trip to Europe isn't much of a plot...I don't understand why, it's just a lovely book. ☺️ #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon number 3!

Chelsea.Poole LOVE Lucy! ♥️ 2y

Natasha.C.Barnes @Clwojick I have! I liked it well enough, but for some reason I'm connecting way more to this one. I think it's just a matter of what topics she's discussing and what lines up with what I'm thinking about bc I couldn't really give a reason that this one is "better" at all. I'm definitely going to read 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @suvata It's lovely, I recommend it! 2y
batsy Hahaha @Suet624 I was wondering about the same thing 😄 2y
Suet624 @batsy one thing though: a vegan on a commune wouldn‘t have good shoes. 😁 2y

Lucy Knisley is so talented! I love her drawings so much... I may or may not have just ordered French Milk so I can own a copy and reread....

Starting my second Knisley of the day! This all graphic novel #readathon has been my best idea in a long while. Since my last update I've finished: Black Panther n1-12, Paper Girls n6-13, Sex Criminals V3, and World of Wakanda n1-5. Pure joy during all of it.

A solid like, not love. The theme of being in your mid-twenties and trying to figure life out was great;Knisley is such an open, honest, charming writer that I couldn't help but enjoy her story. However, the format wasn't my favorite. The drawing was fine, and her color illustrations were beautiful. But it's a travelogue/diary/sketchbook, and though the timeline was linear, it felt anecdotal, with some abstract visuals to explore big thoughts.

Quality #libraryhaul. Not that I need more books, but I was there dropping stuff off anyway. Might as well.

Zelma Does anyone else have the problem of getting books from the library or bookstore and then wanted to raid your shelf? So silly. 3y
