@xicanti STILL #currentlyreading lol, sorry 😞😞 See my last post. I started back today on the rides to and from doctor and in the waiting room. I was down and the only place I can concentrate is when I am trying vehemently to avoid social contact. Actually I interacted with a cute baby in the waiting room and I haven‘t done that in about 20 years, lol. They really freak me out. Anywhoo... hope you‘re all having a great day!!! ✌🏽❤️ #catsoflitsy

I stayed up late last night reading this fun book with an assist from chocolate covered pretzels. Squirrel Girl is awesome and optimistic. She doesn't let baddies or low self-esteem get her down for long. The text messages with various Avengers was particularly humorous!

I recently watched an animated show called Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors where I got my first glimpse of Squirrel Girl. I found this middle grade book on Hoopla and it's a really fun read!

This was such a fun read! I‘ve loved the Squirrel Girl comics for a long time, so it was great to see that the novel reflected the spirit (& sense of humor) of the comics! I loved how Doreen interacted with Ana Sofia. The later texts & face-to-face conversations with different Avengers & other heroes had me rolling on the floor with laughter. I would definitely recommend it to comics fans!

while I haven‘t been able to lay my paws... I mean hands... on the graphic novels for Squirrel Girl a perusal of shelves at the library two weeks ago led me to this! After the novel edition of Lumber Janes I knew I had to try this out.

I have not been disappointed Doreen Green is amazing. #squirrelpower

If you can‘t tell by this picture I love Squirrel Girl. She‘s my favorite superhero because 1) she‘s hilarious 2) she‘s so relatable 3) she‘s not sexualized in any way and has a realistic figure 4) she defeats villains in ways that don‘t include violence and 5) she‘s unbeatable!

Fun. Silly. Sweet. I requested this from the library for my son thinking it was a graphic novel. It is simply a chapter book. Neither kid was interested in reading it. oops. I read it because I had taken up library staff time to transfer it to my branch. (Puns always intended.) It is a cute and positive book for kids - not meant for me. My guess is a kid would give it a higher rating.

AMAZING. definitely added to my list of favorites. It's quirky and fun, with footnotes, chat logs, and chapters from different characters' perspectives — including that of AN ACTUAL FREAKING SQUIRREL. I love it and recommend wholeheartedly 11/10 ❤️

Multitasking while the babe naps. Konnyaku and carrots are boiling while shitake are rehydrating. Going to make ground tofu with vegetables from this little cookbook. Taking a brief rest to imbibe mokapot coffee, eat a cinnamon roll from the bakery next to the ENT (colds for everyone 🎉), and trying to wrap up this adorable novel. #mommyreads #booksandcoffee

So I am not the biggest fan of the graphic Novel Squirrel girl, but I love her in the novel by Shannon Hale. I think she qualifies for the #kingofwishfulthinking. She is always hoping for the good, to be better than she is, and to help the world be a better place. We need more of her kind of optimism. #characters2017

Shannon Hale and Dean Hale's YA Marvel superhero tie-in novel (charmingly illustrated by Bruno Mangyoku) is a fun-filled delight from beginning to end with great humour (including some knowing winks at the Avengers universe), characters you can really root for (not least the perennially optimistic and indomitable Doreen) and more squirrels than you can shake an acorn at.

I think we're expecting more rain later, so best to get a little outdoor reading in while I can.

xicanti I hope many squirrels stop by to visit while you read! 2y
KennethTolesJr I saw somewhere that she's one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel universe. I definitely do not know enough about her. And I call myself a comic book nerd... 2y
quietjenn @xicanti sadly, no squirrels - perhaps they were all busy fighting crime. Lots of birbs though, so at least there was that. 2y
quietjenn @KennethTolesJr She's unbeatable! As many a foe will tell you! The comics are super entertaining so highly recommend them. And her rise to notoriety has been fairly recent, so not knowing doesn't call your comic nerd cred into question at all, I promise. (But you should totally get on it, 😉.) 2y
KennethTolesJr @quietjenn Thanks for helping my pride. 😂I will certainly get on it soon. She seems interestingly quirky, and I live that life also, so it's a fit. 2y

My daughter and I powered through this in 2 days. It's one of the most joyful, unabashedly positive things I've ever read and, as a novelized origin story, it worked on every level. It was fast paced and engaging enough to keep a five yo on the edge of her chair, and so damn funny, I basically made this face --> 😍the whole time we were reading it. Squirrel Girl and Shannon Hale are unbeatably awesome.

I was sad for this book to end, I've enjoyed reading it to my daughter at bedtime. Shannon Hale (Princess in Black series) did an amazing job with Squirrel Girl's beginnings, creating a lovable teen super hero with just the right amount of humor and Marvel guest stars. Girl power, squirrel power, this book has it all. 🐿
