Getting on with my continuing series... Next up... Giant days volume 4!
3 Freshers at a UK university. Life going crazy... What's not to love!?!?!
I ❤️ Daisy. 😅
At first, it was a great deal about Esther, who drove me crazy, and the story seemed to be all over the place. I soon readjusted to the fast pace. Then, between Mario references, the relevance of house-hunting troubles, and the delight of low-budget film mockery, I found myself smiling. The characters just continue to delight. Not my favorite storylines, I admit, but it still left me in it for the next issue.
I had to put The Trauma Cleaner down for a bit, it‘s very difficult to read some of it without being overwhelmed, so I thought Giant Days would cheer me up! I love this series about 3 friends in their first years at University in Sheffield, England. Esthers a mess after leaving her boyfriend, Susan‘s a mess after McGraw & Daisy just wants everyone to be happy. And clean. But mostly happy. Highly recommend 5⭐️
#BookMail Pt1 Kicking off another week of mail(I tell ya, online layby is a dangerous thing!😱)with Vol4 of this brilliant graphic novel series about 3 friends navigating University in England. Juggling study with boys(and girls)and trying to decide who they want to be. Funny, poignant & wonderful. Plus, the art is amazing.
These girls 😍 their quirky adventures and the illustration style just work so well and feel so relatable even in their absurdity. I forget they're British though 😂 their accents are definitely North American in my head 😜 and with the free enthusiastic child care offered by grandparents, I'm able to enjoy comics and parfaits and coffee while it's hot! 😱☕📚 #mommyreads #comics #booksandcoffee
Ok, I lied. I said I was reading The Encyclopedia of Early Earth next and I am loving it, but I also just discovered that Hoopla has some more Giant Days and my impatience to get to it is ruining my enjoyment of that sweet and beautiful "Encyclopedia"-so I'd better switch for now. #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon
Such a balance between these lovely ladies. Keeping up with Susan and her turbulent ride through Tinder dating and Esther's money problems is entertainment enough. But Daisy and the things she ends up in always crack me up.
Quotes and snippets:
"Sisters before sisters, ester. Boys stink and are gross. Don't fall for their tricks."
My kitchen is a mess. My Christmas tree is still up (I just love it so much). I have multiple loads of laundry that needs done. But I all I want to do is read.
Littens, how do you read all the things and get all the housework done? I know audiobooks are a great solution but I want to read and not listen!
Pro tip: if after 8 hours or so of readathon, your family starts whining with neglect, agree to watch a movie or tv show but also read a comic book or graphic novel on the Hoopla app! This one is cute as all Giant Days are cute., with one steamy kiss for Daisy! #24in48 #24in48readathon @24in48 #hoopla
