I ❤️ Lucy Knisley. Her #graphicmemoirs are so realistic. Every mom can commiserate as Go to Sleep (I Miss You) accurately portrays the sleepless foggy days, adventures in breastfeeding, being enamored with your baby, and all the other little experiences of motherhood. I recommended this to my daughter whose baby recently turned 1. Would be a nice gift for any new mom.
This book came in last week, but it was still in a box until I asked about it. I'm glad I asked though because this book was fantastic. We first hear Robin's perspective then learn more about why her (single!) mom uprooted her daughter from Korea to ALABAMA. Meaty memoir, even though it's YA.

This book is laugh-out-funny, heartbreaking, poignant, incisive, and silly in equal measures.
One of the best graphics memoirs I have ever read, and I highly recommend it.

If you think comics are only for kids, think again! New post up at Book Riot today and I share a list of nonfiction graphic memoirs that are a great place to start for newbies to the form.
I am having an amazing reading month and a great start to my reading year all because Litsy turned me on to #graphicnovels & #graphicmemoirs. A genre I would have never really pictured myself reading. I even picked up a few more tonight. So thanks to all of you I am going to have to expand my annual #readinggoal. Just trying to think of a good number.
