Do you ever feel like sometimes the online world is all talking about one book, and you haven't read it and now feel like you are missing out on something? Honestly, I feel like this happens to me frequently and this time I had to get in the know, and as an added bonus, I got to discover a new comic book series along the way.
Lumberjanes features a pack of girls from all walks of life at a summer outdoor camp. They share a cabin, but most importantly, they share a friendship that camp and all the adventures within only helps to grow stronger.
Lumberjanes is a fun new series that I look forward to following. It is entertaining, but also provides themes that prove to be more complex. As I was reading, I found myself frequently having to search out my books. Where would I find them? In my kids' rooms! They wanted to read them too! I loved seeing this love of reading, but what I appreciated more was the conversations that resulted from what a friendship looks like to even what love looks like in its many forms, even despite our differences.
I cannot close this post without commenting on the artwork. I can't tell you what makes it stand out, but it does. It's eye-catching. It's colorful. It's detailed, and I found myself wanting to just admire the art for extended periods of time while reading the story.
Now I must wait to experience the next installment. In the meantime, I'm thankful my dear husband gifted me the books to enjoy when the desire arises.
Have you had the pleasure of reading Lumberjanes? What have you thought of the series so far?

I haven't read these but I hear good things. My apathy for GNs keeps holding me back.ReplyDelete
Jenny ... I really enjoyed them, but I'm also a fan of GNs in general. There are some really good ones out there, but there are others that are not so good. I would recommend that you give them a try!Delete
I miss out on the popular books all the time, but usually catch up later. This sounds like an adorable series! Love books about female friendships. :)ReplyDelete
Alexia561 ... I am usually quite behind on the popular books, but I do pick one up every now and then. Sometimes, the hype can affect my read though!Delete
I had a lot of fun with this series. I really want to own it at some point.ReplyDelete
Kailana ... I love that I have these ones in print now. I will definitely revisit them!Delete
I only read the first two of these and then got busy with other books so now I think I need to go back and reread before moving on. I loved them though!ReplyDelete
Kristen M. ... They get really fun after the first two! You gotta go back and reread and move on!Delete
I read the first one and wasn't impressed. I felt like the story started in a really weird place, and I couldn't keep track of all the girls.ReplyDelete
Kami ... I had a hard time keeping track of the girls originally too, but I think it got better, especially has their personalities really developed.Delete
