If you’re reading this then you, like me, woke up and realized that it’s nearly December, and unlike the average American who begins to sweat over Christmas shopping, you’re saying, “EEK!! I’ve only got a few more weeks to meet my yearly reading goal.”
Remember kids: it’s very important to keep your promises to yourself, especially where books are concerned. 😉
Personally, I don’t consider it cheating to help me meet my Goodreads Reading Goal by throwing a few graphic novels or comic collections into the mix. I love reading comics and graphic novels anyway. It’s just an added bonus that I can down one a day when I suddenly notice that it’s September and I’m 10 Books behind.
- Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen
These Comics are some of my favorites! I follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter because seeing her posts always make me smile. Her comics often cover adulting, introversion, creativity, and relationships. Some of her stuff is more for girls, but as a general rule, my husband gets a kick out of them too. Plus, if you like one, there are two more in her series. That’s two more books down for the count. *thumbs up*
2. The Worriers Guide to Life by Gemma Correll
This one is a fairly eclectic collection of silly things about life, and punny little jokes. I shared more than half of them with my husband because I was sniggering aloud while I read it.
3. Heart and Brain: An Awkward Yeti Collection by Nick Seluk
This is another comic that I follow on multiple social media platforms. He started with mostly a Heart and Brain character interacting over varied life decisions. The cast of characters has since expanded to include Gut, Gallbladder, Tongue, Lungs, and other members of the body. The comics are hilarious and relatable to anyone who has a body with organs. (This one also has other collections in the series available if you like what you read)
4. Soppy: A Love Story by Philippa Rice
This one is about the simple things in a relationship that show love. It is sweet and funny. My husband and I read this one together, curled up under the same blanket. It was perfect.
5. Lunarbaboon: The Daily Life of Parenthood by Christopher Grady
I loved this one just as much for its humor as for its moments of gentle honesty. It talks so much about familial love which may not make you laugh, but it will definitely make you smile.
6. Little Moments of Love by Catana Chetwynd
This one runs along the same lines as Soppy, and I’d definitely recommend looking into it if you were a fan. It’s just comic after comic about being in a long-term relationship. Bonus: if you’re in a relationship with a super tall guy, there will be extra relatable laughs in store for you inside. It’s also a finalist for Goodread’s Choice Award’s 2018! So, I know I’m not the only one who liked it.
Happy reading! 🙂
