Snug: A Collection of Comics about Dating Your Best Friend by Catana Chetwynd – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
For fans of her comic series, for anyone who’s been in a relationship (though maybe more of the younger generation for some), for a heartwarming read that will make you smile and happily sigh
Why bother getting out of bed when you could stay bundled up with that special someone and a book of cozy, cute comics. From the author of the bestselling Little Moments of Love comes Snug, a collection of comics that perfectly captures the honest, playful, and relatable snapshots of romantic life. Chetwynd’s second book has the same charming and inviting style as her first and includes 50 percent new, never-before-shared comics. Snug is a celebration of the quirks and peculiarities of every one of us—and the magic that happens when we find our matching puzzle piece.
Ahhh, what’s not to like?? 😍 To address that missing fifth star, it’s due to the abrupt ending. It’s a series of comics, so maybe that’s somewhat expected, but it would have been a smoother ending if the last one had been something with them going to sleep, or going home, rather than just another general one. The ordering of these could have been tweaked for a more comprehensive effect of their developing relationship.
That aside, they’re all so cute! Her simple art style and simple language reflect the ease of being with your chosen Someone after the initial phase of worry. The world “relatable” is thrown around a lot, but I truly think it’s impossible for someone who’s been in a healthy long-term relationship not to see themselves in at least one of these comics. If you haven’t, use this as a guide. It’s really for anyone, attached or not, so long as you like sweet moments and smiling. 🥰 Some comics will be more familiar to younger generations, with mobile ordering, technological references, and recently popular fads like tiny plants and weighted blankets, but it all depends on the kind of person you are!
The amount of times I laughed out loud got to the point where my Chosen Someone stopped asking what I was laughing at and just smiled instead. THAT’S a good sign!
Details about the book:
– YES, there are brand new comics! If you follow her, you’ll still have ones you haven’t seen before. 50% of them are non-released brand new ones, according to the book details!
– The art style is the same as her standard; no surprises there!
– The formatting in the ebook works out fine, so it’s a viable option if needed, though I definitely recommend getting the physical copy for that additional joy of holding a book and seeing the smooth pages ^.^
Thanks to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel for alerting me to this book’s existence and giving me a free ARC to read and honestly review so I didn’t have to wait until February to delight in her original comics!!
