Little Moments of Love | Review

Title: Little Moments of Love
Author: Catana Chetwynd
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Release Date: June 19, 2018
Source: Netgalley

Soppy meets Sarah's Scribbles in this sweet collection of comics about the simple, precious, silly, everyday moments that make up a relationship.
What began as stray doodles on scraps of paper became an internet sensation when Catana Chetwynd's boyfriend shared her drawings online. Now, Catana Comics touches millions of readers with its sweet, relatable humor. Little Moments of Love collects just that-the little moments that are the best parts of being with the person you love.
I downloaded this one on a whim from Netgalley. It was available to read now, so I couldn't help myself. It was so worth it!

-what i liked-
  • The drawings! This is basically a whole bunch of little comics, and the drawings are too cute. There's even an adorable one on the cover!
  • It's so relatable to anyone who has ever been in a relationship. I began to love Catana and her boyfriend; they go through the same things that everyone else does! 
  • It's funny. There are so many cute little humorous parts throughout the comics. 

-what i disliked-
  • I wish it were longer. I wanted there to be more! I kept trying to flip the pages even though there wasn't anything else.

A Novella About Adam (aka my least favorite Shatter Me character)

Fracture Me (Shatter Me, #2.5)Title: Fracture Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Series: Shatter Me #2.5
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: December 17, 2013

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam's perspective.
As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam's focus couldn't be further from the upcoming battle. He's reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend's life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James's safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It's time for war.
On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor-but taking down Warner, Adam's newly discovered half brother, won't be that easy. The Reestablishment can't tolerate a rebellion, and they'll do anything to crush the resistance... including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

As I'm not a huge fan of Adam, I don't have much to say about this novella. I did like that it gave me an inside look of Adam's thoughts, which did make him grow on me a bit. I think I only ever didn't like him because I hated that he was with Juliette. I just didn't see what Juliette ever saw in him, probably because I was just so team Warner the whole time. However, this short story did make me appreciate Adam as a character, and I'm excited to read more about him in the future.

Also, as always, Mafi's writing style was gorgeous. She brings all her characters to life so well. I feel like I really know Adam now.
