Lumberjanes Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson, Shannon Watters & Grace Ellis | REVIEW & DISCUSSION

Hey, guys! I am super excited to discuss another graphic novel, one I really loved, which is a rare commodity for me, and that is the first novel to the Lumberjanes series! I went into it with no expectations. I just knew it was something super quick I could get through before the end of the year, and I am so glad I decided to pick this one up because it was absolutely fabulous. But let’s go ahead and get into the review!

Synopsis:

FRIENDSHIP TO THE MAX!

At Miss Qiunzilla Thiskwin Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet’s camp for hard-core lady-types, things are not what they seem. Three-eyed foxes. Secret caves. Anagrams. Luckily, Jo, April, Mal, Molly, and Ripley are five rad, butt-kicking best pals determined to have an awesome summer together… And they’re not gonna let a magical quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! The mystery keeps getting bigger, and it all begins here. ”

My Thoughts:

I did not want this to finish! I just kept reading it, and it was giving me such joy because the characters are precious, and I swear two of them have to be gay, and they were women and just…I was so into this story. I was just having a good time, and then it was over, and I was like, “What? There has to be more!” And then I got all sad when there wasn’t anymore…But I really enjoyed this.

I loved the art style. I thought it was super cute and really fit the tone and style of the story. I thought it went well with the text and what was going on, and I just really loved it. I loved the colors that were used and just how this book was designed as well! I just thought it was really adorable and beautiful, and I really enjoyed it.

I also just really loved the characters. They were literally my heart and soul. All of them were super likable, even Jen. I didn’t find her annoying, even when she didn’t believe the others about what had been going on, and I really loved that. I don’t think there was a single character that I disliked, and I just really loved all of them and all of the relationships we got to see throughout this story. It was really beautiful just to be reading a story about a friendship between all of these girls!

I also really loved the premise. I don’t normally read books that have a camp setting, and it was even better because it was a camp for girls and the backbone of it was about these girls who could survive and do all of these outdoors things without a man’s help. This book really appreciated women, and I really loved that!

Overall, I really loved the writing, the story, the characters, the world, and the gorgeous artwork. I have to get my hands on the next volume because it will probably be just as good as this volume, and I am looking forward to exploring more of these characters!

4-and-a-half-stars
