Happy 2020 glammies! For this month’s book club pick I decided to keep things super light. I don’t know about everyone else but this month and since the beginning of the year, I jumped headfirst into my goals. I have so many things I want to accomplish this year and have been investing A LOT of time, energy, and action into making sure I accomplish them.
Because I’ve been so preoccupied with other things(including taking this blog to a new level☺️), I haven’t had as much time as I usually would have devoted to reading heavier novels and books.
Let's Be Friends:
So for that reason, at least for the time being, I’ve decided to have “lighter” reader picks, for SassyClassy Bookclub.
This month I decided to start the year off with another graphic novel.
As I’ve written about in my previous post, every once in a while I like to take a break from “heavy” adult reading and indulge with something a bit more lighthearted.
As a kid and even into my teen years, I always enjoyed reading a comic book from time to time and so naturally I enjoy a quick graphic novel read.
This month I took it back a bit and decided to read an “old” read with a “new” twist.
With the rise of classic comics and characters being developed into teen shows like Sabrina, Riverdale, and Katy Keene, I decided to read a light-hearted novel revolving around old classic comic turned tv characters Betty & Veronica.
As a kid, I used to read their classic comic books in one sitting, month after month. It wasn’t until recently when they decided to take the vintage Archie comics and their characters and revamp them into a new amazing franchise that now includes a tv show & graphic novels.
Being an old fan, I decided to give their graphic novels a try and settled on Betty & Veronica: Senior Year by Jamie Lee Rotante (Author) & Sandra Lanz (Illustrator).
This easy read takes the reader along as the two besties navigate their final year of high school. Along the way they will be forced to face the many challenges of being a senior in high school including — applying for college, figuring out what they want to do for the rest of their lives and how they will keep their friendship alive while trying to navigate teen angst.
Overall I really enjoyed this graphic novel. While the story itself wasn’t the greatest, the illustrations were GORGEOUS. The novel is divided into five parts, and take us through all four semesters.
If you are a graphic novel fan, fan of B & V comics, or Riverdale, I’d definitely recommend giving this novel a read.
Final Review: 5/5
