In the past, it used to flood my feed but thinking about it; I did not see one in a very long time. So, I was a bit surprised, seeing this book, since I did not hear any news about it being published. And you can bet that I almost knocked over my laptop trying to open it fast enough. Overall I was very pleasantly surprised! Since these comics stopped showing on my facebook, I can say that I knew only three before reading this. And trust me, it made it just so much better! What I love about these is that they are super relatable; it just seems like my life, it gives me the illusion of normalcy. What can I say, my limbs are currently cold, and I'm hungry — the story of my life. At least I'm not the only one suffering the same fate. This was a wonderful surprise and with a puppy as a bonus! What's not to like? Plus, I also like the cover, it's in such a stark contrast with the first book. Pretty, pretty.

    I never get tired of Catana's comics, and this collection was just as adorable as I expected it to be. My spouse and I always love these because we feel like they're so very us. Honestly, nobody nails "relatable" humor quite as well as Catana does when it comes to cute, casual couple stuff!(^ literally me) If it tells you anything about how much I loved this, despite being the sort of person who almost never pre-orders finished copies of comic collections, I ran off to pre-order this the moment I never get tired of Catana's comics, and this collection was just as adorable as I expected it to be.

I absolutely recommend picking it up, especially if you're in a long-term relationship and can relate to the cute, goofy things comfortable couples do with each other.Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This graphic novel is so cute! It's a collection of short comics all about Catana, the artist, and her boyfriend John. You can clearly see how much they love each other and the comics are lovely. This book is going to be published at the beginning of February and I honestly think it would make the perfect Valentine's Day's present for your significant other.

So when I got this ARC on Netgalley I was incredibly pumped and I knew exactly how I wanted to read it. Reading this book was a little different than I have ever done with any other book, I snuggled up on the couch with our kittens (though they did not stay very long, they had kitten things to do apparently), and my spouse. We looked through this together and it was a super sweet fun time!The comics are super cute and lovey as always and were done in the usual Catana Comics style. There were a lot of comics in this particular book that we found funny or my spouse or I would point to and say yupp, or yeah you do that too. If you have not checked out a Catana Comic yet you can definitely do that online on their Facebook or other social media outlets but also you should check out their books! I am definitely going to be purchasing this second book to just have around to share again with my spouse at some point in the future. On Goodreads, I am rating this five stars.

    Catana never disappoints with her adorable, cute, heart warming comics. Her and John are literally #couplegoals and I don't know what else I can say!Everything that's drawn in these comics is something everyone goes through in their life. It's not anything extremely unique or anything like that. But I guess that's what also makes it so special?

    Another great book in this series. I follow the author on Instagram so I had already seen a couple of the pages presented in this book but not all (did I miss them, not remember them or re they «exclusive»). Anyway that was lot of fun to read, i just see myself and y wife, and us as a couple, so much in those two characters!! Funny, cute and a good dose of feel good time/read!

    No rating for this one.No matter what I do, I cannot open this book in any eReader I have at my disposal. Tried multiple times but ended up in frustration which is such a shame as I was looking forward to reading this. I sometimes have this problem, not all the time, mind you since I download and review many graphical books from NetGalley. This might be something for publishers to figure out.

    Snug is so stinking adorable! There were so many parts that reminded me of my relationship with my hubby now, as well as great reminders of how we were earlier in our relationship - which serves as great motivation to reclaim some of those old ways and habits. I love the simple art style and how very relatable each page is. I can't wait to add a hardcopy of the book when it comes out so that I can share it with my hubby. 4 out of 5 wine glasses.

Chetwynd manages to capture the little things that make a relationship worthwhile, the emotional comfort, the trust, and the little weird things one does. Some other things could also be true for non-romantic relationships, for example, I feel very much elevated by the faith my friends have in me when they cheer me up. So this was really cute. If you want something (heterosexually) wholesome, check it out.4,5 Stars because I missed the representation of the harder parts of keeping a relationship going, the fighting, the negative stuff, you know what I mean.

I found it heartwarming and sweet, as well as really funny. I admit it was cheesy, but I'd be lying if i said i wasn't smiling through the whole thing. This would be such a cute gift to get for the person you're dating, as it is super relatable. Thank you to Netgalley.com for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I had to keep calling my husband over to look at them. Catana nails the day to day life of being in a long term relationship with your best friend. Some people might find them corny, but I find them wholesome and relatable. <3 Perhaps my only complaint is that I wish it had been a smidgen longer, but that’s mainly me being greedy and being a Catana addict.This comes out early February and would make a fantastic gift for an SO, long time married couple, or newlyweds!Many thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for my review copy!

I tend to read and gravitate towards darker novels, so this was a sweet palate cleanser. Some of my favorite strips were the fortune cookie, the leftovers note, lost in conversation, I want pasta, when I’m cold, telling a story, and there were so many more I enjoyed, but I won’t bore you by listing them all. Go check the book out for yourself! I have also never related as much to a comic strip as I do with the “Why did I come in here?” strip. That was so relatable.

We see how she is stopping her boyfriend from shaving as she loves his beard, stares and giggles when he undresses (which I recognise as something I do as well, and yes I also say more, or well I say it in Dutch, close enough), we see how she moves around in the bed while he just stays on the same spot, I had a big laugh at her clinging to him when he has to leave the bed (my hubby has to get my limbs off him at times as well), just like her sometimes you just need to hug your loved ones to feel better, and there is tons and tons more and I was just smiling with each of them. I just love seeing this couple together. See them interact, hug, and love each other. The hearts are just floating out of the comic.And oh, so that is why when you pass through doors/doorways you lose what you wanted to do, it just gets stuck and bumps against the wall above the door!I have to say that I am still a bit doubtful about the big eyes, but I do love the art in the general. It is quite a fun and cute style.All in all, another fun and relatable and sweet and perfect for the end of the day when you need some extra love book and I would recommend it.Review first posted at https://twirlingbookprincess.com/

These sweet comics have been in my life and bringing me immense joy since I first saw them around two years ago, or so. And they are not only adorable, but so relatable. Sometimes I feel almost attacked with how much my fiance and I relate them to our own relationship. Socially awkward? Wants all of the pizza? Nothing but cuddles and no pants? Attacks their partner with all of the kisses and weird reactions? I feel you, girl. Especially during the year and a half that my fiance and I were long distance - we sent these back and forth to each other daily, and they always made us feel closer together, and definitely helped us get through that time. So I knew going in that I was going to love this. This is a very quick read, as each comic is only a few panels on a page, so I just read through them all in about 25 minutes. I would highly, highly recommend this to absolutely anyone. It is funny, and sickly sweet, and I guarantee that every single person will find at least one (likely way more) that will make them smile!

This makes the comics not only relevant in romantic relationships, but also for friendships and family.Her way of drawing is simple, but it speaks volumes. Although the comics are black and white, I always feel like they are drawn in color. This gives the reader the opportunity to have a personal interpretation of the drawing. However, she does add some color details. Such as red for a heart. Text is not always necessary to express emotions. The artist absolutely proves that with this comic. The comic shows a lot of positive and cute sides of a relationship, but also the daily irritations are discussed. In the future, however, I would like to see some comics that also reveal the negative aspects of a relationship. Not every relationship is pink and moonlight.
