Happily Ever After & Everything In Between
From the bestselling author of Quiet Girl in a Noisy World and Book Love comes a funny and adorable collection of comics about married life, specifically an introvert married to an extrovert! Debbie Tung’s tender, funny, and utterly relatable comics are the perfect gift for anyone in a relationship. The comics in Happily Ever After & Everything In Between may be inspired by Debbie Tung’s marriage to her extrovert husband, but any couple can relate to increasingly relaxed anniversaries, slowly seeing more of each other’s weird sides, or the punishment for taking care of your sick loved one (catching whatever they had). Happily Ever After humorously captures what everyday love looks like—both the sweet moments and the mundane—making it a fitting gift for weddings, anniversaries, and Valentine’s Day.

    ***Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.So, I read a book The Book Love by Debbie Tung some time last year, and when I saw that she has another one, I just went for it. However, I have to say that I do not follow this author anywhere, so, the whole content in this book was new to me. And while I found the Book Love rather relatable and sometimes it was just funny because I was very guilty of all things the author showed in her book.

And while I found the Book Love rather relatable and sometimes it was just funny because I was very guilty of all things the author showed in her book. However, in this one, I was missing it. It was the daily life of a young couple. I did only very few funny moments; I could probably count those on the fingers of one hand. This is just very much the case of me reading this book just because of the author. It was cute in an okay way, meaning I did not love it, nor did I hate it. Just very average.

The publish date is June 02, 2020.I literally just finished this book and am so pleasantly surprised! I usually enjoy graphic novels/ cartoons but in this case I was able to relate to almost every single page in this hilarious amalgamation. It completely exceeded my expectations going in! “Happily Ever After & Everything In Between” isn’t one flowy, long story, but a collection of short discussions, activities, disagreements, and everyday situations that occur in relationships. I am not married, but have been with my significant other for 5 years and I found myself nodding in agreement or laughing out loud the entire time. SO much of what author, Debbie Tung, writes about is “us”, as I’m sure a good amount of readers will see themselves in it as well. This graphic novel discusses everything from grocery shopping together and forgetting the one item that you went there to get ; binge-watching shows on the couch so frequently, that when they’re over you don’t know what to do with yourselves— to having a refrigerator full of groceries and instead ordering take-out , and waking up to a significant other that is anything but a morning person! These incidents come with spending —what feels like— a lifetime together. Being a couple is not all peachy, you will find quirks that you didn’t even know existed until HIM or HER. Has your significant other ever fallen asleep, snoring ridiculously loud while you’re trying to watch TV, or have you ever been in bed and the other person stole all of the covers or flicked the light on because they can’t sleep? How about arguing over the thermostat temperature? If so, you will love reading this! 5 incredible stars. I will pick up EVERYTHING that this author has written and will write in the future.

I am so happy I have access to this collection as I had no idea that this one is coming out in July this year! Thank you #NetGalley so much for the copy of #HappilyEverAfterandEverythingInBetween As for the artstyle, it's the basic usual Debbie Tung artstyle which I am so used to by now and actually see it as something important in my life by now. I follow her at Instagram and Pinterest for updates. I will always follow her and support her work because I can relate with everything she says or draws. Yes, one rare artist I can relate 100 percent with. And that's why I believe I won't be fine with anyone other than someone similar in the book to be with in real. Because that's the perfect guy. If my partner feels like it's the husband's thing to buy books for his wife like it's one of the most important things in our married life... Wait. Does such a husband exist? It must. Because this book says so. And yes, everything, I say, everything in this book is everything I ever wanted. This couple is perfect. *I don't want to say much but her husband understands her as much as others want to judge her for being herself. *People will say they are weird together but I say they are perfect for each other.*Please don't misunderstand that we all will relate to her comics and thoughts. To some it may seem like they cannot relate at all and it's all made up. The author is not trying to show that being an introvert and just being herself is not asking you to be like her or anything. Her previous collections has all her thoughts on such issues cleared up. I would highly recommend those too. *No matter what all that matters in the end is having someone you know who is going to be with you no matter what happens.

    First of all, let me say that Happily Ever After is VERY cute. If you're in a long-term relationship, I'm certain there will be at least a few comics in this collection that will make you smile, maybe even go "awwww!" That said, having read two other of Debbie Tung's books, I was really disappointed overall in this book. The other two were so humorous and cute and fun, that I was surprised by how much of this was just sort of "slice of life"-feeling with a little sweetness no real humor or fun First of all, let me say that Happily Ever After is VERY cute.

That said, having read two other of Debbie Tung's books, I was really disappointed overall in this book. The other two were so humorous and cute and fun, that I was surprised by how much of this was just sort of "slice of life"-feeling with a little sweetness — no real humor or fun shining through like I expected to find. If this was your first introduction to Tung's work, I totally recommend checking out one of her earlier books, as I think they were much more lovable! I'll definitely pick up her next release and I don't regret reading this one, it just wasn't what I hoped it would be.Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!

    Such a cute comic. Really made me reminisce about the early years in my own marriage -- how my heart fluttered; how we were goo-goo eyed at each other; and how we held hands all the time. Reading Happily Ever After & Everything in Between makes me want to recapture those early years and play them again, and again.A wonderful comic about love, marriage, and friendships. Four stars -- I really liked it.

    This is so cute and wholesome. I've read "Book Love" by this artist before, and related to it a lot as an introvert book lover, and once again I relate to her comics about being in a loving relationship and enjoying the simple things in being of each other's company. a lot of the comics reminded me of my husband and our daily lives, and it made smile a lot.I would recommend for a quick dose of fluffiness. I thank netgalley for the digital copy.

    I had such high hopes for this cartoon book. I expected it to be funny, witty and original and to include everyday challenges of married life. But it was mostly filled with cliches and could not deliver anything out of the ordinary. Do not get me wrong, it was an easy and fun read but I felt like there should have been more. It is relatable if youre one of the lucky ones; a few ha!s and sighs are guaranteed but thats all there is to it, nothing extraordinary.

The drawings matched the content and easy on the eyes but feel a little plain after 50 pages or so. Overall a good book with a moderate sense of humor on marriage life to be read in one sitting and it can make a good coffee table book.

    Last year I read Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert's Story and liked it. I certainly felt conflicted and that feeling is lingering with this one as well.While it pictures awkward and over-easy amazing relationship but that's what it is, it is far too perfect and no relationship is perfect. But it's still good, a lukewarm book so I am glad I got a copy from netgalley for a review.

    4.5I totally checked this one out only because of the author, since I really enjoyed Debbie's previous comics. In the similar manner to Quiet Girl in a Noisy World: An Introvert's Story, this one offers insight into Debbie's personal life, while at the same time being cute, funny, and probably relatable to anyone married or in a long term relationship. I enjoyed this comic a lot. It's drawn in a signature Debbie's artwork, simplistic, but effective.

It also reminds you to take a moment to appreciate everything you have in these challenging times. The perfect read if you need that quick pick me up!Our story follows two characters who are newly weds. This book shows their every day life and their interactions with one another. They share funny moments, the chaoticness that can come with being married, and even moments of awe. We even have moments where they spend time with their friends and it shows how things can change once you get married. The moving scenes are absolute hilarious perfection!I really loved this book and I loved all the moments the couple shared. I think many newly weds and even married couples will be able to relate to this graphic novel very easily. The characters are easy to see oneself in and even if you’re not married, I think someone could related to the things happening in this graphic novel. The ending is probably the sweetest part though! It ends on such a feel good note and I would be lying if I didn’t say I ‘awe’d’ a few times before finally turning the page.Overall, I think it’s easy to tell that I enjoyed this graphic novel and found that it brought a lot of sappy feelings into my heart. I think now is the perfect time to pick up all those feel good books and this is one you don’t want to miss out on. It’s super endearing, really precious, and just the book many readers need in their life right now!

She continues to impress me with the adorable nature of both her art and her storytelling.
