Paper Girls, Vol. 1 (Paper Girls #1) Reviews
Heh, I thought this novel was awesome! I felt like I fell down the rabbit hole on this one 😄
It doesn't have a lot of great reviews but it was good enough for me. I loved all of the old school stuff, the graphics, Halloween night, crazy time travelers<--- or were they? Who knows at this point!
Look forward to reading more.
To be continued....

I am always trying to read graphic novels because that is what my students "read" and by read I mean they love looking at the pictures. (I teach high school students with intellectual disabilities).
This book was interesting enough and I chose it for the A Book for All Seasons goodreads' book club. I hope to read the whole series and see what happen to the girls. I would have rated this book higher but there were times in the graphic novel that I felt it jumped around too much and I co ...more
Update, 6/19/18: Once again, and maybe for the last time, re-reading for my YA GN and Comics class with a focus on kick-ass girls. In this case, 4 of them, 12 years old, who are delivering papers in the Cleveland suburb of Stony Stream on All Saints Day (the day after Halloween) when revelers in costumes can still be seen roaming the streets. . .. among aliens in costumes. And pterodactyls. And monsters. And time travel so you can meet your future self. Too crazy, some Goodreads reviewers said, ...more
This was pretty weird, so naturally I loved it.
The art and color palette were super appealing, and I'm left feeling slightly confused which I'm actually OK with in this situation. I want more.
Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a copy for review.
My favorite series by Vaughan so far is the Marvel Runaways (see Runaways, Vol. 1: Pride and Joy for a good start) series. I like Saga a lot, but it has been uneven for me. I DNF'd Y: The Last Man, Vol. 1: Unmanned series around volume 3.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this. I found it mainly meh. It has potential with the aliens and time travel. I like the 80s vibe. I don't know. Just didn't connect with it. None of the characters stood out to me. Probably won't continue.
I picked this up in a whim at the library today. I have seen a lot of friends of mine on Instagram reading it so I thought I’d give it a shot.
SO MUCH FUN!!
My only complaint is that the story is a little bit rushed, I’d like some time to let each girl get their own character development backstory or something just so it’s easier to distinguish between a few of the minor character girls. I love the story though! And set in the late 80s and the tough girl and the pop culture references, I was in gr ...more
"Why is God letting this happen to me?"
I loved Paper Girls. Not as fantastic as Saga, way more intruiging than Ex Machina, this graphic novel is a stunning work of art.
I can't really believe that our paper girls are 12 years old (they look at least 14, possibly 16), but apart from that I enjoyed the story. Can't wait to see more.

Heh. I'm a full-on idiot.
I (because reading the blurb is for losers!) thought that the title was some kind of catchy metaphorical shit. Like, they were girls whose young emotions were as thin as paper. Or instead of paper dolls they were paper girls. You know, something along those lines.
For some reason, it never occurred to me that this was about a bunch of girls with a paper route. Probably because that one chick on the cover has a cigg dangling from her lips, making me think they were a tad ...more
