Of the three reviews I've posted today, Lumberjanes is the only one I actually finished today. The other two I finished yesterday, but didn't have time to post. Today, though, is a lazy, rainy Saturday here in Portland, so I've got time to catch up (in addition to watching Big Bang Theory because Anthony and I just realized there are actually two seasons out on DVD we haven't seen - score!). Lumberjanes is a graphic novel I'd heard good things about, so decided to give it a go. As I mentioned when I read Saga, I'm not a big graphic novel reader. But, Saga went well, so why not try another?
Lumberjanes is the story of 5 girls who are at Lumberjane camp (Friendship to the Max!) for the summer. They have adventures in friendship and of a supernatural sort. That pretty much sums it up.
I had a little bit of a hard time getting into Lumberjanes. It was a mix of it being a graphic novel, which is a bit of a challenging form for me, and the seemingly out of the blue nature of the supernatural stuff. In spite of that, I figured I'd keep reading, as it's pretty short. I was rewarded for that by getting to know these characters a little and seeing their relationships develop. I came to like these girls and was glad I'd stuck with it. I'm think I may even move on with the series. However, I have to be honest and say that's partially because they're such quick reads, so I can follow the characters without too much time investment. Plus, I feel like it's good for me to expand my horizons.
