Review: Something New
I’m a huge fan of Lucy Knisley‘s graphic memoirs so was excited when her latest endeavor, Something New: Tales of a Makeshift Bride was released and I grabbed it to read the weekend our nephew got married. It was a great decision because I was completely charmed by this book!
When Knisley’s boyfriend proposed and she started planning her wedding she was taken aback by the wedding industry. Since she’s artistic and she and her husband-to-be aren’t fancy people, she decided to forgo many of the expectations and do much of the wedding planning and preparation herself resulting in a delightful, personal wedding.
In Something New, Knisley not only shares her experiences with wedding planning, she also gives ideas on ways to personalize a wedding and save money at the same time. She also fills readers in on her back story and the story of her relationship with John.
Knisley really knows how to get to the meat of the story and give readers the details that are important. Her outstanding illustrations are fun to study and bring the story to life. I found Something New to be a quick and satisfying read and I do recommend it.
