Soppy is a love story told through graphic novel form. The main characters are the author Rice herself and her boyfriend. I’ve never felt so much emotion from a graphic novel. It perfectly depicts a happy couple in their relationship through very simplistic yet beautiful artwork. The color scheme consists of red, black and white. In my mind, red is the color of love and it fits so well with the story.
She shows that love is not always grand gestures but can be found in the simple day to day things that we do. I found they’re relationship very similar to mine and my boyfriends so I literally found myself smiling from ear to ear while reading this.
I really hope Rice will continue making graphic novels because after this I am already considering myself a big fan of her work.
Thank you to Netgalley for providing us an arc of this novel.
A 5/5 star from me.
Philippa Rice does a wonderful job at portraying what it is to be in true relationship. She brings her characters to life as they do everyday things together.
(Is that not the cutest thing ever?)
This book made me smile from ear to ear. I found myself nodding and laughing at the silly things that I do too in my relationship. Soppy is a feel-good book. The scenarios are outstanding and the illustrations portray them in an adorable way. It would be hard not to fall in love with these cute little comics.
If you’re looking for a little happiness in your love life – read Soppy.If you’re having a bad day – read Soppy.Soppy will have you smiling and wanting to go give your lover a big hug. I guarantee that it will brighten your day and make you appreciate the moments you share with your significant other. Sometimes you just need a happy story to relate to. No drama, no tears. Soppy left me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. All I wanted to do was cuddle up on the couch with my boyfriend and watch some good old Netflix (which we do every single night, but I am starting to appreciate more hehe).
