Review: Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life by Ulli Lust

My first review on WordPress! This is one of the few graphic novels I have read and I absolutely loved it. I was introduced to this book at the Los Angeles Times Book Awards when Ulli Lust was awarded best graphic novel for this masterpiece and I bought it at one of the most amazing bookstores I have had the pleasure of exploring.  This is the graphic novel equivalent of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants except it didn’t the unrealistic expectations of foreign romance, but just better in every aspect. This book was hilarious without being pretentious, lively with punk spirit, and also quite moving. It explored prejudice against women, rape, drug addiction, perceptions of consent, and gender roles.  Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life was raw, authentic, and utterly unique. I highly recommend it. 

5/5 stars. Definitely.

Hello, (inserts witty literary reference)

Hi, internet. This wordpress will be about books, mostly. Maybe, just maybe the occasional fandom/other interests post. But probably not. I’ll probably collaborate with my totes bestie, who also recently made a book blog as well. Hopefully, there will be more to come soon.

Feel free to ask questions and check out my goodreads as well, which I am quite active on: https://www.goodreads.com/thenerdypuffer
