    Rory and Angela are bffs forever; or are they? High school buds, college roommates, but graduation happens, boys happen, internships and travel, and throw in the mix an irritating(ly right) mother and supportive father, talking familiars (owls, and so on),mdragons. So it's post-co...

    A couple of college-age friends are trying to figure things out. Rory is the type to get enthusiastic about stuff but not see it through. Angie is a bit of a doormat, but is resentful of the people who treat her like a doormat. They both resent their parents asking questions, but they ...

    My feelings about this may be deeper than the shallow characters in this book. Best part: watching the "Labyrinth" scene or when the characters pity shopped at the mall (the mall scene took up 2 pages). If the best parts for me were watching one of my favorite movies through ...

    This was a cute story, set in a parallel universe where witches are part of the population and everyone celebrates Saturnalia instead of Christmas, but the movies and other pop culture is the same. It is a little confusing, but you get used to it. There is air travel by plane or by fly...

    I loved the art and world building but I honestly wasn't that into the plot or characters. I don't think they were bad, just not my thing. I loved the art and world building but I honestly wasn't that into the plot or characters. I don't think they were bad, just not my t...

    I tore through this painfully relatable, beautifully empathetic look at friendships, relationships, and finding your footing post-college. The fantasy setting lends a fun and imaginative atmosphere and frankly fantasy monsters are the most accurate way to depict the horrors of grad sch...

    Post-college life for two best friends struggling to find their next steps. An Embarrassment of Witches is a graphic novel that needed to focus: magic/fantasy or coming-of-age. Instead, it attempted a blend of the two storylines and failed. The plot became so muddled and full of angs...

    Another cozy fantasy offering that's satisfactory: cute, colorful, and forgettable. An Embarrassment of Witches takes place in our modern world - except everyone's a magic user! It's less exciting or complex than you might think. For the most part, the main characters do...

    This one took me by surprise. I checked it out on a whim from Hoopla because the cover looked cool. The art is fun and the colors are lovely. Lots of bright but plain backgrounds with spots of detailed pattern. Sometimes everyone but the main characters are in a purple shadow but somet...

    I think this comic was funny, entertaining and unique. But I also think it was childish, unpredictable, confusing and inappropriate. The comic was about two witches who were best friends for years, in fact they even live with each other. However Angela and Rory, have no boundaries...

    This was a fun, quirky little graphic novel about "adulting." Some young women, lifelong friends, each encounter the hardships of adjusting to adult life, and they each respond in their unique ways. There's some drama, some crying, some laughing, and lots of fun imagery ...

    This is a terrific graphic novel about two witches, best friends dealing with guys, parents, school, growing up and navigating that weird space where you're close to being an adult but not there yet. Angela's been the steady one and she's getting tired of covering for Ro...

    An Embarrassment of Witches was an utter delight. I was laughing by page 2 and absolutely could not get enough of the puns, droll humor, and sarcasm in this book. The setting was insanely cool with lots of little creative ways to add magic into everyday life. (Don't get me started...

    The moment a character broke into 'A Whole New World' whilst flying on a magic carpet, I knew I was not going to regret reading this. I'm very happy to report I was right in that assumption. Having picked this up on a whim, I had no idea what I was getting but I loved...

    This book does an amazing job of summing up the existential anxiety of post college life for millennials in America. It uses fantasy tropes to build a world where everything is new and magical and... doesn't quite make sense, but people still have to move forward as if it does. Th...
