    I loved this novel when I first read it years ago, and have been yelling about it ever since. I couldn?t believe my good fortune when I saw a graphic novel adaptation on NetGalley! I did get a little nervous, because adaptations of beloved things can be tricky if they don?t life up...

    This is the story of a lesbian, Puerto Rican girl from the Brox, who wants to follow her mentor who happens to be a granola hippie feminist white woman who has white privilege coming out of her ears, and doesn't always realize it. It is an interesting mix of a fish out of water...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley actual rating: 3.5 I haven't read the prose version of this story [I am way more likely to read contemporary YA as a graphic novel than a prose book] so I'm not sure how good of an adaption it is but I thought it was ov...

    I loved this. I?m a big graphic novel/comic book fan but I?m bad at keeping up with the interesting ones coming up so I?m really enjoying seeing all the queer storylines that are becoming available. Juliet Takes A Breath is adapted from the novel by Gabby Rivera - a work I unfort...

    ?Reading will make you brilliant but writing will make you infinite.? Juliet Takes a Breath is a graphic novel adaptation of the novel with the same title and unpacks so many different themes, from white feminism and intersectionality to finding your place in queer...

    *reminds self that 3.5 stars is still a good rating and I shouldn't feel bad* I wanted to adore this as much as most of my friends adore this and/or the original full novel version of the story, but I really thought it was just alright. While I adored the conversation on queern...

    Juliet Takes a Breath is an important and loving story about racism, queerness and coming-of-age, but unfortunately for me this graphic novel adaption fell short. Content warnings include: sexual harassment, racism, homophobia, break-up, non-explicit sex on-page, equation of sex...

    3.5 stars I think I tripped myself up with this one because I hyped it massively to myself and I seriously wish I?d read the book (which I own) before the graphic novel. What I found with Juliet Takes A Breath was a character I could adore but a story short on depth because?grap...

    I completely forgot I was reading this but thanks to the laid-back style of the book, it was easy to jump back into the story. It was a very entertaining and educational read but once again it went over the top to prove a point and get the message across. EVERYONE around the MC is gay,...

    Thank you to NetGalley and BOOM! Studios for providing a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Juliet comes out to her family in a big way. You know, when your main character is sitting at the dinner table and blurts, ?I?m gay!? That night, she leaves th...

    I'll just start by saying, I'm by no means the target audience for this book. In fact, I'm probably the opposite, given I'm a cis white male. I just liked the cover art and decided to check it out. Juliet is a teenage, Puerto Rican, newly out lesbian from the Bro...

    This is brightly colored, lively adaptation of the novel of the same name (which I read and loved over the summer). I love Juliet's character design and the warm and energy of the color palette. I miss the pieces of her internal narration which had to be cut, and by necessity this...

    During our first writer's club meeting this year, one of the new members recommended "Juliet Takes a Breath" to us, and I was super stoked to read it. To my surprise, I saw that it was also coming out as a graphic novel adaptation, and scooped it up (also forwarded the g...

    I read the original book almost 3 years ago and recall it having an impact on me. Although no specifics come to mind, I felt like it had unsettled me. Juliet Milagros Palante is 19 and is heading to Portland, Oregon, to do an internship with a well known feminist author, Harlowe Brisba...

    I got a free eARC of this grafic novel from Netgalley. I?m a little sad. Because I really, really liked this book and was so excited that it was going to be adapted into a Grafic novel. But somehow it didn?t work for me. The art style is super pretty and I also liked the co...

    First things first: I have not read the novel this book is based on, so I can't say anything about how well it is adapted. I sometimes get the feeling with books that involve a severely underrepresented group (in this case gay women of colour), that the fact of this representat...

    After recently picking up Juliet Takes a Breath in novel form recently, I was so excited to hear that a graphic novel version was being released, so of course I jumped at the chance of reading an arc. First and foremost, the art style is absolutely beautiful. The warm colour palette...

    3.5 stars Okay, so here's the thing: Juliet Takes a Breath made me feel both extremely uncomfortable, and very empowered. The first half of this book felt like a mixture of old-school and new, slightly elitist feminism. Talks about how womanhood is loving my pussy, folds wi...

    A story about learning, acceptance, self-discovery, and self-love. I really enjoyed following Juliet's story as she develops as a person of her own. She's a lesbian who knows nothing about being a queer and being a feminist and we follow her as she learns and grows and I ...
