    This is a love letter to Black girls and Black hair and I can’t stress enough how much I enjoyed it. Told in small stories that feature each of the squad, we get a little glimpse into the lives of four best friends as they navigate the world around them. Each story connects to the other, gives a moment to show the way they care for their hair, and also shows how caring for our hair is a genuine part of our lives.

I screamed when Davene pulled that Jamaican flag out of her bra! I received an arc from Chronicle Books in exchange for an honest review.

The treatment of that character in general felt clunky to me, but I enjoyed the rest of the book overall. The art was cute and I enjoyed it for the chill, slice-of-life read that it was. ✨ Representation: all four characters are Black, with one of them being Afro-Latinx; one character is bi/pan; brief depiction of an f/f relationship ✨ Content warnings for: (view spoiler)[depression, ableism, dementia, queerphobia, a stalking/abusive ex, alcohol and marijuana usage (hide spoiler)] Thank you to the publisher for the review copy! All thoughts are honest and my own. ——— twitter | booktok | bookstagram | blog

    A real celebration of friendship, using all forms of haircare as connecting tissue between the different stories, connecting the characters even when not around eachother. One character suffering from depression was depicted especially well, including the friend who tries to "solve" her depression, which although it is well meant, is not a helpful response. It's also refreshing to see a group of female friends that don't fall out with eachother, or there's some other interpersonal drama, as tends A real celebration of friendship, using all forms of haircare as connecting tissue between the different stories, connecting the characters even when not around eachother.

It's also refreshing to see a group of female friends that don't fall out with eachother, or there's some other interpersonal drama, as tends to be the leading form in these kind of stories. These are just great friends who love and support eachother. The art is fun and vibrant, although maybe not as strong everywhere. The depictions of haircare do stand out, particularly excellent as they are. (Picked up an ARC through Edelweiss)

    ➵ four best friends. four hair wash days. four short stories in as they go about with their life in bronx. with an overall theme of how powerful female friendships are, this graphic novel is a delight and wonderfully dedicates a monochromatic colour palette to each character. through an aesthetic art style and detailed illustrations showing the kinks and curls, it easily triumphs. thank you chronicle books for an early copy.

    4/5 stars, an important and cute little graphic novel Thank you to Chronicle Books for the arc through netgalley in exchange for an honest review! I didn't really know what to expect going into this graphic novel, as I haven't read that many in recent years but I was pleasantly surprised.

While some trigger warnings were not depicted in depth, they were very real depictions of 4/5 stars, an important and cute little graphic novel Thank you to Chronicle Books for the arc through netgalley in exchange for an honest review! I didn't really know what to expect going into this graphic novel, as I haven't read that many in recent years but I was pleasantly surprised. This is an important story, following four African-American best friends in the Bronx, and what their lives consist of. While some trigger warnings were not depicted in depth, they were very real depictions of what women, especially women of color, go through everyday. The cat-calling, untreated depression, and stalking were all prominent in their own little chapters and something that should be recognized for many people of color, especially women, around the world. While I cannot relate to the main theme of this story, Wash Days, I think it was soooo important as I didn't know a lot about this beforehand. Wash days refer to days taken by African-American women to fully wash, condition, and nourish their hair as well as dry it. Seeing how each of the main characters experienced this day was really interesting as well. I didn't know a lot about this before, as I think it is something hardly talked about in media that should be. I really enjoyed learning about this part of culture and seeing all the different ways this day can be experienced. All four main characters were also such a joy to read, there were some moments that came up between characters that created tension, but they always figured it out as real friends do. Each of their individual lives were interesting, and seeing them all blend together was fun. My favorite character was probably Cookie, as she was super outgoing and optimistic, while being a very supportive best friend to everyone as well. Their tight-knit friendship was something that I think should be represented more in books as well.

    I absolutely ADORED this graphic novel! It perfectly embodies the life and experience of a young black woman with natural hair. Many Black women understand the lengths we go to for healthy and beautiful hair (which we ALL have) and I loved the different textures and hairstyles that were showcased for each character. From cute coils to sleek wigs, I really felt like every version of myself was represented here. Not only that, but each character has a life of their own that is quickly depicted.

From the difficulties of dating, having to navigate being hit on and then insulted when we don't return the interest, to healing family wounds and dealing with depression, each character just felt so real and so easily relatable. I want MORE graphic novels like this. Simple in delivery but impactful all the same, Wash Day Diaries was fun and sweet and the friendship among these 4 women just really is the icing on the cake. My ONLY disappointment is that I wish it were longer and that we had the chance to see more of their life. But maybe just maybe, the author will consider making this a comic book series. I would be happy with that!

    One of those reads which adds more headache to your already chaotic life. It's realistic I'm saying. The cover is extra cheerful in comparison to the contents. I appreciate the representation and the characters who are mature enough. However, the presentation and the character interaction could have been much more interesting.

It’s messy, time consuming, but oh so worth it at the end. I like how the illustrator was able to show the frustration and joy of the day.

    Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to give my honest review. This is my first graphic novel and I loved it it showed that friends can be there for each other through whatever comes along. This graphic novel deals with depression, stalking, struggles with natural hair in a workplace and a love triangle. But it also shows the many ways that African Americans deal with wash day and hairstyles. Can’t wait for this to come out because I need a physical copy.

    *Received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, Chronicle Books. All thoughts are my own.* Wash Day Diaries is an interconnected short story series of four friends--Kim, Tanisha, Davene and Cookie--as they go about their lives in the Bronx. Each story uses the character's relationship with hair and the care that it represents to give an intimate peek into their lives. But it's also an overall story about the power and beauty of female friendships that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. What *Received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, Chronicle Books.

Each story uses the character's relationship with hair and the care that it represents to give an intimate peek into their lives. But it's also an overall story about the power and beauty of female friendships that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. What I loved about the stories in this collection was the depth of emotions each story captured in a short amount of time. One of the things that wowed me about this graphic novel was how it used silence so beautifully, which is a testament to Jamila Rowser and Robyn Smith's collaboration. There were several pages where Rowser let her characters just be in the moment and soak up themselves--no thought bubbles or narrative asides to disrupt the page--but they got to just be present in a way you don't see in graphic novels very often. And this also let Smith's art shine and take center stage. This graphic novel also has one of my favorite visualizations of group texts. The way the art interacted with the text exchanges welcomed you into the friend group and felt like you were a part of the conversation. The art in general was stunning and the monochromatic color palette for each character gave such effortless vibes for each individual. As a reviewer, I can't personally speak to the representation of the Black experience since it isn't my own, but I want to call out how much love and care Rowser and Smith put into these characters because it emanates from the page so clearly. Both in the sense that it's clear these creators love these characters and what they represent, but also that the characters clearly love and respect one another. And wow is that a powerful thing to read about! I don't think there are enough examples of loving female friendships in media, and this is my new favorite example of what good looks like. Try this if you... -love tv shows like Girlfriends, The Bold Type or Insecure -miss the feels of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants -live for a beautiful, femme aesthetic Content Warnings [All Minor] -Stalker ex -Depression/anxiety -loved one with dementia/alzheimer's

Every Black woman has their own wash day/hair routines no matter how they chose to wear their hair and the importance of this self-care routine in their lives, whether it is maintained by themselves and/or others in the lives/community. The five short chapters , each focusing on a different character deftly gives each character their own point of view without losing the sight of the novel’s central theme. The trust, respect, and genuine caring for each other comes through their actions is done with dignity. I so enjoyed how the subtle strength of the language which was spun into beautiful images. This tribute to Black women is magnetic and good-hearted. I definitely am looking forward to future work by Jamila Rowser and Robyn Smith. #WashDayDiaries

    This was so amazing. Like truly the most comforting graphic novel I’ve ever read. As a black girl, it’s so rare to see these every day experiences depicted in this way, and it made me feel so warm inside. The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and the stories inside were so… real. I love the way Wash Day Diaries covers the ups and downs of romantic and familial relationships, mental health, and ties it up in a beautiful bow that highlights the true friendship of these four black women.

    Wash Day Diaries is an ode to Black Girl Magic and Black Girl Hair. Hair is such an important piece of Black identity, no matter the style. Natural, permed, wig, braids, low fade, big afro. No matter what it is, our hair (or lack their of) tells our story. Each of the stories in this graphic novel focuses in on this Black friend group and hair plays a role in some way.

    Each chapter is a story about a different Black woman getting her hair done and features a brief look into her life. I love female friendships and this book really delivered just that.

    It was interesting to read this. I never realized how much work black hair was! Make me feel bad for complaining about mine. I liked getting a look inside the characters' lives. I'd like another book on these characters as I felt there wasn't enough about some of them. It was interesting to read this. I never realized how much work black hair was!
