    Thanks to NetGalley and Clarion Books for an egalley in exchange for an honest review. A beautifully illustrated graphic novel about discovering who you really are while also finding a little romance. I enjoyed the fantasy elements and the characters were as sweet as the baked goods in the bakery setting. Expected Publication Date 19/07/22 Goodreads reviews 27/03/22

    3.5 stars, rounded up This was such a sweet, cute little story (for the most part)! I really loved the witchy themes, especially Marigold's kitchen magic in her bakery. I wish that we'd gotten more focus on the various paranormal elements of the other characters, and less focus on Ray's job, because the parts about her job were honestly mostly a bit boring and felt like "too much" (not in the sense that it shouldn't have been included, but in the sense that there were too many separate threads w 3.5 stars, rounded up This was such a sweet, cute little story (for the most part)! I really loved the witchy themes, especially Marigold's kitchen magic in her bakery. I wish that we'd gotten more focus on the various paranormal elements of the other characters, and less focus on Ray's job, because the parts about her job were honestly mostly a bit boring and felt like "too much" (not in the sense that it shouldn't have been included, but in the sense that there were too many separate threads within the career subplot and most of them weren't wrapped up in the end). I loved the characters, and the development we got to see in several of them. Ray was a very lovable main character, though I thought some of her behavior was immature and maybe not addressed as thoroughly as I'd have liked for it to be. While Laurie's transgressions are pretty well handled, it felt like Ray's are swept under the rug, whether it's related to her emotional unavailability or her poor handling of situations at work. I hate to throw in another "I loved this, BUT —" point, but the romance: I thought it was absolutely adorable and I sensed so much chemistry between Ray and Laurie in the beginning, but this story suffered from the classic case of these characters getting into a relationship too early into the story, which led to a lot of their conversations being repetitive. The conflict between them was fine (and I say this as someone who usually hates the infamous Romance Break-up Act™️), but I was kind of disappointed in the ending! I get why so many YA/NA authors go this route with endings to their romance books, but I'm a hopeless romantic and these two had SO much potential and cared so much for one another that the ending felt unrealistic and forced. Overall, this graphic novel was mostly enjoyable, but I had a lot of caveats that pulled it down from the 5-star rating I originally had hoped to give it. Writing this out, I actually struggle with even giving it 4 stars, but the massive amount of love and joy it brought me in the first half makes it hard to go lower than that, too. Plus, the art is adorable. Thank you to the publisher for the review copy! All thoughts are honest and my own. ✨ Representation: Ray, Laurie, Marigold, and multiple other side characters are BIPOC and/or queer; two side characters use they/them pronouns ✨ Content warnings for: (view spoiler)[mentions of parental death/loss, acrophobia (hide spoiler)] ——— twitter | booktok | bookstagram | blog

    This was a cute YA graphic novel about a seer and a musician who fall in love while trying to figure out what their futures will look like. I really wanted to like this book more than I did but I found it overly long with not enough plot. The romance was cute but nothing spectacular. Not going to be one I recommend unfortunately. Much thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my advance review copy in exchange for an honest review.

    A gentle and bittersweet coming of age romance set in a vague world of magic users with casual LGBTQ+ representation. It's all about relationships and thinking about relationships and talking about relationships while dealing with some annoying job issues, like imposed temporary amnesia and long commutes. It meanders a bit too much and the baking isn't as central to the book as the title would have you believe, but its a comfortable ride.

On the fence with her career trajectory, Ray frequents her local bakery to see her crush, Laurie, and order tea and some tasty baked goods infused with romance. As a seer, nothing is a surprise, but it is for Ray when she finally speaks to her crush. Everything turns out to be a surprise as their romance blossoms, even as Ray’s abilities begin to expand to see the future. Unfortunately for them, the ups and downs are a surprise for both, especially as Laurie struggles with trying to make it as a musician. This book is absolutely wonderful. We follow Ray, who is a seer in a world full of magic. There’s a touch of magic everywhere down to each character’s phone. It made me wish I had a cool phone just like the characters! Speaking of the characters, I think there was only one character that I disliked, but I believe we were meant to dislike them. The rest are wonderful, and that includes the characters who had very small parts in the story. One of the things I liked about the book is that Ray and Laurie’s romance was still presented in a realistic way. Ray found a way for Laurie to gain some privacy from her abilities, which allowed us to see what Laurie’s friends and ex meant when talking about the downfalls of their personality. I did find that I didn’t like Laurie as much as I initially did once we got to know them because they seemed very superficial in their relationships, whether romantic or platonic. That said, I did like how Ray and Laurie overcame their hardships. The artwork is absolutely stunning. It’s so vibrant and really brings the characters and the world they live in to life. After reading this and being in awe at the beautiful artwork, I’m looking forward to seeing what Danie Stirling publishes in the future.

    This was a very cute graphic novel, a very slow-paced read. It made me feel nice and cozy. It was a nice and sweet read. The graphics were beautiful and so cute. I really enjoyed this read. I really like all the characters. I also wish there was more backstory on the magic they use. Hope this story keeps going on WEBTOON, I love that a lot of series on there are getting books. A big thank you to NetGalley and HCC for giving me the chance to read and review this adorable book.

It's her relationship with Laurie that makes her question what she wants to do with her life. Even with her gift to see the future, her future with Laurie is unclear. Will they make it as Ray's dreams start to change? Or is the magic the only thing keeping them together? Thanks to NetGalley and Clarion Books for an advanced copy of this to review! I was immediately drawn in by the cover, which looks absolutely adorable. This graphic novel is full of magic, whimsy, and romance. It'll be the perfect addition to your summer TBR! Right from the beginning, I loved the art style. It added to the magic and the overall world that Stirling created. While there are still details that aren't quite clear in terms of world building, I think they made up for it in character development. I loved Laurie and Ray, and the way their relationship evolved. It felt realistic, and they both were supportive of each other throughout the book. Outside of Laurie and Ray, they had a great group of friends that also allowed them to evolve and grow. And they weren't afraid to give them a kick in the pants when they needed it. I would love to live in this little magical city with this magical bakery. 100% I wish that it was real. All in all, if you're looking for a cute, romantic, summery graphic novel this July, definitely pick this one up!

A seer who's had her sights (lol) set on becoming a member of the Grand Council of Sorcerers since she was a little girl, Ray wants nothing more than to use her talents to help others. Just as she's embarking on an internship in the Council Academy, Ray meets Laurie - a barista at his aunt's cafe - throwing her well-laid plans into question. Once a week, Ray treats herself to a slice of Romance at Marigold's, where the pastries are imbued with a little something extra. Whereas most patrons claim that they're ordering Romance "for a friend," Ray unabashedly enjoys her flight of fancy right there in the cafe - and this is how she catches Laurie's eye. An aspiring musician who lost his parents in a tragic riding accident when he was a kid, Laurie is a bit more adrift than Ray. Before she retired, his aunt Marigold was a legendary member of the Grand Council of Sorcerers - no pressure! Whereas Ray's future seems all but guaranteed, Laurie grapples with rejection after rejection. Is Ray willing to sacrifice love for her dreams? And what if those dreams are a little less dazzling than she thought? Overall I enjoyed CRUMBS - the world-building is, ahem, magical; the artwork is endearing; and Stirling delves into myriad issues that young adults, magical and otherwise, commonly grapple with: self-esteem, self-discovery, navigating relationships, career paths, rejection, and coping when you get what you want and are yet still dissatisfied. CRUMBS started out as a webcomic from WEBTOON, which might explain its odd pacing: it starts to drag around 2/3 of the way through (the Ray/Laurie angst does get a little tedious, ngl), then comes to a very swift and satisfying conclusion. It almost feels like it would be better off as two books than one? Otherwise I really liked it - for me, the highlights are Sian (I love that there's no needless girl-on-girl hate); Aunt Marigold; Stella and Wobble, Ray and Laurie's magical AI assistants; and Ray's unnamed (?), tough-but-fair mentor at the Scrolls branch.

I spent time admiring not only the characters, but the settings and background as well. You could tell that each element was done with a lot of care. Plus the colours! So pretty! The plot is mainly focused on the romance, and I thought Ray and Laurie were really cute together! Their relationship was believable and it felt realistic in that they had things they needed to work on. I do wish though that we could've explored the magic system a bit more, especially the bakery since that was one of my favourite aspects of the world. Something I also enjoyed was the main message of putting yourself first. We see Ray grow a lot in terms of her relationships with her family and friends which was great to see.

    This story follows two peoples that tries to figure out what they want in life, love and everything inbetween. They make mistakes, but they also understands that and own up to their own mistakes. Sometimes they stumble along the way but they have so much character growth. They open up and reach for what they want. But also with heatlhy communication and understanding. It was so heartbreaking, so beautiful, funny and incredible. I cried. no. I sobbed really hard. This. I loved it so much.

I adore graphic novels like Crumbs - a heartwarming and romantic story, a touch of magic, and beautiful art. Crumbs started life on WEBTOON and it's great to see it brought to hardcopy publication. I read this book in January this year and it has been very hard to wait 5 months to be able to finally, finally purchase copies for my school library and share this wonderful book with readers. They are just going to adore this book and I love that it will appeal to a wide range of readers. We've seen many graphic novels for middle grade and this will appeal to those readers but the coming-of-age themes and watching Ray and Laurie follower their dreams and try to make both a career and a relationship work, will appeal to older readers.  The magic, the bakery, even little things like how their magical phone-like-devices work is delightful. The romance is very sweet, but we are also blessed by great friendship and family relationships. Crumbs is a wonderful graphic novel that needs to be on every school library shelf (but you might need multiple copies, because this one is going to be a favourite.)

However, they will soon learn that in order to love each other they must first grow as a person, and hope that in the end they end up liking the people they become. What I loved about Crumbs is that it is a cozy read, with absolutely beautiful artwork and colors (I am so glad this one wasn't in black and white, as it would have taken away from the overall feel), it tackles real life issues in a fantastical world without the issues being fantastical (they are not fighting for the world here, just each other). The world was created with care, and a lot of aspects considered (such as the weather, and the latest witchy tech - I would DIE for one of those witchy phones, even if it is an old model). There is a ton of positive LGBTQ+ Rep, the MC is bisexual (and I could have sworn she had googly eyes for Laurie's aunt at the beginning), and every other character is LGBTQ+ as well. My one bad thing is the original comic is drawn as to be read in a vertical fashion, which reads mush easier (my e-arc copy was also slightly damaged as the images were cropped weird and I had to lock my screen from rotating as originally it was upside down). Overall, I would totally read this author's next book, and will look for the older titles in the backlog.
