The wildly popular web comic SOPPY–with more than half a million notes on Tumblr–is the illustrated love story of author Philippa Rice and her real-life boyfriend. True love isn’t always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it’s about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.
SOPPY is Philippa Rice’s collection of comics and illustrations based on real-life moments with her boyfriend. From grocery shopping to silly arguments and snuggling in front of the television, SOPPY captures the universal experience of sharing a life together, and celebrates the beauty of finding romance all around us.
I really liked it. It’s so simple, yet beautiful and real. It’s the story of 2 people who fall in love, and their journey while moving together for the first time. I love the drawings and the colors. There aren’t may colors in this book, only red and black, but they’re so vibrant and beautiful. Most of the pictures doesn’t have any words on it, so this is such a quick, cute, read. I read it in one sitting, and highly recommend it as a gift for your boyf/girlf or if you want to read it together 🙂
Here’s some snippets of the part that I think suits me:
