I have to say, I'm a little ensaddned by this volume.
I thought that the writing would be better by now. It's not. It might actually be getting worse.

Like with the first compilation, this is perfect for its intended audience. Kids are going to eat this up! And that is awesome! However, it's always my hope that when a reader reads something, little lessons are planted in the brain. How to write well will not be one of those little lessons in this case and that makes me sad.
Example: Right off the b

Still just as much fun as the first volume, if a bit less pointed in its commentary. Adrienne is starting to get the hang of this adventuring thing, and heads off to rescue older sister Angelica. Her plans go awry when she finds that Angelica doesn't want to be rescued at all.

Angelica herself is a poke at the Fairest of them All princess. She's so beautiful that it's all she does, and she's happy with that. Somewhat surprisingly, she isn't all that bad. When she gets to tell her own story, it be

I was so sad when this volume ended...this collection was awesome! It's empowering to see as a POC that if you want to be

1) Heroic (battle-ready) Princess
2) Gothic-Emo Princess
3) Cute Princess
4) Beautiful Muse---just-stand-there-and-look-good Princess
5) Can't remember the other sister portrayals.

It doesn't matter:

You can be not only any type of princess you chose, but any type of label classification you want to be... I like the talk about 'looking nice' whether its for yourself, or the poet

So much going on in this second volume. The deluxe edition includes short stories. Princess Adrienne, Sparky, and Bedelia are off to rescue Angelica, the most beautiful princess.

Honesty, I want give this five stars because some one takes off their heels before running. Love that touch.

There are wonderful comments about poetry and writing. This is a really enjoyable series.

Self-rescuing princess Adrienne continues her adventures with companions Bedelia, the half dwarf blacksmith and Sparky the dragon. Unable to rescue her youngest sister, Adrienne goes after the beautiful Angelica instead, only to find that Angelica may not want to be rescued. Meanwhile, their father has found the most deadly and unique bounty hunters in the land and tasks them with finding the knight whom he believes killed Adrienne.

As promised in our interview, this volume of Princeless is less

Super fun second volume of the Princeless tales. This one involves "rescuing" the Aphrodite-like "beautiful" sister of our fair protagonist. A cool new monster, some witty repartee, and an interesting subplot in the woods make this a breezy, fun read.

I appreciate the intentional nature of this series - Whitley's playing with gender norms in classic fairytales and bringing feminism and people of color front and center.

I do wish (all of) the characters weren't so traditionally hot, though. When y

Go, you kickass girls!!
I liked how this volume showed that while we have those girls who will knock you off in the main team, a woman does not have to be a fighter type to be a 'strong character'. There are many ways to be strong and having more interests and qualities that are considered to be 'feminine' does not make a character weak. Angelica still had flaws, of course, but even after her character development, she decided to improve her life while staying true to herself.

This is such a fun series. I'm enjoying the "let's turn everything you believe about fairy tales upside down" foundation. The art is colorful and fun. The princesses are not what you'd expect. And now there's a secret and a mystery!

On to book 3!

I was recently made aware of the importance of getting enough of me-time. For me, reading has always been one of the best ways for that. Book blogging, however, has been shifting more and more towards free time and often even feels like work time (in a good way, though, don't get me wrong). Reading this book with a cup of tea and a nice piece of Portland's infamous Almond&Salt chocolate truly felt like solid me-time again; huzzah!

Like you probably have, I saw a lot of buzz about Princeless on Tumblr wandering around-- mostly not ads, mostly comic panels and the basic idea being praised, so when I saw it at my local library, I pounced and read through the entire thing in one day.

That's not actually much of an achievement, I want to say. Princeless is pretty short, even in volume format, though each volume is a contained arc within story (which I appreciated). Volume 1 follows our heroine, Adrienne, as she embarks on her q

This second volume finds the runaway Princess Adrienne and her sidekicks on a mission to save the most beautiful princess in the world, who also happens to be Adrienne's older sister. Meanwhile Daddy (the King) has hired a band of mercenaries. High jinx ensue.

This continues to be a fun graphic novel series for middle grade readers, but it is clear that there was a bigger budget for this volume. I continue to enjoy this series, but this installment was less pointed than the first one, and what's

Brilliant. I'm definitely loving this storyline, the characters, and the artwork. In this volume, Adrienne is off to save her "loveliest" sister Angelica and meets the first of a set of mercenaries her father has sent after her to avenge her own murder. It also looks like the Queen, her mother, was attacked (there are hints this is not the case and I definitely have my fun theories!) I can't recommend this feisty self-made-knight princess and her hammer-wielding blacksmith sidekick enough. It's ...more

Teenaged girls with swords battling sexist and racist tropes of fantasy! w00t!

Adrienne is off with Bedelia and Sparky to rescue her sister Angelica, the most beautiful princess-in-a-tower in the land. Meanwhile her father, King Ashe, has summoned the greatest hunters/princes/adventurers to track down the monster responsible for Adrienne's supposed death.

Fun stuff, highly recommended to young comic book enthusiasts in particular.

Continues to be good. Even though parts of the series come across as obvious moralising over gendered expectations, I liked that the "beauty is everything" sister wasn't cast as someone completely useless. Sometimes when a female character takes on male characteristics to be empowered, it can fall into some misogynist traps. I like that this series does not do that.

I'm glad this has more of a plot -- the characters are really coming together -- and I'm looking forward to learn more about the mom. I'm a bit disappointed that the artist switched and wish they could find someone who can do black girl hair.

Have I mentioned how much I love this series?

I did in the review for the last volume?

Well, that all still stands.

Absolutely love this. Yay turning tropes on their heads.

I loved this one so much more than the first. I connected a lot more with the characters and am intrigued by the storyline.

I love how strong the female characters are. I loved that about the last volume too. I think both the Mc and her companion are amazing. The side characters have been great as well and I hope a few of them will play more of a part in the next few volumes.

I love the artwork in this. It's done so well and it's use of colors is amazing.

Yes. Love the exaggerated themes, ha. Can't wait to meet all the sisters and see their personalities. I can tell it's going to be fun! Also, I just really love Adrienne and Bedelia. Also, Adrienne's brother. And I'm excited to see what Mom is up to!
