ok, now that I've made it through two volumes of this series I feel like I can give it a bit of a better review besides just saying it's cute (but it is ADORABLE. cannot stress that enough)

stuff I like:
- the art! did i mention the word...cute? it's so soft and full of beautiful blue, pink, and purple pastels. genuinely wish i could look at it all day and never even have to blink
- the setting! fantasy college town full of magical creatures? YES PLS. werewolves, centaurs, minotaurs, fairies, seers

The art is cute and the characters are fun but for the second volume in a row, I find I can barely figure out what's supposed to be going on in the plot. Characters seem to be imperiled, but also days seem to pass concurrently that are full of leisurely visits the mall and the coffee shop? The stakes this time around seem SUPER low, which is fine, but like, they aren't even interestingly low. And once again, we seem to be building to a climax that is confusingly diffused in a page or two.

Unfortunately, the problems I had with the first volume continue here: Julie and Selena don't seem like a super healthy couple. At least, they're not the cute fluffy romance I was looking for from this. They fight and are hurtful. Selena can be insulting, and Julie is clearly nervous and will be in tears. Plus, I didn't have any interest in the plot of this volume. I'm disappointed, because I love the art and the world, but I won't be continuing.

Chet continues to be my favourite, though, and I

Oof, I find this series so frustrating. In both arcs Ellis sets up an interesting premise and some side plots, only to abandon them or have things solve themselves for reasons unexplained. It's happened in both arcs now and I've found it infuriating. In addition this relationship between Julie and Selina isn't cute at all. Selina changes personalities at times becoming quite toxic and self-centered. If Julie was an actual friend of mine, I'd be worried she's in an abusive relationship. It's not ...more

I was super excited for volume 2 of Moonstruck!!! But I'm honestly pretty disappointed? I love the characters, love all the of representation, love the world but...the whole thing left me so confused.

I honestly don't know what the plot of this was? There were fairies? They trapped people? And then...??? It also seemed like things were always happening to the characters instead of the characters actually doing anything. Even during the resolution, Grace and Selena didn't do anything! It just hap

What a confusing, pointless plot, and what an unhealthy relationship these two have! Like. Wow. Dump her now.

Two stars because I still really like the art, and some of the character designs are cute.

Moonstruck’s first volume was an intriguing fantasy story with a clear social commentary, albeit some pacing and story issues. This arc (and the last one I’ll be reading of this series) focuses around a fairy fraternity that has trapped some of Julie’s musician friends in their frat house, and won’t let them go until…the entire band plays at their next party? Yes, it’s as ridiculous and boring as it sounds, and it gets even more confusing when Julie and the gang ask for help from Fairy Elsa of t ...more

YOU WOULD THINK that now that the characters and setting have been somewhat established, we could dive in to more and get better stories and more information about all the characters, both their magic/existence AND their personalities, right?

WELL APPARENTLY NOT

If anything, it's worse than the first book. That one at least had a vaguely-understandable plot (Chet's (view spoiler) and stop baddies from stealing othe

Sadly disappointed by this instalment. I adored Volume 1 of this series; it was so fun, the fantastical elements/magical realism were great, Julie and Selena were adorable and I ate it up like a cupcake. The second volume, however, feels a bit lacking.

First of all, the plot was... I'm hesitant to say a mess, but it definitely wasn't especially coherent. I found it hard to get a sense of exactly what the plot WAS. We hopped all over the place and I found myself quite confused. I also found myself

This comic series is so dang cute and I will never get over it's adorableness. Like the last volume, the characters are all so sweet and the world that has been created is such a fun one to read about.

The characters are some of my favorite parts of this series. Especially Julie and Selena, who are this adorable werewolf couple who have the sweetest moments in the entire show. I think this series in general is a fluffy fun story about all kinds of supernatural characters, but I think Julie and

Like I said in the Saga post I recently went on a bit of a graphic novel reading spree, reading three graphic novels and possibly a fourth before going back and finishing Obsido. I had already read and reviewed Moonstruck volume one when it first came out, I was super excited about this series. It sounded super adorable and full of magic and maybe even some mysteries. So recently I saw volume two pop up on Hoopla I went ahead and borrowed it.

It starts off that from where Vol 1 ended and Julie has landed a gig writing the next story of her favorite series and we see little snippets of her work but she isn't ready to show her girlfriend Selena what she has written and problems ensue. I get this is not a high stakes GN but the author really wants to throw drama in the series for zero reason. Selena and Julie bicker back and forth and then suddenly make-up. It's not needed and really distracting. We just want to see a cute relationship

I received an ARC copy of this book from Edelweiss

Another really cute volume in this series. It's definitely not a high-stakes book, but the character designs are really cute [I loved the Frat Bro Faeries in particular] and watching two anxious lesbian werewolves running around apologizing to each other constantly is just weirdly adorable. It did seem like the way that the faeries' magic worked wasn't always consistent, but it was still a really fun read so I think it's easy to let a few small t

Meh.
I fell in love with the world on the first few pages of the first volume and quite liked the characters although the plot was already weak there. Here I started to get disenchanted with the characters too, what is this drama rama with the book writing girls? Makes no sense at all.
Secondly, even I know that you don't consume ANYTHING when you go to a fairy party so how do people who LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE FAIRIES ARE REAL get surprised by it?
I am very rarely shout-y in my reviews but I'm ups

Ugh I don’t know what it is about this series where both books have left me feeling flat and dissatisfied. There are so many elements I like - queer characters, lots of magic, great art style - but the plots don’t really excite me and I’m completely uninvested in the main couple, making their conflict irritating rather than compelling.

This book went much better than the 1st of this series (still unsure how many books they will continue with), though the transitioning is choppy.

I sat down and read it in sitting. I wasn't surprised that in the beginning when someone gets an invitation to an event, then I know something bad will happen.

I mostly enjoyed the artwork and sped read the actual conversation. I cannot stand that it still includes the "Sunny Days" comic -> CORRECTION: Pleasant Mountain sister *CRINGE* (even though it so

I couldn't help myself. I saw it and was like "As long as I'm here buying volume one...I may as well just get volume two...." and as I predicted, this was another five star graphic novel. I need to start seriously collecting these. I don't know why I was avoiding them. This didn't go into some plot lines I would have wanted to see, but we did get introduced to a new potential romance that I want to see the progression of and we got more of Selena and Julie just developing as a couple. We got the ...more

Very cute, but the two main female characters don’t seem to have a super healthy relationship!! The highlight was the Ask-A-Know-It-All section, I would read a book that was more to that tone!!

Volume 1 was so confusing to me, but I thought I’d give volume 2 a try to see if it was any different. Nope... still confusing. I have no idea what’s going on most of the time, so I have no concept of what the stakes are.

Also, Selena sucks! I kinda felt like she was toxic to Julie in volume 1, but I was so confused about what was happening, I figured maybe I misunderstood. Once again, nope. Selena makes Julie feel bad about everything, insults her to her core, then brushes it all of as “a werew

When Julie and her friends are invited to a party, the think it’ll be a great place to relax and have fun. Unfortunately for them, it turns out the party involves a fairy circle full of fraternity bros who end up trapping one of them. It’s up to Julie, Selena, and Chet to break their friend out and disengage from the fairy politics they’ve been sucked into.

I thought the first volume was such a cute story that I was really excited to finally pick up this volume. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t enj

Volume 2 has another puzzle to figure out, this time, it's how to get the Beta Fraternity of fairies to release Lindi and Veronica, members of a band who insulted the band at a Beta party.

The second volume has a lot more omissions and jumps in storyline, and a few stranger parts, like when Julie is told to leave the super secret Beta ritual, but after a declaration of stubbornness, it's ok if she stays and watches? Also (even the charact

I really love these characters. I liked the addition of the new "villains" as the diversity of the magical universe of Moonstruck continues to develop and open up. And while at times it felt like this went in circles instead of advancing forward in terms of story progression ... I am still super invested in volumes to come. And thankfully, there was nothing about Chet's butt in this one because there was A LOT about Chet's butt in the first one.

After this one and the first volume, I'm seeing the pattern of rushed endings and not feeling completely fulfilled by the end of the book. But the art is still adorable and the characters are still great. Just wish the story felt more complete by the end. Granted, there was a To Be Continued at the end of this one, but still. There were a lot of plot points that left me with more questions than answers. Now where's volume 3? ...more

I am a little torn about this series because I love the characters and the art which is absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, I do not enjoy the storyline all that much. It's not bad, it's just not very interesting, so I don't know if I'll be continuing on with the series because of my lack of interest in the stories created by the author. Once again, amazing rep and diversity though. ...more
