***Advance Review Copy generously provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Oh, I had no idea that this book was happening. I previously enjoyed the first book very much but for some reason this art sort of disappeared from my facebook. In the past, it used to flood my feed but thinking about it; I did not see one in a very long time.
So, I was a bit surprised, seeing this book, since I did not hear any news about it being published.

And you can bet that I almost knocked over

I never get tired of Catana's comics, and this collection was just as adorable as I expected it to be. My spouse and I always love these because we feel like they're so very us. Honestly, nobody nails "relatable" humor quite as well as Catana does when it comes to cute, casual couple stuff!

(^ literally me)

If it tells you anything about how much I loved this, despite being the sort of person who almost never pre-orders finished copies of comic collections, I ran off to pre-order this the moment

This is super cute and so full of love and understanding! How will I ever not love Catana's comics.... I am invested for this lifetime.

The comic style is a bit less attractive than the first collection I would say. Otherwise the art sequence and everything works out fine.

As it is just about the couple, it becomes a bit monotonous and a bit repetitive.
But you know what? It is just amazing and sweet! It was difficult not to feel super single while reading this.

I enjoyed it a lot. I see lots of

The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This graphic novel is so cute! It's a collection of short comics all about Catana, the artist, and her boyfriend John. You can clearly see how much they love each other and the comics are lovely.
This book is going to be published at the beginning of February and I honestly think it would make the perfect Valentine's Day's present for your significant other.

How I read this: Free ebook copy received through NetGalley

This is incredibly cute, as Catana comics always are! There were quite a lot of new ones I hadn't seen in this collection, and I really enjoyed it. So did my boyfriend, as we were reading it together!

I thank the publisher for giving me a free copy of the ebook in exchange to my honest review. This has not affected my opinion.

This is the second book of it's kind and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this in exchange for an honest review.

Another great book in this series. I follow the author on Instagram so I had already seen a couple of the pages presented in this book but not all (did I miss them, not remember them or re they «exclusive»). Anyway that was lot of fun to read, i just see myself and y wife, and us as a couple, so much in those two characters!! Funny, cute and a good dose of feel good time/read!

No rating for this one.

No matter what I do, I cannot open this book in any eReader I have at my disposal. Tried multiple times but ended up in frustration which is such a shame as I was looking forward to reading this. I sometimes have this problem, not all the time, mind you since I download and review many graphical books from NetGalley. This might be something for publishers to figure out.

Snug is so stinking adorable! There were so many parts that reminded me of my relationship with my hubby now, as well as great reminders of how we were earlier in our relationship - which serves as great motivation to reclaim some of those old ways and habits. I love the simple art style and how very relatable each page is. I can't wait to add a hardcopy of the book when it comes out so that I can share it with my hubby. 4 out of 5 wine glasses.

I Picked Up This Book Because: I’ve seen random comics by this author on social media and was interested in the book.

The Story:

These little bug eyed cuties have stolen my heart.. And maybe part of my personality. These illustrations are cute, true and would make for an excellent coffee table book. I hope this author continues to illustrate her truth.

I had come across some of Catana's comics around the internet and always found them amusing!

Snug is a collection of comics about everyday relationship situations which are entirely relatable and adorable!

I received an advance review copy from Andrews McMeel Publishing through Netgalley; all opinions are my own and honest.

My heart is so freaking full. I love the brand-new comics and the previously-posted ones equally, and I really enjoyed the mix of single-panel scenes among the classic four-panel setups. I said in my review of her first collection that all I wanted was some scenes of the doggo, and my wish was granted!

This collection had me grinning basically the whole time I was reading it, and

Ohhh, this was too cute and the perfect cozy read as the colder months approach. I first found Catana’s comics a few years ago, when her boyfriend posted one on Reddit and it was a hit. Since then I have sent SO many of her comics to my now husband said “look, it’s us!” - to which he normally replies “wow, it’s like she has a camera in our apartment!”. It has been a joy to follow Catana Comics on social media and watch as her comics have developed and improved over the years.

I stumbled across this book on NetGalley, and obviously, having seen multiple comics by Catana around all over the interwebs, I had to read it.

The sweet, simplified and yet adorable style of art is what won me over once. The relatability of the situations described keeps me at it. This book is designed to make you feel, well... Snug!

If you have ever loved, ever known the joy of sharing inside jokes and the delight of staying home with your better half instead of running around like a squirrel

This second volume, collecting the popular and adorable "Catana Comics", is full of cute, relatable, and fluffy comics based around the artist's relationship with her boyfriend. Together, they enjoy cuddling, food, and supporting one another. Relationship goals are met and exceeded as Catana and John easily read each other's expressions to know when it is time to leave the party and go home to make

This was a very cute book. I haven't had a chance to read the first book by this author but that did not take anything away from it.

Having been with my best friend for 14 years I easily relate to almost every situation the author depicts. The drawing style is very simplistic which allow for a quick and easy read, except for when you can't quite make out what they are doing in the whipping scene. However, it did give me a laugh when I finally figured out what he was doing to her.

There isn't any

Catana Chetwynd continues her Catana Comics in Snug: A Collection of Comics about Dating Your Best Friend. Due for a timely February release (Valentine's gift anyone?), Catana's adorable art style and relatable comic panels are just as enjoyable in this collection.

I have been a fan of Catana's webcomics for quite some time and her simplistic visual style makes for such an aesthetically

Thanks so much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for letting me read and review this wonderfully fun, entertaining and adorable comic.
My husband introduced me to these comics by Catana Chetwynd a while ago because they are so similar and accurate at describing us and our relationship with our quirkiness and everything.
It's a quick, light read full of cute, quirky and very relatable comics with simple, yet fun and great drawings as well.

Snug lives up to its name. It gave me a warm embrace and made me send my bf a bunch of love messages because it made me fell in love with love.


It's a really cute book where Catana captures her relationship in cute moments, that feels so relatable.

Whenever I see these little comics on social media, they make me so happy.
So when I saw this available on NetGalley I just HAD to read it, and I'm glad I could!

This is a bundle of little comics surrounding relationships, and let me tell you; a lot of them are SO relatable! haha
I can't get enough of these comics and they make me want to snuggle with my bf :D
Definitely recommend checking this out!
4.5 stars.

Catana Comics always put a smile on my face. Catana Chetwynd has a wonderfully simple style that allows the little moments to be highlighted in a way that is intensely relatable. This collection really is as snug as the title would indicate, and it's made for some wonderfully light reading. Snug is the kind of comics collection that has you pestering your partner to be like "hey look, this is US."

I'd recommend Snug for anyone who is already a fan of Catana Comics, or to anyone who

Sweet and real. I was able to identify and swoon over so many of these adorable comics. They depict my marriage to my best friend in such a cute and authentic way. I enjoyed this so much because it is so honest. I have done so many of these actions with my spouse and even if he is annoyed by them we both smiled while paging through these comics. I want this in a desk calendar!!!

Snug is the second collection from Catana Comics, one of my favorite comics creators. I love the sweet, relatable comics Catana creates, and love sharing them with my boyfriend, as they are often very similar to our relationship. This would be a great gift for an anniversary, other special occasion, or just as a little reminder to your special someone that you love them.

Thanks to Andrews McMeel Publishing for the ARC!

How to describe this book other than "big aw"?
This was exactly what I needed after a big anxiety day while getting all snug in bed with my best friend, my fiance. Lots of "haha look it's us" moments and lots of just feel good and warm inside moments. Adored this!

This was an absolutely adorable collection of short comics about dating the right person. I moved in recently with my (also tall and bearded) boyfriend and I found this so relatable and funny. I think any 20 or 30 something in a similar stage of life would as well!
