From Goodreads: In a very special town, there’s an even more unusual bakery with a selection of baked treats hand-crafted to help your dreams come true. For Ray, a quiet young woman with special powers of her own, the order is always the same: a hot tea with a delicious side of romance.
When Ray meets Laurie, the kind barista who aspires to be a professional musician, she gets a real taste of love for the first time. But even with a spark of magic, romance isn’t so simple. Both Ray and Laurie are chasing their own dreams and even when Ray starts to see the future, she can’t predict her fate with Laurie.
Based on the beloved webcomic from WEBTOON, this sweet coming-of-age story of friendship and first love comes to life in graphic novel format with gorgeous illustrations and exclusive content.
Thank you HCC Frenzy for providing me with an advanced copy of this book through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Crumbs is a YA graphic novel with a little bit of magic, a little bit of romance, and a whole love of cuteness. It follows Ray, who is a seer, and Laurie, a barista and musician. Both Ray and Laurie are trying to follow their dreams, but they aren’t quite sure what those dreams are. It also features a café that serves treats like romance, focus, and contentment.
This graphic novel was very easy to read and get into. I loved the artwork in it and the colour choices. Overall, I thought it had some very lovely cozy vibes to it.
As far as the story goes, I thought it was very cute. I liked Ray and Laurie, I liked their relationship, and I liked that they were still trying to figure out what their dreams were. I also liked the side characters and how they were able to have difficult conversations when needed.
I liked that this graphic novel had a little bit of magic in it. I liked that there was flying on brooms and a magical counsel.
Overall, I thought this was a very cute graphic novel and I will definitely keep an eye out for more work by Danie Stirling.
