    this was so adorable!! if you're looking for two soft boys baking and falling in love, look no further! ...

    I just want everyone on this planet to read this lovely queer graphic novel. Is that too much to ask? I have no idea though why this book was published in FEBRUARY because it is 100% a summer read and for a second there, after finishing it, I wondered if the snow outside had perhaps...

    I was having a really crummy day but then I decided to read my ARC of this. It was so fun and easy to read. A great story that took my emotions for a ride. Thank you to First Second for providing me with an ARC |blog| Bottom Line: 5 Stars: Yuri on Icing ? Age Recommendatio...

    This is the first graphic romance novel that I have every read and although it was a bit weird reading it at times I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The artwork for it was outstanding and really added a lot to the read. The story was sweet and totally adorable. Loved it a lot! ...

    4.5 stars. This was ADORABLE, had amazing art, some really well written parts, and I LOVED that it discussed not knowing what you want to do with your life post high school-which is so important as a huge amount of teens have the same inner struggles. 4.5 stars from me though bec...

    THIS WAS SO GOOD AND SOFT AND CUTE AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ...

    that was absolutely adorable! I'm so glad I got to buddy read this with my friend Laura because we were both in a cute mood and it was perfection! I loved how baking is such an important part of this graphic novel, you can see how much it means to both characters and how baking shaped ...

    Blog | Twitter | Instagram | Bloglovin | Reads Rainbow I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Ari is Greek and his parents own a bakery, where he helps out. But his real dream is to finish school and move to Baltimore with his friends ...

    Um quadrinho lindo e extremamente sensível sobre se apaixonar, compartilhar pequenas intimidades e decidir as prioridades da sua vida. Ari e Hector se conectam de uma forma muito bonita e isso fica muito evidente nos diálogos e nos detalhes da arte. As flores que ~desabrocham~ confor...

    I got this as an arc and the file was corrupt and unreadable but I was able to get about 65 pages into it and was intrigued enough to purchase a finished copy and I'm glad I did. It was a sweet story about Ari who doesn't want his life to consist of his parent's bakery and Hector who o...

    we love boys who explore tender masculinity and sexualities !!!! ok but wow, reading Bloom was like receiving a warm hug. the artwork w/ the teal color palette was so beautiful. i adored the wide panels of the beach and the boys baking in the bakery... like! my heart! the boys were ver...

    Actual rating: 2.75 I really dug the muted colors? all blends of blue/blue-grays/blue-greens/black & white. Oftentimes, simple coloring is necessary, and it worked well here. The art itself wasn?t overly-detailed, either. I noticed some of the production sketches in the back...

    A solid 3.5. Very cute story. Lots of baking which made me really hungry. Ari can be clueless but he and Hector together are adorable. ...

    Soft boys and baked goods, this book was so heartwarming, I loved it! <3 Full review coming soon! Thank you to MacMillan International for the e-ARC of this book and to JM @ Book Freak Revelations for inviting me along for the Bloom Blog Tour. This did not, in any way, influenc...

    Rating 3 Stars Pros: -The art style is cartoony and adorable. -The monochromatic blue pallet was interesting and worked well. -The world doesn't deserve Hector he's so pure and wonderful. Cons: -Ari is a whiny little brat that I couldn't stand. -Ari's friends are dicks to He...

    4.5 Stars. That was just... just so wholesome. Just what I needed. Bloom is one of those graphic novels that you just love because of how soft and sweet it is. It definitely acts as a palate cleanser that contains some of the best tropes: firework viewing, star gazing, soft boys...

    This was such a wholesome read. I adored the art style - the monochromatic blue color scheme worked so well. There were so many baking montage pages that were GORGEOUS and just so peaceful to read. My only criticism for this book was that I wasn't a huge fan of the protagonist. The lov...

    Ohhhhh my gosh. I'm following the artist's webcomic George and Johnny, which is all kinds of adorable and cute, and when I saw this book's cover, the style seemed incredibly familiar but I couldn't instantly place it. BUT NOW I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS. More on "Bloom". ...

    "Still waiting for a reviewer to call Bloom ?Yuri on Icing? - Kevin Panetta 32 minutes ago on Twitter. Bloom is Yuri on Icing. (You're welcome, Kevin) ...

    This is such a cute graphic novel! I really enjoyed it, and I loved the characters. My favourite thing about this is the art, which is very emotive. The writing felt a tad forced at times, breaking the flow of the story a little. Another minor criticism is that I thought the story was ...

    AWWWW Y'ALL !!! this book is the epitome of soft. i love two (2) bakery boyfriends ...

    Pretty much perfect. ...

    This was adorable! I really enjoyed the story, the bakery setting and I especially liked the art and the coloring! ...

    Really cute gay romance centered around a bakery in a little beachside community. The art is adorable--stylistically, it reminds me a lot of Heartstopper--and the side characters are all nicely developed and well-realized; the whole world of this book, actually, is just so charming (th...

    4.5 stars. This was ADORABLE, had amazing art, some really well written parts, and I LOVED that it discussed not knowing what you want to do with your life post high school-which is so important as a huge amount of teens have the same inner struggles. 4.5 stars from me though bec...

    Actual rating: 2.75 I really dug the muted colors? all blends of blue/blue-grays/blue-greens/black & white. Oftentimes, simple coloring is necessary, and it worked well here. The art itself wasn?t overly-detailed, either. I noticed some of the production sketches in the back...

    4.5 Stars. That was just... just so wholesome. Just what I needed. Bloom is one of those graphic novels that you just love because of how soft and sweet it is. It definitely acts as a palate cleanser that contains some of the best tropes: firework viewing, star gazing, soft boys...

    This was such a wholesome read. I adored the art style - the monochromatic blue color scheme worked so well. There were so many baking montage pages that were GORGEOUS and just so peaceful to read. My only criticism for this book was that I wasn't a huge fan of the protagonist. The lov...

    Ohhhhh my gosh. I'm following the artist's webcomic George and Johnny, which is all kinds of adorable and cute, and when I saw this book's cover, the style seemed incredibly familiar but I couldn't instantly place it. BUT NOW I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS. More on "Bloom". ...

    First off, I'm not the age demographic this is aimed at (teens), nor do I read many graphic novels (at most, 2 or 3 a year). That said, this was a bit of a sappy throwback to the type of teens depicted in the Archie comic days, and bear little resemblance to the modern teens I see and ...

    This is the first graphic romance novel that I have every read and although it was a bit weird reading it at times I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The artwork for it was outstanding and really added a lot to the read. The story was sweet and totally adorable. Loved it a lot! ...

    4.5 stars. This was ADORABLE, had amazing art, some really well written parts, and I LOVED that it discussed not knowing what you want to do with your life post high school-which is so important as a huge amount of teens have the same inner struggles. 4.5 stars from me though bec...

    that was absolutely adorable! I'm so glad I got to buddy read this with my friend Laura because we were both in a cute mood and it was perfection! I loved how baking is such an important part of this graphic novel, you can see how much it means to both characters and how baking shaped ...

    I got this as an arc and the file was corrupt and unreadable but I was able to get about 65 pages into it and was intrigued enough to purchase a finished copy and I'm glad I did. It was a sweet story about Ari who doesn't want his life to consist of his parent's bakery and Hector who o...

    we love boys who explore tender masculinity and sexualities !!!! ok but wow, reading Bloom was like receiving a warm hug. the artwork w/ the teal color palette was so beautiful. i adored the wide panels of the beach and the boys baking in the bakery... like! my heart! the boys were ver...

    Actual rating: 2.75 I really dug the muted colors? all blends of blue/blue-grays/blue-greens/black & white. Oftentimes, simple coloring is necessary, and it worked well here. The art itself wasn?t overly-detailed, either. I noticed some of the production sketches in the back...

    A solid 3.5. Very cute story. Lots of baking which made me really hungry. Ari can be clueless but he and Hector together are adorable. ...

    Soft boys and baked goods, this book was so heartwarming, I loved it! <3 Full review coming soon! Thank you to MacMillan International for the e-ARC of this book and to JM @ Book Freak Revelations for inviting me along for the Bloom Blog Tour. This did not, in any way, influenc...

    Rating 3 Stars Pros: -The art style is cartoony and adorable. -The monochromatic blue pallet was interesting and worked well. -The world doesn't deserve Hector he's so pure and wonderful. Cons: -Ari is a whiny little brat that I couldn't stand. -Ari's friends are dicks to He...

    4.5 Stars. That was just... just so wholesome. Just what I needed. Bloom is one of those graphic novels that you just love because of how soft and sweet it is. It definitely acts as a palate cleanser that contains some of the best tropes: firework viewing, star gazing, soft boys...

    This was such a wholesome read. I adored the art style - the monochromatic blue color scheme worked so well. There were so many baking montage pages that were GORGEOUS and just so peaceful to read. My only criticism for this book was that I wasn't a huge fan of the protagonist. The lov...

    Ohhhhh my gosh. I'm following the artist's webcomic George and Johnny, which is all kinds of adorable and cute, and when I saw this book's cover, the style seemed incredibly familiar but I couldn't instantly place it. BUT NOW I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS. More on "Bloom". ...

    This is such a cute graphic novel! I really enjoyed it, and I loved the characters. My favourite thing about this is the art, which is very emotive. The writing felt a tad forced at times, breaking the flow of the story a little. Another minor criticism is that I thought the story was ...
