No one can resist a truly great love story
If you've been on the internet at all in the past two years, then there's a good chance you've heard of Philipa Rice's graphic novel Soppy: A Love Story - and, if you haven't, you can thank me later that I introduced you to it.

Soppy is full of comics and illustrations about what really matters in a relationship. It's not about living an extravagant lifestyle with big, romantic gestures, lavish holidays or a massive house: it's about the small, everyday moments that mean the world to you because you get to live each one with your best friend.

Anyone who has had the experience of living with their partner will thoroughly enjoy this book. Watching Philipa's and her boyfriend's relationship grow will positively make you swoon, and reminisce about the beginning of your own relationship - because, even though it may not make sense to some, there's something magical about getting your first piece of mail that has both of your names on it, even if it is just a gas bill, and there's something exciting about sneaking out to the kitchen and getting a midnight snack together, no matter your age.

All in all, Soppy is a very heartwarming story that helps puts some aspects of life into perspective. It makes you stop and think for a moment, to truly appreciate what you have in your life, and there's no way you won't want to wrap your arms around your loved one and just thank them for being with you after you've read it.
