48HBC: Second Book-Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life

I first heard about this graphic novel series thanks to the library comic strip Unshelved. They featured it in their Sunday Book Club. I was interested in checking it out, but then I found out it's going to be a movie starring Michael Cera, so I knew I had to start reading it!

The basic premise is that Scott Pilgrim meets Romana Flowers (he first sees her in the library, so I immediately fell in love!) and in order to date her he has to fight off her seven evil ex-boyfriends. It's fun, fast paced, witty, weird and quirky and I can't wait to read more. I wish I had gotten the other books in the series-I'm putting them on hold now!

The only thing is there's only five volumes out now, so the movie will have a different ending than the books, but maybe that's a good thing because then I could really take them as two different things and not be disappointed by comparisons.

Ok, I've made it to three hours! I'm off to read a new one!
