Lovesick Ellie Volume 1
Thank you so much to the author, Kodansha Comics, and NetGalley for the complimentary ARC!
This review contains my honest and unbiased thoughts and opinions. 🌸
I laughed so much while reading this manga!
I can’t believe I kept overlooking this manga! There were so many times I almost downloaded it to my Kindle but never did, thinking it might not be for me.
Oh boy was I wrong!
I truly enjoyed reading this manga!
It’s most definitely “for me”!
Ellie is such a romantic yet so completely awkward, I think we all can relate to Ellie in some way. Ellie is shy and quiet in person yet has this secret identity online where she posts her fantasy love life with the most popular boy at school. Like many, Ellie’s Twitter/online personality is bold compared to her reactions to the same situations in person, she’s so unsure of herself and weird in person just like I use to be (or still am haha).
Not only does said boy discover her secret online account, he turns out to be more of a jerk than the romantic guy she pictures in her fantasy!
The guy definitely has some major jerk moments, he started out quite unlikeable and I wondered if this would be on of those where the guy is a jerk the entire series.
Turns out, he’s totally crushing as well!
and is a little awkward himself! Mr. Popular has his moments as well.
We start to watch as romance unfolds, completely awkward with lots of fun moments.
We also see Ellie come out of her shell just a tiny bit.
This is a fun, cute romantic manga and I can’t wait to continue reading to see how things progress!
