    A fun read, this book with the brothers were hilarious. Especially their attempts at poetry. The serious brother gifted the maiden his lock of hair as a way to woo her! The youngest brother seems childish. It would have been great if readers were informed of their individual age.

The serious brother gifted the maiden his lock of hair as a way to woo her! The youngest brother seems childish. It would have been great if readers were informed of their individual age. The illustrations made the story extra funny, with characters looking surprise with their extra wide open mouths. I liked the housekeeper with her perching up on the tip top of the chair just to see outside of the tall window. The ghost and the Bile’s true form was definitely unexpected. Yes, like Haley, I would prefer their former body. The tool to catch the Bile was clever and took me by surprise. This book followed Haley. Her teacher just told her to pick a new topic for her book report because she did it again on gothic romance. On her way home, she saw someone in the water under the bridge. She jumped in to rescue him. They were washed up on the rocks and the next day some men found Haley and brought her to Willowweep Manor. The oldest brother, Laurence wanted to send Haley home but she wanted to stay to explore and recognized that the guy she rescued the night before was the middle brother. Laurence warned Haley that Willowweep Manor wasn’t safe for visitors. Haley soon found out that there’s this Bile that was trying to destroy Willowweep and she decided to stay to help rid of it. The Dire Days of Willowweep Manor was an interesting read. I haven’t read anything like it so I enjoyed the unique story line. The brooding oldest brother and his dare to make his day any worse was a scene to be adored. The illustrations for his face was just right! There’s a bit of LGBT love at the end that I was not expecting, so despite the recommended reading age to be 12, I would say this book is for teens instead of middle grade like I originally thought. I liked that Haley decided for herself what she was instead of settling on the title given to her by the brothers. Also she alone decided what she can and can’t do instead of letting others decide for her. It’s inspiring for young readers to have strong characters to look up to. I recommend everyone to read this book! xoxo, Jasmine at www.howusefulitis.com for more details Many thanks to Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing for the opportunity to read and review.

    I'm a Gothic Heroine. And I've read a heck of a lot of books. When Haley tries to rescue a drowning man she slips through a crack into a strange, yet familiar world - a world filled with gothic tropes: moody gentlemen, ghosts, and iron-willed housekeepers. But, there's an evil presence that threatens to destroy this delightful place, and Haley's book-smart knowledge of dusty old novels may just come in handy when it comes to saving the world.

A huge amount of thanks to NetGalley, and the publisher for letting me read this entertaining book. I can't wait to buy my own copy.

    By far the best alternate universe portal fantasy gothic romance graphic novel that I have ever read. Sure it hasn't had much competition in that category, but Willowweep manor has deep deadpan humor, Garrity is at her enthusiastically nerdy best here, and Baldwin's art is both more cartoonish than his work in Little Dee and SpaceTrawler and also captures the irony and humor of the story so well.

At first, she loves the clothes and the castle, but things aren't exactly as they seem. The characters are a little two dimensional, and there's a manor ghost only Haley can see, and an evil force called The Bile is creeping its way across Willowweep! As the lone outsider, it's up to Haley and her newfound friends to save the world of Willowweep and inspire a new story. I loved the artwork and how jam-packed the book is with humor and genre tropes. It's a gothic lovers sci-fi spinoff. And the clothes ARE great. And so are the characters, with three ridiculously cliché brothers you can't help but adore. But watch out for the bunnies with glowing eyes! Find this book and other titles within our catalog. ~Jess, Youth Services

    As promised by the marketing, this is a satirical and meta take on the gothic romance novel (plus sci-fi alternate universe shenanigans!). I think the worldbuilding is the best part (really glad they didn’t go with the “and it was all a dream” route) but I wasn’t in love with the humor. Don’t get me wrong, some of it did make me smile. But the jokes got a bit repetitive by the middle and I became less enthused.

    It has been a very long time since any book has made me literally laugh out loud as many times as this witty, hilarious sendup of gothic romance novels.

They all manage to be perfectly on-point for Gothic tropes while also being adorably unique and themselves - and I particularly loved Garrity's twist on the traditional Gothic housekeeper! The artwork (by Christopher Baldwin) adds a whole extra level of hilarity through so many fabulous wordless moments. I raced through this book like a delicious slice of chocolate cake - and I already know I'll be re-reading it many times in the future!

    A farcical tweaking of gothic romance and steampunk that amused me with its nonsense and silliness. Amongst the many characters who become endearing despite their annoying personalities, the housekeeper is one to watch. It sort of reminded me of Don Rosa's Uncle Scrooge books in looks and tone.

    ARC provided by Young Adult Books Central Haley is so obsessed with Gothic novels that her language arts teacher has to tell her she can't do a book project on yet another one, bemoaning the fact that Haley can't be like the other girls and like sexy vampires.

Disappointed, Haley is traveling home on a dark and stormy night ( in a long skirt, waistcoast, blouse, and Chuck Taylors) and hears someone calling for help from the water. She jumps from a bridge to rescue him, but the next thing she knows, she is waking up in a stereotypically creepy, Gothic mansion, complete with sarcastic, frumpy maid, three disparate brothers, Montague, Laurence, and Cuthbert and a mystery to solve. In addition to a hermitage, catacombs, and resident ghost, there is also a Doomsday like contraption in the basement. In a science fiction twist, the manor is the location of a portal to a gasket universe. Montague even gives Haley the instruction manual (a comic version with a perky spokesgirl reminiscent of 1950s commercials), but it is little use against the evil, possessed friar and hordes of Bile ridden bunnies. Will Haley's modern skills combine with her love of the Gothic world be able to combine and save the day? Perhaps there are a lot of high school students well versed in the world of Daphne du Maurier and Jane Austen who will understand the dextrous use of Gothic tropes in this graphic novel, because this is certainly a tour de force of turning those tropes on their ears. I was particularly fond of the embittered servant woman who wanders the moors (where it rains once a day and twice on Sunday) to wail for her lost love, and Cuthbert, who throws himself into everything with a dimwitted fervor that highlights his Snidely Whiplash appearance. The illustrations are attractive, and Baldwin's background with Bruno and Spacetrawler both help to give a realistic feel to both the introspective, Gothic world and the science fiction one. The pallette is largely gray and brown, reflecting the Gothic gloom, but there are also some nice, sunny days outside of the manor. This is a quirky, Young Adult graphic novel that will find fans among the readers of other odd harmonic convergences such as Lumberjanes, although the people who might like it best might be middle aged high school language arts teachers and librarians who were thwarted in their quests to write a PhD thesis on the application of Austen's archetypes to moden psychology, but they will certainly promote this novel to their students! Perhaps for the next book Haley will get sucked into the world of her next assignment for class, "Hemingway whether you like it or not"!

While she's convinced, at first, it's her gothic romance dreams come true, things take a slightly different twist. Soon, she's not only dealing with rifts through the universe but an evil, which she has no clue how she can defeat. Although I read the blurb, this read still was anything but expected. Haley is a wonderful character—overly dramatic, a true dreamer, and yet, a carries a bit of bite when needed. Her 'over-the-top' way of seeing life is endearing and funny, especially when the other characters flow in totally different directions of their own. Every one is ridiculous, and still, it's hard not to cheer for them the entire way through. The illustrations are well done and make the tale very easy to follow. They add all the drama and settings needed to make this novel work. They allow the extreme moments and humor to wiggle its way into the drama nicely. I enjoyed flipping through these. This is an odd tale and did make me raise an eyebrow more than a few times. So, don't expect normal because this is not it. The science fiction additions twist the satire in very original directions...and yet, it's addictive. Even when I really wondered about several twists, I didn't want to put this one down because I was curious what would happen next. I received an ARC copy.

    This is a really fun send-up of Gothic tropes, complete with the Foreboding Housekeeper, the Feckless Heir, the Brooding Lord of the Manor, and—of course—the Gothic Heroine. I enjoyed the art style, and both the plot and characters were a lot of fun. Highly recommended, and it was a perfect autumn read!

    Willowweep Manor is a funny little tale that pokes at melodramatic story tropes and doesn’t take itself too seriously, reminding us that we are more than just our labels and that we can be whatever kind of hero we choose.

This all comes in very handy when she is transported to an alternate universe that is basically a gothic romance come to life. I loved everything about Haley, especially her sheer delight at everything she finds in this strange new universe. She comes to learn that the place she’s found herself is really a protective barrier between her own (our actual) universe and an evil bile universe that would contaminate her world if it had the chance. Unfortunately, not only is there a leak, but a bile creature disguised as a villainous monk is on the loose. Lots of crazy adventures ensue as she uses everything she knows about the rules of gothic romance to try to save the world—and then she throws those rules out completely to do things her own way. From the crazed zombie bunnies to the overdramatic gothic poetry, this graphic novel is full of zaniness that made me laugh again and again. I loved every minute of the adventure! Oh, and I absolutely loved the art style as well—every page was a surprise! ***Disclosure: I received these books from the publisher for review purposes.

The manse and its surroundings rearrange themselves, seemingly at random, due to a crucial device going “out of alignment.” [**removed spoiler**] The stakes are high and the brothers (especially Montague, the dreamy middle brother) need the help of an outsider with a particular set of skills. Lucky for them, Haley is plucky, confident, and a genuine heroine-in-waiting!

    This is the story of Haley who is obsessed with gothic romance. So when she sees a man in the river she thinks it is her time to shine. Now she is in a strange new universe trying to save it from an all consuming evil. Several of the panels had a light source and it looked so good that you expected the pages to be warm to the touch.

The main character is Black and there's some lesbian smoochin', both of which made me a very happy reader. My one missing star is mostly because I didn't love the art, but my quibles are minor. I'm planning to pass this on to a friend's daughter who loves ya graphic novels. I hope she likes it as much as I did, even if she has no idea who Jane Eyre or Heathcliff are.

    I didn't think I'd like this as much as I did, but I couldn't stop laughing at both the story and the art in this graphic novel. I loved the author's sense of humor and the artist's way of showing that through the characters. This story is super cute even if you're not a fan of/aware of gothic romance novels (a large contextual part of the plot), but if you are it's even funnier. The sci-fi aspects of the setting are well-constructed, but its the humor that makes this one what it is.

    If you need a hilarious escape, this is the pick. It’s a wonderfully illustrated graphic novel about a girl obsessed with gothic novels that gets transported into another dimension that is literally a gothic novel—complete with a castle, brooding brothers, and a creepy housekeeper. I started laughing at page 3 with the mention of Sonic the Hedgehog fanfiction and never stopped.

Especially with the main character being a major reader. Then she falls into an alternate world where she gets to be a hero. Plus the brothers she met there were cool in their own ways. I really like that they allowed the one cracked to stay open so they could still each other.
