Author of Little Moments of Love, Snug, and In Love & Pajamas, Catana Chetwynd imparts her relationship wisdom once again with her latest collection of comics. This time, she explores the momentous steps of a relationship––whether it be moving in together, the reality of facing time apart, or even officially committing to one another––all while shining a light on the joy those moments can offer. Catana’s unmistakable illustration and writing styles make even the most mundane tasks, like mowing the lawn or deciding whose turn it is to cook dinner, seem charming. Her relatable content is elevated in a fresh and humorous way that only Catana’s comics can do.

A lovely collection of comics. Centered around the author's relationship, the comics touch the everyday moments is a sweet, relatable, and honest look at every day life.
There were quite a few pages that I laughed out loud at and was ready to bookmark and share!
While I have read the artists other books, and follow her on instagram, none of that is necessary to enjoy this quick read - who doesn't want a book filled with sunshine to page through?
There are two authors whose comic strips make me feel, yeah, let’s say it and be done with the pun, at home: Sarah Andersen and Catana Chetwynd. The pages command a feeling of belonging, of wanting to share them and say “See? We do the same!” that makes them small treasures I go back to whenever I feel I need a book hug.
I discovered Catana Chetwynd with In Love & Pajamas, probably tempted by the title. Then I loved Snug and then Little Moments of Love, so when I saw You Are Home in Netgalley I think I just nodded, (yes, I definitely felt at home, we made that clear in the very first sentence of this review) and clicked faster than ever.
Let me digress a little: I usually read horror books, those that make you uneasy and even turn your stomach, I read about psychopaths and terrible monsters in haunted houses, so for me, books like this, like You Are Home, are like the perfect oasis; I Just stop, read, laugh, laugh a little bit more, show them to my partner, laugh together, read, read, get sad when it is over much sooner than what you expected (because you have been reading non-stop since you got your hands on it, you thirsty devourer of books!) and breath, because yeah, we all think we are special and that we do things that only we could understand, but then, suddenly, you see it in a page with the cutest characters ever and it kind of makes you even more special, because your rarity was worthy enough to have its own comic strip.
So yeah, five out of five. Home, indeed.
Always a lot of fun! I'm a huge fan of Chetwynd since her beginning. I always relate to her plate and laugh reading those. Perfect book to read one or two page at random every day!
I see this artist on my social media feeds from time to time and have always loved their little comics. I am absolutely delighted I have the chance to review this book before its published! Thank you so much!
This book is a bundle of heartwarming lovely comics about a healthy relationship. They were cute, relatable - I absolutely send half of them to my boyfriend because they reminded me of him - and so wholesome.
I absolutely recommend this as a fun happy read and as perfect material to send to your SO in the memefilled messenger chats - even if you are sitting on the same couch.
