"The next hot ticket could be British artist Philippa Rice, whose marvelously inventive blogs My Cardboard Life and Soppy have won her fans across the world."
 --Anna Baddeley, The Observer

 The wildly popular web comic SOPPY--with more than half a million notes on Tumblr--is the illustrated love story of author Philippa Rice and her real-life boyfriend. True love isn't always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it's about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.

SOPPY is Philippa Rice's collection of comics and illustrations based on real-life moments with her boyfriend. From grocery shopping to silly arguments and snuggling in front of the television, SOPPY captures the universal experience of sharing a life together, and celebrates the beauty of finding romance all around us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful and heartwarming I read this book while I took a nice bath and finished it within 10-15 minutes. The comics and pictures are very sweet and reminds me a lot of the relationship my boyfriend and I have. Very quick read but so worth it, ever page was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWWWWW. IT'S SO LOVELY. I found some of Rice's webcomics online and squealed because they filled me with warmth and then my boyfriend surprised me with the physical book for Valentines day! This is beautiful because it's about mundane, every day moments that show real love between two people. It's about a couple that has just moved in together and about little sparks that happen in their new life together. It made me want to hug everything. You should read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Every page of this book is almost unbearably sweet. I'm sure everyone in a long-term relationship will find at least one comic that makes you go "Hey, that's me!". I hope Philippa Rice puts out another book just like this, I can't get enough.
