Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen
Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen
Herding Cats - Sarah Andersen

Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen marks the beginning of her illustrated web comic being released in book format. Andersen's art is full of humor about her day-to-day life as a single lady who'd rather stay at home than socialize. [A/N: If you're not into jokes about menstruation then this isn't the book for you.] A lot of her jokes focus on how she doesn't want kids, in general doesn't like people, and prefers to stay at home to eat and sleep. (Some of these things seem eerily familiar to me...) Her art style is quite cartoon-y and definitely keeps the feel of her beginnings as an Internet comics artist (in the best way possible).

 

Good ol' menstrual humor featuring my legs.

 

Who among us hasn't done this?

 

 

Her sequel, Big Mushy Happy Lump, showcases relatable female humor at its best. She really leans into the jokes examining her introverted/socially awkward personality traits. She added an end section to this book where she talks directly to the reader about how she feels/acts in social situations. She also discusses at length why she's a sweater thief forever and always. It's really cute and I think it's a great way to connect more with her audience. 

 

I think you get why I took a picture of this one.

I didn't choose this life. This life chose me.

 

And finally there's Andersen's Herding Cats which (surprise surprise) features a lot of cat comics. In Big Mushy Happy Lump Sarah talks about how she has never been a 'pet' person but after she cat-sit for her mom this completely changed and this book examines her obsession with all things feline. This book has a phenomenal end section about navigating the Internet as an artist. Biggest takeaway: Keep making art. 

 

I laugh every time I see this.

 

That last one is how I feel during storytime at work.

If anyone were to ask me about my life this book would be a great approximation.

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I have essentially been reading this series backwards, because clearly I am a functioning adult. I read Herding Cats first (and loved it!) and then Big Mushy Happy Lump (and also loved it). And then I read this one. I have a problem with reading series out of order apparently. 

Anyway, I can definitely tell that this is an older collection. It was very good. Funny and relatable. But not as... I'm not even sure how to describe it. Not as adult? Well-rounded? I don't know. One of the things I really liked about the later two books is that they are funny, but also have their serious moments. They bring up bullies, trolls, working on the self, etc. There is a good balance. This one is mostly just fun, which there is nothing wrong with. The other two books are just a little more mature and I liked them a tiny bit more. Still a very good book and I am glad I read it. It really brought me back to my undergrad days (and hopefully my upcoming grad school days- fingers crossed I get accepted).

Overall, great collection of comics that are very funny and easy to relate to.

[REVIEW] Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

I got my first library card ever yesterday, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I started borrowing e-books left and right.

 

I love Sarah Andersen's comics, and this is the first time I had the chance to sit down and read them in one sitting. The book is short, but I still found myself laughing out loud many times. As an introverted bookworm, her comics are extremely funny and relatable to me. The art is cute and funny. I can't wait to read the rest of her work.
