[REVIEW] Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles #3) by Sarah Andersen
Herding Cats - Sarah Andersen

I feel like I'm a broken record when it comes to Sarah Andersen's art. I feel it speaks to me in so many ways. With finals being due next week and stress at an all-time high, I was glad the library had this ready for pick up. It's super fun and super real. I loved the last section where she speaks of being a creative person in this hellscape that is the internet. She gives tips that I found so valuable I had to give it to read to a friend.

 

Overall, a great, funny and relatable read.

Book Review: Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles #3) By Sarah Andersen
Herding Cats - Sarah Andersen

 

* I received an eARC of this book from NetGalley.

This series has won me over ever since I learned of its existence and actively decided to read it. The first half reads like comic strips. Most hit close to home and become even more entertaining and existential life crisis inducing the more time you take to think about them.

The second half was my favorite because it melds the comics and drawings to a full dissertation/text/story (?). I loved the message the author presented in that part of the book. The internet can be a negative place and that may provoke anxiety when it comes to sharing your passion with complete strangers online. All you can do is take a chance and try to work with it. When things become too much, take a much-needed break and de-stress. Everyone has been through things that they thought they'd never get through, but you're still here so you can also get through this obstacle too.

Herding Cats - Sarah Andersen

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

The third book by Sarah Andersen, collecting all her newest works + more! I was delighted when I spotted this book over on Netgalley. The covers and titles are getting better (and sillier) with each and every book. I can’t wait to see what the next title/cover will be.:P

Like with each book so far I haven’t found a comic I haven’t read, well, maybe one or two, as I sometimes don’t see her new comic on my timeline on Twitter. But do I mind? Nah, I don’t. I just adore that I can re-read them without having to go through her Twitter.

This time not so much menstrual cycles and more anxiety and sadness. They all hit quite close home for me. :( One that also stood out was the stove comic. When I saw it on her Twitter, I had the same reaction. I was both sad and happy. Sad, because it sucks that there are more people who have this problem and it is not a fun one. Happy, because I know now that there are more people like me. That I am not alone with this behaviour.

After the normal comics we get an extra part. She tells us with text and comics about art, about drawing, about criticism on the internet, anxiety over drawing/posting something, and more. I definitely love that this was added. I am not adding art to the internet, but some of the parts (internet and harassment/criticism) hit quite close to me.

All in all, definitely recommended. Be warned this may hit close home. You may experience a ton of feelings and nod along with the comics. Of course you will also laugh as there are enough moments were the comics are more comedy (like the ones with her cat).

[REVIEW] Big Mushy Happy Lump by Sarah Andersen
Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

Another library book. Whee!

Not gonna lie, I feel a little guilty that most of the books I've read this year so far are comics. Then I remember that I'm a graduate student and I have no life so I gotta make do with what I've got.

I love how relatable Ms. Andersen's art is. I also love that in this volume the comics were interspersed with stories of her social anxiety and her sweater thieving. Can't wait to read the next one!

[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.
