Big Mushy Happy Lump
Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

Last year I read Adulthood Is A Myth, which was my introduction to Sarah Andersen, but it almost felt like being old friends, as a lot of her short comics were so relatable.

So, when I came across Big Mushy Happy Lump, my expectations were quite high, but I need not to worry, because it was as nice as the first one. I think the comics are very relatable to a lot of people, but besides the way they are drawn is also helping making these so popular, is my guess.

Much of what I said in my review of Adulthood Is A Myth still stands, and I'm pretty sure that if you enjoyed that one, you'll like Big Mushy Happy Lump as well.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Big Mushy Happy Lump
Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

Author:  Sarah Anderson

Rating: 4 Happy stars

 

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. The opinion that I loved it!  is purely my own.

 

Like I said -  I loved this! Reading it just made me happy. How often does that happen?

 

Andersen perfectly captures the feelings of an introvert. Being an introvert myself, I felt a strong connection to what I was reading. My favorite part of this book was when she explained how she fell in love with her cat after admitting she never liked cats. It reminded me of how I used to feel about dogs  - until I got one. 

 

If you need to smile, I definitely recommend this book.

Big Mushy Happy Lump: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

(I received a copy of this book through NetGalley).

A little disappointing, compared to the first book, which I really liked. Although it was still spot on in many ways, it didn't feel as funny—perhaps because of the choice of panels this time, or perhaps because some of those were already present in volume 1, so I admit I didn't really see the point in including them again here. I was also expecting more 'summer-related' panels, owing to the blurb. Maybe the blurb was ill-chosen?

As mentioned above, it's still pretty accurate regarding many aspects of life (cats! And cats on Instagram!). But it's much too repetitive.

Conclusion: Only buy it if you never checked the author's website and haven't read book 1.

Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen
Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

This was basically a series of unrelated comic strips, each depicting a scenario that affects us, with an inclination towards those of us struggling with varying levels of anxiety.

 

I read this (if you can really call it reading) on the train to Dublin and it helped take my mind off my anxiety about the trip, so I’ll always be grateful to it for that.

 

There isn’t too much to say about this apart from the best aspect, for me, was the reassurance it gave me that the things I think are more common than I realise. For example, I feel safer when my cat’s sitting on my bed and I thought this was really weird, but one of the drawings was about exactly that. It made a joke of it but the main thing is that now I don’t feel so weird. Result!

 

There’ a second book out this years and I can’t wait for it to come out. Such a light-heared, calming little book.

Reading progress update: I've read 40%.
Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection - Sarah Andersen

I live in the North of Ireland and today I'm going to Dublin for a gig. I'm an anxious traveller so I'm going to read this graphic novel on the way. It's so cute and bloody hilarious. I've had a great run of books recently.
