Sarah Andersen’s hugely popular, world-famous Sarah’s Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals.

In addition to the most recent Sarah’s Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah’s real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh’s Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson’s Let’s Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah’s Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.

REVIEW

A copy was given to me via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Rating: ★★★★★

This is my first time reviewing a comic book so I’m going to do it based on how much I enjoyed it. And I enjoyed this A LOT.

I’ve been a follower of the author, Sarah Anderson on Instagram for quite a while now. If you’re a fan of the author or have previously liked some of her works across various social media platforms, you will definitely love this book.

What I liked about this is that it was able to present relatable situations in a really cute and funny way.

I went through this without effort. It’s a book that you can read in one sitting and something that’s worth reading all over again.

Especially when you’re feeling like this.

The best part of this book was the second half, where personal essays by the author were added along with the illustrations. It made this book a lot more personal and it felt like you’re reading stories from a friend.

I personally think this is a book that would make a great gift or a nice addition to your collection. I am definitely looking forward to Sarah Andersen’s work in the future.
