Sarah's Scribbles, Goodreads Choice Award for 2016: Best Graphic Novels & Comics

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.

If anything, I enjoyed this clever volume even more than Andersen's previous collection, 'Adulthood Is a Myth.' Again, a number of panels spoke to my own personality quirks, which was by turns amusing and unsettling.

I really like Sarah's Scribbles, but this time, I felt too much of the book was dedicated to one story, one that I didn't relate all that much with and so half the book felt wasted... Aside from that, the same old great humour and relatability :)

Realistic humour is the best. I am buying the two books by this author and she'd better hurry up and find some more real life to illustrate. No matter your age as a woman, you will find something in here to laugh about, even if it's a socially suppressed subject. I absolutely loved the frame of the ovaries reminding Sarah to pack their items in the vacation suitcase along with all her lovely beach clothes! I mean really - tell it like it is, honey! We always have these situations but no one can make us laugh about it like she can!

Relatable, heartfelt and funny - made me exclaim "I'm not the only one!" Demonstrates the sometimes difficult realities of life through clever, heartfelt illustrations. Definitely worth a read.

Sarah Andersen's work is both hilarious and packed with so much truth you'll be amazed.

Sarah Andersen has the ability to relate to us all -- twenty-somethings, women, the socially anxious, the lazy, etc. It is amazing, her skills are so simple but hilarious and create such empathy. I am so happy this exists and that I have the chance to read her work.
