Swimsuit season is coming up! Better get beach-body ready! Work on those abs! Lift those butts!
…Um, or how about never mind to all that and just be a lump. Big Mushy Happy Lump!
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.
This book is about the daily life of a young woman.
I already knew the author but I hadn’t read any complete graphic novels, just some strips here and there.
It’s a really funny book and I recommend it but my problem with this book was that there wasn’t much I hadn’t seen before. Turns out the strips I saw here and there were the majority of the book.
If you don’t want to buy this book (which I understand) just check out the author’s social media pages, such as Twitter, she posts some strips there.
