about

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.
Sarah Andersen is a young cartoonist and illustrator who lives in Brooklyn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super relatable I purchased her other book as well and in both these books you can't help but giggle at how relatable her comics are. Chances are you can flip to a random page and go "yup... that's me". I finished both her books on the day of purchase but i'll definitely revisit them if I'm having a bad day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Funny & Adorable One of the best books I've ever bought for myself. I follow her on Instagram and it brightens my day every time I see her posts. Highly recommend not only this one but her other book as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My spirit animal in a comic form I relate so much to this character. It portrays your inner monologue in many situations. Worth every penny and I will continue to support this author!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Way to Laugh at Your Problems! I love Sarah's comics. They're soo relatable. It's like someone observed me and decided to make a comic out of it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Even better than the First Book I actually liked this better than the previous book which either means Sarah is getting better with time OR I am getting used to her humour/observational viewpoint more. As with the last book Sarah's unique POV on the world means she brings a unique voice to the humour of the world around her. She has a great way of condensing a truth about the world - or herself - into a simple cartoon. Unfortunately, I did not laugh out loud once - so I can't join the other reviewers in declaring this book "hilarious". My fav part of the book was actually at the end when she told a longer narrative about herself (how her anxiety affects her, how she came to love cats). I wasn't sold on her after her first book but I am growing to like her. My young daughters are actually the huge fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarah did it again! I love this comic so much. I read the first Sarah's Scribbles book and this one back to back, and it was so interesting to see how her drawing style had evolved in such a short time, while maintaining the same supremely relatable messages and humour. Also, the book cover is fuzzy! I wasn't expecting it at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Just as funny, relatable and honest as Sarah Andersen's first book. It was a great, but fast read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I couldn't keep a straight face while reading this if you paid me. Sarah's work is so relatable and so endearing. Though many of these are already posted on her social media outlets, it's nice to own them all gathered together so I can grab this off the shelf when I'm having a bad day and turn things around. Absolutely love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Relatable I didn't find this book to be quite as funny as her first however it most certainly still had me laughing out loud and saying "me"! Her drawings are hilarious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I received this as an ebook and I’m so curious if this will have that same velour fuzzy stuff on the cover that the first novel had. That stuff was the best. Much like the first comic book of Sarah’s Scribbles, I feel like all introverts need to read this. Sarah Andersen is so relatable it’s mind-blowing. Even things that don’t have to do with being introvert or having social anxiety were relatable to me. Like how she always steals her boyfriend’s clothes (hmm big sweaters) and the panel that describes all the alternative things a boyfriend brings to the relationship (I checked off each one). It feels like Sarah Andersen knows you personally, which makes me happy because it reminds me that even if I often feel alone in this world there are many people who do think/act like me. Even though there were a few panels that were very similar to previous ones I felt like the entire book was more inspiring than the last. I loved all of the female friendship positivity. And I might be an outlier here but I think I like this one better than her first book. Maybe just marginally as I gave them both 5 stars. Sarah you can do no wrong! P.S. I would also like to know how some girls have beautiful hair after four days of not washing. I’m definitely the second-day = gross hair type person. No amount of dry shampoo can tame these locks.

Editorial Reviews

"You've probably seen Sarah Andersen's comics ... and you probably feel like Sarah Andersen has the uncanny ability to read your mind and then draw doodles of all your anxieties.  Either way, her comics are adorably awkward, and Big Mushy Happy Lump is a delightful collection ..." (Bustle)
