    of the TWENTY-SEVEN books i'd read in the GR awards semifinals, this is the only one that won in its category. so congratulations, even though i don't consider this a graphic novel as such, more like a collection of unrelated cartoons better placed in the humor category, but who's gonn...

    If you think you are exceptional, a magical person, someone whose heart is pure, and thus can do no wrong; if you have lived a life filled with success, self-confidence, good skin, clean rooms, an excellent wardrobe, top-notch grooming, and a positive outlook; if you are a person ...

    Judging by the reviews, many, many readers see themselves in Sarah?s work. I completely understand, because I do too. After seeing a friend?s glowing review (thanks, Amy[Other Amy]!), I had to give this a try. As a lifelong bookworm and introvert, I recognized many of my ex...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life. It has been ages since I picked up a book of comic strips. I saw a couple of positive remarks about this book and grabbed it immediately. Once I started reading these comics, I couldn't put the book down. I had never seen the Sa...

    I am extremely tired of the word "relatable"... BUT BOY IF THERE EVER WAS A MOMEMT FOR IT! This collection of webcomics had me actually laughing out loud, had me saying "YES!", had me pointing out page after page to my boyfriend. It's silly and cute, but also deeply truthful to ...

    This whole book is my spirit animal. Side effects may include extreme nasal pain from snorting liquids up your nose while laughing or embarrassment from snorting very loudly in public. ARC provided by Netgalley ...

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that if you are socially awkward, you're going to feel identified with this book. Sarah Andersen captures in simple and funny comics, the essence of being awkard and what growing up is all about... ...avoiding old classmates! ...

    An utterly charming collection of simple cartoons which illuminate some of life's undeniable truths. For example, thinking about putting on your pajamas all day and then the joy of actually doing so. Or considering being productive but then laying around on the couch in a stupor....

    Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Does the following image remind you of yourself???? If so, this is probably a book for you. While I?m 1,000 maybe not exactly the target demographic for the Sarah?s Scribbles collection, I still found Adultho...

    Oh this was just glorious. All bookworms and introverts NEED to read this. NEEEEED, I TELL YOU. I was just about laughing my head off in companionable fear with the author over adulthood. Adulthood is a myth. And also just ugh. I would happily sign up for a refund, okay? Ahem. So t...

    This is soo me! Creepy, creepy! I think she is a stalker! Or somehow she lives the same life like me... Someone stop that. Please! I really liked this one. Maybe because I was not very familiar with Sarah's Scribbles before reading this one, however, after this, I'll definitely fol...

    Adulthood really is a myth! And I read this book while enjoying a Milka & Oreo chocolate. Sarah Andersen does a great job at showing the hardships of girls and women while keeping it light and funny. It's amazing how easy I could relate to her drawings. I kept showing some of ...

    This was so cute and fun! I read it in one sitting and laughed out loud several times, and I definitely took a picture of a few of these comics to send to friends or post on snapchat. As an anxious bookworm, I really connected with parts of it. The only thing I'm not fond of is ther...

    There were so many things I related to in this book but I'm only going to share a few. ? Okay, so I'm going to show y'all pictures of SOME of my stuffed animals that take over my bed (I sleep on the couch anyway) and some of my dog, Lucy's stuffed animals. WE BELIEVE IN T...

    Awkwardly relatable, comical, and quirky! These simple scribbles by Sarah Andersen are a precious gift for the socially awkward, eccentric introverts, and voracious bookworms! If by any chance, you're all of the above, then congratulations *throws confetti*, this collection is made ...

    Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away. I was writing down some thoughts for two reviews, one of a Mishima book and the other of The Bell Jar, but at the moment, I don?t feel like dedicating so much time to that kind of in...

    My Rating: 5 blazing stars! This is the first graphic novel I have ever read. I have always thought comics and graphic novels are for kids - with all the pictures and just one to two sentences and bubble texts. How wrong I was! (Yeah yeah, I accept. Don't give me those nasty l...

    I wasn't expecting these scribbles to be as funny and as relatable as they were. Did anyone else read this and reinforce in themselves the notion that it is okay to still be childish? Adulthood really is a myth. I don't know why as kids we bought into the idea that being an adult i...

    Have you ever been in that kind of situation where you felt too awkward or embarrassed and all you wanted is to be buried alive? That feeling when you are the only one in your kind, the rare of the group or the "different one"? Are you reading this as if you with that old classy commer...

    ? AVAILABLE NOW! ? THANK YOU, Sarah Andersen. I mean it. See, it seems to me lately that everyone around me has some variation of "You are an adult, you must-" sentence ready to throw it on me. Real adults don?t read that much because when are you going to take...

    I am veeeerry behind on learning about Sarah Andersen's work. I've seen her comics floating around on social media for years, laughed at them, wondered how such simplistic drawings could be so relatable, and then moved on without giving it so much as a second thought. Then I stumbl...

    I'm stunned. Flabbergasted. This cartoonish scribble has won the Goodreads Choice Award for Graphic Novel/Comic in 2016. Really? There's no artistry, and there's no story. It's not even funny. In my (minority) opinion it's a disgrace for the genre and an insult to serious artists. ...

    This was my first read of graphical book. Most importantly my first hilarious read. Even though I couldn't laugh that much because the things illustrated in the book are totally relatable. Author, Ironically, illustrated the facts of our life. These are those things which everybo...
