Goodreads Synopsis:

Sarah valiantly struggles with waking up in the morning, being productive, and dealing with social situations. Sarah’s Scribbles is the comic strip that follows her life, finding humor in living as an adulting introvert that is at times weird, awkward, and embarrassing.


This is another great collection from Sarah Andersen. The best part about her comics is that they are so relatable.

There were a lot of pet comics in this book. One of my favourites was where a cat doesn’t know her name because she is called so many nicknames at home, such as “mush,” “kitten pie,” and “little beanie toe cutie.”

There were also a lot of comics about the struggles of being an artist. My favourite one was where artists are compared to actors and musicians. Both actors and musicians become more glamorous when they become famous, but artists are still at home, sitting at their computers.

This collection ended with some commentary about becoming an artist. Sarah talks about how the internet has changed and become more negative since she began her career, but it’s still an important tool for young artists. My favourite part was when she said that you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. If you wouldn’t say it to someone else about their work, don’t say it to yourself.

This collection was entertaining and inspiring.
