Do you love networking to advance your career? Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away.


These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.

Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

This was really good. Funny and weird and kind of quirky.

This is so quirky and cute and perfect and brilliant and I swear she based it on my life. I saw myself in practically all of these comics. They had me literally laughing out loud throughout the entire thing. Sarah Andersen is brilliant and I cannot wait for another publication from her. I will buy it instantly. Probably I could flail all day about this book.

Four and a half stars! I have long been a fan of Sarah Andersen’s comics. The way the capture the constant anxiety ridden insecurities of a young adult woman has me pointing at each strip screaming, “That’s so me!” It’s no different with Adulthood is a Myth. Filled with well known favourites, the book also contains new gems. Every single comic brings a smile, if not an outright fit of laughter. Just a few pages in, I already found myself texting various friends praising the book and wanting to send them little snapshots of comics. There is something deeply comforting in these relatable little comics, knowing you aren’t alone in the vastness of the world, that not everyone worries about having their legs perfectly smooth for the beach, or wants children, or worries about a sure thing being a sure thing. You may not relate to every single comic, but they will remind you of friends and acquaintances. Definitely an amazingly fun read, I wholeheartedly recommend buying it for yourself, or for any of the ladies in your life (most especially younger ladies around 11-14 who are likely feeling that rush of insecurity that comes with the age). // I received this title for free in exchange for an honest review //

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 Sarah Scribbles character before and was really excited to see what this was all about. I was surprised by how much I was able to related to this funny little book of comics. There were entries about books, being an introvert, clothes, and all kind of little things that come up in life. Some of the comics made me glad that I am not the only one that has noticed some of these things. These were comics that I found myself constantly sharing with my husband. He likes it when I try to make reading a group sport. The artwork in this book wasn't complex but it worked well. I think that art really was perfect to illustrate this imperfect little character. I would recommend this wonderful book of comics. I think just about everyone can find something amusing in this awesome little book. I will be keeping my eye out for other Sarah Scribbles adventures. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Andrews McMeel Publishing via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.
