ebook review: Adulthood is a Myth

Are you a special snowflake? Do you love networking to advance your career? Have you never wasted a fresh new day surfing the internet? Ugh. This book is not for you. Please go away.

Sarah's Scribbles — casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen — confront head-on the horrors, anxiety, and awkwardness of modern adult life. From the agony of holding hands with a gorgeous guy to the yawning pit of hell that is the wifi gone down to the eye-watering pain of eating too-hot pizza because one cannot stand to wait for it to cool down, Sarah fearlessly documents it all.

Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's total frankness on extremely personal issues such as body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and consistently hilarious.

My Review:
I related to this book of comics So. Much. From inconsistent dress sizes to the possibility I will be the grandma that has a million notebooks with only three pages filled in them. I almost feel spied on. I have to admit I was kind of hesitant to request this book because I have seen these comics around on Facebook and Tumblr. The same thing happened with Heart and Brain, and I didn't feel like the book was worth buying. But this book of comics about a brand new adult girl who's a book loving introvert really wormed it's way into my heart and I want the physical copy so bad! This book will make an amazing gift for millennial girls, or late-teen aged girls, or bookworms, or introverts...haven't gotten a guy's opinion on this yet but if you can't think of anyone to gift this to, I am always here. As in, buy it for me. Even though I'll be buying my own copy. I just really love this book because it's like the introverted friend I've never had because...well...socializing isn't my strong suit.

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

PS-- Not sure if this book will be for you? Go to the author's website for samples, or look at the comic below and ask yourself if you can relate.
