I don't have cats but a lot of these comics are relatable and made me laugh out loud.

Very funny takes on modern life living with anxiety and cats. Happy to find there are several titles in this series!

This short cartoon book is pretty much the same as the last two, but feels a bit less focused. Sarah closes this book with a few short personal essays that deliver some simple advice directed at young artists to not get hung up on internet trolls and "just make things." I appreciated the humor but found the advice section generic and uninspiring.

Charming, relatable, and delightfully funny comics depicting self-doubt, procrastination, love of animals. You know, adult things.

Albeit a short read, it was filled with a bevy of pets, anxiety, and the emotions of an artist.

It was very humorous, but don't miss the message of kindness and supporting others in their endeavors.

Loved it!

Another fantastic volume of hilarious and scarily accurate depictions of life and anxiety.

A very slight book. I find her drawings childish, and not very funny or poignant. I found the second half, about Internet use, interesting, but think she mishandled the difference between criticism and personal attack.

I have enjoyed all the Sarah's Scribbles books however this was my least favourite. The book holds all the usual humor, charm and apt depiction of early adulthood. What I didn't enjoy was that a third of the book is text, not comics, of her just talking about how people on the internet can be mean and how challenging that can be on an artist. This is sound and helpful advice to other aspiring artists but the final third of the book felt like a quickly written Instagram rant instead of a well curated published work.

I can relate to her.

As usual, Andersen's comics are poignant, so true they almost hurts and so hilarious. Another great collection.
