WOW (2): Adulthood is a Myth, A Sarah's Scribbles Collection by Sarah Andersen

Waiting On Wednesday (WOW) is a weekly event or bookish meme, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that readers and bloggers are eagerly anticipating and patiently waiting for.

This week, I am so pleased to share a book that I have been wanting to read since the moment I knew there was book about it. It is a collection of short sketches or scribbles (comic-style) by Sarah Andersen about the true to life accounts of awkward situations we often get ourselves stuck in.

Adulthood is a Myth: A "Sarah's Scribbles" Collection
Author: Sarah Andersen
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Expected Publication: March 8, 2016


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.
To give you a taste of what's inside this quirky book, here's a tweet from the author/artist herself. You've probably seen this circling social media websites by now.

What do you think? Have you heard or seen this book around?
