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 Thoughts:

Before any thing else, have you seen this scribbles? This is what made me want to grab this book and devour its greatness. Thankfully, Netgalley has the book available to read before it was released to the whole world.

Adulthood is a Myth is basically a collection of spot on scribbles of awkward yet true-to-life situations that most of us (if not all) experienced once or twice (or many times) in our life. It is a very entertaining book, and will have you leafing through the pages in one sitting. Once you reach the last page, you'll be wanting and begging for more, because it's that fun! 

As I was reading and looking through the cute and quirky drawings of Sarah Andersen, I can't help but smile at some of the frames that I really felt was "so me". I am probably not the only one, because I've read quite a number of reviews saying that this book describes their life so well, that Sarah Andersen is their spirit animal, or something like that.

So, if you want something to refresh your mind for a bit, or you need a little break from all the complicated drama, the never ending conflicts or the extremely out of this world plots of fiction books, or you simply want yourself entertained, grab Adulthood is a Myth now! It's out now!
