    of the TWENTY-SEVEN books i'd read in the GR awards semifinals, this is the only one that won in its category. so congratulations, even though i don't consider this a graphic novel as such, more like a collection of unrelated cartoons better placed in the humor category, but who's gonna split genre-hairs? although i'm pretty confident i have at least 10-15 years on this cartoonist, there's still so much in this book that resonated with me. which probably reflects very poorly on me - it's one thi of the TWENTY-SEVEN books i'd read in the GR awards semifinals, this is the only one that won in its category. so congratulations, even though i don't consider this a graphic novel as such, more like a collection of unrelated cartoons better placed in the humor category, but who's gonna split genre-hairs? although i'm pretty confident i have at least 10-15 years on this cartoonist, there's still so much in this book that resonated with me. which probably reflects very poorly on me - it's one thing to still be finding your way and retaining your childish mores in your twenties, but it's a little less cute when you're … older. there are some parts of adulthood i am very good at: paying bills on time and making sure the dishes are done and the litterbox is clean and not running out of toothpaste. but then there are some other things i just can't seem to get the hang of, mostly in the realm of social fakery, like small talk and networking and climbing that social ladder. and then there are "adult" skills i just don't see the value of adopting, like the development of an impulse control muscle that says "don't eat that whole box of cookies in one sitting," or "don't buy another stuffed animal, you old fart." and sarah andersen seems like a soulmate in those regards. we are exhausted by the same things, like slow walkers, the ease of written vs. the hell of verbal communication, and the struggle of maintaining a polite and focused attention span while inwardly experiencing social anxiety and a desire to be back in the safety of one's home-cave. i think i used to be an extrovert but then i just got so tired. i'd much rather hide out and be cozy, and while i'm a little regretful that i don't take advantage of all the fine cultural things new york has to offer, i feel a little "been there, done that," and now i'm all old and groggy. i'm no longer young and hot and new york is pretty much tailored for the young and hot. or the rich. and too often i just feel like this but this book makes me feel okay about myself. it says it's okay to have serious attachments to stuffed animals and a notebook addiction that is well-intentioned but haphazard and it stresses the importance of coziness: especially when it comes to cozy-fashion i mean, right now i am wearing doraemon poupons and a julius-monkey fleece top. like a baby. there are, of course, several comics pandering to booknerds, most notably but the biggest adult lesson i learned from this book is: wait, you're supposed to wash your bras? i do laundry once a week - i'm no scrub, but i have never ever in my life washed a bra. not even when i was a little kid living at home and someone else was doing the laundry for me. how does this even work? don't they get all misshapen and crumpled? i do not have sweaty stinky boobs, and i've never had a problem with filthy bras. so i'm going to keep living the way i been living and no one's gonna stop me. this book also highlights a lot of girl-woes that made me shout, "i know, right?" like the way the fashion industry and the lingerie industry just don't seem to be able to work together the perils of long hair and the mysterious ways of tampons other noteworthy fist-bumps from me to ms. andersen include her addressing: -the joy of giving gifts and the crippling shyness of receiving them. -the constant dwelling on stupid things one has said long after anyone else remembers them -the lack of desire to spawn -the shyness that comes off as rudeness -how long toenail polish lasts and we also both have stuffed bunnies except hers is a little more alive than mine so i'm totally down to be her big sister, if she is in the market for one of those. we can wave shyly at each other from across the room and then go back home to our respective pj's and our too-early cat alarm clocks. i'm gonna peter pan myself well into my old-age senility, when it will once more be completely age-appropriate for me to embrace what makes me comfortable over the challenges of the world of social expectations. so there. come to my blog!

    I am extremely tired of the word "relatable"... BUT BOY IF THERE EVER WAS A MOMEMT FOR IT! This collection of webcomics had me actually laughing out loud, had me saying "YES!", had me pointing out page after page to my boyfriend. It's silly and cute, but also deeply truthful to the fears and elations of people who live online. I loved it, and will definitely be picking up her second volume!

But never fear, at some point they will be replaced!!!! lol Oh, and the big ones are kinda hiding the big pile that is on the bed you can't see and there are big ones under that pile too. I love them alllllllllllllllllllll ! My dog Lucy's pile down below =) Down below ↓ I don't say my body is a temple but I do repeat over and over, you shouldn't be eating this, STOP!!!! ↑ This always happened just like the picture shows! Okay so I don't have kids and I'm not a grandma, but I do have about a million notebooks and journals that I collect and have written in like two. And only in half of the two. I can't help myself! The above picture is totally true. I never wanted kids and I don't have them and it's too late for all of that and I'm fine with it =) Okay the wifi thing is self explanatory! and the book thing, we all get that one!

Real adults don’t read that much because when are you going to take time for making babies? (really) Real women know how to cook/clean up everything without complaining (you don’t say) Real women want kids, too (back off) Real adults always wake up early (as if) Real – *internal screaming* *INTERLUDE* */INTERLUDE* The truth is, I respect all the checklists of my definition of adulthood and it’s enough for me : I take care of my loved ones, pay my bills, work my best for my pupils, respect the law, assume myself, as in, I am independent. Being an adult isn’t about fulfilling some aged fantasies in which women are sort of superheroes who raise kids, are sexy, work like hell and fucking smile all the time because HEY! LIFE’S AWESOME! Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that nobody can be happy like this - It's not me is all. I don’t feel less adult because no, I don’t spend my Sundays cleaning the house like crazy (and somehow it's still clean, mind you) I don’t feel less adult because yes sometimes I play videogames *GASP* I sure don't feel less adult because I don't have kids. I am an adult, but perhaps my definition isn’t the same as yours. Who cares? I'm sure not here to judge. Everybody needs to find his own happy place in my opinion, and I found mine, as you found yours. This book explores what adulthood is about and how frightening and confusing it can be, with all the expectations and other stereotypes which can be motivating but also so very stressful. Although I didn’t relate to every anecdote (I’ve been in a loving relationship for 7 years and am lucky enough to have a stable job), Sarah Andersen managed to capture perfectly what it means to be an “adult” nowadays while making me laugh – not to mention all these OMG I AM NOT ALONE! moments I lived along the way (I won’t say which ones. Because of reasons). As for the art, I’m not sure I like it but it definitely helps staying focused on the story related and never diminished my enjoyment during my read. ► Recommended for every lover of pajamas out there. *winks* *arc kindly provided by Andrews McMeel Publishing through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* For more of my reviews, please visit:

    Adulthood Is a Myth documents the beauty of wasting an entire weekend on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas, and wondering when, exactly, this adulthood thing begins This book was great because it made me feel lighter while reading, but ultimately it didn't do much towards building a full picture of happiness. And I probably won't remember most of the instances after putting it down.

    Adulthood really is a myth! And I read this book while enjoying a Milka & Oreo chocolate. Sarah Andersen does a great job at showing the hardships of girls and women while keeping it light and funny. It's amazing how easy I could relate to her drawings. I kept showing some of the drawings to my husband and he was impressed and could not believe someone would write about me. Especially the part about not growing up. He says that, according to Sarah Andersen, I am in my mid 20'. Anyway, I reall Adulthood really is a myth! And I read this book while enjoying a Milka & Oreo chocolate.

    Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away. I was writing down some thoughts for two reviews, one of a Mishima book and the other of The Bell Jar, but at the moment, I don’t feel like dedicating so much time to that kind of introspection, since in my case, reviewing a book is almost never writing a simple summary.

Ugh. Please go away. I was writing down some thoughts for two reviews, one of a Mishima book and the other of The Bell Jar, but at the moment, I don’t feel like dedicating so much time to that kind of introspection, since in my case, reviewing a book is almost never writing a simple summary. So I will deal with all those books next year, while focusing on other works which are also existentially complex but from a different perspective. A very different perspective. In the spirit of the preceding paragraph, I have a shocking revelation to share. I can never participate in the GR Awards. Scandalous, right? I mean, after the Best Poetry debacle, it’s still nice to be able to cast some votes considering that, in general, the most recently published book I have read might have been in the bookshop for twenty years. Another delightful fact I can find in this little adventure regarding the Best Books of 2016 that I almost never pay special attention to: the only book to which I could give my precious and humble vote was Adulthood is a Myth. The irony makes me chuckle. In any case, and in my opinion since not everyone shares my peculiar sense of humor, it was a fun read. The most hilarious, ridiculous, absurd and to some extent, pathetic aspects of life are depicted through comedy and simple, adorable drawings. Andersen's keen ability to perceive different feelings and situations pertaining to the issue of being human and to portray them with such humorous simplicity… it is certainly remarkable. I’m completely enamored with her work and Allie Brosh and her Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened now share the podium with lovely Andersen. Classics, poetry, extremely dark and heart-rending books that may or may not have a happy ending are not enough. Books brimful of humor, wit, ludicrous yet common situations and reactions and with silly covers that I don't dare to show in public are also a part of me. They mend what other things have broken. They make reality taste like fiction for a while. This year I spent time on situations that, in the end, didn’t deserve my attention and a million chances. I can search for my lost time but will never get it back. Still, despite giving too much and receiving über-nothing at times, I would like to end this year with a smile. Perhaps, what I consider a flaw is precisely why I should be smiling. This charming book won Best Graphic Novels & Comics. I thought of giving a little speech but, you know. Besides, giving speeches usually precedes a simple meal or large quantities of food and... ...let’s just not tempt fate. So I wrote this nonsense instead, as I also tell you this: Sarah and I will be back in a few days. For now, I’ll keep reading my books and enjoying one of my valid hobbies.

My favourites were for sure: • the ones about bookworms • the ones about introverts needing to socialise for, like, 5 seconds and then introvert for 9 years • washing clothes...or not washing them...for hundreds of years... • pg 85: which basically was a very VERY accurate 6 block comic representation of the internet • I was cracking up • I WAS LAUGHING THIS WHOLE BOOK IT WAS GLORIOUS. The only con was: it's too short. I could look at these highly relatable comics all day. And, you know, procrastinate adulthood that way.

While I’m 1,000 maybe not exactly the target demographic for the Sarah’s Scribbles collection, I still found Adulthood is a Myth to be nearly completely relatable and maybe that I should get a restraining order against the author because it seems like she might be stalking me.

It even covered my fear of what will happen if I discover there really is a heaven . . . Carol was the Goodreads’ friend who got me to request this one from the library after she said it was for fans of Allie Brosch. Pretty much introverts the world over who hate all other humans should enjoy this one just a little. Added bonus for all the ladies in the house who experience the joy of Aunt Flo’s visit every month . . . . (She also has a hilarious one about reaching in your purse when someone asks if you have [insert whatever random item] and 582 tampons come flying out.) If you’re a dude, you may not be able to fully relate, but it’ll shine some light on why your wife hates you more than usual a couple days a month. While this little book was by no stretch of the imagination a huge life changer, it was certainly amusing and I would definitely recommend it.

    Re-reading this just made me realise just how much I love this book, forever one of my favourites. I don't know how it's possible but I got a whole new experience reading this, even if I've read it before. This was so fun and like so relatable. It felt like i was reading the story of my life. You should read this book if you're a; 1. An introvert 2. A book lover 3. A human being Needless to say, I think everyone should read this. It's fun, fast, entertaining and most importantly relatable.

    This was so cute and fun! I read it in one sitting and laughed out loud several times, and I definitely took a picture of a few of these comics to send to friends or post on snapchat. As an anxious bookworm, I really connected with parts of it. The only thing I'm not fond of is there's a few times that this book falls into the mentality of "I hate people!! I want to be alone all the time because I hate every single person I know!!" and I feel like that's such a Tumblr 2012 mentality that I don't This was so cute and fun!

I've seen her comics floating around on social media for years, laughed at them, wondered how such simplistic drawings could be so relatable, and then moved on without giving it so much as a second thought.

Then I stumbled upon Adulthood Is A Myth, and now I'm a big fan. Adulthood Is A Myth isn't so much a comic book in that it doesn't tell a continuous story, but it is a book of comics - they are unrelated but well worth reading at once. I found myself sitting by myself in a room giggling like a crazy person because the comics within this book were so cute and charming. For every little drawing, I felt like Sarah had tapped into my inner thoughts and admitted to the truth of growing up that many of us aim to hide. If you're looking for something easy to read that will surely bring you joy and more than a few laughs, I cannot recommend this more. I checked this out on Hoopla via my local public library, but would gladly purchase in the future in order to support the author and encourage her to continue creating such adorable art. What did I think?: I'm a big comic book fan, and while this isn't necessarily telling a story it is cute and fun which is exactly what I was looking for. Who should read it?: EVERYONE, but especially the women who are realizing that the older we get, the more we embrace comfort. WEBSITE | TWITTER | FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM

(اسم هری پاتر و کودک نفرین شده رو شنیده بودم فقط!) و دیدم این دختر هم بین کتاب های برگزیده است! خوشحال از این که کمیک های پراکنده به یک کتاب تبدیل شده، فوری رفتم به لیبجن و دانلودش کردم، و سه روز باهاش خندیدم.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that if you are socially awkward, you're going to feel identified with this book. Sarah Andersen captures in simple and funny comics, the essence of being awkard and what growing up is all about... ...avoiding old classmates!

    Oh shit, like with the Hyperbole and a Half, I am almost all by myself sitting here, in the corner of "I don't get it".

I am again completely unable to understand all the hype, all the fuss, all the praise, and most definitely cringe when savoring the thought of Adulthood Is a Myth being the winner of Graphic Novels & Comics category here at Goodreads. In fact, when I look at the runner ups, I just want to facepalm my face off to the idea of all the wonderful talent, not just with writing but with beautiful art, that have been overshadowed by the simple cartoon strips that has been done countless of times before. That ain't right, and it ain't an attack toward this work, but an attack toward Goodreads categories. Adulthood Is a Myth is not something that really resonates with me. Adulthood has never been a problem to me, I have never felt the pressure of it, I have never felt the need to justify my actions or my way of living. There is a lot of elements in my life that speaks volumes of the fact that I am an adult, as in having responsibilities, but there is a lot of aspects that are dealt within this work that should, apparently, cause distress. I sleep too little as I love to be up late, and with having kids, have very little possibilities to sleep late. But when the kids get older, I am able to nod off as I please, which is pretty much the case now. I take naps almost daily, I spend most of my days in pajamas. I play with my kids toys, I play video games, I keep movie marathons where I spend 24 hours in front of my TV screen or in front of my projector's wall screen. When the family goes out, I lay on my ass all day long, reading or watching telly. I eat what I want, I exercise whenever I want to. I do not have a good relationship with authority of any kind, but rebel at every chance I get. I very rarely participate to things that would be "necessary" as an adult, as an parent. I only like my own kids, other kids are just annoyance in middle of my peace. In reality, I am as selfish than I was at the age of fifteen despite of living "like an adult in an adult life". I like being by myself as much as I ever have, which is pretty much all the time. I just never knew I should actually stress over it, and maybe write poorly witty comics of it. I always learn more, everyday. But, there is something I wish more women would stop doing. Honestly, this is so uncool, so useless, so insecure that it turns to ugly faster than I can write it down. And it is pretty much this: Yeah, I just don't get Adulthood Is a Myth, but being an adult means I do not even have to. How fucking cool is that.

    Have you ever been in that kind of situation where you felt too awkward or embarrassed and all you wanted is to be buried alive? That feeling when you are the only one in your kind, the rare of the group or the "different one"? Are you reading this as if you with that old classy commercial voice? Well then let me tell you that this book is for you if you answered yes! And if you said no, then maybe you're not making into adulting, or you're a really boring one. Sarah Andersen did an incredible jo Have you ever been in that kind of situation where you felt too awkward or embarrassed and all you wanted is to be buried alive? That feeling when you are the only one in your kind, the rare of the group or the "different one"? Are you reading this as if you with that old classy commercial voice? Well then let me tell you that this book is for you if you answered yes! And if you said no, then maybe you're not making into adulting, or you're a really boring one. Sarah Andersen did an incredible job portraying my life into this book as a graphic novel. I felt identified in every single page. Every. Single. One. When I was a kid the thing I most wanted was to grow up, now I regret a little having wished that, you know? Now that I have to face adulting, college and all that crap I am FREAKING OUT. I can't stand the idea of living alone and having to do everything by my own. ALONE. I know, adulting is scary and everything but we have to step forward the future, don't we? *Me "trying" to accept adulting* First stop, my life communication. As a boy with many trust issues when I was growing up, I was the worst at communicating and this happened me a lot. As an almost-adult, uhm, yeah I don't think I have improved. Am I the only one who does this:? (Please don't make me think I'm a crazy stalker haha) And the part I loved the most about this book: Bookworms issues while being an adult.

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. Initial Thoughts Such a fun little book of cartoons. It put the smile on my face that I needed to day. Full review to be posted soon.

    An utterly charming collection of simple cartoons which illuminate some of life's undeniable truths. For example, thinking about putting on your pajamas all day and then the joy of actually doing so. Or considering being productive but then laying around on the couch in a stupor. Totally relatable and reminiscent of I Was a Child by Bruce Eric Kaplan, Adulthood is a Myth is for anyone who tries to be a normal, functional adult but doesn't succeed. And isn't that all of us?

    What can I say? I love Sarah Scribbles Comics. I always loved them, like since forever (or since I found them on the Internet). I follow her on Facebook, on Instagram and now my wonderful boyfriend bought me her comics (super early christmas present...). And I totally love them. There are soooo relatable and through the whole book I'm like "That's me." "Totally me." "Yep, me."
