    Herding Cats

    My Review: As mentioned in previous reviews, it’s hard to scroll through a social media feed without having seen at least one of Sarah’s Scribbles reblogged at some point. If you’ve read my previous reviews of Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump then you already know that I’m a fan of this comic series. Sarah’s Scribbles is a comic about one artist’s everyday struggles as an awkward and introverted millennial. I’ve always found the comics to be cute and extremely relatable so I’m usually quite happy to read them as they come up. Now, I will say that as a collection, Herding Cats was not the best.…

    Big Mushy Happy Lump

    My Review: For the uninitiated, Sarah’s Scribbles is a webcomic series about an introverted and socially anxious millennial named Sarah. Her comics are wildly popular on social media and are well known for being relatable to many millennials.

When I saw the collected work available at the library I figured I should really take the time to check them out and I’m so happy I did. Sarah’s Scribbles is a comic strip that showcases the everyday experiences of an awkward, introverted young millennial ill-equipped for adult life. Many of…

    Nimona

    My Review: This book was a reminder about how I should never decide whether or not I’ll read a book based on appearances alone. I had seen this book around at the library and never picked it up because it just wasn’t that appealing looking. I ended up reading it because a friend had loaned it to me and asked me to read it. I am so happy that she did, I loved this little graphic novel to bits! Nimona is about a villain named Lord Blackheart and his shapeshifting sidekick, Nimona. They face off with Blackheart’s nemesis, Sir Goldenloin and the Institute. After the first few comics, I didn’t…
