  • karen
    this is both very similar to and very different from Adulthood Is a Myth.thematically, much of the same ground is covered: procrastination, social awkwardness, the joy of comfortable clothes, the irritants that go along with being female, self image, and the bullying inner voice we all have that keeps our ego in check.however, while adulthood was a collection of unrelated cartoons (and NOT a graphic novel, goodreads), this one contains some longe...

    Sarah Andersen is the "Queen of Relatable Humor". I laughed at every single page saying "Yeah, I can totally relate to this and this and this and......."The way she has illustrated social anxiety and over-thinking is just superb. With her awesome sense of humor she has become my favorite author. Love her a lot!I can't wait to get a copy of Big Mushy Happy Lump for myself and I am already waiting (eagerly) for the next one. Yes, yes, I am that gre...

    2.5 stars.I know. I'm that mean heifer. I love this author's work, but if I'm going to shell out my hard earned monies that I earn at a job I's got to be for some new work.Not just a re-hash of stuff I've already seen.For example: I do admit to thinking the above image is one of the most fantastical things ever, but to put it back in book two? Umm I'm not a fan of that.There is plenty of wonderful in this one.. I'm still going with being...

    I was mentally and emotionally spent after having read Hannah Kent’s Burial Rites, so this comic collection fit perfectly for my need of something light and easy to cheer me up. I also found Big Mushy Happy Lump a lot more enjoyable and relatable than Andersen's previous collection, so that left me with an ever bigger smile plastered on my face.Sarah Andersen's second collection picks up right where the first left off–huddled under a pile of ...

    Precious fuzzy book.

    Sarah Andersen, I love your drawings! I could say that it feels as if she can crawl inside my head and see my most intimate thoughts and frustration. But I see many other people feel the same way. So I want to thank Sarah for showing me that there are other people such as myself out there. And I hope that she will publish many more Sarah's Scribbles books/comics. *I thank Sarah Andersen, Andrews McMeel Publishing, and Netgalley for this copy in e...

    I know now who my ever- faithful companions for life are. Meet Mister Social Anxiety and Mister Over-Thinking while Mister Crippling Lack of Self-Confidence appears in many Oscar-worthy cameos. And these gentlemen are gloriously presented by the pen of the magnificent and ridiculously talented Sarah Andersen.I feel so connected to the wonderful character Andersen has created. The introverted, procrastinating, awkward me was constantly nodding in ...
  • Cait (Paper Fury)
    I really enjoyed the first Sarah Scribbles book so I was pretty excited to read this one!! It was, of course, SUPER RELATABLE for anxious introverts. Although I didn't think it was quite as relatable as the first one. For starters: I don't like cats (#allergic) and I don't steal the larger comfy sweaters of humans in my life (I don't have larger humans in my life and I don't like touching other people's thank you). BUT!! There were c...

    After reading Sarah Andersen's first book of comics, I couldn't resist checking this one out. Luckily, it was just as cute as the first one and just as enjoyable. If you enjoy those cute, relatable comics that everyone seems to enjoy sharing on social media - you MUST check this out. Every one of these had me giggling and appreciating Sarah Andersen's humor. Not to mention, the artwork is so well done in it's simplicity and there's really somethi...

    Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || Amazon || PinterestOh, Sarah Andersen. I love you the way Californians love avocados.I've been purposely putting off reading my ARC of this book. Not because I thought it was going to be bad, mind, but because I enjoyed ADULTHOOD IS A MYTH so much that I wanted to savor the anticipation of reading this book because I knew it would be at least another year or more until Andersen published a new one. That can't b...
  • Scarlet Cameo
    English review at the bottomCuando leí Adulthood Is a Myth nunca había visto nada creado por Sarah Andersen, ese fue mi primer acercamiento con su obra y puedo decir que me gustó mucho y continué, de vez en cuando, siguiéndole la pista a los post en Facebook que ella realiza, es por ello que para este libro muchos de los cuadros ya no se me hicieron novedosos o fascinantes, de hecho conforme conocí un poco más el trabajo de Andersen muchos...
  • Sam Quixote
    Sarah Andersen follows up her Goodreads Choice Award-winning book Adulthood is a Myth with Big Mushy Happy Lump, which is essentially more of the same - if it ain’t broke, eh? Andersen’s strips are humorous and self-deprecating snapshots focusing on her insecurities, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, social awkwardness, period pains, and general self-loathing (procrastination) couched within drawings of cute big-eyed/small-bodied figures. ...
  • Erin
    I love these books. Sarah's Scribbles are short, witty, and hilarious. While I don't have social anxiety ( I just hate people and enjoy solitude) I do understand her battle with over thinking everything and her epic battle against her ovaries. While not as great as book 1 I still found myself giggling and nodding in agreement. Plus boyfriend sweaters are way more comfortable than your own. Highly recommend The Sarah's Scribbles collection. Popsug...

    I love Sarah's comics so much and have read them for ages. Finally convinced myself to buy her new book and I'm so happy I did. I laughed out loud so many times, and so strongly relate to everything she does. I know I'll pick this book up and flick through it whenever I need a smile. If you're introverted, shy or deal with anxiety, I think you'll find a lot to relate with here.
  • David Schaafsma
    Second collection of Sarah Scribbles, more of the same, funny, light, focused on her introversion, lack of self-confidence, social anxiety, body image, guys vs women. . . . her life, basically. Some pieces on art. I smiled throughout, sometimes laughing aloud. Adorably self-deprecating. You don't know who this is? Here's some of her stuff:

    I relate to this comic book on a spiritual level.It was very funny, awfully adorable and really enjoyable.
  • Arezu Wishka
    من متوجه شدم که ما یه سری کتاب ها رو برای این می خونیم که حس کنیم درک می شیم و کتاب های تصویری سارا اندرسون دقیقا این حس درک شدن رو به دوست داشتنی ترین شکل به آدم می ده و به خاطر همین از لحظه ای که شروعش می کنی نمی تونی زمینش بذاری.

    4.5this book is even better than the first onestill awesome and hilarious but this one was so relatable to meespecially the chapter named " i don't know how to be a person"it was a really fun reading
  • Dana
    Big Mushy Happy Lump is another entertaining offering from Sarah Andersen. While it lacks a tiny bit of the magic that was found in Adulthood Is a Myth, I still got a lot of enjoyment out of this book. Many of the comics included were laugh out loud funny, and you will still find yourself showing everyone you know the farcical stories that anyone can relate to. Great read, bring on the next one!Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: BuyCheck out more of my ...

    As fantastic as the first one. Anderson also talks about dealing with social anxiety—with the help of adorable pictures of course.E-ARC provided by Netgalley
  • Nicole
    My life at the moment in one pic:When I finished Adulthood is a myth, I quickly picked up the sequel. It was so fun and relatable but sadly not as good as the first one. Big Mushy Happy Lump deals with social anxiety, sweaters adoration, love/hate of cats and so much more. Unlike the first book, this one featured many stories developed in more than a page.I wish the side notes were less because I prefer to see and think for myself, I'm not sure i...
  • Lauren
    Sarah Andersen does it again, and by that, I mean she made me laugh SO MUCH throughout, I had tears in my eyes. What I love about Andersen's work is how effortlessly she captures what most of us "introverted" types think. She addresses the issues of puberty, stress, becoming an adult, episodes in our lives which can be traumatic for some, and talks about her own anxieties and social awkwardness in an extended story towards the end of the book whi...

    برخلاف adulthood is a myth این کتاب تکست داشت و یه سری مشکلات اجتماعی در برخورد با سایر افراد رو نشون داده بود (ی جورایی) و خب من کتاب قبلیو خیلی بیشتر دوست داشتم. مرسی از نازنین عزیز و lady nerd ک کتابو بهم رسوندن 💜پ.ن: جا داره اینجا بگم که این بار لینک کتابو نمیدم...

    Se me olvidó hablar de este libro por aquí pero si fueráis buenos fanses ya sabríais que he hablado de él en el canal en mi wrap up de agosto y septiembre . Pero bueno, para resumir: es un libro genial, como todo lo que hace Sarah Andersen. Me reí un montón con él y es mega cuqui y adorable. Si una pega le pongo es que la traducción es terrible, pero el resto es maravilloso. Qué ganas de leer más cosas de esta señora.

    Sarah is still on a mission to make you feel slightly less unique in this world... :(She does that in a very charming and funny way, though... But still... :DIt's an awesome book. :D
  • Farith
    4.5 stars.Sarah Andersen has become one of my favorite persons of all time. EVER.She's one the few persons in this world I can really relate to! I bet we'd be great friends.This book, as her last one, Adulthood is a myth, shows a lot of embarrassing and awkward situations that we all face everyday.Reading this now was perfect, I could see I wasn't alone in some areas of my life I'm fighting to. Like depression, anxiety and -believe it or not- sel...

    I have a test on Monday, that means 3 things:* I am in the mood to read anything and everything right now!* I wanted something funny to reduce all the stress, and this book is just perfect for this time.It is so relateable, I bet that you can find at least 3 pages that you can absolutely relate to.Here is an example:* Wish me luck on my test!!I said before that this works more as Facebook posts than a book, but I enjoyed this nonetheless.I also f...
