Big Mushy Happy Lump (Sarah's Scribbles, #2) by Sarah Andersen

Big Mushy Happy Lump (Sarah's Scribbles, #2)

Sarah Andersen's second comics collection picks up right where the first left off - huddled under a pile of blankets avoiding the responsibilities of the real world. These new comics (and illustrated personal essays!) follow the ups and downs of the unrelenting self-esteem roller coaster that is young adult life: budgeting woes, cramps, the nuances of sweater theft, and the joy of staying home all day with a box of pizza. All aboard.

    congratulations, 2017 goodreads choice winner in graphic novel & comics!! oooh, goodreads choice awards semifinalist for best graphic novel! what will happen? 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 hav...

    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.

    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...

    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 ...

    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:

    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...

    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...

    سارا اندرسن عزیز؛ تو هیچوقت این ریویو رو نمی خونی ولی کتاب کوچکت منو تو یکی از سخت ترین و دردناک ترین هفته های زندگیم خندوند و باعث شد برای چند لحظه فراموش کنم و تو دنیای ساده ی گربه و سویشرت و درگیری های روزمره غرق شمو فکر می کنم این انتهای رسالت بعضی...
  • Ahmed Ejaz
    WOW! Again I am amazed how she has created humor out of real life situations. Adulthood is a Myth was also a relatable and humorous read. And so was this one. Another thing I liked about this comic is that, this time Sarah wrote personal essays on 'mostly she doesn't like popular things' and 'how she came to love cats' and 'her being a sweater theif'. Last one was uniquely weird. But I liked that too. :pAll in all, I highly recommend both, this o...

    جلد یکش رو بیشتر دوست داشتم شاید چون محوریت بیشتری داشت موضوعاتش.خیلی لذت بردم از خوندن اکثر صفحاتش. بعضی بخشهاش نکتهش رو نمیگرفتم ولی در کل خیلی احساس خوبی بود و بعضی صفحاتش رو برای بقیه به اشتراک میذاشتم تا از این درک مشترک نهایت لذت رو ببریم! جلد ...

    3.5 StarsNot as funny as the first book, but wasn’t that bad. Just wasn’t really great like the first one!

    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...

    I freaking love these books
  • 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.

    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...
  • Montzalee Wittmann
    A book to bring a smile to my heartSarah knows how to make her art express the everyday life trials in a funny way yet with truth! Her art is fun and heartwarming and I can't help smile at the crazy antics she draws. Another winner of a book! Loved it. Will read it again before returning it to the library. Great fun!
  • Jennifer
    Cute, relatable, and short, Big Mushy Happy Lump is the second installment in Sarah Andersen's comic series of personal essays titled: Sarah's Scribbles. Although I've seen shots from this book on the internet every now and then, this is the first time I've actually opened the cover of Andersen's work. Overall, I liked it. Many people can relate to the life issues threaded throughout these nonfiction comics. I think since the internet tends to sh...

    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.

    Again, a super early christmas present from my wonderful boyfriend. I loved her frist book and I'm also in love with her second book. I will continue reading every comic she makes. You can't stop me! :D

    I relate to this comic book on a spiritual level.It was very funny, awfully adorable and really enjoyable.
  • 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. ...

    Sarah první knize Dospělost je mýtus jsem dala 4*, protože jsem si říkala ,,Ty jo, přece nemůžu dát 5* komiksu s vtípky a pak 5* nějakému propracovanému románu... To by bylo divný, ne ...?" A víte co, kašlu na tooooo!!! Dám tomu 5*, protože to bylo božíííííí a já jsem se řáchala doma na celý kolo! Miluju Tě, Sarah (ale svetr Ti nepůjčím, ty zlodějko!).
  • Cyndi
    This book has gotten a lot of hype and I wondered if any of it was justified. It is. The art is simple and adorable while hitting so many issues right on the head. Of course I loved the panels we’ve all seen so many times of the heroine spending conservatively everywhere but the book store. Most of us readers would happily spend more money on books. But there are also excellent panels on puberty, college debt, and periods. Definitely worth read...

    For what it is, this is cute and relatable.
