Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles, #3)

Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars 

If you’ve ever wondered if you’re weird and not as social as all of your peers – this book will show you that you are not alone. Sarah draws simple comics that are cute and engaging. They range from fawning over cats to dealing with your significant other – and everything in between. I immediately fell in love with these books and read all three in quick succession.

As an introvert, we view the world and think differently than our extroverted peers and that’s not a bad thing. This is especially important for teens to recognize as it is typically a time in your life in which you are most unsure of your identity and place in the world. The author manages to translate those anxieties and fears into hilarious comic scenes. That being said, some of the scenes are going to not be as relatable to teens because they’re things that you go through as you grow up. As this book is called adulthood is a myth, so it has a lot of coming of age tales and morals that will appeal to everyone whether you’re still coming of age or reminiscing about the ‘good ol’ days’.

All three books are adorable, but Adulthood is a Myth was definitely my favourite of the three. I related to so many of the scenes and pushed the books on anyone that I thought would appreciate them as I did. I would highly recommend them (as well as Quiet Girl In A Noisy World by Debbie Tung), as they are cute graphic novels about introverts that will make you feel seen and understood.

    1. Haha yay! It is super legit. There’s a page at the library who is in high school and loves it, I love it, and my other coworker loves it… and we’re all like 10 years apart, so it’s fairly universal.
