Adjusting to life as a world-famous cartoonist isn't easy. Terrifying deadlines, piles of junk-food wrappers under a glowing computer screen, and an ever-growing horde of pets....umm, never mind--it's pretty much the same.With characteristic wit and charm, Sarah Andersen's third collection of comics and illustrated personal essays offers a survival guide for frantic modern life: from the importance of avoiding morning people, to Internet troll defense 101, to the not-so-life-changing futility of tidying up. But when all else fails and the world around you is collapsing, make a hot chocolate, count the days until Halloween, and snuggle up next to your furry beacon of hope....

Herding Cats (Sarah's Scribbles #3) Reviews
I truly enjoyed this little collection, but the reasons I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 4 are these:
- it was incredibly short
- there didn't seem to be a common denominator, a topic - they didn't seem tied in
- not a lot was to do with cats? Again, we come back to the lack of topic
- I've heard that the previous collection was much better in terms of interralatedness of topics, and while I haven't read it, I also feel like this could be true, and if I do read it in the future, I don't want to have ...more
I enjoyed the other two books in this series and was thrilled to see Sarah's latest up on Netgalley. The first half was more enjoyable for me as it had her trademark relatable, quirky, life happenings depicted in humorous comics. The latter half was more Sarah giving advice to aspiring artists. Overall, another fun installment in this series, and I am grateful I was able to spend some time with Sarah and her drawings.
Thank you to Sarah Andersen, Andrews McMeel Publishing, and Netgalley, for the ...more
I’ve read most of these already on Sarah’s instagram page, but I loved this all the same! I wish there were more pictures and a little bit less text, though, I appreciated that stuff about artists and self doubt. Still, 20 more pages of comics would’ve been nice, right?
This is me.
If you're friends with me on any sort of personal social media account, you probably already know that I have an unhealthy obsession with Sarah's Scribbles. While I adore webcomics from all sorts of artists and sources, Sarah's are some of the few comics that can, without fail, always make me laugh out loud, smile, or even just go, "Yep, been there." This collection is probably my favorite so far. I just about died laughing over some of the comics, while others had me nodding vigorously and biti ...more

I don't know what it is about Andersen's creations that make me feel so excited. Is it the cute girl with the big eyes, hungry to understand the paranoia around her? The modern, unassuming style? The honest way in which she approaches the problematizations depicted in her sketches? The sensitivity in which she describes a difficult reality? I don't know. Whatever it is, I always find myself reading her work with utter enthusiasm, eagerly waiting for the next installment.
Por alguna razón amo estas tiras cómicas. Este libro me ha gustado más que el segundo, me parece más tierno (debido a que hay muchos gatitos y perritos) y las notas que la autora nos regala al final han sido muy bonitas. Aparte de que aquí nos habla un poquito sobre el arte, y cuánta razón tiene! Seguiré muy de cerca su trabajo, es realmente impresionante.
A digitial copy of this book was provided by NetGalley
This is a graphic novel about Sarah (the author) who (sometimes) struggles with anxiety and social situations (among other things).
The stories within reflect her experiences and are completely relatable, insightful, and funny. It was a very quick read and I loved it.
This is the second book I've read from this author, the first one was Adulthood Is a Myth which was also excellent.
If you love cats and have a quirky, introverted personality then you will find a kindred soul on Sarah's novels.

This is why I love being a book blogger - getting early access to books written by my favorite authors before they're available to the general public. I was reading over my review for BIG MUSHY HAPPY LUMP, which I received as an ARC in early 2017, and I was bemoaning the wait-time between books. Sarah Andersen gets what it's like to be a moody, anxious, cat-loving, people-avoiding artist, and her hilarious comics reflect the nail-biting int ...more
