So earlier today I blogged about not having any desire to read or review anything. Then I got this in the mail and everything changed.
F*ck! I'm in My Twenties

I started following Emma Koenig's Tumblr blog sometime in early 2012. She would sporadically post these incredibly funny, heart/gut/brain-wrenchingly astute hand-drawn comics about her life and I would like and reblog them and generally run around holding print outs and screaming, "Me, this is ME!" hoping people would have some kind of insight into my life.
When I heard she had a book coming out, I couldn't have been happier, because a) I think her work is hilarious and b) clearly this is a windfall she needed (hope you took care of that mice prob, girl).
Even though I've seen many of the graphics in the book before, for free, on her tumblr, I bought the paperback and still got at least three solid belly laughs out of it. Which, when you're in your fucking twenties, don't come around as often as you need. And if you're in your twenties you should probably read this book (or at least check out her blog).
I can't wait to see what she does next, writing-wise, because I think she's got a lot to offer. (Also she lives in LA, or did, and I never knew we could have been bffs bb, and ignored each other when we were too busy but been totally understanding about it because F Our Ls call me)
