Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

I used to read this blog religiously, and I’ve had the related book in my to-read pile for quite a while. It was so lovely to revisit the illustrations that I knew so well, but also to read the deeper stories behind them. Some of them were fun - the goose infiltrating the kitchen and taking over the house - but some of them were more serious - investigating what makes a person who they are, or dealing with depressions. Ultimately it’s a unique way of telling stories about your life, and I really enjoyed it.
