I received an advanced copy of How to be Perfectly Unhappy from NetGally in exchange for a fair and honest review.


I think How to be Perfectly Unhappy may be my favorite collection of Matthew Inman’s work to date. Not only does it still have the sometimes insane humor that we all know and love, but it blends it together with a surprisingly deep message, one that I personally resonated with.

I’ve read bits and pieces of How to be Perfectly Unhappy on the Oatmeal website, but it was actually really nice to be able to read through it all in one go. I think that anybody that’s ever struggled with the issue of “not being happy enough” should give this a read. It’s very well done and exceptionally insightful.

If you’re a fan of Matthew Inman and the Oatmeal, you may want to consider buying this book. It is deeply personal and touching, and I feel like I know him better now because of it. I certainly feel like I can relate to him more now. And as a bonus, supporting an artist you like is always amazing!



About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
