Review | Why Are You Like This? by Meg Adams

A collection of comics with a millennial take on marriage, adulthood, pet ownership, self-love, and self-care. 

Finally, comics that answer life’s most pressing questions: Is my partner actually upset or just hangry? Whose turn is it to remember the reusable shopping bags? Is it appropriate to put up Halloween décor two months in advance? (Spoiler alert: Yes. Yes, it is.) 

“Opposites attract” has never rung truer when it comes to vivacious extrovert Meg and her level-headed introvert husband, Carson. Carson makes his coffee with only the finest locally roasted beans; Meg microwaves two-day-old joe. Carson is reserved and rarely opens up to friends; Meg ensures everyone in her life—including her mailman—knows about her hemorrhoid. From the joys of marrying your best friend to the bizarre musings of a twelve-pound pup to the humor and heartbreak of anxiety, Meg’s all-too-relatable comics leave no stone unturned. Dorky and downright hilarious, Why Are You Like This? explores what it means to make fun of oneself and find laughter in the little things.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Having seen some of Meg Adams’ comics before I was eager to pick up a whole collection of them. So many of her comics are easy to relate to whether it be regarding her relationships, her pets or her personality. It was a quick and fun read that had me laughing the whole time, while also often nodding in agreement with the comics. I really love how she’s able to communicate things in a short format that is so relatable and humorous.

Happy reading!
