Scrappy Little Nobody
Scrappy Little Nobody | Anna Kendrick
A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of "Up in the Air" and "Pitch Perfect." I m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit! Anna Kendrick Anna Kendrick s autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood s most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick s essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture."

I am thankful for this Litsy community for all their talk of listening to books while they do random things because my world has been blown wide open. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Anna tell me her story

Tamra While I‘m in a grad class, really the only unassigned reading I get done is via audio. It is such a boon!!! 6d
mcctrish @Tamra now if I could just find the earphones that came with my new phone I could be a bit more stealth about it 🤣 6d

I have of course misplaced the headphones that came with my phone ( iPhone XR) so none of my stock pile work. Most of the time I listen to my audio book in the car so it doesn‘t matter that I just let it play out loud. Same when I‘m on the treadmill in my basement. But, I need another option. I can‘t handle $329 for real earbuds but these look nice and are under $40 🤔

I got totally stuck in traffic today because of a train stopped blocking a major north/south roadway ( welcome to London, Ontario where the city thinks level train crossings are acceptable 🤦🏻‍♀️) but I have my audio book habit going strong so I don‘t even care 😆and I still got to the bakery for these beauties

Scrappy Little Nobody is funny, quirky and endearing. It's always interesting learning about a celebrity's history. I had no idea that Anna Kendrick got her start as a child star. I have read quite a few celebrity memoirs in the past month and they all are pretty similar, but I appreciate her voice and realness. Her slight sarcasm and quirky humor are similar to my own, so I may have found it funnier than most.

Finished this while #audiowalking tonight. I‘ve always liked Anna Kendrick‘s fast talking and awkwardness, so this was a more enjoyable celebrity book than most. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ since it‘s read by her.

Today, I‘ve been much more productive than yesterday or Monday. Went to get an oil change for my car, so I read part of European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman. After I got back to my town, I went ahead and took a walk (2nd walk of #BFCr3). Started tagged book in car and continued on walk. I like this one so far.
Since I‘m packing around a 700-pg book, someone had to point out how big it is, of course. Twice. 🙄

Laughterhp Great day! Sounds very productive. Must be very heavy carrying around a 700 page book! 3mo
Scochrane26 @laughterhp it‘s not heavy, it‘s just thick. But, I didn‘t want to buy it & library doesn‘t have it for kindle. 3mo

Could relate to author more since she's closer to my age than a lot of celeb memoir-writers. Not quite as much meat to this book as others I've read of late but still enjoyable. (Audio)

Anna is a complex person. At times in her book I don't like her and other times I love her. She is very sarcastic and funny. She had good stories to share about her life and how she got started in acting. Make sure you read the questions for further discussion at the end!

Just started on this #NonFiction #BlameItOnLitsy book for April and one chapter in, and I am already enjoying it so much and can totally relate! 😍😎😍😎😍😎
I also suspect this is one of those books where one will laugh out loud quite a lot as well as spit out one's drink on occasion. 😂😂😂

I didn‘t love everything about this book, but I really enjoyed it quite a bit!! I especially loved that it was read by the author. I enjoyed learning more about Anna (I love her in Pitch Perfect) - she seems really honest and down to earth with her stories. There were some parts that made me think “wow maybe a little TOO honest!? I wouldn‘t share that!” Overall it was a clever, enjoyable read. It was over too quick!

Finished reading this one today and loved it. I've always been a fan of Anna Kendrick but it took me a while to read her book. I loved how she wrote this it allows you to really get a more realistic feel for her. While her stories are uniquely hers, I could relate to a lot of the things she wrote about. Definitely feel in love with her more lol

This is my third autobiography, I wasn't feeling the previous two I have read as much. So it made me cautious if they're for me. But I really enjoyed this one. I didn't feel the need to just keep going, just to finish. I received this as a gift. Like all other ones I have read.
The feeling of just hanging out with Anna was real. And I have seen a bunch of her work too. But not everything

This book had me laughing right from the start. As a big fan of Anna Kendrick's reading this book was a must. After reading her book it made me love her even more. She makes herself so relatable. It shows you how down to earth and humble she really is and how she doesn't take herself too seriously.

After listening to this book I am thoroughly convinced that most autobiographies should be listened to and not read. Anna Kendrick is an odd, fun, down to earth and goofy person. There were so many moments that I imagined if I had read that phrase or paragraph, I would have lost the essence of Anna as she put so much personality into reading her book. A really fun and light listen if you need something easy in your life.

Really enjoying this. While I‘m not a fan per say, I love how charming she seems to be in interviews and that is out in full force in this funny memoir.

I‘ve been a fan of the clever and quick-witted Ms. Kendrick for years, and was thus unsurprised by finding this memoir both charming and candid. From funny and embarrassing anecdotes to stories of vulnerability, anxiety, and grief, her tales are relatable — even if she‘s an Oscar-nominated actress and I‘m, well, something really opposite of that.

Interesting, well written, self-deprecating, provides glimpses behind the curtain, and read by the author herself. Exactly what I want from a celebrity (audio) memoir.

It's #HumpDayPost time! @MinDea

1. Anna Kendrick because she's hilarious and scrappy.
2. I try to be in bed by 11, but I'm not super strict. Although summer usually brings an earlier bed time. I seriously wish I could hibernate in the summer.
3. Contemporary Fiction.
4. I do not have any strong feelings about my kitchen appliances.
5. Lol, the bookstore! Partly because I work there. ;) But I'm more of a buyer than a borrower.

A collection of witty biographical essays about the perks and pitfalls of fame, relationships, social anxiety, and becoming an adult when you‘d really rather remain a man-baby.
