I found this interesting in the fact that it was cool to hear about her life and career. I didn't know she had a podcast called Unqualified where they talk about relationships. She did a few situational dialogue readings and a few podcast caller advice readings that got sort of old after a while.

She seems like a pretty down to earth person and so it was fun to learn more about her but I'm not sure if I would read/listen to another book by her.

I really like Anna and was hoping to hear more about her career, working on Mom with Allison Janney, etc. but it was short on career and long on her sex life. Too much information. Her career would be much more interesting for her fans to read about.

I‘ll try and get over the fact that Chris Pratt didn‘t even read the foreword HE wrote, but it did make me raise my eyebrows when she gushed over what a good relationship they have post divorce. Mhmm 🤔🙄 Anyways, I struggled with this. She spent the first 10 mins talking about how horrible she is at writing and how she doesn‘t know why anyone would let her write a book or read it. Not the most promising beginning that led to a overall “meh” book.

#audiocoloring Anna Farris is really witty and smart. I love her. Felicia Day will always be my girl crush 💕, but Anna‘s book is great so far.

I. Love. Libby. 😍 I couldn‘t sleep last night, so I was looking for an audiobook. The ones I own that are unread are complex and heavy stories. This isn‘t bad, but they weren‘t what I was in the mood for. I hopped on to Libby to see what they had. I love Anna Faris - despite being cast in “dumb girl” roles, she‘s incredibly smart. She‘s also very funny.
It‘s her book on dating/relationship advice, and I can‘t wait to see where it goes.

I like Anna Farris and think she‘s a good actress, but I would describe this book as TMI about her sexual experiences and no where near enough about her experiences on the acting jobs she has taken.

rubyslippersreads Thanks for the warning. 😬 1y
Reita325 I was both bored by the details and disappointed. I was hoping she‘d have a lot more info about her career; especially her work on Mom, which I enjoy and has fabulous co-stars. 1y

I like Anna Faris. She is funny and smarter than she is usually given credit for. But this book was confusing. Believe me - I get that marriage is not a straightforward good/bad, happy/unhappy kind of thing. But this book felt like a love letter to Chris Pratt and their fantastic marriage, which had ended by the time the book was released. Continued in comments.

Krisjericho No judgement - I completely get that we have no idea how other people‘s relationships are behind closed doors, but it made the book feel less honest. And I think Faris wants to be honest, so this puzzled me. I did enjoy it, even if some of the shine of my affection for Chris Pratt was dulled when I found out in his foreword that he isn‘t much of a reader. (edited) 2y
Readergrrl I haven‘t read this book but I really liked the honesty of your review. I imagine I would feel the same way. 2y

Soooo...I must say I was pretty disappointed in this book. 😌I have nothing against Anna as a person, but a writer she is not. This was a weird mix of random topics and unsolicited advice for hypothetical situations. Also, reading about her perfect marriage to Chris Pratt is so disheartening, knowing they separated right when this was released. Wouldn't recommend this unless you are a huge fan of hers. 2⭐️

MandaChittles I feel exactly the same way! I actually didn‘t finish it! I listened to it on audio if that makes any difference.... 2y
JenlovesJT47 @MandaChittles glad I'm not alone! It's probably even worse on audiobook! 😱 2y

I really wanted to like this one more. I really like Anna Faris, but this book is just so so for me. A good part of it is in the timing, I think, since she talks a lot about her marriage to Chris Pratt.

I am fairly picky about celebrity memoirs, because they can irritate me with their never-ending pleasure in themselves. This one just made me wish Anna Faris was my neighbor. Funny, smart, kind - a great read.

I like Faris and enjoy her podcast but her book was a bit lackluster. It‘s also weird to read/listen to her wax poetic about her marriage when she announced her separation just before her book was released. Not a bad listen but not one I‘d recommend, either. Fans will enjoy it but if you‘re lukewarm on her, skip it. #readharder2018 #celebritymemoir

I finished this ebook this morning, and decided to share some of my favorite quotes instead of a regular picture. While I don‘t think Anna Faris said anything that hasn‘t been said before, her personal stories made that okay. Very charming and sweet and hard to put down.

Yes I am reviewing this before the book is over. While it isn‘t horrible and painful, I caught myself looking to see how much longer was left.
Anna is great and real. But I don‘t think she should have been given a book deal. Make sense?

I‘m not loving this but not hating it either. Celebrity memoirs have a much lenient scale than my usual scale. #sadbuttrue

Admittedly, when I heard about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris ending their marriage, I was bummed, but also curious about Anna‘s memoir. I‘m so glad I read it. It was smart, funny and charming. Despite her celebrity status and high profile relationship, at the end of the day she‘s a funny, down-to earth woman just doing her best to raise a great kid and get through the day as well as she can.

For me, celebrity memoirs usually get a gracious pass — I get a kick out of a good, light-hearted read, and so I usually just give them a good review. This one is no different. I adore Faris and have been following her podcast from the beginning, so it was a blast to hear her voice here in book form. She doesn‘t really touch on the announcement that she & Pratt are separating, so heads up if you‘re looking for details or gossip there.

This is a fun one, I‘m enjoying it. Still sad about her and Chris Pratt ending their marriage, but I digress. I think I should get into her podcast of the same name. Anyone else listen to her podcast?

Notafraidofwords I️ tried. But so much rambling. I️ cannot take it lol 2y
HollyB3 @Notafraidofwords interesting and good to know. 2y
Hannah_Haymond I agree it can ramble, but I like the casual format and the segments where they have guests help with the caller questions can be really fun. Give it a try! The Lauren Graham episode is fun, and the Chris Evans/Jenny Slate one is great, and Chris Pratt joins at the end of that one too (edited) 2y
HollyB3 @Hannah_Haymond oh nice! Thanks for the recs. I find jumping into a new podcast overwhelming when there are a lot of episodes. It‘s hard to know where to begin. 2y

I love Anna Faris and her book makes me love her even more. She is very smart and candid in this book with lots of words of wisdom from her experiences. I found that she as very open about personal situations, like her son's health issues and her own personal growth. She's someone who I would love to have as my friend.

Anna Faris has been through it all and wants to share what she has learned along the way. This is her debut comic memoir where she shares her candid, sympathetic, and entertaining stories of love lost and won and advice from her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified.

Great book to listen to on audio! 🎧✨
