You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)
You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost): A Memoir | Felicia Day
The Instant New York Times BestsellerFeaturing a Foreword by Joss Whedon Felicia Day is a lot of fun, and so is her book. George R. R. Martin From online entertainment pioneer, actress, and queen of the geeks Felicia Day, Youre Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is a relentlessly funny and surprisingly inspirational (Forbes.com), memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to internet stardom, and embracing her weirdness to find her place in the world.When Felicia Day was a girl, all she wanted was to connect with other kids (desperately). Growing up in the Deep South, where she was home-schooled for hippie reasons, she looked online to find her tribe. The internet was in its infancy and she became an early adopter at every stage of its growthfinding joy and unlikely friendships in the emerging digital world. Her relative isolation meant that she could pursue passions like gaming, calculus, and 1930s detective novels without shame. Because she had no idea how uncool she really was. But if it hadnt been for her strange background the awkwardness continued when she started college at sixteen, with Mom driving her to campus every dayshe might never have had the naive confidence to forge her own path. Like when she graduated as valedictorian with a math degree and then headed to Hollywood to pursue a career in acting despite having zero contacts. Or when she tired of being typecast as the crazy cat-lady secretary and decided to create her own web series before people in show business understood that online video could be more than just cats chasing laser pointers. Felicias rags-to-riches rise to internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Ever candid, she opens up about the rough patches along the way, recounting battles with writers block, a full-blown gaming addiction, severe anxiety and depressionand how she reinvented herself when overachieving became overwhelming. Showcasing Felicias engaging and often hilarious voice (USA TODAY), Youre Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should celebrate what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible noweven for a digital misfit.

I should probably use a more flattering pic of Felicia, but eh, this one's amusing.

I'm a fan of Felicia Day, and have been since The Guild was released back in the day. It's surprising it took me this long to pick up this book, honestly.

I had fun with this book. It's very much a memoir, and as usual she's very honest, even when you can tell it hurts a little. After reading this, I'm looking forward to her upcoming book.

I. Loved. This. Book!
The writing was wonderful! Fully accessible and charming, I very quickly found myself not only identifying a lot with her, but laughing out loud too. She was so open and honest. And even though she talked about things like depression and anxiety, she injected it with humor. This book has inspired me to be more creative. Felicia Day is a badass. Seriously. Five full stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

It‘s raining and overcast today, and this kind of weather almost always gives me a headache. So I‘m having some coffee (irregular heartbeat be damned) and listening to this audiobook. I‘m hoping the small jolt of caffeine will help my head, and Arya is enjoying licking out my empty mug. 👍☕️

You've allprobably already seen it, but for those who haven't: Litsy is now on the web as well :)
The first thing I noted about it was that the images are larger and we can now see our books in all their photogenic glory :D
The app will probably always remain my go-to incarnation of litsy, but I think the website is a very nice addition.

This was interesting and funny for the most part but I think maybe audio was the wrong choice for this one. It was honestly, a little bit annoying when listening. I felt like there was going to be more to this and was a little disappointed by the content.

My first audiobook of the new year and my first #booked2019 book! #relatedtoapodcast
This was such a fun read! Felicia Day is one of the best memoir readers I‘ve heard yet. Charming, friendly, funny- I felt like I was right there in the room with her listening to her stories.

Cinfhen Excellent...I‘m going to note this for myself in case I need a good audio 10mo
Traci1 I loved this one. Wish I'd listened to it on audio, though. 10mo
IndoorDame @Traci1 this time it paid off, but audiobooks are always a gamble, still I‘m one of those readers who likes always having a physical book an audiobook and an ebook so I can switch titles depending on if I‘m washing dishes/waiting in line at the dmv/home relaxing etc 10mo

Last night, as I was catching up on season 13 of Supernatural, I was pleasantly surprised that Felicia Day was in the episode! I looked on my Insta and dug up this old photo- of yet another book I purchased and haven‘t read yet. I‘m sure it will look lovely in my home library some day. 😇 Any of you Littens read this book?

"I read a book!" That's what I say in real life as soon as I read the last line of a book. Ask my boyfriend and my kids. They always reply the same too. Either "I know" or "Again". Anyway, finished this last night. So, I read a book.

I'm going to have to go back and rewatch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Despite the fact that I can't say that I remember Felicia Day, this memoir was an entertaining enough read.

"I mean, why isn't HGTV the same channel in every city? Why do they have to make it so hard to decompress while watching people remodel things? I need to see couples fight over landscaping costs before I go to sleep at night. This is important for me!"

#12 In my humble opinion, there's no better way to read a celebrity memoir than to listen to them read it. They're just sharing their story of success and they'll get the tone exactly right. When I read it on my own, I get the tone all wrong and they sound condescending. I'm a big fan of The Guild and Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog, so I enjoyed reading about how this math/music prodigy managed to make it in Hollywood via the Internet. #Readharder

LOVED LOVED LOVED this audiobook! Although I didn't have an eccentric upbringing and I'm not much of a gamer (because I know I'd become unhealthily obsessed), I can completely relate to Felicia...especially the neurotic, anxious, & awkward Felicia. Truely funny and inspiring, Felicia Day has officially been moved up to RL role model...most of my role models are more fictional, so yay! 🙌

Felicia Day is one of those women who stayed true to herself and made her way through hard work and determination. Totally an inspirational and cautionary tale of what happens when you cling to who you are and hold on like you‘re riding a bull counting the seconds. Definitely would read again for her brutal honesty about anxiety and depression and perfectionism.
