Eeep! I love it when I hear about a new book, even more so when its by someone wickedly hilarious and completely relateable. I’m talking about Anna Kendrick writing a book! She is the star of Pitch Perfect and Into the Woods – acting, signing, funny as hell – that’s the girl. She is also responsible for such raucous tweets as:
@AnnaKendrick47 Does anyone else think “don’t be a weirdo, don’t be a weirdo” over and over when entering social gatherings? Cause I don’t.
@AnnaKendrick47 You’re probably right.*
— *You’re wrong, I just don’t want to seem like a dick about it.
Classic. I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on her collection of autobiographical essays that is due to be published in 2016.
In the mean time here’s what Anna had to say on the book:
“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!”
