Shelf control

Shelf control is a meme created by bookshelf fantasies. It’s a weekly feature in which you choose a book already on you shelf or ereader en do a blogpost about it.


This week I would like to focus my attention on the following book:

Goodreads | Bookdepository



Title:
 Scappy Little Nobody
Author: Anna Kendrick
Published: 2016
Length: 304 pages

What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):

A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect.

Even before she made a name for herself on the silver screen starring in films like Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air, Twilight, and Into the Woods, Anna Kendrick was unusually small, weird, and “10 percent defiant.”

At the ripe age of thirteen, she had already resolved to “keep the crazy inside my head where it belonged. Forever. But here’s the thing about crazy: It. Wants. Out.” In Scrappy Little Nobody, she invites readers inside her brain, sharing extraordinary and charmingly ordinary stories with candor and winningly wry observations.

With her razor-sharp wit, Anna recounts the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture as only she can—from her unusual path to the performing arts (Vanilla Ice and baggy neon pants may have played a role) to her double life as a middle-school student who also starred on Broadway to her initial “dating experiments” (including only liking boys who didn’t like her back) to reviewing a binder full of butt doubles to her struggle to live like an adult woman instead of a perpetual “man-child.”

Enter Anna’s world and follow her rise from “scrappy little nobody” to somebody who dazzles on the stage, the screen, and now the page—with an electric, singular voice, at once familiar and surprising, sharp and sweet, funny and serious (well, not that serious).

How I got it:
I bought it via a site called bol.com.

When I got it:
It just got in the mail a couple of days ago.

Why I want to read it:
I love Anna Kendrick, her writing a book gives me such joy. Besides that I am participating in a reading challenge. The goal for me is to read as many new genres as I can. Non-fiction is a new genre for me.

    I don’t read a lot of celebrity bios/memoirs, but this does sound like it would be really fun! I’ll look for your review — maybe I’ll read it as well. 🙂
