With Thanksgiving break I took a little break from reading. But I had Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick ready to go. And once I started it was a quick read. I love Anna Kendrick – I’ve always thought she was very talented, funny, and seemed down to earth. Her book was not my favorite though. It was too scattered and random – stories that didn’t really connect. And she really drove into the ground that she’s still just a normal person. I can appreciate that she’s no Jennifer Aniston or Sandra Bullock or whoever is your favorite big name actress, but sorry, Anna, you’re certainly not a nobody. It was a little bit of a turn off. Overall, the stories were funny and entertaining, albeit a little disjointed and following abrupt or no transitions at times.
If you’ve enjoyed reading other women’s books – Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Amy Poehler – you may not enjoy this book. If you really like Anna Kendrick just know going into it that it’s not my top recommendation.
