Reading Challenge - Book 11

I picked this book because I've had a bit of a girl-crush on Anna Kendrick since falling in love with all the Pitch Perfect movies. Can't wait til this August for the newest one! So it follows that I've counted this book for the 36th category of the Pop Sugar Reading Challenge - a book written by someone you admire. Her snark is out of the park and I love it!

Scrappy Little Nobody is an autobiography by Anna Kendrick. I loved hearing about her modest beginnings, and life-long dreams of acting and singing. Her Broadway start and continual casting as a child because of her petite stature was amusing, and her voice in telling it sounds like so many of her sassy characters.

The book has also given me a list of more Anna Kendrick movies to enjoy. Hubby and I had already seen Cake, both Pitch Perfect movies (repeatedly), Into the Woods, Trolls, and the Accountant (to name just a few), but once I read of her working on a few other movies, we also checked out Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Camp. I also now want to see Rocket Science, Life after Bex, and Up in the Air soon.

I've been really enjoying a lot of books turned into movies lately, and reading an autobiography of an actress sort of brings it to a whole new level - I have a bunch of movies to watch if I'll ever catch up with what was mentioned. LOL
