You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)

Feb 24, Sh3lly rated it really liked it Shelves: read , gurrrl-power , 4-stars. I didn't really know who Felicia Day was before reading this. Vague things like, she was on Supernatural and did internet stuff. I've seen her in gifs posted and she's so darn cute and seems sweet and funny, so I read this. It reads mostly like an average memoir. I am not a "gamer," but was still able to keep up with the lingo and slang and stuff. Her background was interesting and I could relate to the discussions of her depression and anxiety. There were some inspirational parts.
She comes off I didn't really know who Felicia Day was before reading this. She comes off as charmingly neurotic - and very smart. I had no idea she could play the violin. She is very talented in many ways.

One thing I would have liked to read more about is experiences with the people she's worked with. I think everyone who reads a memoir wants to hear about that.
Not even in a "dishing the dirt" way, but just in general. She doesn't go into any of that. She mentions Supernatural only in passing and I was dying to hear about working with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. I'm sure she gets asked about it all the time, though. I also think the section on The Guild went on a bit too long.
See a Problem?
But I understand it. That was her baby and first big thing. Overall, I read this very quickly within 24 hours and was kept engaged for the most part throughout. Read for the MacHalo group reading challenge. A biography of your choice. View all 7 comments.

If so, where do you know her from? Personally, I am a crazy Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan since the age of 11, so I always knew her as that potential slayer in season 7. Other people may know her from the tv shows Eureka and Supernatural, or for her own show The Guild.
You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), Felicia Day: Book Review
So as I have mentioned in other reviews, I made a New Year's Resolution to read more types of books and genres other than romance this year as I used to read ALL genres at one point. So while I w 4 stars! So while I was watching Supernatural one day I saw this actress and thought, "Hey, didn't she write a book?
I lost track of the amount of times this book made me laugh. Felicia has a very strong and present voice, and I felt like I could hear her voice talking to me while I was reading. From her childhood being raised in homeschool, to her college experiences, and her efforts to make her show The Guild. My favorite part of this book was the parts about her childhood and college experience. I found I could relate to some of what she was going through, despite our very different upbringing. Some of the parts about gaming went way over my head, because I'm not a gamer.
Wish I was, but I am terrible at video games. They get too hard and I give up, hence I prefer books. If you're looking for a fun, quirky, different kind of reading experience, this is the book for you. Now I am off to go and watch The Guild. View all 15 comments.
