Show Us Your Books: June to July

It’s the second Tuesday of the month, so it’s time to link up for Show Us Your Books!

Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick (3 out of 5 Stars)

via

You know, I waited months for this book, and by the time I finally could get it from the library, I was underwhelmed. I enjoyed hearing about her Broadway days and what goes on behind the scenes of awards shows. Oh, and I was a fan of her dream holiday parties. But overall, it just rubbed me the wrong way. Kind of like she was trying to say certain things just for the shock value? Still, I’m an AK fan, so I’m glad that she took the time to write the book.

I’m in the middle of a book now for Erin’s Book Challenge, and hopefully I’ll have more than one book to review for next month!

  1. I’ve heard from a few other people that the AK book was just forced and not genuine. It might have to come off my list.

  2. I liked Scrappy Little Nobody but I listened to her read it on audio, and I’m not sure I would have liked it as much if I had read it.

  3. It’s a bummer when you wait for a book and then it ends up just being okay– at least it wasn’t a total flop though! Book challenges are great for motivating you to prioritize reading sometimes- can’t wait to see what you read next.

  4. It always happens that when you build up so much anticipation for a book its just bleh. ive started to go into books with open expectations no matter if everyone says they like or hate it lol

  5. i liked Anna’s book but I think I was underwhelmed overall as well. I did not like the dream holiday parties lol. i didn’t hate the book, i just.. eh. i don’t know. there were funny parts!

  6. I dont really know Anna Kendrick very well, so I skipped over this one but I know from some of the other “star” books I have read…they can fall a little short for me. Like Mindy’s second book was a little forced to me and too much like her first.
