It's the best when authors narrate their own books!

I wish I had read this before I met Felicia Day at the Edmonton Comic Expo. She was delightful and adorable then, but having read this book about her anxiety and insecurities, I would have appreciated her a lot more.

I read through this book rather quickly and with great intensity. Felicia Day provides information on how to deal with all services of the internet, such as Twitter, the latest technological advancements in cellular phones, and of course e-mails. She also mentions on how to deal with those who write and post negative comments about performances they do. The funniest source of information I read in this book was when she pasted a picture of her self as Xena Warrior Princess and called her self Felicia Warrior Violinist. Then, she taped all these pictures all over the college she was attending at the time.

As someone who has recently found out that I was a geek in the sixties when Geeks were only in the circus, I thought this might be interesting. I enjoy reading biographies and memoirs even of people I've never heard of. But I didn't get through the introduction. I found that most of the memoirs I truly enjoy talk as much if not more about people other than the author and events and the times in which they lived, than the author herself. Unfortunately, this author makes it clear that she is very self-absorbed, and truly enjoys the company of people who like living vicariously through her writing. I guess it's a product of the she's a celebrity because she's a celebrity Society. Not my cup of tea.

An amazing look into the life of someone who is unapologetically weird and a reminder that we should all embrace the geekiness of life.

Having known of Felicia Day only through an episode or two of The Guild, and Dr. Horrible, I found listening to this audiobook a delight. Felicia is so honest, quirky, and real, that I found myself nodding along at multiple times. Her awkwardness is endearing. And it doesn't hurt that she reads the book herself, bringing that much more authenticity to the experience.

Felicia is also far more talented than I knew--a violinist and math whiz, as well as gamer girl, writer, actress, and producer! A highly recommended listen.

I LOVED this book!
This is the first memoir I've ever read, and practically the first non-fiction book I've read for fun. I stick almost exclusively to YA sci-fi/fantasy, so I wasn't sure if I could get into a memoir, but I picked it up because of Reading Without Walls. AND I'M SO GLAD I DID. I was completely riveted the whole time. I couldn't read in the same room as my sister because I'd keep laughing out loud, giving her a knowing look, then saying, "You'll just have to read it."
I identify with Felicia so much it hurts. It felt like reading something from a best friend.

Being a fan of the Guild and having watched Felicia Day on Youtube for some time, this book did not disappoint. It was quirky, funny, honest and hearing her read it provided an awesome connection to the author.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it talks about Felicia Day's entire life. From being homeschooled, graduating college, her rags-to-riches professional success, and going on to becoming the actress that she is today. Plus I read this book more than once it is a very enjoyable book to read because it a auto biography book that talks about a celebrity's entire life on how they got started and how she became the person that she is today.

I feel like this book is a transcript of a conversation had between two best girlfriends over a glass (or two) of wine. Felicia writes so amiably, you'll feel like you've known her for years.

This book gives an insight into a certain personality type that I can more than relate to. I was seeing my own fear, insecurities, and self-doubts coming at me from the pages in full-force. Day opens the door to some pretty difficult subjects with humor and honesty. which is a welcome change to similar titles I've read. Her awkward conversational fumbles had me cringing and recalling my own social blunders, but hey, we're all in this together, right?

While I wouldn't say this book is one by a women FOR women, my boyfriend was a fan of it as well, but I feel like a lot of us ladies of the nerdy persuasion can use a little extra encouragement that things do get better. We are not our forced social encounters, our anxieties, or our struggles just to feel happy. We like what we like, and we have the power to let our geek flags fly. We can ride off into the sunset atop our rainbow unicorns with our feminists heads held high. Okay, maybe that's a stretch, but seriously, we got this, girls. Let Felicia be your guide to never giving up.
