I first encountered Felicia Day in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog way back in the dark ages of 2008. You might know her from Supernatural, The Guild, Eureka, or one of her many other projects. Maybe you just know her name, or maybe you haven’t heard of her at all. That’s fine. I don’t think you really need to know who she is to enjoy this book.
In her memoir, Felicia talks about her non-traditional upbringing, her time as a sixteen-year-old in college, her struggles to break into the acting world, her World of Warcraft addiction, her anxiety, and what she’s done with her time in recent years. Throughout the whole book, her tone is conversational, almost like two friends sitting down for coffee.
The book can be serious and it can be funny. There are some sections that drag a little bit, but the majority is entertaining and well-paced. If you’re into celebrity memoirs (or Felicia Day), you can’t go wrong with You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost).
Final rating: ★★★★☆
