Monthly Favorites: February 2018

I had nine really highly-rated books in February, so I decided to mix things up and pick one book from four different genres! I hope all my months going forward have so many great books.

New Adult: The Beau & the Belle by R.S. Grey
Young Adult: Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett (overall winner!)

Nonfiction: You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
Adult Fiction: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

What’s the best book you read in February?

Book review: You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

Goodreads ⭐ Amazon ⭐

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: ★★★★☆
