You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day
This memoir is exactly what I would expect from the “Queen of Geeks” herself. It’s like you’ve opened up her quirky, creative, awesome brain to see how it works complete with fun little illustrations. It’s got the feel of a very long modern blog post but with all the honesty and heart of a traditional memoir. Ms. Day opens up about her homeschooled childhood, her battles with depression and anxiety, and her enormous success in carving out a career doing what she loves. Her voice shines through the entire book with humility, courage, inspiration and geekiness. It was an absolute joy to read and a nice reminder that being weird is something for which we all can be proud!
Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography
Just like the man himself, Neil Patrick Harris’ autobiography is one-of-a-kind. Written in the style of the classic “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, the reader gets to live out their own version of Neil’s life whether that is hosting the Tony Awards, playing Doogie Howser and Barney Stinson or going to Whitecastle with Harold and Kumar. His prose is quirky, funny and ever so cool. This autobiography is polished and thoroughly captivating just as I would expect from such a consummate entertainer. I would recommend reading this book in paper rather than e-format because it will be easier to flip back and forth through the adventure. So, if you want to read a delightful book about Neil Patrick Harris, go get this book. If none of the previous sentiments have convinced you to go read this book, go away and check your definition of fun.
