She also owns an internet production company called Geek & Sundry, and if you like reading girly books, she runs the book club (and goodreads group) called Vaginal Fantasy.

Although I love her on Supernatural, she is much more than just the geeky cute girl. :)(less)

A couple months ago, a little bird on the internet let me know that Felicia Day was writing a memoir.

And honestly? I didn't know how to feel about that.

Don't get me wrong, I was happy for her. I love books, and it makes me happy when one of my friends is writing one. It makes me even happier when one of their books is getting published. It's like they're getting to have a baby but with only a fraction of the nausea and weight gain.

What's more, I'm a fan of Felicia's. She's done a lot of work t
Updated September 11, 2015: Before I get too far into this review, I just want to state, for the record, Felicia Day has said that she does not really like being dubbed ‘The Queen of the Internet’ or ‘The Queen of the Geeks’ or whatever crown we the people want to bestow upon her, but the fact that she comes unwillingly to power only makes her more worthy, honestly. I do feel a bit bad about potentially making her feel more anxious over this responsibility we’ve all thrust on her, but she’s so a ...more

A funny, honest, and surprisingly brave book. As many reviewers have noted, Felicia Day doesn’t shy away from candid discussion of issues like anxiety and the extreme amount of pressure she puts on herself at times, which I think can be tremendously inspirational for readers dealing with the same issues in their daily lives. What resonated for me was her journey from a math and violin prodigy to actress and Internet pioneer. This isn’t a point she made explicitly, but it takes a tremendous amoun ...more

In a nutshell: A fun memoir about growing up, internet fame, anxiety and nerdiness!

I've been into biographies/memoirs lately and I thought that reading this one would be a good opportunity to inspire myself to finally get into more Felicia Day-related things. As my dad said when I picked this up, "well you do share the same surname and you're both on the internet." I feel like I know a lot of her from Tumblr and by reading her Goodreads revi

1. More pre-teen Felicia Day game poetry.
2. A section on that time Felicia Day took "sexy" photos to send to boys she met on the internet.
3. Those photos included.


UPDATE: Hey, everything I wanted was in the book! Glad I choose audio too, it was great hearing the stories from her own voice.

Reading this book confirmed my suspicion that Felicia Day is a manic pixie dream girl. But I mean that as a compliment.

Felicia is funny and clever and a little weird. So it makes sense that her memoir is also funny and clever and a little weird.

Felicia writes about her unusual childhood, how she was homeschooled and was an early adopter of the Internet and role-playing games, that she was a violin prodigy and started going to college when she was only 16, and about her acting career.

My favorite

I didn't really know who Felicia Day was before reading this. Vague things like, she was on Supernatural and did internet stuff. I've seen her in gifs posted and she's so darn cute and seems sweet and funny, so I read this.

It reads mostly like an average memoir. I am not a "gamer," but was still able to keep up with the lingo and slang and stuff. Her background was interesting and I could relate to the discussions of her depression and anxiety. There were some inspirational parts. She comes off

So this was the first memoir I enjoyed from beginning to end. (Normally I get bored at one point or another) but Felicia's story really made me laugh a lot, her narrating (I listened to the audiobook alongside the physical copy) is really pleasant to listen to ( I can't with audiobooks where the narrator has a squeaky or scratchy voice... I just have troubles following what they are saying, so eventually... If they haven't got a good narrating voice... I'll stop listening) and most important of ...more

Excruciatingly honest memoir from Felicia Day about her quirky childhood, gaming addiction, cultural attitudes online, and life long struggle with anxiety and other mental health issues. She reminded me a great deal of Jenny Lawson in her straight forward presentation of difficult topics and also in her exuberant storytelling style. And, in many other ways, she reminded me of myself.

Being a female gamer is hard. There, I've said it. Not only do your female friends not want to play video games wi
