We love everything about Anna Kendrick. What's not to love. Now she has gone and released a book and let's face it , it will be hard to wait until November to read it!

Here's a bit about her book
Anna Kendrick’s autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses today.

Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick’s essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

Here's a excerpt Anna shared with her many followers on Instagram
"Sometimes I like to run around photo shoots all carefree and wild, as a layer of protection. When I stay still, and focus all my attention and energy on being the best little model I can be and still I get looks of disappointment and confusion because I don’t look like Kendall Jenner, it hurts my tiny feelings. (No one should be compared to Kendall Jenner. It’s cruel and unusual.) So I run around a little. I’m not an un-photographable troll! I’m just a little scamp who’s not focused!"

Scrappy Little Nobody will be released in November. You can pre-order the book in Australia here and in the UK here.
