To Read or Not to Read?

Unqualified by Anna Faris

I don’t know why I keep buying celebrity memoirs/autobiographies instead of just borrowing them from the library because I never seem to really like them all that much. I mean, there were some very interesting tidbits and heartwarming stories but a lot of time it’s like celebrities are like “hey look, I have awkward life experiences just like you!” but then they also go on to mention a day in their life which is nothing like what I’ve experienced.

It was also a little awkward because it’s very much a book about Anna Faris’s relationships and advice and there are lots of mentions of Chris Pratt who was her husband while she wrote most of the book. Quite a few of the passages were about them still being together but then she’d throw in a sentence or two there that were clearly added after the split so it kind of made me a little uncomfortable. I mean, I understand that life happens but it was kind of weird to read.

Also, I think I would have liked it a lot more if I’d have listened to her podcast that is more or less on the same subjects as the book because she referenced it a lot and a lot of the sections were kind of re-enactments of segments she said she’d done on the podcast, only with her as the one being interviewed instead of doing the interviewing.

But I will say it was one of the better written celebrity memoirs I’ve read so that’s something.
