This book nook is all about the wonderful memoir You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost) by Felicia Day. Now if you don’t know who Felicia Day is, she is a wonderful, quirky person who can be found mainly on the YouTube channel Geek and Sundry. I actually stumbled across her when I was going through the Tabletop game videos on the Geek and Sundry and saw her shows Co-Optitude (where she plays video games with her brother) and The Flog (where she steps out of her comfort zone to try new activities). When I heard about her new book coming out I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and give it a good flip through.
This book is a memoir for Felicia Day’s earlier years. The stories she covers are very real and extremely relatable. She really delves deep into issues that many have probably experienced, but no one really talks about. Having different interests than your peers, not really fitting in, struggling as an adult to find your niche, even working in the internet age with people who don’t really understand what you do. This book was honestly so well written. It was everything I could ever hope for in a memoir (okay I might be getting a little theatrical here, but it was honestly that good). It really added dimension to the quirky awesome girl I’d watch on YouTube. To know that she had gone through so much in her life really made me think about my own life and my goals for the future.
I would honestly recommend this You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost) to everyone. If you’re nerdy, geeky, odd, different, ever had issues fitting in, dealt with depression, or just love to read I suggest you pick up this book. I’m pretty sure you’ll love it (almost) as much as I do.
