You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) (Felicia Day)

From online entertainment mogul, actress, and “queen of the geeks” Felicia Day, a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet-stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood.

The Internet isn’t all cat videos. There’s also Felicia Day — violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world…or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet Geeks and Goodreads book clubs. 

After growing up in the south where she was “homeschooled for hippie reasons”, Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary. But Felicia’s misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an Internet star. 

Felicia’s short-ish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now, Felicia’s strange world is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism—just like her memoir. 

Hilarious and inspirational, You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now—even for a digital misfit.


I don’t think I can express adequately how much I loved this book… I loved it a lot!

I was roaming through my audible account one day, when I realized that Felicia Day’s book was already out, and that the audiobook was read by her, with a preface by Joss Whedon?! OMG, why the hell hadn’t I buy it already?! I did that as soon as I got home (a.k.a. WIFI!) and then I started to listen to this masterpiece.

Felicia’s life story is funny, weird, relatable, sad and amazing. It’s incredible, really, to listen to all these things that happened in her life, her successes, her insecurities, her troubles, depressions,… I laughed out loud, and cried my eyes out with this book, and at the end of it, I has a newfound respect for a person that I already had loads of respect and admiration for. Felicia Day is a Queen! She’s so smart and talented, and yet so vulnerable, … I love her a hell of a lot more now!

(again, so relatable!)

It also, finally, made me start to watch The Guild, I’m already finishing season 4…

(and inspiring!)

I would recommend this book to everyone. I loved the audiobook, Felicia has a special way of talking too fast that is just adorable and totally hers. But I do intend to buy the physical copy of this book, because I found it so inspiring, relatable, fascinating and weirdly awesome. Somehow, I feel like I know her better, almost like a friend (but not those creeps who stalked her, ok?).
