Anna Kendrick launches her book tour with a beautiful message that we need right now

We’ve had a dark couple of days this week, and yesterday our world was filled with beautifully painful words to help pick our shattered hearts up off the floor. It feels so strange to get back to everyday life, but we know it must be done. Even celebs like Anna Kendrick, who starts her book tour for Scrappy Little Nobody this week, have to return to work. But we so appreciate Anna, because as we start another dark day, she provides us with a message that makes us smile. Okay, we admit it, smile while still tearing up a little.

Anna Kendrick posted the final paragraph of her book, and it makes us smile.

"I hope that you have found this entertaining and maybe (my highest goal) it has made you feel less alone. If we ever cross paths I hope you have a good experience. I will try to be open and not squirrelly. I can't promise I'll be nice because nice isn't really who I am. Pygmy ferret cornered and ready for a fight is more like it."

Aww, we couldn’t possibly love Anna more, but this paragraph is actually perfect. And right now, we totally relate to her “pygmy ferret cornered and ready for a fight” vibe as we deal with this week’s events.

Of course, along with her chapter, Anna posted a heartfelt message that made us feel a little better.

"I am about to get on a plane to start my book tour. I am feeling very weird about it. It feels icky and wrong to engage in self-promotion right now. Or even to push humor on people. ("Welp, in other news, my book!" - ugh.) But, two things: 1. I want to fulfill my obligations to be where I said I'd be, and not let anyone down. 2. My goals for this book were to make people laugh, to feel connected to people, and maybe get people to feel more connected to me. This is the final paragraph of my book (which obviously I hadn't planned to share before it was out). I hope it illustrates just how excited I am to spend time with you gorgeous weirdos who are coming out to this tour over the next few weeks. I love you all so much. I have always been just a silly person, peddling my silly wares, and I hope that as I do that over the coming days I get to feel more and more inspired by you. (P.S. those two asterisks do have attached jokes; maybe by the 15th we'll all be ready for a good laugh.) For now, what books are you guys currently reading? X"

We definitely relate to Anna’s feelings that self-promotion and humor feels weird. But she’s right that we need to focus on our connections to other people. And Anna’s message of love and support definitely make us smile. We love her for being a silly person peddling silly wears, and we hope she never stops doing it.

Scrappy Little Nobody will be available November 15th.

And at a time like this, we will take as much of Anna’s silly weirdness as we can get.

We love you, Anna! We can’t wait to read Scrappy Little Nobody!
