    1. I am a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth so this was definitely a treat for me to read I listen to the soundtrack for Wicked on my iPod all the time I only wish I would have seen her perform as Glinda in Wicked live with Idina Menzel But nonetheless, she was my favorite character on Pushing Daisies as Olive Snook Oh, and did I mention her fabulous cameo on Glee to die for So I couldn t help but picking up this book in order to get insider information on this tiny with a very big voice gal.The moment [...]

    2. I don t normally venture into the non fiction section of a bookstore unless by accident, but when I spotted Kristin Chenoweth s memoir A Little Bit Wicked I knew that I had to read it because 1 I love all things Wicked although it does not dominate her story and 2 I fell in love with Kristin Chenoweth when she played Olive Snook in Pushing DaisiesE GOOD BITS A little slice goes a long way I loved the format of this book Yes, Kristin Chenoweth goes in chronological order, but it never felt that w [...]

    3. After reading this book, I want to shake Kristen Chenoweth by the shoulders and say, Listen, honey, life isn t that great Cheer down Seriously I love Kristin Chenoweth s perky, upbeat personality But in a book length autobiography, there is a thin line between perkiness and superficiality, and this book seems to cross it Chenoweth is a highly successful singer and entertainer, but there is little sense of the struggles, headaches, and rejections that a young girl from Oklahoma must have dealt wi [...]

    4. Bought on AudibleActual Rating 4.5 Wine GlassesWhat I Loved Kristin Chenoweth is just such a delightful personality She has great stories from her life both professionally and personally I don t feel like she held anything back She does it with such poise, humor, and a little wink nudge to her friends This was like getting a glimpse into what I think is one of the most down to earth celebrities there is today It might be her southern roots but you just feel like she is someone you could sit down [...]

    6. Things Kristin Chenoweth and I have in common a life long affection for The Sound of Music and a deep and abiding love for all things Aaron Sorkin Where we part She s met Julie Andrews and slept with Aaron Sorkin Damn But its the first two traits that got me to read this book that and the fact that it was a 1.50 at a local book sale and my book budget has recently gone, well, on a budget This is the first of my GoodReads reviews and I can t say I would have started with this book if given a choi [...]

    7. Everyone who knows me knows that Kristin Chenoweth is my all time favorite actress in the entire world Everytime something of hers is on, or I find new stuff about her I buy it So when I heard that she was coming out with an autobiography, it was all I talked about for weeks Sadly I did not get it for my birthday, or Christmas that year, and I found myself having to read it at the library since I did not have it.Well I read it and I loved it I kept getting looks from people in the library becaus [...]

    8. Is Kristin Chenoweth the cutest thing ever I sort of want to fold her up and put her in my pocket, so I can take her out when I m sad or bored and she can sing me show tunes to cheer me up And perhaps she could introduce me to her delicious Pushing Daisies may it RIP costar Lee Pace.Anywho, I enjoyed A Little Bit Wicked a lot Listening to Chenoweth ramble on about her life on Broadway and in Hollywood was a joy all of her spunk and personality came through in this book I think it s best listened [...]

    9. It was really enlightening to read about a successful actress who so strongly sticks to her roots in faith and family She holds tight to her beliefs no matter how harshly she is criticized for it She is also very funny and optimistic, so her book is a light and cheerful read It was a little confusing to keep track of the details as she jumps around a lot in time I also wish she had spent a little time on Wicked But overall I liked this book and it made me like Kristin even

    10. A confection of a memoir I had hoped for insight, especially into how her beliefs make a difference in her career Chenoweth skims lightly over the surface of her chosen episodes, and even her pain is depicted with a fairly light touch The anecdotes are mostly entertaining, but I didn t finish with the feeling I knew her any better.

    11. I really did not know who Kristin Chenoweth was, I never saw West Wing or her in Wicked but her book was very honest, entertaining and written with the tone that I just enjoyed She is full of faith and grace and I admire that I ll watch for her now in entertainment and am much apt to try something that she is a part of.

    13. I read this via audiobook, which I would recommend because Chenoweth is a great narrator The book starts out a bit slow, but overall was an enjoyable read I m a singer and performed in theatre growing up, so learning about her background and training and the decisions she made along the way to get her where she is today was really interesting I mainly picked this up because I wanted to use this title for an adjective choice in my ER Madlibs Reading Challenge this year, but I m glad I read it 3.5 [...]

    14. It was a lot of fun, frothy and light There s a lot of talk about her faith, so don t read it if that bothers you, and it actually might have bothered me not the fact of it, just reading about it but her sense of humor, and I think maybe of faith, is almost exactly like a friend of mine s from high school, so it just made me want to recommend it to her, which I already have Quotes After going down too hard while trying to do the splits The official diagnosis was a fractured coccyx I also pulled [...]

    15. I listened to A Little Bit Wicked a while ago, so I don t remember much of the story.I do know that Kristin is a great narrator She made me laugh when I really didn t think I would Hearing her giggle always made me grin One of favorite parts was listening to her talking about her weave drama You don t mess around with hair And her beauty queen drama was funny Every time she mentioned the HUGE, HUGE show named Kristin, I smiled Any other time something like that would have annoyed me but she made [...]

    17. I m a fan of this Broadway TV movie actress who originated the part of Glinda in Wicked I ve never seen her in an interview maybe I ll try to find some on the internet but from her book I imagine that she s a whirlwind Crowned Miss Congeniality at the Miss Oklahoma beauty pageant, accused of being so freaking happy all the time, she s spunky, definitely intelligent, educatedd I m sure charming and delightfuld exhausting No, just kidding It took me a while to get used to her styleLots of sound ef [...]

    18. I am glad Ms Chenoweth did the reading for her book I know, who else would have I just read a few negative reviews, and it seems to me people were annoyed that 1 Ms Chenoweth doesn t agree with them the way they thought she would or 2 the book is not about her being in Wicked.No, the book is not about her being in Wicked It s about her being Kristin Chenoweth.The book is, in fact, disjointed if your reference point is an encyclopedia article, but we can already get those I liked hearing Ms Cheno [...]

    19. I haven t read many celebrity memoirs, and I m not really familiar with Kristin Chenoweth s TV shows, movies, or singing I was intrigued by an interview with her I read in a gay magazine and by her self description as a liberal Christian The memoir, which is co written with Joni Rodgers, is breezy and funny Chenoweth is self deprecating and relentlessly optimistic, along the lines of when God closes a door He opens a window Towards the end it is too full of name dropping about various costars an [...]

    20. This was a very witty and charming book, I only knew kristin from Pushing Daisies and Four Christmases , and I loved her in those programs movies Kristin has a real way with words, and I spent many moments gigglng away to this audiobook.Kristin is an all round entertainer and I did not know that before this book Growing up she enjoyed ballet and entering pagents, later types of dance and singing and acting Broodway was calling to her from a young age and it seemed to be obvious to those closest [...]

    21. To quote George Gershin, S wonderful S marvelous I would hope this book would be what Gershwin would want to read if he was obviously still alive.I don t want this book to be just this one I want this book to be many books I want it to be a science fiction novel, a horror novel, a book of jokes, a book of plays, a book of everything that has ever been put into a book This made me of a fan of Kristin Chenoweth than I already was, having seen her in The West Wing my favorite TV show ever and Push [...]

    22. This was an entertaining, light read about someone I really admire both personally and professionally There were many parts that made me laugh, think, and quote to my family as I was reading it and I m glad I did.There were some nice insights into the entertainment business and I really enjoyed hearing about her career and life in general.You can tell that she is a singer and actress, not a writer and though I m sure Joni helped, I still found the narrative somewhat confusing, as it tended to ju [...]

    23. I breezed through this light autobiography in about one day sitting on the beach I d recommend Kristin Chenowith s musings for a very specific population people who love Broadway, Aaron Sorkin, Pushing Daisies and the South If that describes you as it does me , you might want to curl up with this book.More of a collection of thoughts than a serious autobiography, this book touches on both the successes and the challenges Chenowith faced as she broke into show business She s surprisingly forthcom [...]

    24. As a fan of Kristin I absolutely loved it The book looks back on her life, her career, her journey as a struggling actor in New York fresh out of college in Oklahoma, her days in Wicked, and wise words and advice for young actors from Cool Aunt Kristin It was incredibly interesting to me to understand where she came from and what she went through to become the star that she is She has a good old fashioned small town girl moves to New York City, lives in a tiny apartment and ACTUALLY MAKES IT sto [...]

    25. I ll admit I m a fan of Kristin Chenoweth, mainly from Wicked, but also from Pushing Daises and her performance in the made for TV movie Annie I also like her as a person She s fully of positive energy and faith Would I read a book like this again Only if I REALLY like the celebrity who wrote the book enough.I will note I liked that she goes into the fact she is a huge believer in her Christian faith For some people this might be a turn off She talks about at the end how some people don t really [...]

    26. This book was disappointing She says right at the very end that it s not a tell all autobiography but a little slice autobiography and I kind of wish she d said that at the beginning I love her voice and she seems like a nice lady and all but the book meanders she ll mention someone in passing and then two chapters later talk about how she met that person Sometimes she ll start telling something juicy and then stop and you never hear of that again Overall, this is kind of a big what is the point [...]

    27. I appreciated the stories from her life and for the most part her sense of humour What I didn t appreciate was how many times she says she loves everyone, yet then said and did things to the contrary It wouldn t have bothered me so much if she didn t repeatedly talk about how she s a Christian and how she loves everyone And yet, she said some pretty hateful things toward German people, and she mercilessly ridiculed one flight attendance s physical appearance when she felt the flight attendant wa [...]

    28. Olive Snook was and remains my favorite TV character which is why I wanted to grab Kristin s biography I knew Kristin was a broadway babe who d played Galinda and who could sing her tiny heart out but I was interested in learning about this spunky actress Unfortunately, from my perspective, this biography fell a little flat I loved page 160 238 the end basically, but I struggled with the out of order story telling Something in me craves the chronological There wasn t enough back story and side [...]

    29. In the same vein as Tina Fey s bossypants, this had me laughing out loud at moments A fun, little snack cake of a book, I couldn t put it down stop listening Hearing Kristen read it herself was JUST the thing, I couldn t imagine it any other way She her personality at least leapt off the page, and tap danced right in front of me, so familiar like an old friend over coffee Just enough meat to make it worth reading she shares some hard moments, and some really good life lessons but overall an upli [...]

    30. I usually love an audiobook narrated by the author, but even the audio book couldn t save this one Throughout the story of Kristin s lifee went from being a vocal icon of mine just a good voice with a personality that lacks any sort of depth In the book, she goes through her life, describing lost loves that you start to realize is all because she is so in love with herself I can t even say it is that she is in love with her careerbut truly is herself Less than impressed I still love her voice, b [...]
