Hooray! Anna Kendrick is writing a book. The actress has signed a deal with Touchstone publishers, to write a collection of humorous, autobiographical essays. We cannot wait.

The Pitch Perfect star is expected to write about her life, from growing up in Maine, USA, to scoring roles in huge films like Twilight, Into The Woods and Up In The Air.

“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself" she said.

"And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!”.

Anna’s book is yet to be named, and won’t be released until Autumn 2016. However, if her hilarious tweets and impecable sarcasm are anything to go by, the book will definitely be worth the wait.
