"To use her phrase, this book is 'a hoot and a holler' - a fast-paced frolic that her fans will appreciate. (Publishers Weekly)
What a fun listen! Kristen performs this audiobook in her doll of a voice, and she had me in a smile and a giggle the whole way through. She's the best combo of down-home goodness and stage talent since Dolly Parton. Even though she's a star, it's her message that shines through: faith, family, and friends come first.

What 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, have dinner, and chat about day to day stuff.
What I Liked: Her friends, family, and moments that just made me giggle hysterically! I love that she tackled everything faith, failed relationships, the theater, her friends, and hair mishaps.
Audio Specific Review: Kristen read, sang, and giggled her way through reading this! It was fantastic and the way I would suggest getting this book.
Why I gave it a 4.5: It was 7 hours of just plain fun!
Who would I recommend it too: Kristin Chenoweth fans
I love Kristin Chenoweth and really enjoyed A Little Bit Wicked. I felt she did a great job narrating it herself and really making it interesting for the listeners. It was a great blend of humor, sadness, and faith. I love that she sticks to her beliefs in an industry that makes it really hard to stand up for what you believe. The only complaint I have is that it was too short. I could have listened to another 5 hours. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Kristin Chenoweth or even if you are not get it and become a fan.
Purchased this for two reasons;
1. Recommendation from TWIT guest
2. I love her voice and character in the TV series "West Wing"
Kristin's voice and dry sense of humor makes this book most enjoyable. Humor at ever turn and little tag lines throughout the book coupled with a behind the scenes look at what it really takes to make it on Broadway.
Reading this book felt like a kitchen table conversation with a friend....she is genuine and likeable and real. I like her.
I would for her Kristin's comic one liners and sense of humour. Her beautiful voice is wonderful as narrator.
The ending was more or less like the rest of the book. A solid story about her life in showbiz from her pageant days, and ballet classes right up until she was on our TV screens.
I have only ever watched her on TV in Pushing Daisies ,and Four Christmases and Deck The Halls. I think she is a lovely actress !!
Yes there was a few moments that were emotional. When she talked about her birth mother, and her adopted family , and when there was a death in the family, and she was on a plane when she got the news..I just wanted to give her a hug!!!
Kristin has just about the worst luck when she is flying .. I liked how she explained her treatment by staff on her flight. You never think it could happen to a celebrity. Her love for her adopted family is also worth a mention. It was very touching to listen to.
This got off to a rough start for me, since the first chapter mainly consisted of her complaining about air travel (not interesting) and talking about her big Southern family and how close they all are (I also have a big Southern family and I do not like it one bit, so I just could not connect). But once she started talking about her career, I was hooked. There were a few other chapters that felt a little weak, but for the most part, this was funny and very entertaining, and I looked forward to getting in the car everyday before and after work to listen to it, and am a little sad that it's over. This is my second celebrity autobiography in the last couple months, and I have surprisingly reeeeeally been enjoying them. Who knew? On to Julie Andrews!
Thank you Kristin Chenoweth for this amazing gift. She tells the story in a way that is all her own, her voice is soft, yet not at all boring, her wit is great, not overwhelming. If you are in doubt, think no more. This book was one of the best books I've heard from audible. Congratulations Kristin for writing it and reading it so marvelously!!!
I bought this in the hopes that it would be good listening for a few long drives. I couldn't wait to listen to it all! This is one of those books that is better presented as an audio. You are delivered the one liners with perfect timing. I have never watched Ms. Chenoweth do anything significant, only cameo work, but had a sense that she was a character. It's like she is sitting next to you in the car recounting her life thus far. Wonderul experience!
I have recently become a big fan of Kristin Chenoweth and listening to her biography only made me a bigger one! Candid, funny, and narrated by herself! I've listened to it twice already and loved every minute! From adoring fans to those who want an insight into someones journey to their own success I could not recommend this more!
