"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.
I found myself liking Kristin Chenoweth less and less as the book went on; she seemed to be writing to defend herself and promote "her side" of every story. I guess that is the point of a memoir, but it was a little grating. Also, the narrator mispronounced several common words, which made it seem like she hadn't even read the book before sitting down to record. Overall, I am disappointed that I spent a credit on this book.
I really enjoyed this book and didn't want it to end. Kristen is such a great narrator and I felt like she was a friend chatting with me. Only problem is I wanted more. I hope she does a continuation.
It is one of my top favorite books. I loved living vicariously through her as she shares her ups and downs in her life and career. I really didn't know very much about her and appreciated the honest way she told her story. It was hilarious and beautiful.
The funny names she gives everything and the fabulous way she reads her own book. I was so happy to hear that she was the performer.
She is a great performer and has her own unique way of delivering a great story. I didn't want it to end and was shocked when it did. That got us up to 2008...On to the next book?
When she was taking about the passing of her grandfather or nursing her mother in her time of need. What a great daughter and granddaughter.
I highly recommend this book and especially the audio version. I absolutely loved every minute of it.
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!
"Witty and funny with a great insight into the arts"
It is not a sci-if dramatic read by any sorts like I usually get, but I have an interest in dance and the arts, and I have seen the musical WICKED. This book oozes personality, charisma and is light hearted fun.
I liked the way that life experiences have been given a positive outlook. This is not a trait strongly known for British people like myself and it is inspiring to hear. I liked that the book had a LOT of content and details into the authors life. At times there was me,an holy and sadness which was noted but not described. Sometimes she wants to keep some personal things private which is a testament to the people in her life that she wants to speak about in her story, but not to expose them in any negative way.
The snippets about her singing teacher in her early days
Little lady, big voice; here comes Kirstin!
I don't particularly like chick flicks or love stories so this was my alternative. For anyone interested in Broadway or dance or singing or to personalities this would be great for you. It is inspirational written from a woman's perspective for women and girls everywhere. Although the journey is not 100% relatable (not all of us get to be Broadway stars), the life lessons learnt and the personal journey is very much so.
