This is my last book review for this year! I’ll be back January 2nd with new and fun books. Have a safe and Happy New Year!
About I Still Want to Be an Astronaut
“I’ve always had a hard time figuring out where I fit in the scheme of things. It’s like a square-peg-in-a-round-hole situation, but worse. It’s more like I’m a weird, misshapen, octopus peg trying to fit into a rhomboid hole.”
James Perry didn’t plan to become an actor, comedian, or YouTube star—and he certainly didn’t aim to be known as the lobster bisque guy. But when he decided to take some time away from his “important” engineering job to goof off with Studio C, he discovered a fulfilling and meaningful purpose he’d been searching for all along.
Learn from James’s experience how to
• Build a boat with holes in it and still impress a girl
• Wear a large ball chain necklace as a kid and still become a normal person
• Turn a bully into a friend and/or bodyguard
• Get a part in a play because you look like a girl
• Love yourself and care for others and inevitably live your dream life
With characteristic humor and hilarious anecdotes, James explains that when it comes to finding your life’s purpose, wasting time might just be the best thing you can do.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love to read books about real people. And I love Studio C. How could I not want to read this one by James Perry. He’s one of our favorites on Studio C!
I loved the way he writes this book. He, of course, includes humor. I loved the way he talks about himself and his life. He really is such a humble guy. I feel like he’s gone through a lot of the same things that most of us have. But he sees things in a bit of a different way. And reading about the way he sees things helped me to see my life in a bit of a different way too.
This book is so great! If you like to read about other’s experiences, you’ll love it as much as I did!
I was sent an e-copy of I Still Want to Be an Astronaut by the publisher as a gift. All opinions are my own.
