More: This is why we love Anna Kendrick and her candid tweets

The actress, known for her witty and confident attitude, is taking her tone to the pages, announced she's writing a collection of essays about her life, including her well-known projects like Twilight and Pitch Perfect, and also the time before she was a well-known actress growing up in Maine.

"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," Kendrick joked in a statement from book publisher, Touchstone.

"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 guess I feel like this is a great idea," Kendrick continued. "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!"

If this is what the whole book will read like, I'm in!

Now hopefully Kendrick will spend the next year using her Twitter wit as a hub to give us sneak peeks of the stories she's planning for the book.
