Get your phone alerts ready, Amy Poehler is writing a book that will drop in 2014. This should also be known as your new favorite book of all time. Poehler signed with It Books, an imprint of Harper Collins and will be writing an “illustrated, nonlinear diary full of humor and honesty and brimming with true stories, fictional anecdotes and life lessons.”
Poehler’s already been giving advice and life lessons through her video series, “Ask Amy,” so I’m expecting some excellent stuff in her upcoming book. But don’t expect to get any dieting advice from her. She recently told Entertainment Tonight, that she doesn’t care about diets for awards season at all because she’s too tired.
In a statement, It Books editor, Carrie Thornton said she was “blown away by [Poehler’s] creativity and her passion.”
Make sure to set aside some room next to your copy of Tina Fey’s Bossypants because that’s where Poehler’s book is going to go on your bookshelf.
