This is what we've been waiting for!

Anna Kendrick is publishing a book of autobiographical essays, it was announced Thursday by her publisher Touchstone.

In a statement, Touchtone says they are excited to work with the 29-year-old actress because she "is the rare entertainer whose impressive arsenal of talents is equally matched by her sharp wit and wry observations about life."

"I'm excited to publish my first book," Anna said of the book deal, "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."
