Billie Eilish is trying to be a book nerd, perhaps with not much success. However, the 21-year-old is super successful in her musical talents. Right from a young age, she won several accolades, including multiple Grammy Awards, and became the youngest headliner for Glastonbury. While several of her songs already created a massive fan base, she replaced Ed Sheeran to sing the theme song for James Bond No Time To Die.
The singer is not only known for her angelic voice but also for the deep and relatable meanings behind her songs. Both she and her brother Finneas Eilish write often work to write the lyrics together. But the elder sibling recently took on social media to troll his younger sister over her book reading.
Fans relate as Finneas O’Connell trolls Billie Eilish for failing to read a book
For Billie Eilish, it’s the thought that counts. Her music partner and elder brother Finneas Eilish recently took on Twitter to quote his sister, “I actually thought about reading a book yesterday!”, and wrote her name at the end. Twitteratis could not help but relate to Eilish’s situation. @CrankGameplays, who is a fellow musician, commented how he also has a book and is hoping to read it. While others opened up about how they also habitually buy books, only to leave them untouched and unopened.
I bought a book yesterday! We’ll see what happens to it!

I would love for her to read Emily Dickinson's poems and then be inspired by that to make a song https://t.co/SPB8MJuKWw

One commentator posted a video of Eilish laughing loudly with another person who was likely her brother. Most fans began recommending books to her. It included anything from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo to Emily Dickinson’s poem. One fan even suggested she read her own autobiography called Billie Eilish.
The book was released on May 11, 2021, describing both the personal and professional journey of the singer. Although it is unsure whether she wrote it herself or hired a ghostwriter as celebrities often do. Brother O’Connell made sure that she knew that he was putting her quote on Twitter, as they laughed while he posted it.
Perhaps she is not the biggest bookworm out there, but the entertainer tried, just like her followers. The Happier Than ver singer recently appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine, sharing her thoughts on the planet, justice, and more.
Can you relate to her struggle with reading? Comment your thoughts.
