Book Club!!


Today is Book Club Friday!

To link up, all you have to do is grab the button (above) and link up (below)!

You can write about any book you want.

This week I'm sharing...


Here is the synopsis:
Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

Here are my thoughts:
Mindy Kaling is hilarious.  I've always been a fan of hers as an actress & writer on The Office.  And if we're being completely honest, I read the entire book in Kelly Kapoor's voice.  I loved reading the behind the scenes details of The Office & all of her hilarious antics.

What are you currently reading?

I keep picking this book up and setting it back down. I'm not a huge memoir fan, but she is hilarious. Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and read the book.

I tried to get this one in my book club for July but no one voted for it :( Which is surprising because so many of them watch the Office.
