A Hilarious Book

Books have an awesome way of taking us away from our stressful day and transporting us to a different world. I usually gravitate towards crime and drama novels, but right now I’m reading Mindy Kaling’s book “Why Not Me?” and LOVING it. I feel like I am listening to my best friend who is hilarious and so down-to-earth as I read it.

First of all, let’s state the obvious – Mindy Kaling is awesome and hilarious. But what I love most about her is she has remained true to herself throughout her career. You can tell as you read her book that she has a strong sense of who she is. She also maintains this careful balance of self-deprication and confidence.


Now enough of about my girl-crush, let’s get back to the book. “Why Not Me?” is a great, easy read for vacation or if you’d like to pretend you are on vacation, like me! Kaling talks about everything from her show The Mind Project, which has a new season airing soon on Hulu, to her thoughts on sororities and sharing a list of things she can no longer do since she became famous.

I found Kaling’s writing style really refreshing. It seems like her personality really shines through the words. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Mindy Kaling.

“The best kind of laughter is laughter born of a shared memory.”

“Remember the kid who showed up forty-five minutes early to the SATs with eleven pencils and a huge black coffee? That was me.”

“Hell is Whole Foods on a Sunday. It’s hordes of moms in lightweight fleeces pushing one another away to get to bins of dry lentils.”

“This was the kind of place that a girl could leave her glass slipper with the reasonable hope that a prince might track her down. Or, in my case, my Jimmy Choo size 39s with orthotic inserts.”

“I tip great, I try not to swear to much, and I remember to thank people and be grateful. And all that stuff I do to “appear” better has actually made me a better person. I wish I had always acted like I was a little bit famous.”

Let me know if you have read any hilarious books recently too.

Cheers to the week being over halfway complete!
