Book Review

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG. I have a girl-crush on Mindy Kaling. No. I have an actual crush on Mindy Kaling. Honestly, this book is hilarious. I saw Mindy speak at BEA in New York this past spring. She introduced Jeffrey Eugenides, Charlaine Harris and Diane Keaton at an author breakfast, and (though I secretly went specifically to see Charlaine Harris because I am a huge fan of Sookie Stackhouse) I thought Mindy was so funny and eloquent, and she really was the best part of the whole thing. (I felt so sad when Diane got choked up!)

I read the excerpt of this book, which I received at the breakfast, and I was so excited to read the rest. I kept reading passages to my husband and laughing in the middle of them so that he eventually had to hide out from me until I finished. The pictures are priceless. And no, it’s not Tina Fey’s book, but it might just be a super close second…..just kidding, Mindy. You Rock! Not that you will read this and even if you did, you’d be like “gee, another awesome review of my book, *Yawn*.)

But I hope you don’t.  ❤
