Book Club

Mindy Kaling seems to be everywhere these days. The fall cover of Domino, streaming on Hulu, selling out a book signing in Brookline in minutes {sorry we missed this, Jamie}. It looks like this Boston girl has certainly made it. I have to say, I loved her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me. Upon completion, I just knew Mindy and I could be best friends. And so, when her second book Why Not Me hit book shelves on September 15, I knew I had to pick myself up a copy. Truth be told, I was a little worried it wouldn’t live up to the first but I’m happy to report, it does!

This collection of short stories {really personal essays} is broken into four categories: For the Ladies, Take This Job and Love It; Love, Dating, and Boys Who Ru(i) the World; and All The Opinions You Will Ever Need.

My favorite stories: Mindy As A Sorority GirlOne of the President’s Men; Soup Snakes and Why Not Me. Throughout these stories, Mindy let’s her true self shine through… vulnerable, anxious, worried, and sometimes lonely. Looking for an easy, up-lifting read? Pick up Why Not Me. The diagram on the back cover of Mindy’s heart is worth the money alone!

“Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn’t always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine.”
