Read in December, 2012

I ordered this book a week ago and I have already finished reading it. It is not very long (220 pages) and is an easy read with lots of laugh out loud moments. Is it Bossypants? No. Mindy's humor is much drier then Feys', but the subject matter is uniquely Kaling and I think anybody under the age of 35 must read it.

Instead of taking her life in chronological order, Mindy instead separates the book into a series of essays. Here are some of my favorites:

(1) The essay on the Alternative Titles for This Book, my favorite being "Harry Potter Secret Book #8."

(2) Best Friends Rights and Responsibilities, the most important of which I think is "I Will Try To Like Your Boyfriend Five Times."

(3) Revenge Fantasies While Jogging wherein Mindy describes her favorite...okay, just read this one.

Oh, and the eulogy for her at the end of her book wherein she dies by getting impaled by a heel of a christian louboutin peep tow slingback is pretty funny too...

Jen any good so far? It sounds hilarious!

Melissa I am about halfway through! It is good, but not as good as Bossypants...
