Most of you are probably coming to this blog to check out the newest outfit post, and thank you for that, but today I'm venturing into other interests. Why? Well, because it's my blog and because I can :)
I'm a big Mindy Kaling fan. Not only do I find her hilarious—if you like sitcom humor like I do and you haven't given The Mindy Project a watch, I'd recommend you drop the rest of you're weekend plans put your pjs on and spend the rest of it binge watching—but I find her relatable and would like to think we could be friends in another world. The kind that you'd love to be around because they are always lively and chatty or the kind that you can't stand to be around because seriously turn it down a bit and how is it possible to talk that much? Either way, I'd take it. But, about what got me on this tangent anyway. I just finished Mindy's new book Why Not Me? and loved it just as much as her first book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?. Here are a few reason why I enjoyed it and think you will too:
1. You deserve a break. Treat yourself to some quality personal time to sit down with a good book. Don't worry, I'm not asking you to dedicate the next two years to read the Game of Thrones series. This isn't a serious time investment but it's enough to give you a little break from reality.
2. It's funny. If you're on the same humor spectrum as me you'll enjoy the comedy in the writing—Mindy is after all a comedy writer—and find yourself chuckling while you read.
3. It's relatable. Surprise! Even celebs like Mindy Kaling go through everyday problems. Ok, maybe a more glamours form of them but boil them down and in essence they are similar. It's refreshing to hear, or rather read, this instead of a strategically executed interview that's staged to feel genuine.
4. There is some sound advise. Don't take me the wrong way here. I'm not saying you're going to get life changing advise or that this is some Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul spin-off, but there are some flashes of great advise in here.
5. It's entertaining. Who doesn't like to take a peek into someone else's life and see what is behind that door. Especially, a hilarious starlet comedy writer's who tells you that celebrities who tell you they don't love sex scenes are liars, offends pop stars after drinking too much, devises alter egos and divulges stories of her intriguing encounters.
Have I convinced you to pick this book up yet?
