Into the Wild

Read Why Not Me? Online Free - From the author of the beloved "New York Times" bestselling book "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? "and the creator and star of "The Mindy Project" comes a collection of essays that are as hilarious and insightful as they are deeply personal.
In "Why Not Me?, " Kaling shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it s falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, or most important, believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you re constantly reminded that no one looks like you.
In How to Look Spectacular: A Starlet s Confessions, Kaling gives her tongue-in-cheek secrets for surefire on-camera beauty, ( Your natural hair color may be appropriate for your skin tone, but this isn t the land of appropriate "this is Hollywood, baby." Out here, a dark-skinned woman s traditional hair color is honey blonde. ) Player tells the story of Kaling being seduced and dumped by a female friend in L.A. ( I had been replaced by a younger model. And now they had matching bangs. ) In Unlikely Leading Lady, she muses on America s fixation with the weight of actresses, ( Most women we see onscreen are either so thin that they re walking clavicles or so huge that their only scenes involve them breaking furniture. ) And in Soup Snakes, Kaling spills some secrets on her relationship with her ex-boyfriend and close friend, B.J. Novak ( I will freely admit: my relationship with B.J. Novak is weird as hell. )
Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays that anyone who s ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to.

Update 9/22/15: This isn't going to be my best review ever. Since last night I've been fighting exhaustion, and I think I might have a sinus infection, but I wanted to get this review done within 24 hours of finishing because I know that I will forget what I want to say about it if I wait any lon...

Find all of my reviews at: http://52bookminimum.blogspot.com/ Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan. I was really hoping I’d like this one more. I mean, Mindy and I have quite a bit in common and I thought we could possibly be kindred spirits. We both enjoy testing out new inventions . . . (Who says you can’t take...

OMG! I'm so embarrassed that I didn't know who Mindy Kaling was, I just saw that a lot of people like the book and thought I would read it. Then I found out she was on The Office (which I have never watched and need to some day) and that she has her own show and books and things. I live under a r...

I read Mindy Kaling's first memoir/essay collection Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) about four years ago, but I just realized that I never actually wrote a review for it - I also just realized that I never made a "memoir" shelf, so that's been corrected. I'll go back and...

3.5 stars for Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling This was an enjoyable, entertaining, and a light read which was exactly what I needed for getting myself used to listening to audiobooks! I do have a print copy of this book so I was able to follow along and see all the pictures and messages that were inclu...

i love mindy kaling. i think she's the kind of awesome that can never be overrated. she's funny, she's relatable, she's empowering, and she feels so genuine. reading this book felt like having a nice, long heart-to-heart with her, filled with laughs and awkwardness and occasionally moving snippet...

You all know how much I love Mindy. I liked hearing about her next chapters post-Office life and also about her thoughts on BJ Novak! It was a really short book, but I still enjoyed it. I wanted to give it 5 stars (I actually did initially), but after thinking about it, I realized that I wasn't c...

Alright, I'm going to take a deep breath and say it; I didn't love this book. I love Mindy. I do. I love her sense of humour, her style, the way she doesn't seem to give too much of a fuck about what other people think, and her ambition. This book just didn't fit into any of those reasons of why...
