Book Review: "Why Not Me?" by Mindy Kaling

Why Not Me? is Mindy Kaling's follow up to her wildly successful memoir Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) - which I loved when I read it earlier this year, by the way.  This book looks more at her life after The Office, like creating and starring in her own show, other Hollywood stories, and a bit on her love life.  But actually not much on her love life, which I really respect.  There is a lovely essay in which she talks about her amazing relationship with B.J. Novak, and then other relationships of the more romantic variety.

I read this book on a recent beach vacation, and I'll admit to laughing out loud on multiple occasions, grinning all goofy-like for most of the book, and feeling compelled to read passages aloud to nearby family members.  I just couldn't help it!  Mindy is a great comedic writer who has a lot to share!  This was just so much fun to read.  I hope she keeps writing books... because I'll keep reading them!


By the way - this book will be published in paperback this September.
