Why Not Me?

Review by Giulietta Gigliotti (Girl with a Pen)

Mindy Kaling, comedian and writer of The Office and The Mindy Project, has released her second biography. A collection of essays, stories and memories that encapsulate her life, her work and her family. The book follows Kaling as she grows and becomes the woman she is, wanted to be and thought she was going to be. In the book, Kaling explains why and how she almost became a college sorority girl during her studying, what she gets up to, why she freaks out getting ready for a date, and even her day to day routine as a writer on her own television show.

The writing, because Kaling is a professional writer, is awesome, it is funny, and it is hilarious to the point where you want to share it with a sister or girlfriend because you connect with what Kaling is saying. As a reader of the book you learn a lot, you read a lot, and you experience a lot of what Kaling has gone through, thanks to her writing that brings you right into the book. If you haven’t watched The Mindy Project then you won’t have Kaling’s voice in your head, which brings a whole new perspective to the book, and you should check out the show along with the book.

If you are looking for a book to give to your sister or girlfriend for Christmas that will make them laugh, or even for yourself, then this is definitely a book for you to grab.
