Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
I first read an excerpt from Mindy Kaling’s new book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Other Concerns in the spring. Now, this may sound creepy, but all I could think of while reading it was, “All I want is for Mindy Kaling to be my best friend so we can go shopping and talk about life and eat ice cream and laugh all the time.” I think that’s a pretty positive reaction when reading someone’s book…even if it’s slightly weird/creepy.
The book just came out this week and I’ve been making my way through it. Not only is Mindy’s book funny, but her thoughts on food, friendship, and first jobs will resonate with most ladies. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been known to wake up in a cold sweat worrying about all the fun parties my friends are having…without me. It’s an issue. I thought I was suffering alone, but it makes me feel better to know that other, more glamorous and successful women, also struggle with this malady.
I haven’t read Tina Fey’s Bossypants yet, but I love seeing books by funny, smart, and beautiful women at the front of the bookstores and on the top of the bestseller lists.
Have you read either book? What did you think?
PS: Looks & Books (aka me) is on vacation in Florida until next week! Catch you back here then.
