Back in 2012, before the husband and I had spent a few weeks of the summer catching up on what was then available of the American version of The Office, I read Mindy Kaling’s first book Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? and liked it, and her, a lot. Once Mindy Kaling got her own show, The Mindy Project, I even watched all of the first season and about half of the second season before I got distracted by other shows, reading and computer games. Any sitcom the husband and I don’t agree to watch jointly tends to get forgotten about, because if I’m at home by myself, I read, fritter away time on the internet or play computer games.
I noticed a while back that Mindy (I’m going to assume I’m allowed to use her first name, since I spent nearly five hours of my life recently listening to her talking directly in my ear) had a new book coming out, but didn’t really feel like it was a huge priority, not like Felicia Day’s memoir or Jenny Lawson’s new book (which I’m listening to right now (well, not RIGHT now, I’m currently blogging, but you get the general idea)). So what changed my mind? This very positive review from fellow Canonballer ModernLove, combined with very enthusiastic Goodreads status updates followed with a good review from my book twin on the internet, Narfna. It didn’t hurt that I had free Audible credits to burn, either.
So here’s what I thought of the book.
