#AmReading: Why Not Me?

Honestly, it took me several months to finish this book. It wasn’t because of Kaling’s writing. I was just so exhausted that I fell asleep every time I read more than a page. “Why Not Me?” by Mindy Kaling is one of the funniest books that I’ve read in awhile.

 

Kaling talks about some of her experiences as a person who is not what society tells us is beautiful. Let’s just agree that American society lies about what is beautiful. I say this because I believe that Mindy Kaling is totally gorgeous.

She didn’t feel beautiful as a young woman. However, Kaling was funny and intelligent. She worked on making herself a better person. The confidence that she has now came in time.

When I was able to stay awake, I began to really enjoy the book. Kaling has a way of writing about her experiences that most people can relate to in some way. She writes about her experience with joining a sorority at Dartmouth College.

My favorite part was when she wrote a series of pretend emails that were part of her life if she had made different choices and become a teacher. (Is it weird that this it the part that I related to the most? Whatever. It’s fine.)

So the point is that I loved the book.  Now I love Mindy Kaling more than ever.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes. View all posts by holley4734
