I really enjoyed listening to Mindy Kaling's book. I'm not terribly familiar with her, really. But I've been wanting to watch her new show, so I thought I'd give this a shot. Obviously I'm not a regular viewer of The Office, but I still giggled while listening and actually enjoyed hearing her tales. Plus she threw in some good advice and anecdotes. It's definitely worth a read or listen if you're into this new celebrity memoir/comedy novel thing. :o)
I did get a bit tired of hearing her talk about her weight though. She does finally say that she's a size 8, which I am as well. That's not fat! Maybe in the celebrity world it is, but geesh. Anyway, she does own it though. There's a good story in there about her taking charge of that. People can't control your life if you don't let them!
My favorite part was her section on love and married coupons, being pals, and how divorced people are the least depressing people she knows. Her comments on the whole being pals thing really hit home for me. Josh and I have a rare bond for our time, I guess. We're THAT couple, and while I wouldn't want to brag, I'm very thankful that I have him in my life. It made me smile to listen to that part of her novel. Thanks!
