I hope you all are loving book of the month as much as I am! I have found it so nice to take some time away and get caught up on some much needed reading!
The book this month is one I found in the sale bin at Barnes and Noble. The light blue cover and title stuck out to me the most.
This month’s book of the month is Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
I didn’t know that this book is a series of short essay’s from Mindy about her career in television, her love life and the different struggles she faced to make it where she has. The best part of this book to me is the feeling while reading is that you are just purely having a conversation with Mindy.
There are so many funny references and jokes and just so much realness throughout the whole book I found it hard to put it down. One of the chapters even goes through a typical day in her life with photo’s included. And let me just say she is a busy woman!
The bits I loved most about this book is that throughout the whole of it she talks about how she overcomes stereotypes of being a minority woman that doesn’t fit the typical Hollywood type yet she has worked hard, busted her butt and gained the confidence to get to where she is now! She has faced adversity and people telling her no but with help from friends and confidence she has overcome and become not only a successful writer but also the star of her own TV show The Mindy Project.
In the final chapter titled “Why Not Me?”, Mindy talks about how she found her confidence and how it has helped her and for other young women to believe in themselves and to push to follow their dreams you can make it too.
I really enjoy this witting and spunky book of essays! I find it fun and so real! I hope you get a chance to check it out and let me know your thoughts!
Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
