I read so many more books since I got my Kindle last year. I guess it’s a combination of how simple it is to buy books (one click!) and the portability of the little guy, it just makes reading that much easier. Plus, having the Kindle app on my phone, I always have a book with me! I love technology.
I finished reading Mindy Kaling’s book on our way to Vegas the other day and I just loved it. She is completely hilarious and had me laughing out loud so many times. The book starts off with her funny and embarrassing childhood and works its way through her life, ending with “strict instructions for her funeral” and a eulogy written for her by one of her friends. Random chapters about her opinion on different things are thrown in there too, like one about why she doesn’t eat cupcakes anymore, “types of women in romantic comedies who are not real” and a chapter on Jewish guys.
Reading this book made me love Mindy. I wish we could be friends in real life. I feel like she would be so easy to hang out with, and would be one of those positive role models/super-girlfriends who would always have my back and honestly tell me if my butt looked big in a pair of jeans, etc. She’s smart, determined and a really hard worker. And she doesn’t take herself too seriously either, which I love.
I definitely recommend this book to all girls – you’re pretty much guaranteed to like it. And it’s a super easy read that could probably be finished in a single sitting if you really wanted to.
I’ll probably be doing little book reviews more frequently on here in the future. (I’m trying to become a better “writer…”) My choices in literature are usually pretty dorky/trendy though, so don’t make fun of me, I just like easy-reading! I just started Girl Land by Caitlin Flanagan on our flight back into Norfolk yesterday. I’m only a few pages in and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet. We’ll see how long I can hang with that before I start Michael Ian Black’s You’re Not Doing It Right, which I pre-ordered and just popped up in my Kindle today.
I usually get my book recommendations from my friends on Goodreads (which I’m not the best at updating, whoopsies…) from Twitter and from Bust Magazine. Anything I must read? Looking at you, Erin. ♥
