I’ve always loved the Mindy Project, so I though I’d give Kaling’s book a try. I was not disappointed. Each chapter is an opinion or information about a different topic. These range from beauty tips to personal stories or motivational advice. Whatever the topic, every chapter is hilarious! I was cracking up, and it always felt unexpected.
In Why Not Me?, Kaling is very frank and revealing. She gets deeply personal, even about some things about herself that are not so appealing. But I think it’s important to realize that she’s a flawed human being who is continually trying to improve. At the very least, I found it refreshing to see someone admitting their own faults and truths so openly.
I read this book very quickly, in about 2 days. I just couldn’t put it down and that’s not something that happens very often. It just felt like this was the book I needed to read right now. If you need a laugh or need encouragement, than this is the book for you. It was lovely, and I know that I’ll definitely pass this book on to as many people as I can.
