Why Not Me by Mindy Kaling

Last week my computer broke which made me very upset and really unable to read anything at all. I’ve wanted to read something written by Mindy Kaling for a long time. I’m a big fan of the two TV shows that she helped create, The Office and The Mindy Project. I also think she may be one of the funniest women on television.

22716447In the sea of famous people who write their autobiographies,  there are a few of them that are actually interesting to read. I would probably skip every single book written by a star of a reality TV show or a fashion designer or an actor whose biggest success was being pretty but I would gladly read about women who struggled in Hollywood.

This is a collection of essays, each one represents a certain time in Mindy’s life, starting from the time she was hired to write for her most famous TV show. Since this is a book of essays, each story is actually a smart insight into the world of Hollywood stars and especially those who are behind the camera. Mindy still manages to be funny and witty while talking about racism, sexism and the big pressure of society.

Mindy Kaling’s voice is very unique. She’s not always politically correct, she’s not what people expect her to be, she’s not here to please you. She made her way in the industry with her own talents and her writing was funny, original and always interesting.

“This Book Is Gay” by James Dawson

 

 22074335 I’m finally starting some books I wanted to read for quite some time. These are mostly some YA novels and fantasy books which take up a lot of time. Also there’s this non-fiction book with quite a title and you know, a promise of important things. This is The Gay Book, something you probably won’t be reading in public because, you know, someone else nearby will not be happy. But then again, if you’re straight you should read this book in a bar or in the park, somewhere where a lot of people can see you. You’ll get a taste of what is like to be gay and out and this is why you’re probably reading this…Right?
