Mindy Kaling: Why Not Me?

  • Book Rating
5/5Overall Score

Mindy Kaling is my spirit animal. Sassy, witty, pop culture addict, and will never turn down food. Me to a tee. Ha!

I really, really liked Kaling’s previous book, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? So when I heard that she had done it again, I had to get my little paws on it.

Why Not Me?

Mindy regales us with tales we can relate to: losing friends, trying to lose weight while really changing nothing about our lives, and fangirling over celebrities.

My favorite essay? Her quirky, nerdy, and lovely tale of her friendship with Office alum, BJ Novak, Also, a fave was her list of how she and her sitcom persona, Mindy Lahiri, are twins and enemies.

While not as crass as Chelsea Handler or as open about her head stuff as Jenny Lawson, I dig Mindy.

Like honestly, she needs to be my bestie, so we can both proclaim “whoa” at both hot guys AND hot pizza. Because hot damn, I do love me some of both.
