30 days of Book Discussion: Day 5

A book that makes you happy.

Well, funny you should mention it.  I just finished Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling and I loved it, it just made me walk around with a smile on my face.  You know who Mindy Kaling is, right?  She plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office?  She has also written a bunch of the episodes among other notable accolades.

I listened to the audiobook, which is kind of a win/lose, because her book has a bunch of photos that I missed out on, but her voice is So fun to listen to!  She has kind of an, "Oh my god, right?" voice which is fun and funny and made me feel like I was hanging out with a cool friend rather than listening to an audiobook.  She talks about important episodes from her life, interspersed with funny essays on things she has observed.  Basically, it was kind of like a girl's night out (even though I think guys could enjoy this, too), and I was a little sad to part ways with her when we came to the end.  That's life I guess. =)

This sounds like a really fun book. I'm enjoying reading your recommendations over the past few days - I feel like I'm getting a privileged list of recommendations from a librarian!

Monica - lol, I'm glad you're getting some good ideas! This one is actually a good Christmas gift idea, too.

I think this is where I would have to put Bridget Jones : ). I love a book that makes you laugh out loud!

One I read recently is Austenland. Mostly, I just need books that have love in them and nothing too tragic happens.
