Book Review: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns) by Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is one of the funniest people I've got to experience. 

Unlike Tina Fey's book Bossypants, this book is not a cohesive telling of her life or career, instead is a set of short stories, essays, and fun pictures of Mindy. 

I did enjoy this, she is hilarious, but I found it really hard to follow through the book from story to story if I was reading it for a while. 

This would be a perfect book to have on your night stand or in the bathroom to read one or two sections per sitting, even though it is fairly short. 

I loved the stories of her life, as well as the inserts of advice/or messages to young girls about body image and being who you want to be. Hearing about the internal struggles she's faced  made this book really relatable. I wanted to give this four stars but it really did not hold me, and since I read this in 2 sittings it was really difficult to go from one section to the nest for me. I really like stories that have a connected story line and I was really looking forward to that but didn't get it. 

This would make a great gift book for people who are not super into reading!
