Great Treadmill Read,
This review is from: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) (Kindle Edition)
She's so cute, don't you think? I love Kelly on the Office. Prior to this book, I really had no idea Mindy was a writer, and I'm really impressed with her accomplishments in the entertainment industry. That said, I felt as if for most of the book I was reading the diary ramblings of a 13 year old girl. I didn't buy the book with any expectations of self-revelations, so I assure you I wasn't disappointed, but it felt like one of those books teenage best friends write with one another thinking its sooo hilarious with its inside jokes and random name dropping, but everyone on the outside just doesn't really get it. I wish I got it, I really do. It made me want to be her friend. So, Mindy, if everyone is hanging out without you, come to South Florida and we can hang out and make tons of funny sketches (I do a great Martha Stewart), and then write a book about it so then I know what is going on.

Good review. This is the book that my book club is reading this month. Did you read Bossy Pants? It made me feel the same way about Tina Fey.

Spot on. I liked the book, but didn't get her. At times I was confused as to if she was being sarcastic or serious. e.g., wanting to be Beyonce's best friend?
