Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?” Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly! In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.From the Hardcover edition.

I bought this ebook on Kindle quite a while back when it was on sale. I have no idea why it took me so long to start it. It's freaking hilarious from start to finish. If I could rate it more than 5 stars, I would. Being a huge fan of The Office, I knew who Mindy Kaling was, but I'll admit I'd not wa...
So I actually read this memoir by Mindy Kaling a few years back. I decided to re-read it again this weekend since I absolutely adored Why Not Me? I noticed that unlike with previous years I have been pretty far behind my memoir reads and hope to change that up a bit in 2016. I would say that all to...
This is such a fun book!Sometimes sincere, sometimes uncontrollably humorous, this is a very good book. I love Kaling's confidence. And her writing style was relaxed and casual, like listening to a good friend. I also loved all of the book references from everything from Jane Eyre to Harry Potter. F...
