No, it’s not what I sit around pondering on the weekends. It’s actually the name of Mindy Kaling’s book – Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). This is the first book I’ve read in a while – life got busy and I just couldn’t get into the few that I attempted to read. I’d had numerous friends read this book and love it, so it’s been on my list. I also recently hopped on The Mindy Project train and love the show.
The book is, for lack of a better description, Mindy’s ramblings. But don’t worry – they are hilarious ramblings. Having watched the show, I can read and actually hear her saying these things, which makes it SO much better. I highly recommend watching the show before reading the book for this added perk. She covers her childhood, her career, being a woman, dating, and even includes some pictures. I read a lot on the train and I’m sure I was a sight reading this and laughing to myself. She definitely comes across as someone I would want to be friends with. Women should definitely read this book – I think a guy would enjoy it also but may not find it quite as hilarious?? Not sure – but if you’re a guy and have read it let me know!
