'Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)'

A few weeks ago I (A) finished reading Mindy Kaling's book 'Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)' and I knew I had to do a book review here on KAK!

For those of you who don't know, Mindy Kaling is effing hilarious. She plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office and she actually has a new show coming out called The Mindy Project! Let me just say- I have a total girl crush on Mindy Kaling in that 'I want to be best friends with you because you are soooooo awesome' kind of way. She is ivy league educated, she isn't afraid to tell it like it is, she is totally relatable, and she is just really funny.

Basically, the book is about her life growing up, but told in a comedic autobiography kind of way. She delves into her self esteem issues, embarrassing stories, ex boyfriends, and tiger mom parents. She even throws some unflattering pictures of herself in there for all of us to enjoy! She is real, she is honest, and she will make you laugh out loud.

If you're looking for an easy and fun read, this is a great book choice (I read it in a day on the beach...). Has anyone else read this book? Thoughts? Any other comedic autobiographies out there to recommend? Let us know!



  1. Tina Fey's Bossypants is also really good! :)

  2. I love her!! And I second that on Bossypants!
