This is the second book that Mindy Kaling is releasing, the first one being Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? , we could not be more pumped to see what Mindy Kaling has in store for us. Here are four reasons why you should run to the bookstore as soon as this book releases this fall on September 29.
1. Mindy is Hilarious
If you’ve read Mindy’s first book or watch her show, The Mindy Project, then you know to expect a ton of hilarity from this book. I remember reading Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? on the train and trying really try to prevent myself from laughing out loud so that fellow passengers wouldn’t look at me strangely. Before picking up her new book, you should definitely prepare yourself for a ton of laughter and occasional social embarrassment.
2. She Keeps It Real
Mindy is not afraid to tell things how they are and addresses issues head-on. If you’ve followed her on Twitter or through her interviews, then you know that she speaks frankly about struggles that she’s gone through. Here’s one line from her new book that demonstrates her ability to tackle issues in a hilarious way: In her chapter titled “How to Look Spectacular: A Starlet’s Confessions, Mindy states, “Your natural hair color may be appropriate for your skin tone, but this isn’t the land of appropriate–this is Hollywood, baby. Out here, a dark-skinned woman’s traditional hair color is honey blonde.”
3. Mindy Withdrawal
If you’re a Mindy Kaling fan, then you’ve probably already heard the news that The Mindy Project is being canceled (although, Hulu may pick it up for another season). Just in case we don’t get our dose of Mindy Project in the future, we hope “Why Not Me?” can help ease our withdrawal.
