3.5 Stars

I would say Mindy Kaling is definitely an acquired taste with her very self deprecating humor. Regardless, she’s inspiring in her unconventional and nonconformist ways, and that's admirable.

With the exception of the chapter about a speech at Harvard Law, I loved this book.

I think Mindy Kaling is very funny and she seems like a totally normal person. Her writing style is very conversational and I feel like I just had lunch with her where she told me all these funny and smart things. She talks about relationships, confidence, weight & body image, careers, and lots of her advice is great.

I want her to write a romance novel, I want her to give advice to young women everywhere, and I totally want to hang out with her.

I read all of the essays in this series [Nothing Like I Imagined (Except for Sometimes)] in the last two days via Kindle Unlimited but since they are all super duper short I am just counting them all under this one title so as not to ruin my stats for the year (Even though there are six of them I am not convinced that they even add up to one legit full length book!)

I don't know how much of Mindy Kaling's public image is real and how much is a cultivated image but based upon her books and her social media and most of her TV shows --- I am pretty sure that I wish she was my next door neighbor / BFF. I will be truly crushed if it turns out that she's an awful monster of a person.

These essays are very light and breezy (and funny) and they are just little snippets of her life: what it's like to suddenly worry about creating a religious/cultural heritage for another person, what it's like to be a single mom by choice, what it's like to be an entertainer who is really an introvert with social anxiety, what it's like to learn how to be a famous person "big shot" and how to interact with other hollywood types.
