Book Review: Why Not Me

why not me mindy kaling

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Mindy Kaling. I loved her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, and so, as you can imagine, I was excited to pick up Why Not Me?.


In a nutshell, this book picks up where the other left off. Her first talked a lot about lessons learned over the course of her life. This one offers insight into how things have changed now that she has become famous. Some of my favorite parts were:

  • A look into an “average” day on-set at The Mindy Project.”
  • A Sliding Doors take on what her life could have been had she not gone to Hollywood – complete with an imagined romance that I now want to see onscreen.
  • A no B.S. look at what it takes to look camera ready.
  • The description of her relationship with B.J. Novak.

Have you read the book? What did you think of Why Not Me?
