Book Review: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
Published November 1st 2011 by Crown Archetype
Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”


Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!
In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.
I love The Mindy Project tv series. Mindy is a successful obstetrician, mother, business women, and a little bit crazy, but I love her character!

That's why I was curious about the real Mindy: actress, writer, director!. She is not only funny, but a very real women and easy to look up to. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is about her family, school life, failures and road to success. I loved how she expressed her feelings about her family and friends, her hindu culture, and I liked that her life wasn't an instant success.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) is the perfect light reading, excellent to have a few laughs before going to bed. I definitely want to read more about Mindy!

Book Review: Find Momo Coast to Coast: A Photography Book by Andrew Knapp

Find Momo Coast to Coast: A Photography Book by Andrew Knapp

Find Momo Coast to Coast: A Photography Book (Find Momo #2) by Andrew Knapp
Published May 12th 2015 by Quirk Books
Momo loves to hide—and you’ll love looking for him! In this follow-up to Find Momo, the canine Instagram superstar (and his best buddy, Andrew Knapp) travel across the United States and Canada, visiting iconic landmarks and unique off-the-map marvels. Look for Momo hiding in Grand Central Station, in front of the White House, and in the French Quarter of New Orleans . . . as well as at diners, bookstores, museums, and other locales that only a seasoned road-tripper like Andrew could find. It’s part game, part photography book, and a whole lot of fun.
Find Momo Coast to Coast was adorable! Obviosly Momo is super cute and well-behaved, and if you love dogs as I do, you will love this game! Every page offers a new photo where you have to find Momo enjoying his trip across the USA and Canada. Some were easy, other were very difficult, but it's a book I'd enjoy having it around the house or my *future*¨veterinary clinic waiting room!

Find Momo Coast to Coast is the second book from the Find Momo photography book series, I'd love to read the first: Find Momo.

When Two Hearts Collide by Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel

When Two Hearts Collide by Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel

When Two Hearts Collide by Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel

Charlie Williams’ view on relationships is simple—one night, no strings, move on.

But when the opportunity to see a girl from his past comes up, Charlie finds himself breaking all his own rules. Ever since the night he'd turned her away, Charlie hasn't been able to get Charlotte off his mind. A break from his pub for a vacation across the pond should be enough to cure him of his curiosity and get her out of his system. At least, he hopes…

Charlotte Mackay channels love through coffee.
Running her fandom-themed store and specialty coffee bar keeps her nerdy heart busy after one too many relationship disappointments. Until the man she can’t manage to forget calls.
Charlie’s coming to The Hamptons for a two-week vacation. She’s going to be his host—nothing more. She'd fallen under the spell of his bedroom eyes and roguish charm once before, and it nearly wrecked her. Charlotte can’t risk the same mistake twice.
But love knows no boundaries when two hearts collide.

Happy New Year! 2017 Reading Challenge

Happy New Year!

I feel like this season was super fast and crazy, specially at work, but my family and I had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. Last night we had a big and delicious dinner all together to wait until midnight to celebrate this new year. 

Regrettably, I failed miserable at my 2016 reading challenge.....I even thought about not making a reading challenge for this year, but I do love challenges, so I decided to challenge myself with a more realistic number.


Hopefully I can complete this challenge and read even more. I do want to read more non-fiction books and finally read all those to-be-read books I have on my bookshelf before I buy more.
Do you have any reading goals for 2017? Let me know in the comments, and we can support each other!
