Why Not Me? – Mindy Kaling

Kaling’s second memoir is even more positive than the first. Having already covered her childhood into adulthood in the last book, Kaling focused on her college and career experience, glancing over wide ranging topics and speaking directly to ladies in the world. 

Although her voice becomes grating to me after about an hour or so, I loved the anecdotes she shares. Her romantic interest story involving one of the president’s men was particularly entertaining. She got to meet Obama, attend state dinners, and get a tour of the White House thanks to her crush.

Kaling’s writing style is basically a one-sided conversation with her, and therefore a treat to listen to as an audiobook. Her word choices are quirky and contribute to a light-hearted yet incredibly feminist approach to a memoir. I would highly recommend this book for a pleasure read.
