Review of “I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends”

Honestly, I can tolerate a lot in the name of #bachelornation . I’ve watched almost every season with my mom and we typically enjoy it. Even Bachelor in Paradise becomes something we text about while it’s on. Truth be told, every season has it’s “villain” and most of the time this person isn’t really that…

Review of “Why Not Me?”

Kaling’s second book, “Why Not Me?”, surpasses her first book. The original book tended to have moments of whining or immaturity, but this book looks with deeper clarity and humor about the world. Kaling manages to still have a lot to cover in a second book, but more importantly she says things that are more…

Review of “A Man Called Ove”

This story hit me right in the feels. Hard. You see, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this book. Some people called it boring and other people loved it. But I felt like it had potential. And I will admit the beginning is a little slow, but this story is so worth it….

Review of “Kind is the New Classy”

Honestly, who doesn’t love Candace Cameron Bure? Despite your political views, you have to admit one thing: Bure has certainly kept it classy. She is never frumpy, she hasn’t gained tons of weight, and she hasn’t slipped down the usual child-star slope. Bure is somewhat of a Hollywood oddity. While some would be ashamed of…

Review of “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?”

Continuing my journey through books written by anyone who has been on The Office, we come to Mindy Kaling’s first book. I enjoyed this book, but let me begin by saying, I have no idea what to make of Kaling. I want to like her, but I don’t always have the same sense of humor…

Review of “Something Borrowed”

Earlier I reviewed “Something Blue” by Emily Giffin (see that blog here). Later I found out that “Something Borrowed was actually the first of the two books, each showing one friend’s perspective of the same series of events. So, of course I needed to read the original book and see how the two compared against…

Review of “The Bassoon King”

Anyone who knows me knows I love the Office. The addiction began my freshman year of college during my free Netflix trial and has lasted roughly 5 years. This may or may not be an accomplishment, I am uncertain, but I do know that not many things make me laugh the way the office does….

Review of “Yes Please”

Amy Poehler delights readers in this memoir about her life. Riddle with wit and advice Poehler provides an interesting and entertaining read. I picked up this book on a whim. Okay, so in all honesty, I was waiting to go to the library and pick the books I really wanted to read and saw that…

Review of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”

I began this book hoping for an exciting thriller, however what I found was a lacking story. Larsson, despite other reviews, did not meet my expectations. In fact, I was unable to finish this book. The beginning of the story was filled with too many details the reader did not need to know. While Larsson…
