In Why Not Me?, Kaling shares her ongoing journey to find contentment and excitement in her adult life, whether it's falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in lonely places, attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever, or most important, believing that you have a place in Hollywood when you're constantly reminded that no one looks like you.

A companion piece to Kahling's other memoir, celebrate life's little funny moments (and the occasional major event) with Mindy.

Such a refreshing read. Honest, candid, hilarious - Mindy Kaling executes her second book perfectly. That chapter by Greg Daniels and that convo between Mindy and her mom were both gold. Can’t say enough good things about this book!

She is very real and honest. If you are a fan of The Mindy Project, you will love this book even more. The way she writes makes me smile so much. Love it and will recommend this to anyone who needs a good but not-so-heavy read.

Kaling's candid and funny second book. If you liked her first ("Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?"), you'll love this one.

Mindy Kaling is who I want to be when I grow up. She is honest all around with herself and her readers and on top of that she is just plain funny. Her sequel is just as good as, if not better than, her first book, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" Kaling offers insight and humor on various life topics, some that are applicable to the everyday gal and others that are just fun to read about. I highly recommend this title for anyone who has seen her work and wondered about the girl who plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office.

Mindy had me entranced from start to finish. Love her commentary and insight on life. This is a perfect quick read that I would recommend to anyway in need of a some good comedy and advice.

This was the first book by Kaling that I read, and it made me want to go back and read the others! Witty, honest, and gives a great insight into her world. As a fan of hers in the first place, this solidified my impression of her already.
