What if only kind of knowing your family’s heritage is actually kind of lame? For Mindy Kaling, the number one bestselling author of Why Not Me?, the search for an answer begins with an Edible Arrangement of chocolate-covered strawberries and a Hindu priest.

Like Kelly Kapoor on The Office, Mindy is engaged with her Indian heritage to the extent that it is fun and convenient. So apart from a tolerance for spicy foods and an appreciation for Ravi Shankar, Mindy isn’t all that Hindu. Her daughter’s Jewish godfather—TV and film’s B.J. Novak—prompts her to reconsider her religious beliefs and ask herself: How Indian do I want my daughter to be?

From the acclaimed writer, actor, director, producer, and New York Times bestselling author comes Nothing Like I Imagined. In these essays, Mindy Kaling shares the latest chapters of a multitasking life in Hollywood. Read or listen to them in a single sitting. Either way, they’re pitch-perfect.



Mindy Kaling is an actor, writer, producer, and director, and the author of two New York Times bestselling memoirs. She is the creator and executive producer of the Netflix original series Never Have I Ever, which is based partly on her teen years. She also created and starred in The Mindy Project and the Amazon original film Late Night. Previously, she was a writer, producer, director, and costar of the Emmy Award–winning sitcom The Office.



REVIEW:
Mindy Kaling makes me laugh, so I jumped at the chance at reading her book! Even if it seems like the world's shortest book....
This story is all about her being Hindu, yet not a strong practicting one. It is also about her struggle to decide how to raise her daughter. 
It may have been short, but I laughed whilst reading as you can clearly hear her voice coming through. Definitely the best 15 minutes of my day!


5/5

    1. It's super short, only 17 pages so it probably only takes 15 minutes to listen to.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax.

Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
