Freaked out by her fortieth birthday, the creator and executive producer of Never Have I Ever reflects on the importance of good friends—and the mortifying obligations it takes to keep them.

Yes, Mindy Kaling is the genial Hollywood celebrity who posted twelve selfies from a single Oscar party, but that smile took work. In this hilariously honest essay, Mindy reflects on the social anxiety that she traces back to the slices of white cheese her parents served at her ninth birthday party. Little has changed in thirty years—least of all the fear of being judged forever. It’s probably best to just back away.

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.


My review for Kind Of Hindu


REVIEW:
After reading her essay on being Hindu, I had to read the next essay to see what she had to say.
This one was just as witty as the last one! It was all about her experience of turning 40 in the land of silicone and size 3's. Then her best friend also turned 40 and that turn of events was something to behold.
I like the way she gets her thoughts out to page. You can feel her humor, her sarcasm and wit all throughout.
I look forward to the next essay now!

  1. I've only read her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and liked it but didn't love it.

    I really need to read another book by her and this sounds like a good subject!

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. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. 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
