Review & Thoughts
Nothing Like I Imagined by Mindy Kaling
Published: October 6, 2020 by Amazon
Initial Thoughts: Mindy Kaling is hilarious and wonderful and when I heard that she’d published a set of audiobook stories I immediately downloaded them in excitement and proceeded to devour them.
I LOVE when audiobook memoirs are narrated and read by the author themselves (recent previous example, Tan France’s ‘Naturally Tan’). Mindy Kaling is absolutely hilarious and this collection of essays was a wonderful exhibit of her authentic boldness and humor. Her stories are filled with laugh-out-loud anecdotes and I found myself nodding along in between the laughing-out-loud.
There was only one thing I didn’t like about the collection of essays; I didn’t realize they were written in a specific order so I ended up reading them completely out of order and the last book was the third of I read. Aside from the confusion on the intended chronological reading order, I adored this collection of stories and highly recommend it. Bonus, it’s included for free with Audible, Amazon Kindle Unlimited, and I think it may be included with Amazon Prime too.
Themes throughout the story include staying true to yourself and living your life for you, unapologetically. If you love Mindy now, you’ll love her even more after reading/listening to her stories.
In a Nutshell: Mindy Kaling is hilarious and comfortingly honest. Highly recommend this to all!
My Rating: 4.5 / 5 Stars
