I love audiobooks – there I said it! They’re convenient and interesting. I can listen to them while I cook, clean, and drive – and I enjoy that freedom.
My favourite audiobooks are the memoirs written by comedians. I started bingeing on these back in the summer and couldn’t get my fill! My personal favourite was Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
Mindy Kaling is an actor and comedian best known for her show The Mindy Project. If you’re a fan of the show, then you’ll adore her outrageous story-telling in this book. The audiobook is particularly fantastic because Kaling narrates it herself – giving emphasis to each grin-inducing story as she takes you through her past as an awkward kid and into her struggle to break into the entertainment industry.
What did I take away from this book? Kaling is a successful woman, yet she talks about her struggles and insecurities. I can relate to this and am reminded that everyone is trying to put themselves out there and succeed.
