Audiobook Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

⭐⭐⭐

Summary

This book follows Tina Fey throughout her career in comedy and showbusiness. From elementary school to drama (like stage drama) in high school, to her beginning in stand-up, to Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. She narrates the audiobook herself.

What I Liked

  • It is quite humorous. She includes a lot of interesting anecdotes from her younger years, and she includes a lot of sarcasm.
  • It kept me very engaged, especially on a long, otherwise boring, road trip. You know how if you’re driving by yourself it’s boring and a bit hard to stay awake? But you don’t have the same problem when you’re talking to someone? This book was engaging like that.

What I Didn’t Like

  • To be honest, I’m sort of ambivalent towards this book. I enjoyed listening to it, but I’m not sure it added much to my life. I’m neither happier nor sad at having read it.
  • Once my road trip was over, it took me a good week or so to pick this back up and finish listening to it. It wasn’t compelling enough for me to listen to it when I wasn’t trapped in a car with nowhere to go.

In Conclusion

If you’re a big fan of Tina Fey, or if you’re on a roadtrip and need something engaging to listen to, pick up this audiobook. If not, maybe go watch something she worked on.

June 2019 TBR

I’ve finally broken my book slump (ish) by reading one book in May. So this month I’ll aim for four or five. Here are the ones on my list.

Colorado by Jennifer Zeiger

I want to learn about Colorado! Also, it’s a children’s book, to slowly ease myself out of my reading slump.


Colorado by Kathleen Thompson

Another book about Colorado.

The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris

This is probably the book I’m most excited about. It’s a chapter book (for kids). but looks super exciting.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

I love Brigid Kemmerer’s books so I’m looking forward to this one. I preordered it on Amazon and then sort of forgot about it once it arrived. So hopefully I’ll pick it up this month.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

A friend of mine highly recommends this. I’ve put the ebook on hold at my local library, so hopefully I’ll get it this month.

 

What are you planning on reading this month? Anything I need to add to my list for next month?

New on the Stack May 2019

I got a library card at my (new) local library, so I actually have a couple of “new on the stack” books for this month! Here goes.

Next to each book I give a short explanation why I chose to pick up that particular book. (Clicking on the picture of each book will take you to the book’s Amazon page, through an affiliate link.)

Borrowed Physical Book from Library


Colorado by Kathleen Thompson
I just moved to Colorado (hence the lack of blog posts). Growing up in Arizona, we learned a lot about the state throughout the years, especially in fourth grade. I loved having that knowledge – but I didn’t go to school in Colorado. So it’s time to hit the books! They don’t have books about states for adults (that I could find) so I got this from the kids section.

Colorado by Jennifer Zeiger
Another book about Colorado.

 


Wires and Nerve Volume 1 by Marissa Meyer
I picked this up because it’s a graphic novel I’ve wanted to read for a while. However, I didn’t realize it was an extension of the Cinder universe. And since I haven’t read Cinder yet, I’ll probably hold off on reading this one.

The Magic Misfits by Neil Patrick Harris
It’s by Neil Patrick Harris. I really don’t need to know anymore. 😛 This one caught my eye while I was leaving the children’s section after picking up the Colorado books.

Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
This has been on my TBR for a while, so I picked this one up as well.
