Book Review: Bossy Pants

I have heard more than one person say great things about Tina Fey's Bossy Pants!  Actually both of my friends named Kristin (from Kristin's kNook & from Life's an Adventure) have recommended it.

Here's the synopsis from

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV.

She has seen both these dreams come true.

At last, Tina Fey's story can be told. From her youthful days as a vicious nerd to her tour of duty on Saturday Night Live; from her passionately halfhearted pursuit of physical beauty to her life as a mother eating things off the floor; from her one-sided college romance to her nearly fatal honeymoon -- from the beginning of this paragraph to this final sentence.

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

(Includes Special, Never-Before-Solicited Opinions on Breastfeeding, Princesses, Photoshop, the Electoral Process, and Italian Rum Cake!)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! It's not often that you get to read a story that literally makes you laugh out loud...not just type it on a keyboard without even cracking a smile....

I would definitely recommend this book for a laugh. I'm not a super fan of Tina Fey or anything, so I only knew a bit about her from what I've seen on TV, but this was really a great read.

I especially loved the chapter called "Amazing, Gorgeous, Not Like That" about what it's like to go to a photo shoot. It was seriously HILARIOUS.

I couldn't believe how many times I was laughing so hard that I had to stop reading!  While this isn't a book I would reread (it's just not that type of book, in my opinion), I do absolutely recommend that you pick up a copy or borrow it from your local library!  (OR as Kristin from Kristin's kNook would do, listen to the audio book.  I've heard that it's read by Tina Fey herself, which would make it even more hilarious.  In fact, I WOULD definitely listen to this book again!)

Have you read anything good lately??

I wish there was a way to send you the audiobook I have on my phone. It's really funny to me, because she reads it. My favorite was about the rug shampooer when she was a kid and her describing her dad's reaction…"…and then your wife casts some sort of magical spell…" Oh, I laugh just thinking about it. I've actually listened to it twice because Scott wanted to hear it.
