Bossypants by Tina Fey

I've read this book twice and listened to it on audio once. It's the first one I recommend when friends ask for suggestions for "a light read."When I find a copy at a thrift store or yard sale, I buy it so I can pass it on to someone who will appreciate it.

Tina Fey is one of my personal heroes because she is a normal human being. She has succeeded because she's worked hard for years. She's super talented, brilliant, hilarious, and humble.

I love Tina Fey because she reminds me a lot of myself. And because she reminds women that we can do whatever we want. I love how together, she and Amy Poehler show the world what a female friendship should look like and how women should support each other. They are stunning examples for girls and young women.

I love this book not only because it's funny but because it's honest. Tina Fey doesn't apologize for who she is or where she came from. She admits her mistakes, and points out flaws in the system.Her writing and story telling are spot on.

If you haven't read it, you should! If you have read it,  try it in a different format. I promise it never gets old!


  1. I'll look for it to read after the challenge, it does sound interesting!


  2. I think I tried reading it once and my head just wasn't in the right place for it. I'll have to give it another try.

  3. I love this book too! Laugh out loud funny!

  4. I've read Bossypants. I love Tina Fey on SNL and in 30 Rock...this reminds me I still have the last few episodes of that show buried in my Tivo. Need to get to those!
