By Tina Fey
277 pages (kindle)
There are two things I knew about Tina Fey before reading this book. One, she was on SNL and two, she does an incredible impersonation of Sarah Palin. That was IT! However, after reading her book, Matt and I went on to watch all the episodes of 30 Rock and every Tina Fey movie we can find on Netflix. We now love her.
I think she is terribly funny and Matt things she is incredibly beautiful. He also thinks she is funny and I also think she is pretty but that is besides the point.
I really liked reading about how she started her acting carrer and how she really worked for it. And I really admire her success. She has done great with all she has done. Her book is funny and quirky and even though I think this is one of those books that needs to be "read" on audio, I was still able to capture her voice in my head while I read it on my kindle. What is great about this book, is that I consider stars to be superheros, or super humans, above criticism, critique and judgements. I mean, they can't be 'real' humans, they are only on TV. But after reading her book, you get to know that she is just as self conscience as I am, just as awkward. And it's comforting to know that she is, after all, just human.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wondered if it was worth reading. It is. And it's quick too, I finished it in just a couple days.
So I will leave you with this quote from her book has been floating around pinterest for a while now and every time I see it, I read it and still smile. It's my favorite part of her book. It's a prayer to her daughter:
