Review: Bossypants by Tina Fey

By 12:00 PM , , , ,

Bossypants 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!)

If I said I don't like Tina Fey, that would be a freaking outright lie! I love this woman with all my heart and listening to her read her book, Bossypants made me sooooo happy the whole time.

I finished it awhile ago and totally thought I put up a review for it and then I check on here and see it's not so!

Bossypants is exactly what you want in a memoir: life lessons, awesome anecdotes, how to survive fires on a cruise boat, and how to be awesome (She doesn't explain that last one, the whole book is basically that because she is. Can you tell yet that I'm a Tina Fey fangirl? Can you?) She even goes into that whole Sarah Palin thing that happened. Which I found very enlightening!

I would go on about this book, but I'd be basically reciting the book verbatum. So I will leave you saying get the book (Audio version is awesome because she reads it to you!!!!) and dive in.

Or I could just fill this whole post with a TON of Tina Fey = Love. =)

  1. Oh, I have a print version of this book, but maybe I should go for the audio! I am generally not a big audiobook fan, though. Oh, decisions, decisions!

  2. I love books that make me laugh out loud, so I may have to cave and get this one.
