Books in Review Nº 1 // Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler
As everyone must know by now Amy Poehler is hil-ar-i-ous! If she asked me to be her new BFF I wouldn't turn her down. I absolutely loved her book. The man and I listened to the audiobook version in about two weeks time, it clocked in at a little longer than seven hours. At some points of the story I was laughing so hard that I cried and at other points I felt like tears of truth were going to happen. She does such a good job of mixing in the trials of real life with the wonderfully comical situations she has been in.
The best advice I think she gives in the book is, "Good for them, not for me." LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I have already used this expression in real life and have explained it to people. So many times in life I have found myself thinking that exact thing. So you want to sell everything you own and join the circus in Europe? Great, I can totally see that being awesome for you, not for me though.
Amy has had such an interesting life and she definitely doesn't hold back in this publication. I really enjoy that she is a very private person, not going into the details of her divorce at all shows just that, but all the while being open about her upbringing and the terrible things that she recalls going on throughout her life. It is so refreshing to know that some famous people are so normal.
I hope that this sparks some of you to run out and pick up this book or borrow it from someone soon! Let me know what you think once your done! Hasta!
