Amy Poehler YES PLEASE!


Just finished this book!  I love love loved it!  This book literally had me cracking up- I seriously visualized her funny facial expressions while reading.  If you love her acting you’ll love this book.  I’m so happy that this is the first book that I read this year.  I’m recommending this to all women, but I think that any man would enjoy it as well-  I read a couple of funny parts to Kahele and he laughed his ass off.  This is a must read!


Here are just a few of the funny quotes that I highlighted during my reading…

“Annie taught me that orphanages were a blast and being rich is the only thing that matters. Grease taught me being in a gang is nonstop fun and you need to dress sexier to have any chance of keeping a guy interested. But The Wizard of Oz was the ultimate. It dealt with friendship and fear and death and rainbows and sparkly shoes.”

“I love Boston, but we sound like idiots. Our mouths never close and we talk like big, lazy babies.”

“Darling Nikki masturbated to a magazine, but Madonna was supposedly still a virgin. It was very confusing”

“I don’t consider myself beautiful or famous, but my vagina certainly is. Everyone knows this. I have the Angelina Jolie of vaginas.”

“Fighting aging is like the War on Drugs. It’s expensive, does more harm than good, and has been proven to never end.”

“Please don’t drive drunk, okay? Seriously. It’s so f*cked up. But by all means, walk drunk. That looks hilarious.”

“There is an unspoken pact that women are supposed to follow. I am supposed to act like I constantly feel guilty about being away from my kids. (I don’t. I love my job.) Mothers who stay at home at supposed to pretend they’re bored and wish they were doing more corporate things. (They don’t. They love their job.) If we all stick to the plan there will be less blood in the streets.”

  1. This book looks fantastic; I really enjoyed Tina Fey’s Bossypants (you can read my review on my blog) and this looks like a great follow-up. I don’t know if it’s in the book, but a piece of trivia: Rebel Wilson’s character in Pitch Perfect, Fat Amy, was named after what Amy Poehler called herself when she was pregnant. True story!


  2. I love Amy Poehler & have this on my list of books to read this year. She is hilarious, empowering, & doesn’t take things too seriously. I’m glad to see you loved her book so much.
