Bossypants by Tina Fey
My rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
Genre: Adult Non-Fiction, Memoir, Humour
Publisher: Reagan Arthur Books
Synopsis: 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.
My Thoughts: This book was hilarious! Not every sentence was laugh at loud but there were many parts where I laughed myself out of my chair. I really loved learning more about Tina Fey. She is a very intelligent and respectful person and she works very hard. She is also super caring. I loved the section of the book that she dedicated to just telling about her daughter and the prayer to God she wrote down that ask to keep her safe. It was really heart-warming and funny.
She is awesome at telling you things that are normally not funny in a funny way. She is a genius at that. In this book she talks about her childhood, school-life, SNL, Weekend Update, 30 Rock, Sarah Palin, and being a mother. She delivers this to you in a big package of hilarity and awesomeness. She is very honest about how she felt about things and she never sugar coats anything. Also she showed us a cover of a feminist magazine that she believes photshopped her best. Here it is:
That picture is very awesome isn’t it? Also Tina reads books! Can she get even more awesome? I think not.
