By Tina Fey
To fulfill the humor portion of my 2012 reading challenge, I picked up Tina Fey’s Bossypants. A collection of stories about growing up and growing into her role as boss and the many awkward stages along the way.
I love Tina Fey, and I expected to laugh out loud, cry and possibly pee my pants while reading this. But I didn’t. It was still a really good book, though. Tina has a knack for writing and making herself relatable.
Tina comes off as very human in this book. She bounces from awkward and nervous to empowered in a natural, realistic way. I really hope this is the first of many books from her.
I really enjoyed reading this book, and I highly recommend it to others to read.

I didn’t particularly love this book either – I thought it was okay, and gave a good account of her life so far.
Tanya, I did expect more out of this book than it gave. It was interesting to learn more about her experiences growing up and how they shaped who she was, but I thought it glossed over her career more than I would have liked.
I really, really hope she writes more books that fill the void 30 Rock’s departure has left in my life. Thanks for commenting!
