‘Bossypants’ by Tina Fey [Book Review]

Hello, 2017! I hope the new year finds you all healthy and happy. As tradition dictates, a clean slate means a new reading challenge: the 2017 Reading Challenge.

I began 2017 the same way I ended 2016, by reading a memoir. Granted, their intended audiences differ somewhat, but I’d like to think I’m leaving the realms of YA behind me (not in entirety) for the arguably more relevant (to my 23 year-old self) adult genres.

Title: Bossypants
Author: Tina Fey
Released: 2011
Pages: 275
Category: #4 An audiobook
Rating: 6/10

“Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through, and opinions will change organically when you’re the boss. Or they won’t. Who cares? Do your thing, and don’t care if they like it.”

Bossypants is the memoir by TV and film star, Tina Fey. Known for her unrivalled wit and unapologetically honest stance on life, this book is funny in all the right places and is an interesting documentation of her life in and out of the spotlight.

I listened to this autobiography on audiobook, read by Tina Fey herself, and I’m so glad I got to experience the full effect of her creativity and humour.

I very much enjoyed Tina Fey’s memoir: it was everything I expected it to be. Somehow it managed to be simultaneously laugh out loud funny, whilst also addressing serious issues, such as sexism in the workplace, motherhood and its challenges, and the effects of photoshop on body image, in a thoroughly thought-provoking manner. Oddly enough, I’m not overly familiar with the author’s repertoire, having only seen her in a handful of movies, but I’m now excited to discover her further in her award-winning show, 30 Rock.
