    Okay, I'm going to have to read Courtney's book now. I couldn't decide if it was worth it–but I love the learning about the background of shows so I'm in!

    I've never liked The Bachelor, so yeah. One is DEFINITELY off the table for me.

    However, I've been hesitant to pick up the other two. It's not that I dislike autobiographies, but I sometimes get bored reading them. I mean, I love Ellen Degeneres, but I hated "Seriously.. I'm Kidding". I had to force myself to finish it! I might finally give these a chance though.. maybe. 😛

    I need to read Courtney's book. I am such a Bachelor fan and wish I wasn't but I can't help it, it's too good! I've also thought about reading Sean's book that just came out!

    Ahhhh love this list! I read Mindy's book this summer and just LOVED it! I've had Amy Poehler's on my must-read list for awhile, but I had no idea Courtney wrote a book!

    Adding Mindy and Amy's book to my Amazon wishlist now. Last year I was on a plane next to a stranger reading a book and got so tickled I was crying and laughing so hard, I closed the book because I couldn't stop but I'm sure he thought I was insane!

    I had the exact same reaction to Mindy's book. I had to stop reading it when other people were around because they kept looking at me funny for laughing so hard to myself.

    I've been dying to read Yes, Please! This month I read Unbroken, One More Thing by BJ Novak, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. All I would HIGHLY recommend.

    I'm so behind. I still haven't read Tina Fey's book, so I'm really, really behind. I decided that I'm devoting this spring to funny lady months and plan to read Tina's, Amy's, Mindy's, maybe an Irma Bombeck and some Dorothy Parker stories. So I'll just basically opt out of wearing mascara. I'm going to ruin it with all the laughter.

    I loved Mindy's book and I absolutely can't wait to read Amy's as soon as possible!!! I'm not a fan of the Bachelor but reading the behind the scenes dish actually sounds really fun to me haha!

    Yes Please and Is Everyong Hanging Out Without Me have both been on my list of books to read for awhile, so glad you just confirmed that I need to get on those soon!!!

    I've debated reading Amy's and Mindy's books, and now I definitely will! Love them both! Great reviews, lady!

    I LOVED Mindy's book. I can't wait to read Yes, Please!

    I've also been on a weird celebrity autobiog kick (even though they take way longer to read than fiction). Loved Amy's book, and the behind the scenes Bachelor sounds really good!

    Yes, Please and Mindy's book has been on my list FOREVER

    I've been on the waiting list for Yes, Please for awhile now at the library. I'm glad these are all good books to read. I've been in a weird mood to want to read autobiographies lately too. And lots of non-fiction.

    oooooh I want to read all of these. I hate to love the Bachelor too.

    Mindy and Amy's books are both on my list. But I didn't know Courtney wrote a book! I must read it!

    I have wanted to read Amy and Mindy's books but it scares me a bit that they push their beliefs a bit throughout the books? I am looking for biographies like this that are funny and entertaining, do you think these were pushy in any way?

    I liked Mindy & Amy's books but not as much as Tina's (so wish we were really on a first name basis).

    Not a Bachelor fan, but I did watch that season and I absolutely hated Courtney.

    I'll admit, I don't read as often as I should, but I keep hearing great things about Yes Please. I may have to give it a try!

    I haven't read a book in an embarassing amount of time, mostly because I have no idea where to start. I def want to check out Mindy and Amy Pohler's books, I love them both (how could you not)!

    I have been debating over whether or not to read "Yes Please". It is reassuring to hear your thoughts on it. I might just have to give it a try. 🙂

    I've had such a hard time focusing long enough to read a book ever since I finished the Maze Runner series although I've heard such good things about Yes, Please that I may have to attempt it!

    Amy and Mindy's books are on my list, need to get them NOW! Thanks girl!

    Amy Poehler's book was basically life changing for me, I swear I bookmarked about every other sentence!

    Looooooved Mindy Kaling's autobiography! I "read" books through audible on the T and I was laughing hysterically. I'm pretty sure I was that person on the T until I was finished with the book. I've wanted to read Amy Pohler's as well, so I'm going to have to do it! If you're feeling another autobiography at some point, check out Tina Fey's. Another one of my fave comedians.

    I am halfway through "Yes, Please" and I am LOVING it.
    But who doesn't love Amy Poehler? 😉

    I read Courtney's book a few months back and even though I didn't watch her season I loooved all the juicy details. The past month I read Night Circus, Little Bee, and Okive Kitteridge. I'm seriously wanting to read those other two on your list next! Have you read Bossypants?

    I read Mindy Kaling's book last year and loved it and then a couple weeks ago when I had to drive to our sister company's office overnight I decided to get Yes Please as an audio book and am so glad I did – IT WAS AWESOME! I am pretty sure I would have loved the book in print but it just made it that much better to actually hear Amy Poehler read it!

    Thanks for this! I've been wondering whether or not to read Mindy's book and you just made me download it 🙂 I now have it on Audible and Kindle. I"m so excited to get started with it!

    I've read both Mindy and Amy's books (both on a plane bad decision) and I was laughing hysterically. I'm sure just like you I had people worried about my health. They are both so down to earth, funny, and witty I couldn't help love them. They just related to my life it seemed and made me feel a bit better about all my awkward endeavors.

    I'm currently reading Yes, Please.. and even before the actual book started, I could not stop laughing out loud. 🙂 i could just hear everything in her voice.

    Okay, I'm convinced I need to read Mindy's book now. Also, having actually watched the season with Courtney on it… I'm pretty interested in what she has to say! I was NOT a fan of her, but I'm sure the show barely captured who she actually is..

    I'm really intrigued by Courtney Robertson's book! The ebook is available at my library so I just checked it out. 🙂

    Ooo, I've been wanting to read Mindy and Amy's books anyway, so I'm glad you recommend them. 🙂 But I've never seen The Bachelor, so I think I'll skip that one. 😉

    I LOVED Yes, Please. Amy is amazing
