52 {Books} in 52: Bossypants

I have been wanting to read Bossypants by Tina Fey ever since I read her prayer for her daughter. The prayer could have been plucked right out of my thoughts for how much I agreed with what she said in the prayer. The prayer comes in at the end of the book, but that's ok because it is yet another great chapter in a book full of so many great chapters. Reading about Fey's life and the route she has taken to get to where she is today was inspiring. Not inspiring in the way that you want to follow her lead and do exactly what she did, but inspiring in the way that you can only hope to tackle life with as much passion and gusto as she did. This book isn't another celebrity memoir, it's the story of a person you can actually picture being friends with in real life.

I loved reading this book and was actually sad when I finished the book. If there is one good thing about reading and finishing this book it's that I am glad Tina Fey wrote this book because otherwise I would have been kept in the dark with how talented and insightful she is.
