Yes, Please by Amy Poehler
THE GREAT READING BINGE OF 2017
Life is crunchy and complicated and all the more delicious.
I fell in love with Amy in Parks and Rec as her portrayal as Leslie Knope. I’ve been meaning to read this for awhile and finally got around to it.
This is a memior of sorts. Amy talks about her life, her triumphs and downfalls, how everyone wants the pudding but it’s okay not to get the pudding, her time on SNL and motherhood. She gets into her relationships with other people and gives tips on how to be the best and funniest you.
I like her sense of humor and this would have been a quick read if it had not been for life getting in the way. Amy is a bright, wonderful woman and talks about her own personal demons, gets down to the nitty gritty on drugs and shows that even though you are tiny (she’s only 5ft 2) you can also be mighty and be a badass.
My roomies recommended the audio book to me which I may nab from them. 😄
I highly recommend this if you need a bit of a Leslie Knope pep talk.
