So, full disclosure: I’m a pretty big The Office fan, and I watch The Mindy Project. So, yeah, I like Mindy Kaling’s brand of humor. It’s sort of self-effacing in a girl power-ish kind of way. If you’re not familiar with her work, she’s basically a comedy screenwriter and actress who was on The Office and now has her own show. This book is her memoir-slash-autobiography written pre-Mindy Project, but post-the Office.

This one was a tough pick for rating between 4.5 and 5. I’m not a big giver of 5 stars, so I had to really think about this one. And it was a hard choice, but my rating would go to 4.5 stars. That’s not to say that it was a bad story, it was amazing. Totally on my all-time faves. :)

–If you have not read the book, avoid soilers by only reading the bold text–
Ahh, this was everything I expected it to be and more.
My disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but you know it as “bubble baby disease.” Basically, I’m allergic to the world. Anything can trigger a bout of sickness…and so I stay on SCID row. I don’t leave my house–have never left my house.
Everything, Everything is a story about Madeline, a girl who has SCID, meaning if she ever was to step outside her house, the unfiltered air, someone’s perfume, something normally edible for most people but she ingests could trigger symptomatic attacks that could potentially kill her.

First of all, let me just say it. To get it off my chest, I’ve had this book for sooooo long on my shelf that you might even call it ancient. My friends have been bugging me to read this book. And I’ve been beating around the bush.

Any Harry Potter fan will tell you that the Harry Potter universe is so much more than 7 books and 8 films. I know for me growing up it felt like a whole parallel universe happening around me that was just beyond my reach, but it was incredibly comforting to know it was there.

I’ve been wondering almost since starting Station Eleven (two days ago—yes, it really is that good) why it’s so clearly a breed apart from other apocalypse thrillers. I have an uncharacteristic but genuine affinity for disaster movies (this includes things with giant robots in them), and although some of them can be more than the sum of their parts, most of them, like most end-of-the-world books, are predictable. Entertainment, certainly; food for the soul, less so. But Station Eleven is something else entirely, and not just because the production of Shakespeare plays is central to the narrative.
