I’m a little bit late announcing the December book club selection this month, guys. Sorry I made a few of you wait (and thanks for reminding me!). Truth is I really, really want to read Amy Poehler’s new book, Yes Please. But then that kind of makes two comedian books in a row, and does that mean I’m not bringing enough variety to the book club? Will everyone be like, “Hey, I’m sick of laughing. Pick a different book, lady. This is a blog riot!” Or something like that.
But then, I kept hearing good things about this book. One person described it as “affirming.” And if there is one adjective that you can use to get me interested in something, it’s probably affirming. Or positive. Or if you mention Amy Poehler is involved, then I’m probably already in anyway.
So, we’re doing it! We’re reading Yes Please. You should go get your copy. Buy it. Borrow it. Steal it from your roommate. Whatever. Let’s do this. I’m ready to laugh and be affirmed by Amy Poehler. Yes, please! (See what I did there!!!!)
Don’t forget we’ll be discussing Not That Kind of Girl on November 30th. This book has turned out to have quite a bit of controversy around it this month. So, there’s that. Anyway, I’m excited to connect with you, my fellow book-lovers. xo. Emma

totally agree about NTKOG and I am a huge Lena fan/disappointed.
In the Audible version, she reads it to you, which is definitely and TOTALLY worth it – her intonation and laughs in the background will inspire and delight you. 🙂 Promise!
Am currently listening the audio version of this book. I have never been a book-on-tape person (actually I hate it! – the voices don’t sound right to me) but I am totally LOVING Amy reading her book to me. It is like we are friends or something!
Highly recommend it, if you haven’t started yet!
Can’t wait to finish this book – you really can’t go wrong with Poehler. And many thanks to B&N which is where I got my signed copy from! Yay!
I ended up reading this book in a day couldn’t put it down. And it’s funny because I’m new to your site and had read Lena Dunhams book as well, and of course since they are both nonfiction I compared them in my head. But personally I think Amy worked a lot harder for things and her life has actually struggle which really made me enjoy her book so much more. Great selection.
This book is fantastic, and soooo much better than Not That Kind Of Girl! Amy is Queen.
Great selection for December! Definitely on my must read list 🙂
Half way through this book and loving it. If you are on the fence about reading it I would highly recommend that you do!
Oh yay, I’ve been planning to read this! Now I can join in. 🙂
I read this book recently and LOVED it! I hope you all like it, too.
YAY!! I’ve had to wait a wee while longer for this book to make its way to New Zealand but I must get my hands on it quick fast now! Can’t wait! 🙂
Yay! This makes yet another reason for December to be so exciting! I just got this book on audio book and have been listening to it in between doing EVERYTHING in my life, driving to and from work, while I’m in the shower, cleaning my house, it is the perfect pick me up to any day. I am looking forward to finishing it and discussing it with all you fellow A Beautiful Mess lovers. Great pick Emma!
I’m reading this one right now! So excited that you guys are doing this one for next month!
I just started reading this! It is hysterical – though I’m a little bit biased Bc I love Amy!
Hi Patricia! No, the book has a Target logo on it 🙂 -Jacki
