I Want to Go to There...

by Tina Fey

Genre: Autobiography/Comedy

This cover catches my attention, yes, but it also creeps me out

Review: I love Tina Fey. I love Weekend Update and the Sarah Palin impression and of course, 30 Rock. My sister and I find ourselves quoting Mean Girls on a regular basis. 

Definitely found myself laughing out loud (aka LOLing) while reading. Especially the chapter where she talks about rocking a fanny pack with a "No Crying in Baseball" t-shirt and bike shorts with wrestling shoes. Classic. 

My favorite parts of the book involved learning about the background of 30 Rock, and also noting how she slips some real advice about being an intelligent, funny, powerful woman in today's world. 

Book Club Questions: Hope to segue some chapters into a discussion of vacations gone awry (cruise ship fire on Tina's honeymoon) and bad 80s/early 90s ensembles we have worn!

Fun Fact: I felt super cool for having also climbed boulders in the Blue Ridge Mountains while attending University of Virginia, just like Tina did in the book, when she went on that sad hike with Jess-Cris and co. Tina, we have that in common! I thought I was going on a hike, but apparently there's something called "bouldering" (see photo above)

Song to Read By: in honor of the bad 80s fashion celebrated in this book, try some 80s music: "Take on Me by A-Ha
