[Waiting On Wednesday: Yes Please]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Yes Please"
Author: Amy Poehler
Release Date: October 28th, 2014


The eagerly anticipated first book from Amy Poehler, the Golden Globe winning star of Parks and Recreation, goes on sale October 2014.

AMY POEHLER is an actor, writer, director and producer. She is a founding member of the comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade and a former cast member on Saturday Night Live. She currently stars on the Emmy-nominated NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation. Her portrayal of Leslie Knope earned her a 2014 Golden Globe award. Poehler also recently returned as the co-host for the 71st Golden Globe Awards to much critical acclaim. Additionally, she produces and hosts the award-winning online series “Smart Girls at the Party,” which showcases real girls who are “changing the world by being themselves,” where her “Ask Amy” web series has more than 2.5 million hits. Poehler will star in Pixar’s next feature film, Inside Out, set for release in 2015. Her latest film, They Came Together, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014. Her other film credits include Baby Mama, Blades of Glory, Mean Girls, and Wet Hot American Summer. Poehler lives in New York and Los Angeles with her two young sons.

Amy Poehler is one of my favorite people on the whole planet, so of course, I'm excited out of my mind about this book! Seriously, Parks and Rec is one of my favorites and I'm basically what would happen if you put Leslie Knope and April Ludgate in a blender together. Will I read this? The answer is hell yeah!

I didn't realize she had a book coming out! I'll definitely have to check this one out. I loved Mindy Kaling's book and she writes so highly of Poehler plus Poehler's just plain funny!
