4 Stars - Yes Please by Amy Poehler
I heart Amy Poehler. Her book made me laugh and I actually felt like I could hear her telling me the stories as I was reading it. I've ready a few comedians memoirs: Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling. They do not disappoint. Each one has a different flair but they each tell it like it is. Poehler's Yes Please is no different.
I loved reading about her time on SNL and then building, creating and finishing Parks and Rec. I finished watching the show just after I finished the book. Perfect timing if I do say so myself. Read this book. Whether it's for a book club (which is more fun) or just because you need a break and a laugh. It's fast, easy to read and so worth it.
When I was trying to think of a menu to go with Yes Please I decided a late night food menu would be the best. Amy basically doesn't sleep and works many many late nights in her comedy career so what better to fuel book club than late night food!? Hope you enjoy!

Do you find yourself daydreaming about hanging out with the actor behind the brilliant Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation? Did you wish you were in the audience at the last two Golden Globes ceremonies, so you could bask in the hilarity of Amy's one-liners?
