I'm a huge Aziz Ansari fan. I first saw him in Funny People in 2009, and later fell in love with his performance on Parks and Rec, which is now tied with Buffy as my favorite show of all time. In fact, it was a clip from Parks and Rec where Aziz goes on about "apps" and "zerts" that originally drew me to the show. Look it up! Also, I almost put "apps" and "zerts" on our wedding menus, but Ryan talked me out of it.
I bought Aziz's Modern Love and A Hot Glue Gun Mess at Joseph-Beth, my favorite indie book store, and I've actually already read both of them, but that was in July, so you'll have to wait to hear more.
I listened to The Paying Guests on Audible and I was somewhat disappointed. The whole thing is just a bit slow moving and I thought the characters, with the exception of the narrator, just weren't very vivid or particularly well developed. I'd heard really great things about it from several people, so I thought I'd like it more.
I borrowed The Last Girlfriend on Earth from Ryan. It's a very quick and fun read. There were a couple stories that weren't quite at the level of the others and should have been cut (Unevenness like that always bothers me. That was my biggest issue with Not That Kind of Girl), but overall it was very smart and enjoyable. Simon Rich is a really unique talent.
I liked Lumberjanes, but again I'd expected to like it more based on raving reviews and recommendations. I don't think I liked it enough to continue with the series. There are just too many other great books to read instead.
The conclusion to Alex + Ada was right on par with the other two volumes: completely addictive, smart, riveting, touching. I wish there was more to the series to read, and I'll definitely look into other things Jonathan Luna has done.
