Road Trip Wednesday: Name That Life

It's time for another Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival hosted by the lovely ladies of YA Highway.
This week's question:

What Would Your Memoir Be Called?

Well, sadly, the best name ever for my memoir was actually stolen from me by Mindy Kaling...

I mean, that's even how I would imagine looking on the book cover, too. Get out of my head (and stop doing it better), Mindy Kaling!

So, with that off the table, there is always something like this...


That one is in progress. I guess I can't really write it just yet.

I was sort of stuck on a title until I remembered this someecard I saw on Tumblr the other day...


And that brought me to the perfect title for my memoir...


Yup. That about sums up my life. And that was the closest I could find to the Mindy Kaling awkward face in my three minutes of searching through my photo archives. It works, I guess.

What do you think...would you buy it? NY Times Bestseller right there, amirite?

What would the title of your memoir be?

  2. LOL, love it. I don't know what mine would be, but I have this friend Leigh who always talked about her fake memoir, "Ugleigh," and the sequel, "Loneleigh."

    Incidentally, she is gorgeous and has lots of friends, but constantly laughs at herself.

  5. The last one actually looks like it could be a book. It sounds like it would be funny too! :) I have no idea what my memoir would be.

    1. I hope it would be funny. I can't do funny like Mindy Kaling, though!

  7. Is it strange that this post is in my Top Three Favorites of everything you've blogged about since I started following? :) Love your titles and self-made covers. You crack me up!

  10. Ha, I love this. And I loved Kaling's book so that gives me a frame of reference for Jessica IRL. ;-) Your cover looks ready for the stores! Love it!

    1. I haven't even read her book yet, but that title = my life, for sure.

  11. I love everything about this! When I stop laughing over how awesome you are I might be able to think of my own memoir title. I doubt it though, between you and Mindy Kaling I'm pretty much tapped out.

    1. I totally make that face, don't I? Haha. That's my normal face.

  15. I love it! I'd definitely read a memoir with that title :) Which reminds me, I should really pick up a copy of Mindy Kaling's memoir...

  18. I just finished reading Mindy's book!!!! hahaha. I'd surely buy your book, but you need more of a snarky look on your face.

    1. I do. I swear I have a picture with Mindy's exact look on my face, but I couldn't find it.
