Easter break is here and we have welcomed it with open arms.

You may be a lucky college student with weeks off from lectures, or a girl boss who is constantly dreaming about bank holiday Monday.

Even though we love having a busy schedule we adore the thought of curling up with a book with an Easter egg to our left and a cup of tea to our right.

We’ve conjured up a list of the books you just have to delve into this Easter. Bookworms, enjoy these joyous tales.

The Bestseller: Letters To My Daughters by Emma Hannigan.


A post shared by Karen (@carrie.moloney) on

This novel is jam-packed with excitement, heartache, and shocking twists. There is so much going on in Emma Hannigan’s Letters To My Daughters you won’t be able to put it down. The book follows the lives of the Brady sisters who are all living drastically different lives, from the wild sister who lives in LA, to the sister whose husband and daughter gang up on her, making her life miserable, and the eldest sister who owns a string of successful bridal shops, but can’t help but feel like something is missing from her life, despite her booming business. The tale looks at the strained relationship between the sisters and their busy mum Martha.

This book is ideal for those of you who love a drama-filled tale stocked full of family drama.

The Old Favourite: Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

The classic chick-lit novel stole the hearts of many women back in the 90s, and it is still one of the most loved novels today. The tale is written in the style of the personal diary making it extremely easy to read. You’ll gobble this novel up in one sitting. If you’re unfamiliar with the legend that is Bridget Jones, she is a thirty-year-old singleton living in London, who has set new year resolutions that every girl will relate to- lose weight, improve career, stop drinking and find a boyfriend.

This book is the perfect antidote if you’re feeling a little bit glum. Bridget Jones’s Diary will leave you crying with laughter and the diary-style makes the story that little bit more heartwarming.

Earlier this month, rumours that Mindy Kaling was expecting her first child began to circulate, however this was never confirmed by the actress or her publicist.

But, it now seems that the former queen of day time television, Oprah Winfrey, has taken it upon herself to reveal the big news.

Oprah told People that she learned of Mindy's pregnancy during a press event at Disney's D23 expo this month.

“My mouth dropped. ‘What did you just say?’ she said, ‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m five months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘Whaaat?!’”

“That was it, and we just kept smiling,” she added.

The pair are set to star alongside each other in Ava DuVerny's upcoming film, A Wrinkle in Time, and it's been reported that The Mindy Project creator shared the news with the entire cast and crew.

Details of Mindy's current relationships status are unknown and it's thought the star plans to keep the identity of the father tightly under wraps.

The Mindy Project has been renewed for a sixth and final season and A Wrinkle in Time is set to premiere in March 2018.

Huge congratulations are in order!


Is this just the best birthday present or what?

Mindy Kaling knows exactly how to celebrate her birthday in comfort. The Office star marked her 36th birthday by having a pyjama party and watching the horror flick, It Follows with a bunch of friends and a whole load of McDonald’s.



Part of my birthday is we got to wear pajamas and we are watching It Follows at lunch.

This sounds like the perfect birthday party to us!

And what present did the actress really want for her birthday? Why, a Dubsmash from friend Lena Dunham, of course!

Mindy tweeted her special request saying “I would also love a dubsmash of @lenadunham doing a portion of @tomhanks iconic “there’s no crying in baseball” speech.”

Sure enough, the talented  Ms Dunham obliged.


Your bday wish is my command @mindykaling

But it wasn’t all about Ms Kaling as the kind-hearted writer also tweeted asking fans what their favourite charities were so as that she could donate to them.

“For my birthday I’d like to go shopping. What are your favourite charitable organizations and why? Tweet me link & I will give!”

This is just so sweet! All in all, this sounds like a seriously great birthday to us.  



Elle magazine have landed themselves in hot water this week after the release of their “Women in TV” special edition. Each edition features a different female face from TV, including Girls star Alison Williams, Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler, The Mindy Project‘s Mindy Kaling and New Girl, Zooey Deschanel.

It seems that many people have taken offence to the fact that Mindy’s cover is the only one of the four that is not full length and is the only one that is in black and white, leading people to call Elle “fat-ists”.

Whilst many people seem to think that Elle had intentionally hidden Mindy’s body from the shot, it would seem both the magazine and Mindy herself, disagree.

Speaking to E! online, Elle called their cover “sexy, beautiful and chic” and Mindy took to twitter to voice her own opinion on the matter; “I love my @ELLEmagazine cover. It made me feel glamorous & cool”.
