If these books aren’t on your reading list yet, they really need to be! The authors are funny, smart, and successful, and we could all learn a thing or two.

1. Bossypants by Tina Fey

“I’m unstoppable because I don’t know how to stop.”

2. Is Everyone Hanging out without Me? by Mindy Kaling

“If I’m at a party where I’m not enjoying myself, I will put some cookies in my jacket pocket and leave without saying good-bye.”

3. Yes Please by Amy Poehler

“Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled. Listen to no one except the two smartest and kindest adults you know, and that doesn’t always mean your parents. If you do that, you will be fine.”

4. You Deserve a Drink by Mamrie Hart

“Friends should be like a good bra, lifting you up. Bad friends are like sports bras. They can do wonders when you go out dancing or during high-energy times, but one a day-to-day basis they really just smush down some of your greatest assets.”

5. Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer

“We all accept too easily that life has to be hard and forget to make sure we have the most fun we can.”
