1. Conquest: a Novel for Modern Women by Jaime Boust


For a witty and sexy read, turn to author Jaime Boust for the ultimate adventure with Conquest, as Brie Baggio sets out on a mission to fulfill her sexual bucket list. This book is a rebellion call to modern women who are struggling to find love and are open to discovering themselves in unordinary ways. With strong feminist undertones, this is a book Lena Dunham would certainly approve.

2. The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer


For a laugh-out loud memoir written by one of the hottest comedians of our generation, Amy Schumer is not one to disappoint. Her abrasive and unapologetic humor is inspiring to modern women who have had enough with society's outrageous double standards. Not to mention, Amy has guest starred on Girls a few times!

3. The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae


We are huge fans of Issa Rae's popular YouTube channel and love that we now have the paperback release of The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl! Not only is Lena Dunham a huge fan and hails Issa's memoir as "brilliantly wry", but Ms. Rae also has a show hitting HBO this fall. For a funny and honest take on life from one of Hollywood's up and coming writers, be sure to enter the brilliant world of Issa Rae.

4. Losing It: A Novel by Emma Rathbone


This hilarious novel chronicles the adventures of Julia Greenfield, a 26-year-old woman who has a problem: she's a virgin. As she focused on her life as an Olympic swimmer, Julia got through college and into adulthood without ever having had sex. Rathbone's writing echoes that of Rainbow Rowell as this candid and insightful novel discusses the blurred lines of love and sex.
