    8 Fierce Females (And The Books They Wrote)

    Sure, we've all heard the hype surrounding the greats: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Lena Dunham. Their books have been praised - all for good reason, mind you - but there are some other very funny women in the entertainment world that have penned awesome autobiographies. They tell the stories that make them normal, run-of-the-mill everyday people just like us. They will leave you laughing to tears, definitely feeling better about yourself, inspired and proud to have these women as role models (well, most of the time).

    Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (and Other Concerns) - Mindy Kaling

    amazon.com / Via amazon

    Ok, so I know I started off by saying I was going to bring lesser-known authors to light, but I couldn't leave this gem out. Mindy Kaling has written a thing of beauty - most women can probably identify with at least one of the stories she tells, whether it's about feeling excluded, befriending her parents, or outdrinking frat boys at a party. Mindy is the first of many refreshing voices, her book reads like a conversation with a best friend, and after reading this, that is exactly what you'll wish you were - Mindy's best friend.

    Everything Is Perfect (When You're A Liar) - Kelly Oxford

    chapters.ca / Via Chapters

    Don't walk, run to your nearest bookstore and buy this book. Twitter-famous @kellyoxford (and now just famous famous) Canadian-born Oxford tells compelling stories of her youth, her mistakes, her crazy adventures and her awesome family. Oxford's story is every person's dream - befriending celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel, uprooting her family from Alberta to L.A... she has even been on David Copperfield's island, for chrissakes! Her witty writing and matter-of-fact points of view are what keep her grounded, and you'll want to keep coming back for more.

    I Like You Just The Way I Am - Jenny Mollen

    chapters.ca / Via chapters

    I started following Mollen on Twitter a few years ago and found her absolutely delightful (follow her @jennyandteets). She's crass, says what a lot of people think, and though she is hilarious in her own right, her twitter conversations with her husband Jason (@jasonbiggs) are always a treat. I had also read a few essays she wrote for playboy.com, so when I heard she was writing a book, I was stoked. Well, Mrs. Mollen-Biggs did not disappoint. Her stories of stalkers, ex-boyfriends, dog-napping and period stains will make you cringe and gasp... and wanting for more.

    Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation - Aisha Tyler

    chapters.ca / Via chapters

    Hilarious comedienne, hot as hell, and can drink with the best of 'em, Aisha Tyler is definitely a badass. Her tales of growing up and falling on her proverbial ass time and again are both endearing and hilarious - you'll appreciate her candor, her openness and her humor.

    I Don't Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star - Judy Greer

    chapters.ca / Via chapters

    You may recognize Judy Greer from, well, a lot. I remember my first encounter with her was in the cult '90s classic "Jawbreaker" and have been enchanted with her ever since. Now, when I see her in credits, I immediately assume the movie/TV show/made-for-TV movie can't be all that bad... and her book was the same. I loved every moment of reading it. She is funny, candid and so strong, and her book will make you appreciate the world (and work) of this co-star that much more...

    You Deserve A Drink: Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery - Mamrie Hart

    chapters.ca / Via chapters

    I couldn't have this list without the YouTube's Holy Trinity, and this is the first member of the wonderful trio. Mamrie Hart is the punniest, booziest dame you'll come across this side of Nantucket (or that side of Nantucket, for that matter). Her stories are laugh-out-loud hilarious - people at Second Cup were probably wondering who the crazy lady giggling in the corner was - and so sweet. Hart is honest and wonderful, and her book is as refreshing as a sangria on a summer's day. Speaking of, there's a built-in drinking game! So you can read and get day-drunk! #multitasking (Follow her channel on YouTube)

    Grace's Guide: The Art of Pretending to be a Grown-Up - Grace Helbig

    chapters.ca / Via chapters

    When I first stumbled upon Helbig's YouTube channel DailyGrace (now ItsGrace), I thought: "Holy motherfucker, she is me!" I'm sure I'm not the only one who has had this revelation, but I couldn't help but see a little of myself in her (not *that* way guys, get your mind out of the gutter). As soon as news came out that she was releasing a book - a self-help book, no less - I was so excited! Her advice is good, hilarious, with easy-to-forget acronyms and just enough humour to make even the shittiest times seem ok. A definite must-read for up-and-coming grown-ups, or for those of us who need a bit of a refresher on how to adult.
