Bossypants by Tina Fey

Bossypants is another pick by a funny lady from the entertainment world. Tina Fey’s Bossypants is a memoir with a slight focus on what Fey is asked about the most: her success in comedy. Fey’s book is consistently funny and never ventures into tragic vignettes found in most memoirs.

Coastliners by Joanne Harris

Joanne Harris, author of Chocolat, writes about a tiny French island in Coastliners. Madeleine comes home after ten years, to a rather unwelcoming father, and discovers that the rivalry between her hometown and its neighbor has heated up. The French names in Coastliners can make it hard to follow at times, but ultimately the story is very good and worth it.
