Who doesn’t love Ellen DeGeneres? I mean come on!! She is the wittiest, most generous and the kindest animal lover we know. And her oxymoron titled book is all that and more.

Tina Fey brings the house down with this one. Her flawless comedy writing shines through the book as she takes the reader through her life’s journey. “I was ten. I had noticed something was weird earlier in the day, but I knew from commercials that one’s menstrual period was a blue liquid that you poured like laundry detergent onto maxi pads to test their absorbency. This wasn’t blue, so…I ignored it for a few hours.”

Aziz Ansari is famous for his role as Tom Haverford in Parks and Recreation. Tom’s sarcasm and unmatched entrepreneurial ideas made him one of us. Aziz Ansari’s debut book – Modern Romance, just as the title suggests, details the current dating scene. The book is based on community research and social science experiments and gift wrapped with just the right amount of wit! “In a sense, we are all like a Flo Rida song: The more time you spend with us, the more you see how special we are. Social scientists refer to this as the Flo Rida Theory of Acquired Likability Through Repetition.”

Kunal Nayyar, who stole our hearts as Raj Koothrappali in The Big Bang Theory got us wanting for more with his debut book. Kunal traces his journey from a young kid in India, to his first awkward kiss, his love for badminton and then to his university years in the United States. The book is light-hearted but still packs a punch. “Too often we focus on the greater schemes in life, like making money, or getting promoted at work, or starting a new relationship – and yea, of course, those things matter – but sometimes it’s the tiny, gradual, stepping-stone victories that bring real joy and signify the positive changes in our life.”

In her very aptly named book she addresses her relationships and gives it a comical twist. “I went out with a guy who once told me I didn’t need to drink to make myself more fun to be around. I told him, I’m drinking so that you’re more fun to be around.”
