The greatest thing about books is there's a book out there for everyone. If you're doing some last-minute shopping for gifts for the holidays this year, check out this list of books for any person in your life.

 

FOR THE COMEDIAN

Tina Fey reveals all, and proves what we've all suspected: you're no one until someone calls you bossy.

 

FOR THE OVERACHIEVER  

A Place of Yes  by Bethenny Frankel is an inspirational book written by a woman we can all learn a few things from and the ideal gift  for anyone who wants to take her life to the next level. (Skinny Girl Margarita empire anyone?)

 

Synopsis: Bethenny opens up and shares the obstacles she overcame and the great success she has enjoyed while discovering how to approach life from “A Place of Yes.” Bethenny’s path was not always clear as she overcame a difficult childhood, failed relationships, entrepreneurial efforts that never quite got off the ground, and lifelong money struggles. To deal with these challenges, Bethenny developed ten rules for pursuing her goals with authenticity and drive, including:

FIND YOUR TRUTH: Dig deep inside and figure out what is authentic for you, not anybody else and ACT ON IT: You don’t have to have a master plan. But unless you do something, you’ve done nothing.

 

FOR THE BROKEN HEARTED

A Year and Six Seconds  by Isabel Gillies.  We've all been there- had a relationship fall apart and had to pick up the pieces afterward. And there's nothing worse than heartbreak during the holidays. Gillies's memoir (a follow-up to her NY Times bestseller, Happens Every Day) is the perfect pick me up for anyone who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

 

Synopsis: The story of Isabel Gillies's valiant yet bumbling efforts to pick herself up after her husband leaves her for another woman---and of how she stumbles upon true love.

 

 

FOR THE BEST FRIEND
