We are VERY opinionated when it comes to literature.

    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

    "Sure, this coming-of-age story about growing up in poverty in an NYC borough at the turn of the century is about as far off from Kim K.’s reality as you can get. But every woman will find some of her self in Smith’s unsinkable protagonist Francie." 
    – Carli Whitwell, special projects editor

    JFK JR., George, & Me by Matt Berman

    "As far as fashion-y memoirs go, Matt Berman's JFK Jr., George & Me is pretty underrated. The art director of JFK's political magazine George (who also worked at ELLE in the ’90s) recalls some of the magazine's most memorable cover shoots with the likes of Kate Moss and opens up about his friendship with John F. Kennedy Jr. If Kim really is keen on building her very own Kamelot, she can consider this a primer."
    – Liz Guber, associate fashion editor

    All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

    "If Kim et al are looking for some YA fiction, I’d recommend this read about a heartbreaking romance between two teens living in small-town Indiana. FYI Kimmy: it’s also being made into a movie starring Elle Fanning."
    – Danielle Campbell, designer

    Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann

    "This book is all about the pitfalls of fame and the desire to be adored by the public. After Kim's rough past year, she’ll def be able to relate and maybe even learn something from this read." 
    – Michelle Skelsey, editorial assistant

    Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

    "Canadian feminist, poet and Instagram sensation Rupi Kaur released her debut book Milk and Honey last year. A collection of poetry and short essays dealing with intense themes such as love, femininity and loss, we consider it a must for every woman’s bedside table, including Kim K’s. Having witnessed the Kardashian family’s tumultuous rise to stardom, we would love to hear Kim’s perspective on the central themes of the book, and how she too deals with life’s most beautiful yet challenging moments." 
    – Maryjane Peters, beauty editorial assistant

    Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

    The best-selling author of Wild was once a beloved online advice columnist for The Rumpus. The archival, along with never-before-seen pieces, are some of her most honest, personal, and unapologetic answers to the hardships we all face in life and love. Kim mentioned she wanted a good book to read before bed. This one just might keep her up. 
    Erika David, editorial assistant

    One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter by Scaachi Koul

    "Any collection of essays that has the first line "Only idiots aren't afraid of flying" immediately has my heart—but what really takes this bright and biting debut by a Canadian to the top of my recommended reading list for Kim and friends is how flippin' funny it is, which Kardashians and more mortals alike is something we all need a good helping of right about now."
    – Sarah Laing, culture editor
