Gorgeous bikini: check. Practical, on-trend footwear: check. Camera-ready airport fashion: check. You're almost all packed for your next sunny vacay. But you can't go before you grab (or download) some indulgently juicy and funny beach reading material. Check our list of celebrity autobiographies that make for the most fun plane and poolside reading ever. (You're welcome!)

1.  The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year by Andy Cohen

If you like celebrity gossip, this is the book for you. Andy Cohen writes this like a diary telling you what he did each day with pals like Anderson Cooper and Sarah Jessica Parker. Never mundane, and never holding back, Andy gossips unabashedly about others in the biz, especially the Bravo Housewives

2.  Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

This new sophomore book looks at how Mindy Kaling made it big, and the struggles she faced professionally up to her show, The Mindy Project — all in a way that will make you literally LOL. She takes us out with her on the Hollywood scene, sharing about the typical L.A. women she meets, the work they all go through to look so good, and her amusing attempt to keep up appearances. 

3.  Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling

Yes, Mindy's so relatable, we had to put her first book on here too: Through funny and touching anecdotes, Mindy touches on her childhood, and the cultural topics related to being Indian American. She writes like she’s telling a story to a friend, which makes this a fast and fun read.

4.  Bossypants by Tina Fey

This could be the funniest book on this list — and that's saying a lot. Tina Fey is a genius and her book will have you hooked from the beginning. She takes us backstage at SNL, and gives the scoop on some of the most famous skits... like her unforgettable role as Sarah Palin. Bossypants takes you all the way to 30 Rock, and how it feels to be a funny woman in charge.

5.  Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler

Chelsea Handler is always over the top, and this book doesn’t disappoint. She tells stories about growing up in New Jersey with her Jewish father and Mormon mother and the trouble and fun she got into once she was grown — mostly self-deprecating stories involving sex and alcohol, so not for the faint of heart. 

6.  Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham

Anyone who has ever watched Girls knows that Lena Dunham is a fantastic writer. Every single story she tells in her book is engaging. Some of the funniest things she shares — for instance about sex and weight — will have you nodding in agreement and cracking up.

7.   Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Funny girl Amy Poehler really shows us what it was like to try to be a comedian. It doesn’t just happen overnight (duh) and many of the comedians you know today went to school together and toured as groups — broke — before making it big. Amy learned from the best and shares about life, love, and of course her friendship with Tina. Which, not unlike Andy's friendship with SJP, totally makes us want to be a third wheel along for the ride!
