Y'all ain't ready...
As if you needed one more reminder of Amy Poehler‘s excellence, here’s the most awesome picture you’re going to see all day. So, Poehler‘s new book is getting ready to drop, which we learned a while back when saw this sweet cover photo. It’s called Yes Please, and I’m expecting very big things. A few fancy people have received the book ahead of its October 28 release, and have taken to Twitter to give us a sneak peek. Basically? This back cover author photo is the stuff Ron Burgundy dreams are made of. Click inside for more!

"The book is a memoir. Not an autobiography."
Earlier today we learned from Sinéad O’Connor herself that she was planning to expose all of the “sexual dirt” on everyone she’s ever slept with in her new memoir which is due for publication in 2016. Shortly after her comment went viral, she posted a message on her official website backtracking from her original claim. She needed a “funny quote” to go along with the press release about her memoir, she explains, so that’s why she decided to lie about all that “sexual dirt” she said she would expose. Um. What the Hell is going on with Sinéad O’Connor these days?! More »

Exactly what the world has been waiting for
Back in the summer, Irish singer Sinéad O’Connor unveiled a bold new look to go along with the new music she released this year. Today we learn that, in addition to the release of new music this year, O’Connor is readying the release of her memoirs in the spring of 2016. Sinéad‘s new book doesn’t have a title yet but she promises that it will include, among other things, all of the “sexual dirt” on all of the people she has been romantically involved with over the years … which, I’m sure, YOU have been waiting all your life for.

'I feel like there are fifty ways it’s my fault…'
I haven’t picked up Lena Dunham‘s memoir yet, but Not That Kind of Girl is already making headlines for some of its unique subject matter. One particular issue she’s tackling—through her own experiences—is rape, and how to define it. There are many people reading these excerpts, in which she describes a disturbing experience at college (which she comes to classify as rape, so I will too), and they don’t believe that it should be understood as rape. And others are saying it highlights an issue that we have—where if a woman does not expressly say “NO,” consent is assumed. Click inside for more.

Buuuuut, it will come in book-form
So we knew that Disney would be interesting in putting out a sequel to their megahit animated movie Frozen but I don’t think anyone expected a sequel to come so quickly … and in this format. The official follow-up to the Frozen movie will be released in book-form in January with a series of more books to follow thruout 2015. While it’s possible (and very likely) that another Frozen animated film will be released sometime in the future, Disney has decided to cash in on the Frozen phenomenon as soon as possible with this new book series.

For the 50th anniversary of the release of Roald Dahl‘s classic novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Penguin Classics decided to release the book with a new cover meant for an adult audience. As soon as the new book cover was revealed, the backlash was almost immediate.

Check out the book cover below and see what YOU think. More »
