Reading Up with the Kardashians

You like, need to give these books a try. Bible.

In honor of Stormi’s grand entrance, I’d like to dedicate this post to folks who tune into E! for their weekly dose of Calabasas’s First Family (read: Kris Jenner’s army of PR pros). 

If you don’t catch my drift, we get it—you’re too cool for low-brow television. Move along.

For everyone else, you’ve got to admit that the love-to-hate family can be relatable. In fact, I’ll bet you know which Kardashian speaks to your soul, deep down inside.

Which is why, Swooners, I’m listing TBR titles for each member of the clan. Now hurry and don your Kardashian Sorting Hat (er, Prada bow?), pick your poison, and read away.

Can we say micromanager? You’re business savvy and cutthroat. You know how to spin a situation to benefit from it. You like to party. Age is just a number. You are your own greatest love.

You’re the introvert of your family. You have a few core friends but prefer quiet nights vs. ragers. You’re hardworking and focused on your career. You often long to talk to your big sisters when you’re traveling for work.

You’re the baby of the family, but you’ve had to grow up fast. You’re insecure and not sure who you’re supposed to be. Sometimes you get caught up in celebrity culture, but you’re learning about yourself along the way. You have a big heart.
