Vote up the books that only the Ashleys you knew in high school claim as their favorites.

Chances are, you either know a basic b*tch, or you are one yourself. She can be spotted a mile away: she's sipping her pumpkin spice latte, wearing yoga pants, and probably has one of the following books in her tote bag.

Books basic b*tches like share some common ground. They might be written specifically for women, like the steamy Fifty Shades of Grey series. Or maybe they're intended to be inspirational to their readers - who hasn't heard of the supposedly life-changing qualities of the nonfiction hits Eat, Pray, Love or Wild? But that's not to say that books for basic girls can't be classics. Ask any woman you know how they feel about Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, and you're likely to get a sigh of adoration in response.

These popular nonfiction works and novels, old and new, are beloved by basic bitches everywhere. Read through this list of basic b*tch books, and vote your personal picks for the most basic of all up to the top of the list.
