Ann can often be found walking very slowly through the aisles of bookstores, making sure that nothing new has come out she doesn’t know about yet, and then eagerly telling people about them. She writes about women from history at, and about books, film, TV, and feminism at various other sites. She prefers her books to include at least three excellent plot twists, which is why she usually reads the end first. Twitter: @annfosterwriter

Unicorns have been the popular mythical creature for years now, as our recent master list of unicorn books for children and teens can attest. Not to be left out, there is a burgeoning genre of unicorn self-help books for grown-ups now too!

Thus far, unicorn self-help books seem to be primarily coming from a white, heteronormative point of view. The closest book we could find from a non-white point of view is Tiffany Haddish’s hilarious book of essays, The Last Black Unicorn, which isn’t really about unicorns but is fun, so you may as well read it too. Plus, its cute unicorny cover would look great on your shelf next to any of the titles listed above.
