Mitchell and her bestie Michaela Blaney teamed up to write their debut novel "Bliss." Partially inspired by their own fabulous lives, the book follows three best friends as they start to blaze their own #blissful paths separately -- however miserable and magical their journeys may be.
Sophia is an aspiring actress who's realizing her Hollywood dreams might just be out of her grasp. Meanwhile, Sophia's best friend Demi is struggling to pick up the pieces after a bad breakup forces her to come to terms with her own issues. And finally, free-spirited Leandra has her own post-college plans: traveling the world in the yachts, planes and limos of ridiculously wealthy men.
"Bliss" has been a passion project for Mitchell. An avid reader and world traveler, the 28-year-old is always ready for the next adventure -- fictional or not. When you spend the majority of your time traveling the world and being a ***flawless businesswoman, like Mitchell, there's nothing more satisfying than having a good book by your side to balance the craziness of your so-called life.
The "PLL" star knows what it's like to juggle work (read: werk) and play just like her characters. One look at her Insta will have you down a FOMO spiral.
With such a fab life, she must have one heck of a book shelf. MTV News asked Mitchell and her BFF/writing partner/other half Blaney to put together a list of essential reads for twentysomethings. From food to fiction, here are their top picks:
"The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz
"This book is the rules of life, period. There's no better way to enjoy the beach than to broaden your mind while you are at it."
"A Tale of Two Besties: A Hello Giggles Novel" by Sophia Rossi
"Much like us, this tale of true friendship is what we are all about (also from fellow bloggers and besties Sophia Rossi and Zooey Deschanel!)."
"Summer Sisters" by Judy Blume
"This is a classic, albeit for a more mature audience, but a must for every girl's book collection."
"#GirlBoss" by Sophia Amoruso
"Every woman's motivational bible. Sophia Amoruso is kick ass and a total inspiration."
"Real Girl's Kitchen" by Haylie Duff
"This cookbook is great for learning some real meals for the real girl! For foodies like us, cookbooks are like novels. But one, wise word of advice: make sure to read it on a full stomach."
"Front Roe: How to Be the Leading Lady in Your Own Life" by Louise Roe
"This is the fashion bible with easy ways to look chic and dress well with little extras. It's not about buying a new wardrobe; it's about making what you have in your closet work for you. And don't forget, confidence is key!"
