Mean girls

Three new books focus on women whom, for various reasons, you don't want to mess with.

Chicks With Guns (Vendome) by Lindsay McCrum is a book of artful photos of women with their firearms — teens and grandmothers, in camo or bridal gowns, perched on a plane wing or sitting in a wheelchair —with brief interviews.

Gossip Girl Psycho Killer (Poppy) by Cecily von Ziegesar is a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies take on the bestselling teen series, with the author gleefully spoofing her own books and taking rich-girl backstabbing to a whole new level.

If It Was Easy, They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon: Living With and Loving the TV-Addicted, Sex-Obsessed, Not-So-Handy Man You Married (Berkley) by Jenna McCarthy is a born-from-a-blog, snarky but sensible relationship guide, peppered with reader posts called "At Least You're Not Married to Him."
