Celebrity Books

Do you ever read books written by celebrities? I must admit that I'm partial to the odd celebrity cookbook (namely Jamie Oliver) but I don't seem to spend much time reading celebrity autobiographies, biographies or memoirs. I can understand the appeal though, I'm sure that many celebrities have led very interesting lives that would be fascinating to read about. The only celebrity book I own is Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis, frontman of the Red Hot Chili Peppers which I bought and read (and enjoyed) before I saw the band in concert.

One thing I definitely don't understand is when young celebrities try to cash in on their fame and have their biographies written when they are obviously going to keep on living and doing things with their lives; it's like they'll need to keep rereleasing every few years. Maybe they could have their biographies in volumes!

So what about you - have you read many celebrity books? What famous person's life did you find interesting? Or totally uninteresting?!


  1. Thank you for commenting, link exchange?

  2. I read Tori Amos' Piece by Piece and part of Bob Dylan's Chronicles part 1. Oh and I once got this book at a garage sale about Brooke Sheilds written when she was a teen and it was HILAR!

  3. Just discovered your blog today through Liking, it's so wonderful, finally a blog not about fashion!

    Anyway, I love auto- and biographies. The Dirt, written by the members of Motley Crue is one of my favourites, as is Nikki Sixx's Heroin Diaries, I thought it was so interesting. Scar Tissue was wonderful too.

    I'm a sucker for rock n' roll books.

  4. I read the inside flap of Britney Spears' YA novel and it looks good. But it's always the fact that it's BRITNEY SPEARS' book that keeps me from reading it!

  5. Britney Spears wrote a book?! Why did I not know this!! Oh myyyy!

  6. Very goοd website you haѵe here but

  7. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
