Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Honestly… I wrote this post and decided it was too boring. I basically watch my beloved kid play soccer, PAC12 Women’s Basketball, and TV dance competitions. Sometimes I ride my bicycle, take walks, do puzzles and camp. There you have it. Now for a book related post…
Celebrity Memoirs Worth Reading
1. Open Book
Author: Jessica Simpson
This really did feel like an open look into Jessica Simpson’s life. She didn’t seem to hold back. I’m sure she did in some ways, but I got to know her in ways I didn’t think I would through this memoir.
2. Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll
Authors: Ann Wilson, Nancy Wilson
I found this one fascinating being from the PNW and loving some of their music. It was interesting to hear their rise to fame and the lifestyles they led. There’s some cool stuff about the 90’s and grunge involved in parts.
Author: Michelle Obama
Michelele Obama is a smart woman. She is/was more than just the First Lady. I loved learning about her life, her relationships with her husband, and what Presidential life was like.
4. The Greatest Love Story Ever Told
Authors: Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman
This is probably one of my favorite celebrity memoirs ever. If I had to describe it in one word it would be fun. These two were candid, funny, and a good time. I listened to it, which was amazing as they go back and forth. Then, I dropped by the bookstore to look at the pictures in the book because I was curious.
5. Scrappy Little Nobody
Author: Anna Kendrick
I’m a big Pitch Perfect fan and also a fan of Anna Kendrick’s. She tells some fun stories with humor only the way Anna Kendrick can.
6. Yes, My Accent Is Real: and Some Other Things I Haven’t Told You
Author: Kunal Nayyar
The Big Bang Theory will always be one of my favorite sitcoms. I loved hearing stories about Kunal Nayyar’s youth and his rise to stardom. He’s hilarious.
7. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
Author: Mindy Kaling
A celebrity memoir list would not be complete without Mindy Kaling. This book is like having a chat with your best friend. If you love Mindy Kaling, you will love this book.
8. Inside Out
Author: Demi Moore
Demi Moore speaking her truth sure was interesting and engaging. I don’t know that I 100% believe everything she told me, but it was fun. If only Ashton would release a memoir of his own…
9. Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song
Author: Sara Barielles
Sara Barielles is a singer who caught my attention as a judge on The Sing Off. I wanted to learn more about her, so I listened to this book. I highly recommend listening to this one because each chapter starts out with one of her songs and it’s delightful to listen to her sing and tell you about her life.
Authors: Kristin Hensley, Jen Smedley
Their brand of humor probably isn’t for everyone, but I read this book after laughing so hard at their comedy special. My husband didn’t think it was quite as funny as I did, so I would say it’s for the moms out there.
