Celebrity Memoirs On My To-Read List

Posted January 26, 2020 by shooting in Discussion / 29 Comments

I actually own a lot of celebrity memoirs that I need to still read, but I figured I’d share a list of ones that I have not purchased yet…but I want them! Do you want to read any of these – and if you already have, what did you think?!

Celebrity Memoirs on my To-Read list...do we have any in common? #bookbloggers #ontheblog Click To Tweet

Blood by Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Nick Jonas, with Neill Strauss

I’ve always been a fan of the Jonas Brothers, so I’m curious about their memoir. I feel like they are the type of guys that would be pretty open and honest about things they’ve gone through.

Me by Elton John

Who doesn’t love Elton John? This is his first ever autobiography, and I think it will be fascinating!

High School by Tegan Quin, Sara Quin

Tegan and Sara Quin are twins who perform together – and they are both lesbians. I think this memoir, that looks back on their high school days, will be really intriguing. I love their music and I was excited when I learned they were releasing a memoir, so I need to get my hands on a copy!

The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman

I love these two, and I love that they’re married and have a memoir together!! Also, don’t you love the cover?

Gracefully You: Finding Beauty and Balance in the Everyday by Jenna Dewan

I don’t know a ton about Jenna, but I’ve essentially been following her for years – starting with her Step Up days. I don’t know how much of this is a memoir, per se, but I am curious to see what she has to say about living well.

Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See in Front of Me by Justin Timberlake

I’ve been a fan of Justin’s since his time with Nsync, so I’m excited to check out his memoir. I never know how open celebrities will be in their memoirs, but I’m willing to give it a shot – and I definitely want to see what Justin has to say about his life and passions.

  1. I feel like Elton John’s will be fascinating – you are so right! Also, while I haven’t read any of these, I definitely recommend Born a Crime and Becoming, if you haven’t read them yet. Also, Furiously Happy was fantastic! (Not that you were looking for more to add to your TBR…)

  2. I want to read Elton John’s book too! I have the Nick Offerman/Megan Mullally book because I love them too, I will say it’s a bit harder to read, it reads like a script where they are talking back and forth to each other. I kind of wish I had done it as an audio book. I want to check out Justin Timberlake’s book too!

    I have to admit, that I have never read a memoir, but now Im kinda thinking I need to look up all the celebrities and see whats out there! LOL . Thanks for always inspiring me to read something different!

  4. Oh wow I had no idea JT had a memoir! I love memoirs but I don’t usually get into celebrity ones–mostly because I am just not up on my pop culture, ha!

  5. Jen

    The Megan and Nick cover is epic! My daughter and I did watch a little of the Netflix bio about the Jonas brothers, but I guess I missed they have a book. Good to know!

  6. Hi Lauren, first, I had no idea these books existed (for shame). I gather many are new releases? I think EJ would have the most interesting memoir by far. Rock n Roll in the heydays and everything ELSE. But I have to say I love the Offerman/Mullaly duo. Also, JT? His will be intellectual I have a feeling. Last, the Quin sisters are Canadian women and broke through into the pop scene when they were still teens. Theirs no doubt would also be an interesting story. I think their cover is the best one. Thanks for sharing these, Lauren and I look forward to reading your review of one or two when you finish 😀

    Until the Jonas bros reformed, I never really was interested in them, but I find myself curious about them more and more these days. (Sucker is so catchy!)

  8. I haven’t heard of most of these (I LOVE LOVE LOVE that cover for the Greatest Love Story Ever Told). Quite a few on here that I would definitely be interested in reading myself–Elton John’s especially, because what a life he’s led 🙂

  9. I used to be such a fan of celebrity memoirs, like a decade ago. Especially funny ones, those were my jam! But I think since reading fiction, they’ve kind of fell by the wayside for whatever reason. I want to read Michelle Obama’s, and Trevor Noah’s very much. One of these days! Hope you enjoy all of these!
