A Day in the Life: Best Celebrity Memoirs

You know you’ve really made it as a celebrity when you’re famous enough to put out a memoir. While many celebrity memoirs can be self-indulgent and badly written, here are 10 of our favorite celeb penned books that will make you laugh, make you cry, and perhaps make you see the author in a whole new light.

Tina Fey’s Bossypants

Written by SNL alumni and 30 Rock creator Tina Fey, Bossypants isn’t recommended for your morning commute. But only because it’ll have you snorting out loud on the subway. Fey’s self-deprecating self-reflections and fascinating childhood stories range from hilarious, to dark, to downright embarrassing.

Our favorite chapter is called “Dear Internet” in which she addresses the musings of anonymous commenters: “’Tina Fey is an ugly, pear-shaped, bitchy, overrated troll.’ … To say I’m an overrated troll, when you have never even seen me guard a bridge, is patently unfair.”

Bossypants was published in 2011 and has sold over 3.75 million copies to date.
