I have been really loving reading celebrity memoirs lately! Not that I ever haven’t enjoyed them, but the ones I’ve read recently have been so good.
My latest read is “Open Book” by Jessica Simpson.
I’ve never been a Jessica Simpson fan; truly never felt one way or another about her, to be honest!
But I heard so many great things about this book and how honest and relatable it is. When I saw the audio version is read by her, I borrowed it from the library and started listening.
Before I go any further, I’ll just say: THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC.
She talks about everything, from growing up in the church (her dad was the pastor for a mega-church), her singing career, dating life, marriage, acting in movies, divorce, all of it.
I was bracing myself for her to talk about her relationship with John Mayer, but I appreciated her honesty. It solidified what I already thought about him: great musician, but ultimately a disgusting prick.
The parts of the book that shocked me more was her journey with weight and addiction (two separate paths). I also found the tidbits about Johnny Knoxville to be fascinating!
I would definitely recommend this book if you’re into music or pop culture. And, the audiobook is fantastic if you’d rather listen!
