Booking Through Thursday: Celebrities

Thanks to Deb for hosting Booking Through Thursday every week!

Here's this week's question:

Do you read celebrity memoirs? Which ones have you read or do you want to read? Which nonexistent celebrity memoirs would you like to see?

I'm not much of a memoir reader, no matter if it's about a celebrity or a regular Joe. Probably the only book that would even remotely qualify as a "celebrity" memoir that I've read would be "My Sergei" by Ekaterina Gordeeva. That book was about her life as a pairs skater with her husband, Sergei Grinkov, who passed away about 10 years ago. The 2 of them were paired up as skating partners at a very young age, and what started out as just getting the job done on the ice one day blossomed into love. No doubt about it....this book will leave you in tears.

The only book that's out that I'm even remotely interested in reading in the future would be the newest book by Melissa Gilbert called Prairie Tale. I grew up watching Little House on the Prairie (have since purchased all the seasons on DVD), and I am just flat-out addicted to the show to this day. I read an excerpt online from the book, and just from that little snippet, I am very eager to read more. Just wanna wait until I can find it on sale somewhere.....$26 is a lot for a book, IMO, especially for someone who doesn't do memoirs. :)

What about you? Any celebrity memoir that you're interested in?


  1. I do what to read the book 'My Sergei' I remember when that happened. Good answers. I couldn't think of one I would want to read.

  2. 'My Sergei' sounds interesting. I will have to look it up.

  3. The two that you mentioned sound interesting.

  4. Oh, I just realized I did read My Sergei. Didn't consider it a celebrity, as I love those two on the ice. The Melissa Gilbert book sounds like something I would read, as I, too, loved Little House on the Prairie, books and TV shows.


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
