In natural Kristine fashion, when I find out a famous person wrote a book I immediately have to pick it up. Why? I hope to get a glimpse into their private life.
I came across some of these books because I follow the celebrity in the media. Others came to me as hidden gems, uncovered by my thorough book search.
Below is a list of books written by celebrities that I picked up in the recent months. Most of them I liked, some of them I thought could be better, but all of them I recommend.
Here they are:
