Celebrities Are Funny.
Well, some of them. And some of them have recently published humorous books.
I am the first to admit I love a good celebrity memoir. So I wanted to share a list of books by celebrities from 2016 that made me laugh.
If you read one (or all) of these, let me know what you think in the comments!

Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo
by Amy Schumer
Stand up comedian and actress, Amy Schumer released her first autobiography in August 2016. Full of whit and humor that is clearly all Amy Schumer, I snickered through the whole book. Honestly, I found parts of the book pretty raunchy but that is Schumer’s style. Of course, I wanted to know more about the lower back tattoo which she didn’t get to until the last chapter.
Girl with The Lower Back Tattoo is one book readers, and lovers of Amy Schumer, will enjoy thoroughly.
The Princess Diarist
by Carrie Fisher
Two months before Star Wars’ Rogue One AND her sudden death, Carrie Fisher published her 6th book, The Princess Diarist. More than any other book she has written, The Princess Diarist gives readers insight on Carrie when she was filming the first Star Wars. In fact, parts of the book were excerpts of Carrie’s journal.
Filled with Carrie’s witty, gritty, and no-holds-back character, The Princess Diarist will please.
Talking As Fast As I Can
by Lauren Graham
Lauren Graham doesn’t fall far from her character, Lorelei Gilmore. (Or is it the other way around?) Published in November 2016, this is actually Lauren’s second book (first nonfiction book). Lauren’s writing reflects her character, humor, and love of others.
Warning: Talking As Fast As I Can will fill you with nostalgia for Gilmore Girls, love for Lauren Graham, and laughter for days.
The Magnolia Story
by Chip and Joanna Gaines
Chip and Joanna are loved by any HGTV fan. And any fans of Fixer Upper know how funny and organically entertaining the duo are! The Magnolia Story is about how they met, fell in love, started their family, grew their business, and were discovered by HGTV. I wrote a full review here.
The Magnolia Story made me fall in love with Chip and Joanna again, and made me laugh at some situations they (or should I say Chip) found themselves in.
Where Am I Now?
by Mara Wilson
Okay, maybe this one is not laugh-out-loud funny, but I definitely smiled a great deal throughout Where Am I Now?. Mara gives longtime fans an inside look at days on the set of Matilda and Mrs. Doubtfire, as well as her personal life growing up and what she is up to now.
Mara is an excellent storyteller, as displayed by her debut book published in September 2016. An excellent mix between deep emotion and Mara humor, this one is a must-read.
Scrappy Little Nobody
by Anna Kendrick
The Twilight and Pitch Perfect star recounts her life so far, including her unusual childhood actress experiences to “making it big” but still sleeping on her Ikea bed. Anna articulates what many are thinking about dating duds, our ability to hole up in our apartment for days, bonding over thinking someone is crazy, and much more.
Published in November 2016, Scrappy Little Nobody is packed with humor that you expect from a Scrappy Little Nobody. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
