 A Weekly Meme Hosted by Booking Through Thursday 

From Booking Through Thursdays:

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 have a goal to read more biographies to review for the site. To date I have read a interview type book with Al Pacino, not yet reviewed, which I ordered because I always found him to be a fascinating actor. I also ordered Christophers Reeves self auto-biography, which I hope to get to very soon, for I always loved the things I knew about the man and find him interesting. I have read two national enquirer releases, which I reviewed - poorly - about Rosie O'Donnell and Julia Roberts. I also read and reviewed Stephen Kings writing book, which is half of a biography of sorts.

I am interested in biographies in general and would love to find one on James Stewart, perhaps Alfred Hitchcock, and just anyone with an intriguing life. Oh, and as a kid I remember reading the short autobiography written by Judy Blume, who I still greatly admire as a writer. I've always wanted to read a biography about VC Andrews but that will never come to pass in a satifyable way because she was so private and leery of the media because of a bad interview. It just seems like she had a ... unique way of living and I always respected her as well.
