4 Celebrity Memoirs We're Excited to Read in 2017
Celebrity memoirs can go one of two ways: Some are vain and boring, while others provide a fascinating look into the minds of people we’ve long admired. We have a feeling the following four titles—all coming out this year—will fall into the latter category.
“We: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere” by Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel (March 7)
X-Files star Anderson has teamed up with journalist Nadel to write a rallying call for women everywhere. Inspiring and provocative, it challenges the annoying concept of women “having it all,” and instead, using the authors' personal experiences and career trajectories, focuses on maximizing happiness and fulfillment. It’s actionable and girl power-y—just the kind of book we need right now.
“Ballerina Body” by Misty Copeland (March 21)
Following her 2014 memoir, the incredible Misty Copeland (the American Ballet Theater’s first black female principal dancer) has written a health and fitness book with meal plans, workout routines and motivational tips to read when you just want to eat a bucket of cheese fries.
“Nevertheless” by Alec Baldwin (April 7)
OK, ridiculously dramatic cover aside, we’re actually super jazzed to read about Baldwin’s life in his own words. Between iconic roles (ahem, Jack Donaghy), fights with paparazzi and crazy voicemails, we’re assuming there’s no shortage of juicy details.
“The Secrets of My Life” by Caitlyn Jenner (April 25)
Spanning her childhood, Olympic triumph and transition, Jenner's memoir promises to dive even deeper into the life of someone whose every move has been picked apart for the better part of a decade.
