While I was supposed to be saving money in January, I did accidentally end up having a freezer week in the days leading up to pay day because I spent a little more than I should have on books. Happens to the best of us, right?

Challenge criteria: A book you chose for the cover.
Natasha: I’m a girl who believes in science and facts. Not fate. Not destiny. Or dreams that will never come true. I’m definitely not the kind of girl who meets a cute boy on a crowded New York City street and falls in love with him. Not when my family is twelve hours away from being deported to Jamaica. Falling in love with him won’t be my story.
When I was originally tagged to do this by Emma, it was August and a lot sooner to the middle of the year time frame for which the tag was originally intended. For now, it’s come to the end of 2016 and I still haven’t taken the tag. With a little sneaky title change, that’s easy to overcome, and it became the End of Year Book Tag, perfect for 2017.
While authors indeed do a stellar job at keeping us going, there are a number of celebrities who have also dipped their pen into the inkwell. While many of their books are autobiographical, there are some great fiction reads to have a look at too.
For the purpose of this post, a celebrity who wrote a book doesn’t qualify if they also have a career as an author, or started out working as an author.
For me, 2016 was full of fantastic reads that I would definitely return to in a heartbeat. I’ve awarded several books a five star review here and on Goodreads, where the awards generally line up.
I don’t often give reviews on Goodreads, but here’s my make up for that. This is why I gave the following books five stars. The books appear in no particular order, so there’s no one book I favoured over the year.
