Review: Seriously . . . I’m Kidding by Ellen de Generes

Challenge criteria: A best seller from the year you graduated high school

Blurb:

“Sometimes the greatest things are the most embarrassing.” Ellen Degeneres’ winning, upbeat candor has made her show one of the most popular, resilient and honored daytime shows on the air. (To date, it has won no fewer than 31 Emmys.) Seriously… I’m Kidding, Degeneres’ first book in eight years, brings us up to date about the life of a kindhearted woman who bowed out of American Idol because she didn’t want to be mean. Lively; hilarious; often sweetly poignant.

More Celebrity Books I’ve Loved

Much as I love fiction, I do also love a little bit of non fiction from time to time. I admit, most of the non fiction books I read tend to be celebrity autobiographies. Even then, a lot of them are comedians. I’m not saying I have form, but yeah, I have form.

Some of these are a little based on the writer’s stand up routines, so you do need to keep in mind that if you’ve seen their shows it’s going to be more than a little familiar. If you’ve got a funny bone, you’ll really love these.
