#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!
It’s time for another 5 On My TBR and the theme for this week certainly made me think. The theme is celebrity/famous and it took me a minute to figure out how I wanted to interpret this. Did I want to choose books written about celebrities or famous people? Did I want to choose fiction where the main character is a celebrity or famous? What I ended up choosing are books written by a celebrity!
It was literally the only way I could get to five books 😂
I’m not one who follows celebrities and their lives and I’m not a huge fan of memoirs. So there was a moment where I didn’t think I would have enough books to do this week’s post! But I found five books on my TBR that fit the bill. Let’s get to the list so I can share them with you.
#1. Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Amy Poehler is probably one of my favorite comediennes on the planet. I loved her in Parks & Rec and I feel like this book would be a lot of fun. I also wouldn’t mind learning more about her as a person. She just seems like she would be cool to hang out with, ya know? Anyways, that’s why this memoir (not my favorite genre, as we’ve established) has stuck around on my TBR.
#2. America (The Book) by Jon Stewart
I was a big Daily Show fan back when Jon Stewart was the host. Not saying Trevor Noah is bad, just that I no longer have cable. That’s probably why this book ended up on my TBR. I like his humor and learning more about politics and civics, so this seemed like a perfect fit for me! We’ll see if I ever actually read it, though, because I always forget it’s a thing 😅
