Autobiographies I Wouldn’t Get Bored Reading (probably).

Hi, hey, hello and happy Thursday 🙂

About a week ago I read, and absolutely loved, my first Autobiography which was Becoming by Michelle Obama and I’m now feeling like I want to read more so today I’m going to be talking about people whose autobiography I would totally read.

I feel like if I was going to read a full length book on somebody’s life I’d have to be really invested and interested in them and their story/journey whatever you want to call it, so there’s really not many but here are four people whose biographies I want to read:

Jameela Jamil

I’m starting with Jameela, most known for playing Tahani on The Good Place, because she doesn’t actually have an autobiography out (yet) but if she did I would have it on pre-order immediatley.

As well as being an actress she’s also an activist who talks openly about her battle with anorexia and fights against celebrities trying to sell dieting teas and pills. I’m very interested in reading about her life experiences and how she overcome so much as well as.

I think she’s a great role model, especially for young girls experiencing body issues, who owns her past mistakes but is striving to make a change for the better.

Jameela please write a book I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

Tan France

I actually don’t know why I want to read his auto so bad. I only really know him from Queer Eye and that series where he dresses comedians but I like him.

I like his humour and I think he’s just a genuinely lovely person from what I’ve seen of him on TV. I also want to read about his experiences of growing up gay in the UK. I’m from England and yet I know more about LGBT+ community in US then back home.

I don’t know but I’m considering picking this up soon.

Elton John

He’s just a legend. I haven’t watched Rocketman, the movie based off his life, yet and I’ve got to admit that I want to watch that movie half because of Elton John but also half because of Taron Egerton who plays him.

Me wanting to read his Auto would be me fully wanting to read his words and his opinion on everything

Me by Elton John actually comes out some time in October so maybe I’ll watch the movie and then go back and read everything from his point of view.

Little Mix

I am a full on Little Mix stan. I remember back in 2011 when they were on X-Factor, I was only 9 and I desperately wanted to win. I used to cross my fingers that they’d get through each week and since then I feel like I’ve grown up with them.

Every single one of them are amazing in their own way and recently they’ve been talking more about the issues and things they’ve experienced not only as a group like: the sexism of the industry, getting told to suck up to powerful male producers, etc.

But also individually: Perrie and her anxiety, Leigh-Anne with the racism she’s experienced, Jade’s eating disorder and Jessy’s depression and almost suicide attempt (she just released a documentary on cyber bullying and everyone needs to watch).

So there we go, 4 autobiographies I’m dying to read, at least these are the ones I’m most interested in. If anyone has any other recommendations I’d love to hear them. 🙂 Thanks for reading.

  1. I don’t usually love celebrity memoirs but I though Tan France’s book was amazing. I highly recommend the audiobook!

    I can not wait for Elton John’s book. Guess who narrates the audiobook–Taron!! Rocketman is one of my favourite movies and I mostly went because of Taron Egerton as well. He was brilliant!

    1. Taron Egertons narrating as well! Their friendship is so unexpected and I love it.

      We’ve been holding out on my dad to watch the Rocketman movie but he’s basically been away working all summer. He comes home next week so I can finally watch it.

  2. Naturally Tan is definitely a very interesting read.. The audio is even more amazing because he narrates it himself… Another favorite of mine is Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. It’s probably my most favorite memoir of all time.
