10 Celebrities Who Wrote Fiction Books Based on Their Life Story

Maybe these should be filed under autobiography.

By: Taylor Davis

If you’ve owned cable at any point from 2004-2010, you know who Lauren Conrad is because the girl was everywhere all the time. She was super busy sitting on Laguna Beach and galavanting through the hills, but somehow she still found the time to add “author” to her lengthy resume. Her first book, LA Candy, was adored, acknowledged or at least seen by every middle and high schooler in America when it first came out in 2009. The book is about a girl, Jane, who moves to LA and suddenly becomes the star of a reality show and the consequential realization that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. Sound familiar? It’s a novel, but it literally sounds like she took her personal diary The Hills DVD collection and revamped it into a book.

LC isn’t the only celeb that’s written a book that maybe should have been filed under “autobiography” instead of “fiction.” Check out these other 10 books that are basically the life story of the celebrity who wrote them.
