Musing Mondays (21st July)


Musing Mondays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits. 
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s). 
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!  
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it. 
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us! 
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
My Musing:

I have just finished reading The Body Book by Cameron Diaz. I have to admit I don’t normally pick books up that are by celebrities (except autobiographies) as I know it’s unlikely they’ve actually written it themselves (yes, this may be a bit snobby of me, but I’m a writer so appreciate the person who wrote the words).  This book isn’t any different except it clearly states the ‘ghost writer’ – Sandra Bark – which is definitely better than trying to imply they had the time and skill to write a book alongside everything else they are doing; though the book is still in first person so it’s impossible to tell how much input Diaz had. I chose to read this book as I read a review on another book blog which piqued my interest, and overall it wasn’t as bad as I was expecting, though the style felt a bit generic (I assume this is from trying to meld two voices together to sound like one, but I can’t know if it would’ve been better if only Diaz or Bark had written it).

Do you read books by celebrities?
