Book Review: Seriously... I'm Kidding

Are you a fan of Ellen Degeneres? If so, look into her new book Seriously... I'm Kidding. I am a huge fan of hers, and this book is hysterical! I couldn't read it right before bed simply because it made me laugh so hard. I normally don't read humorous books, but this is an exception I was happy to make!


Goodreads says about Seriously... I'm Kidding:

"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.


The book made me laugh all the way through. If you want a chuckle, check out this book. It certainly isn't my usual genre, but I would read another book of Ellen's in a heartbeat!

  4. Thanks for the recommendation. I'm guessing this one will rank right up there with my other two favorites:
    A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson and Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. Laugh until it hurts -- one of my favorite things to do.
