#IMAGEReads: 3 celebrity fiction books you won’t be able to put down

#IMAGEReads: 3 celebrity fiction books you won’t be able to put down

Celebrities are putting pen to paper quite a bit these days, but who stands out amongst the crowd of starry-eyed wannabe fiction writers? Jennifer McShane picks three favourites


Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks (William Heinemann, approx. €11.99, out now)

Tom Hank’s (yes, that Tom Hanks) first work of fiction is a tomb of short stories all linked in some form by a typewriter. Major or minute it’s interweaved in every tale: from the second-rate actor suddenly plunged into stardom to the teenager who suddenly stumbles into his father’s secret life. It’s a wonderful read and a sign that maybe Hanks is ready to give up the day job.

Bonfire by Krysten Ritter (Hutchinson, approx. €10.99, out now)

It has been ten years since Abby Williams left home and her small town roots. But when her job as an environmental lawyer leads her back she begins to find strange connections to a decade-old scandal involving Kaycee Mitchell – the popular girl who vanished without a trace. Soon troubling secrets and dark memories begin to resurface – and consume Abby. It’s dark but compulsively readable.

Mirror, Mirror by Cara Delevingne (Trapeze, approx. €12.99, out now)

Sixteen-year-old friends Red, Rose, Leo and Naomi are misfits, excited about the future of their band Mirror, Mirror, and trying to make sense of who they want to be. Appearances – and lives – are cracked and upended when Naomi ends up seriously injured. How did they miss the warning signs? A confident read about friendship, identity and betrayal.
