Open Book | Jessica Simpson
16 posts | 8 read | 4 reading | 13 to read
Jessica reveals for the first time her inner monologue and most intimate struggles. Guided by the journals she's kept since age fifteen, and brimming with her unique humor and down-to-earth humanity, Open Book is as inspiring as it is entertaining. This was supposed to be a very different book. Five years ago, Jessica Simpson was approached to write a motivational guide to living your best life. She walked away from the offer, and nobody understood why. The truth is that she didnt want to lie. Jessica couldnt be authentic with her readers if she wasnt fully honest with herself first. Now Americas Sweetheart, preachers daughter, pop phenomenon, reality tv pioneer, and the billion-dollar fashion mogul invites readers on a remarkable journey, examining a life that blessed her with the compassion to help others, but also burdened her with an almost crippling need to please. Open Book is Jessica Simpson using her voice, heart, soul, and humor to share things shes never shared before. First celebrated for her voice, she became one of the most talked-about women in the world, whether for music and fashion, her relationship struggles, or as a walking blonde joke. But now, instead of being talked about, Jessica is doing the talking. Her book shares the wisdom and inspirations shes learned and shows the real woman behind all the pop-culture clichs chicken or fish, Daisy Duke, "football jinx," mom jeans, sexual napalm and more. Open Book is an opportunity to laugh and cry with a close friend, one that will inspire you to live your best, most authentic life, now that she is finally living hers.

Finished up Finger Lickin Fifteen and started this whole #Audiocooking this morning. Made a delicious chicken pot pie to get me though a few cold days. The best part of a homemade pie is I can put whatever I want in it so this is this just chicken, broccoli and cream is chicken soup. Yum.

ljuliel Gosh does that look good ! I haven‘t made chicken pot pie in years. I might just have to remedy that one of these days. (edited) 5d
Bookjunkie57 @ljuliel this is only the second one I‘ve ever made. It is perfect comfort food. 5d

This is deeper and more honest than I was expecting, even after @britt_brooke ‘s review. Yet she‘s still fun.

Jessica may be a billionaire media star, but she‘s experienced a lot of the ups, downs, mistakes, and joys we all have. Very relatable. I‘m glad she‘s found peace. (Especially after John Mayer. Ugh. He‘s worse than his music!)

Dcueto I just listened to chapter 5 via audio, where Sarah dies, and I teared up. 1w
Megabooks @Dcueto I teared up there too...and in the acknowledgements 😢 1w

Crazeedi @Megabooks I'm hanging in there! Witing for spring already! 😉💕 7d
Megabooks Good! I‘ve been thinking about you and enjoying winter! Love the cold!! 7d
britt_brooke I‘m so happy you liked this! It pleasantly surprised me. Also, screw John Mayer. What a manipulative asshole. And his music sucks anyway. 🙉 (edited) 5d
Megabooks @britt_brooke I was only slightly surprised that he was that terrible. Anyone who would say “sexual napalm” to a national magazine is an ass!! And his music does suck. And this was a good, fun book. Hit all the right spots of a celebrity memoir. 5d
britt_brooke @Megabooks 🤣🤣 Dead. ⚰️ You‘re so right. I wasn‘t exactly surprised by his disgustingness either. 5d

Skeebies05 So so so good!! 1w

Megabooks @britt_brooke it is juicy! But you know, I couldn‘t think of one of her songs before this! 😂😂 I‘m reading the ebook. 1w
britt_brooke @Megabooks She really didn‘t have that many hits. She was more famous for her love life, I think. 1w
Megabooks @britt_brooke when I got to the part about the one with the Jack and Diane riff, I remembered that. 1w
britt_brooke @Megabooks Ugh, yeah. I hated that one. 🙉 1w

I laughed and cried and did a ton of googling of old pictures during this book. I‘ve always liked her and now I love her. And she is kind of a bad bitch. I had a drummer dump me via a text and some bullshit song lyrics too 🤷🏽‍♀️ So apparently thats a musician thing🙄🙄. One of my fav quotes. So take that, Nick!!!

While sitting here I finished this one! It was great and very detailed. I didnt know Simpson had been thru so much but very glad to see her turn it around. I used to of course follow her when she was with Nick Lachey but after that that was it. It was nice that she narrated it and about 90% of it she sounded emotional.

Dcueto Ahhhhh she was my favorite growing up (90s girl here) and I‘m so excited for this 1w
rather_be_reading @Dcueto she wasnt my fav but def growing up in that era made me excited for this one 1w

Ok I‘m not sure what the HECK I was thinking but...😅🤦🏽‍♀️ it‘s like my 17 year old self temporarily took over my brain or something 😕 I like Jessica, but this was not memorable at all, and there were lots of times I cringed. There were some nice ‘behind the music‘ scenes from the making of her albums + TV show. Plus she shared some tidbits about her and John; but I kept wanting to DNF this and at one point I could barely go on. 😪
⭐️ ⭐️/5

HOTPock3tt I used an Audible credit on this so I owned it whether I finished it or not... that was some motivation to hang in there 😐 2w
Birdsong28 @HOTPock3tt Just return the book and you will get your credit back! 📚 📖 2w
britt_brooke @HOTPock3tt You can return it and get your credit back if you didn‘t enjoy it. I‘ve done it a few times. 2w
HOTPock3tt @Birdsong28 @britt_brooke Thanks for letting me know guys! ♥️ I‘m newer to using audible... (edited) 2w

A solid 3.5 stars — I felt she was very honest and came across with a writing style that felt like she was a friend. Her struggles with alcohol were the most surprising to me and honestly, I wish she‘d spent more time on that...but perhaps that‘s something she‘s still working through.

Her mom‘s aerobics class was called Jump for Jesus. Man, in my head, Jessica and I are best friends. She‘s so funny!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A short digression: I once saw 98° before they were famous. Small town free concert, ha! Anyway, it‘s so hard not to like Jessica Simpson. In this candid memoir, she shares her life story thus far including details of her very public, high-profile relationships. Juicy? Yes. But also brutal. Her endearing nature makes me believe her side. I had no idea she has battled addiction. This is a solid and emotional celebrity memoir.

Cinfhen I love me some honest, juicy celebrity memoirs! I‘ll have to see if it‘s available on Scribd 💚Nick Lachey was super hot back in the day😉 2w
britt_brooke @Cinfhen He sure was! Of course, the highlight of the show was when he took his shirt off, which, looking back, seems weird. 😆 15 year old me was okay with it, though. 🙈 2w
Megabooks Lol!! 15 year old Britt! Was it in Paducah? I know the band is from Cincy. I‘m trying to decide whether to read this. She‘s not a favorite celeb. 🤔 but did she ever figure out chicken of the SEA is tuna??? 2w

britt_brooke @Megabooks Yep! It was at the Paducah riverfront! My mom dropped off and picked up me and my girls. 😆 In this book, she actually makes fun of her dumb moments. I was never a huge fan of her music, but there‘s something about her I like. I can‘t pinpoint it. 2w
Cinfhen Hahahahaha, I totally remember that comment @Megabooks 🐟 2w
britt_brooke @Cinfhen @Megabooks She talks about it - and other dumb moments - in the book. 😆 2w
