What do a former Disney Channel star, a stand-up comedian, a rapper, and an atheist have in common?
They are all authors of books on this week’s trending books list!
The top trending book this week was Demi Lovato’s Staying Strong: 365 Days A Year. The former child star’s book of positive quotes, messages, and goals will surely inspire young fans. Perhaps Lovato could take a page from her own book, however, as tabloids recently reported that she is in a Twitter feud with former Disney friend-turned foe, Selena Gomez.
For something a bit more raunchy, check out Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child by Bert Kreischer. Kreischer, a stand-up comedian and the inspiration for National Lampoon’s Van Wilder details his evolution from a frat boy at Florida State to his current state as a “man-child.” This one is sure to stir up some controversy.
Speaking of controversy, Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion also occupies a place on this week’s trending list. In his bestseller, Dawkins, a former Oxford professor and prominent atheist, claims that there is no “supernatural creator.” While published in 2006, Dawkins’ book may once again be trending due to a recent feud with Angelina Jolie, which began after he claimed that parents should not tell their children to believe in Santa Claus or fairy tales.
In 1999, rapper Ja Rule released his debut single, “Holla Holla.” Now, fifteen years and multiple Grammy nominations later, Ja Rule has decided to give writing a try with his new memoir, Unruly. The rapper tells all in this top trending book, discussing the lifestyle changes he made to overcome his past criminal issues and become a responsible family man.
