Celebrity Books 2015

If there's one thing in the world we all can agree on, it's that we love a celebrity or two. Whether it be a favorite musician, a critically acclaimed actor or actress, or a long-standing political activist, there's at least someone in the celebrity sphere who tickles our fancy. There really is no one season to celebrate celebrities, except maybe the annual award show season. But if you love entertainment culture like we do, celebrity love is everlasting. Husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, flings and lovers may come and go, but fans' love for favorite celebrities is everlasting. Conscious uncoupling ain't got nothing on us.

So, in the spirit of timeless pop culture favoritism, we have a roundup of the fall and winter's greatest celebrity books, many memoirs and some casual musings on how to live the good life. Billy Idol, Timbaland, Jewel and Elvis Costello show us inside their musical worlds. Patti Smith returns to the written word with M TRAIN, the second book following her New York Times bestseller JUST KIDS, which gave everyone a dose of the too-cool-for-school Patti we've now come to admire and idolize. The blush-inducing Michael Strahan of "Live! with Kelly and Michael," Shonda Rhimes (creator and executive producer of "Grey's Anatomy"), Whoopi Goldberg of all of the amazing Whoopi Goldberg movies...and "The View," and Lea Michele, star of "Glee" and "Scream Queens" give us tips on life, love and the pursuit of happiness. Fashion icons Grace Jones and Donna Karan walk us through their incredible accomplishments with a big dose of heart and an even bigger dose of panache. G. Steinem makes a return with MY LIFE ON THE ROAD, and we have two Reynolds stars in the mix. Lastly, we must not forget beloved Mindy Kaling, who's giving Tina Fey's BOSSYPANTS a run for its money.

Point is: There's always a way to get closer to those celebrities we love most dearly, and we have 20 ways to do it below.
