Quiz: Which Celeb Memoir Speaks Directly To Your Soul?

Not that we’re complaining, but the market is currently saturated with memoirs (for lack of a more catch-all term) from our favorite smart, witty, and wise women. You break through in Hollywood because you’re a good writer with a strong voice, and bam — you’re basically required to write a book about how you got there.
