uncharted terriTORI
By: Tori Spelling
207 Pages

More discussion of things going on in Tori Spelling's life. Among her topics: relationship with her Mother, her former 90210 co-stars, her marriage.

I went into reading this book with mixed expectations. I loved her first book, Stori Telling. I was not a fan of her second, Mommywood. So, I didn't know what to think of this one. My instincts didn't let me down. Her first book remains my favorite and this one runs the same lines of her second.

I watch her reality show and it turns out that's good when reading this book. Topics that were on her show were also in her book, but I felt that you only got all the information if you watched her show AND read the book. For example, her marital woes. On the show they have been front and enter all season long. In the book they are downplayed a lot. The whole two sides to every story theory kept running through my head. If you watched the show and read the book, you got both sides of the story.

In this book she is more insightful into her own faults. She fully admits to being a workaholic and struggling with it. She has the same compulsive desire to make everyone happy and apologize for everything that I do. She comes across more relatable in this one.

Overall I didn't love the book. It was an OK read but, for the most part, forgettable. I've always felt that if you're going to do a memoir or an autobiography really do one. Don't breeze over topics with a mention of what they are and no more. I felt she did that in here. Especially with her discovery of her former co-stars of 90210 disliking her. I don't understand why she included it in here other than to say they don't. There was no resolution or any pursuit of it in any way. She told you the situation and left it there.

Rating: Borrow From the Library

I'm sorry you could not enjoy the book. It's so bad when you get something crappy to read. Still, I really like your review. I myself basically never read books written by celebrities about their lives, but I like to read reviews about such books.;)

I still want to read her first book, but now I know to skip this one. Thanks Jen!
