With warm days on the horizon, Real Style is looking forward to some time to catch up on summer reading in the sun. Sometimes, summer asks us to drop the serious literature and embrace a trashy paperback or two. After all, everyone needs the occasional chick lit, romance novel, or celebrity autobiography on a day off. To keep up the spirit, here’s our list of some beach-ready books written by celebrities to help you pass the time:

1) LA Candy series by Lauren Conrad: The 27-year-old star of Laguna Beach and The Hills added “celebrity author” to her resume when the LA Candy books were written. Published by HarperTeen, the series focuses on 19-year-old reality TV star Jane Roberts, who attempts to adjust to life in front of the cameras as a Hollywood newbie.
2) Priceless by Nicole Richie: Some things in life are worth more than fame and wealth- which is an important lesson protagonist Charlotte Williams learns the hard way in this fiction novel by actress Nicole Richie (no stranger to fame nor wealth herself). When the young and glamorous Charlotte loses everything and relocates to New Orleans to start fresh, she makes new friends and starts appreciating life for what it’s worth.
3) Dollhouse by the Kardashians: Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe’s 2011 fiction novel focuses on the lives of three famous sisters whose names all start with ‘K’. Does this sound familiar? With plenty of family drama, scandal, and a wealthy, extravagant lifestyle, the plot is partly based off of the lives of the Kardashians.
4) A Shore Thing by Snooki: Everyone’s favourite Guidette penned a novel (with the help of a ghostwriter) which describes the wild summertime adventures of two sisters, tanned Italian girls Gia and Bella. Will they end up finding love? It sounds like a summer to remember (or maybe the opposite, given how party-heavy their weekends are) on the Jersey Shore.
