Dirty Rocker Boys by Bobbie Brown with Caroline Ryder
Cherry on Top by Bobbie Brown with Caroline Ryder
Slash: The Autobiography by Slash and Anthony Booze
Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Steven Adler: My Appetite for Destruction by Steven Adler with Lawrence J. Spignola
