Going Clear by Lawrence Wright - the formation of Scientology in America and the crazy-ass personal history of L. Ron Hubbard (I was surprised how much I loved learning about this world)
I Want My MTV by Rob Tannenbaum and Craig Marks - Oral history/ridiculous stories of MTV’s creation, guerrilla marketing tactics to gain a place in cable, and insane stories from musicians, artists, and influencers (suggested by statelyxanadu) (Liked ALOT)
The Treatment by Suzanne Young - The second book in the YA story of the teenagers who live in a world where 1 in 3 teens commit suicide and the government’s attempt to fix the problem by wiping kids memories and leaving them as vacant blobs (Suggested by shutupkristen) (Enjoyed well enough for a Sunday afternoon)
Live from New York by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller - Oral history of the beginning of SNL through the early 2000’s with heartfelt, hilarious, and tragic stories from actors, writers, producers, and execs. (LOVED)
Got any good book suggestions?
