A MILLION MEANINGS IN A SINGLE NAME…

These are roles Paris Hilton embraces now as a fully realized woman.
I know most of the world had an image of Paris Hilton in their head prior to this book release and maybe prior to her docu-series. Now that I have read this, I am shocked and impressed with the woman Hilton is even after everything she has gone through.
I listened to the audiobook of this book, which I really enjoy doing when the author voices it themselves. I feel like you get more personal and this was definitely the case with this memoir. The book was so deep and insightful into her life. I am guilty of thinking she was just a rich, spoiled girl whose parents paid for everything, but I learned a lot. I think the purpose of this book was to voice all the misconceptions people had about her and she definitely did that. It takes a strong person to admit to some of the things in this book, and Hilton delivered without an apology or wince. She is truly 100% herself and I am here for it.
I think everyone should read this if you’ve ever even had a though about who Paris Hilton is. This is the most real I’ve seen a celebrity and loved reading her story and hearing the ways she overcame everything. Paris: A Memoir will teach you to make assumptions about those you don’t know or have no knowledge of what makes them tick. I won’t make the same mistake twice. Pick it up and read for yourself.
