Hello and welcome to my latest JR Book Review of Melissa Explains It All. I read this book a while ago now and I thought I would do a review of it as I am considering reading / listening to it again! It would make a great holiday read as well! I am 30 and I grew up with Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Clarissa Explains it All. It was my dream to be like her so I thought I would give this book by Melissa Joan Hart a try!

Melissa Explains It All is her telling you about her life. Great on audible (see below) as she actually reads it! The blurb about this reads:
From her first commercial to her current starring role in ABC Family’s hit Melissa and Joey, Hart never let fame go to her head. She always had one foot in Hollywood and one foot in reality-and still does. Melissa makes us laugh along with her as she talks about:
–guest appearances in shows like Saturday Night Live and The Equalizer
–auditioning for Punky Brewster and Clarissa
–her early Broadway days
–wacky parties she’s thrown and attended
— the actors who influenced her and whom she befriended, worked with and competed against
–her experiences both on and off-set-with Sabrina’s Salem the Cat and Elvis the Alligator on Clarissa
–how she met the love of her life at the Kentucky Derby
Melissa Joan Hart explains all that she’s learned along the way-what’s kept her grounded, normal and working when others have not been so fortunate-and that she’s the approachable, hilarious girl-next-door her fans have always thought she’d be.
Why I liked it
I really loved this book- as I said, I grew up with her and I really wanted to know more about her life growing up and about her life now- married with children. I found her very normal and very down to earth and it was a really interesting true story of her life.
I love books, as a child I devoured them, now I am older and I spend most of my time at work, I don’t have time to read as much as I would like, which is why I love Audible, I listen to books in the car, on my commute etc and they’re great. Most of the books I review on my blog I have actually listened to rather than read, click here if you want to have a free trial of audible and get a free audio book.
Highly recommend this one! Especially if you are of a similar age and grew up with Sabrina The Teenage Witch!
