The one topic that Snooki has been tweeting up a storm about this week -- aside from her burgeoning baby bump, of course -- is her new novel, "Gorilla Beach." Just yesterday, Snooks donned a pair of speckled fuchsia "nerdz glasses" and snapped a photo of herself clutching the follow-up to her 2011 roman à clef, "A Shore Thing."
My 3rd book GORILLA BEACH is in stores now! Also peep my nerdz glasses! Apart of my summer sunglasses line out soon. XO twitter.com/snooki/status/…

It's no surprise that Snooki is boastful of the new book, which features a Ponzi schemer named Ponzi and such sparkling bon mots as "Knowing Maria, who gargled with tequila and had been known to grind a lamppost when drunk, the bachelorette party would rock no matter who hosted it."
The "Jersey Shore" starlet is only the latest in a long line of celebrities who've tried their hand at fiction, whether a thinly veiled novel, collection of short stories or children's book. Take a look through our gallery to see other boldface types proudly posing with their literary works.
