She’s not just a tan face; soon, she’ll be a bonafide author too. That’s right: Jersey Shore star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi is penning a novel to be published by none other than publishing giant Simon & Schuster.
The publisher confirmed the news Wednesday and released a statement about the forthcoming book. According to the statement, the novel, which is tentatively titled A Shore Thing will “revolve around a girl looking for love on the boardwalk (one full of big hair, dark tans, and fights galore).”
And it seems Snooki herself is rather excited about her new venture. “I’m pumped to announce to my fans a project that I’ve been working on for some time,” the 22-year-old said. “This book will have you falling in love at the shore.”
The news is somewhat shocking, not just because of the outrageous show she stars in, but because earlier this year, Snooki Tweeted that she was reading her first book…ever. “I have mind blowing news! I am officially reading my first bo!” she wrote. “Lmao! Nicholas Sparks “dear John!”…I’m proud of myself.”
Aside from her apparent inexperience with literature, would you want your kids reading Snooki’s book? If it’s anything like Jersey Shore, we’re guessing it might not be the best example for young ones.
