Don't Sleep with Your Drummer
374 pages; MTV Books
Malin Akerman, also a singer in the band the Petalstones, was given this rock 'n' roll memoir by a friend, who knew that the drummer was the only other single person in the group. Akerman loved the book, but not so much that she followed the author's advice. "Our stories don't have the same endings," she says. "The author got her heart broken, but my drummer and I have been married for four years!"
