Where Fiction and Reality Meet

Listed: Rockstars!

Before I get started with this week’s Listed, a little request/announcement/whatever: I’m looking for people who are interested in doing a guest post for Listed. If you’ve got a topic that you want to share, give me a shout.

This week I thought it would be fun to take a look at books with characters that are rock stars. Because rock stars can sometimes be a lot of fun to read about – especially when they have all kinds of drama involved. So, here we have a bunch of books with rock stars!
