Reading Celebrity Autofiction


This collection encompasses two data sets of Goodreads reviews: 12 reviews of Re-Run the Fun: My Life as Pat Sharp (Sharp, Richman, and Catterson 2020) and 582 reviews of Memoirs and Misinformation (Carrey and Vachon 2020). The data represents all Goodreads reviews from each novel's 2020 publication date up until the end of January 2021. Reviewer user names have been deleted to anonymise the data. Instead an identifier in the form of an acronym based on the book’s title and a number is used (e.g. RtF1-12; M&M1-582).
