All 9 ‘Teen Mom’ Books Ranked From Worst To Best
MTV’s Teen Mom franchise has become more successful than anyone involved could have ever imagined. After almost 10 years, fans have come to know the stars from both Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 and have watched them go through some of life’s highest highs and lowest lows, but in that time many of the stars have wanted to give fans a more apt understanding of their lives outside of the clips put together for an episode. By now, almost all of the Teen Mom stars have written their own books, providing details about their life before the show and throughout that audiences had no idea about! If you have read all of the Teen Mom stars’ books or haven’t had the chance to check them all out yet, here are our ranking of all the books from worst to best:
9. Kailyn Lowry – Hustle and Heart (2016)
“Hustle and Heart” was Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry’s second published book in two years and a lot had changed in her life in that short period of time. While her first book was a memoir, “Hustle and Heart” is a book of advice that Kailyn pieced together from her own experiences that she wanted to share with fans. Of course, the main criticism the book faces is “Who is Kailyn Lowry to be giving advice?” which she addresses immediately in the introduction. Regardless, the book is somewhat hypocritical as Kailyn states that people often give advice without realizing it never applies the same way to the same person, so while her tidbits of wisdom are interesting, there is no saying that they would actually be helpful. Longtime fans of the series might also read the book as the reality star’s defense of her attitude as she is often criticized for being “rude” and “ungrateful,” and spends quite a bit of a time trying to explain her attitude.
8. Matt Baier – You Have No F**King Idea (2017)
Matt Baier is the only Teen Mom significant other to publish his very own book after receiving endless criticisms during his relationship with Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood. Since the pair first hooked up, barely any fans or viewers supported the relationship and it seemed each new day brought a new scandal that Baier was allegedly involved in. With his book “You Have No F**king Idea: The Naked Truth About My Life” which was published in 2017, Baier directly tackled some of the biggest accusations against him such as how many children he really has, and the person behind some of the most scandalous stories about him that were sold to the tabloids. While it was interesting to get Baier’s side to the story, the book was disappointing because he glazed over or ignored some of the worst stories about him, such as his behavior towards Jenelle Evans, Farrah Abraham and Kailyn Lowry on Twitter before meeting Amber on the social media platform. Also, since Amber and Matt split shortly after the book was published, it is easy to see now some of the areas where he was lying which calls into question whether he was telling the truth or just the “truth” he wanted out there which only makes him seem more sketchy than ever.
