    1. Wow. I can't believe I wasted so much time on this one book. I didn't seek it out, but I found it on the shelves next to the books about fashion (which I DID seek out) and picked it up because it looked mildly interesting. Then I made the bad choice of taking it as my sole source of entertainment on a weekend trip and became so invested that I had to finish it, just to see if it got better by the end. (It didn't.) This is by Mia Tyler, the daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and one of his [...]

    2. I wonder how many people write memoirs before they turn 30 years old? Not many, but since the author lived more as a child than most do in an entire lifetime, there is plenty of grist here. It is a mixed bag of the usual coming-of-age happenings and mishaps, parent-child conflict, parties,drugs and sex, but for Aerosmith fans there is also plenty about her dad, Steven Tyler. Turns out the man with such a wild reputation is a pretty nice guy if not the best father. For her age, Tyler has some pre [...]

    3. I saw this one in the library a couple of weeks ago when I was checking the online catalogturned my head and there it was. As most people know, I am an Aerosmith nut. And, I have to admit that I have been in sort of a depression about the news of Steven Tyler checking into rehab again and the rest of the band interviewing potential new lead singers (Billy Idol?!?! You HAVE to be kidding!!!) At any rate, I thought that this would be an interesting read. It was, in fact, a seriously guilty read. t [...]

    4. Imagine growing up with these parents: Steven Tyler from Aerosmith and Cyrinda Foxe, a popular actress and model from the 1970s. At first glance, it might seem luxurious, glamorous, exciting, and fun to be part of this family, but Mia Tyler tells the real story of her experiences with her rock 'n roll mom and dad in Creating Myself.From the first lines of the book, which reveal Tyler's intention to commit suicide in 2001, readers will find riveting details, shocking stories, and jaw-dropping sec [...]

    5. I've liked Mia Tyler since I knew who she was (by this I mean a plus-size model, not Steven Tyler's daughter) - unfortunately, I had no idea who she was while she was a model; I found out when I passed by Celebrity Fit Club on VH1 once or twice. I loved how she had attitude - that she may not have lost pounds, but she fit her clothes better, and she felt better. This was an engrossing read - it was hard to put down - and I'm glad I read it. I'll never claim to understand self-mutilators, even to [...]

    6. Try as I might, I couldn't get more than halfway though this book. It certainly wasn't terrible, but there are so many other celeb-kid autobiographies out there - that DON't make you want to punch the writer. Mia's writing style is okay, but you just can't really feel that sorry for her. She's whiny, priveliged and knows it, but doesn't have enough charm to wink at the reader and say 'hey, I really haven't had it *that* bad, have I?' I much prefer Fierceby Kelly Osbourne, who seemed to get her s [...]

    7. This was an absolutely beautiful book. She was honest, she let down all of her walls and we saw her for who she truly is: a survivor. She didn't sugarcoat anything. I've read this book at least twice if not three times for when I need a bit of uplifting and when I'm feeling insecure. It's a lovely well-written book recollecting Mia's journey to loving herself despite what the critiques say. I loved this book and recommend to everyone willing to read it!

    8. Ok, I'm not into the celebrity autobiographies or any of the sort AT ALL but I absolutely loved this book. I found that she was extremely down to earth and honest all or most of the time. Who in Hollywood or any fame at all can say that? I loved her willingness to put it all out there and try to help others and inspire. I'll just end it with, I really enjoyed it.

    9. ReviewMia wrote a book that helps people to look at their own lives and actions. She showed a lot of courage in writing this book. Mia shared a lot of her issues in her life, and her growth from her life's issues. I'm sure Mia you're family is proud of your accomplishments.

    10. You can tell that Mia really wants her story to be important and interesting, but mostly it isn't.

    11. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a Warhol muse/Rock n' Roll groupie/former actress for a mom? Me either, but now that I have read Mia Tyler's memoir about growing up with her mother, Cyrinda Foxe, I know at least one version of this story. Mia Tyler's dad, of course, is Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Before bedding and wedding Steven Tyler, Cyrinda was with David Bowie, and later, married New York Doll David Johansen. After divorcing Johansen, she married Tyler in the late [...]

    12. Mia was on her own pretty much since puberty. Her (in)famous parents, Steven Tyler and Cyrinda Foxe were never there for her when she needed them the most. Her mother WAS there physically for most of her early years but she was never REALLY present since she was extremely self-absorbed and constantly bemoaning her lot in life. Mia's dad, Steven Tyler wasn't a bad dad, he just wasn't there for her as much as she would have liked and she accepted this, knowing who he was but she could never get ov [...]

    13. I have owned Creating Myself for about 3 years now and I've tried reading it but never really could get into it until now. I am very happy that I started reading this book again and actually stuck with it because this book was freaking awesome! When the book first opens up Mia gives you a visual of when she almost committed suicide and she hooks you from there. After the first chapter she goes back to when she was younger and goes through points in her life that pretty much brought her to this p [...]

    14. Mia Tyler's actual life if you take away the rockstar father and 70s Warhol girl mother is not exactly bluebirds and a picket fence. In some parts of her childhood I feel some sort of sympathy for her, but instead of trying to work on any major issues (then again no one was there to show her right from wrong), she grows increasingly apathetic and vicious towards her mother not only in her youth but in recalling her youth. Sometimes I feel charmed and admire her for things she points out and don' [...]

    15. I thought Mia was beautiful and inspiring when I saw her as the first plus-sized model in Seventeen. I loved that her style was more rock, rougher around the edges than typical models would allow you to see. Reading various books about Aerosmith and those who surrounded them, I was eager to hear about her hectic childhood from Mia herself. The book is very open and honest, but I kind of feel like her childhood was glossed over. She shares all sorts of details about her relationships with her par [...]

    16. I picked up the book because I've been a fan of her beauty and her career as a plus-size model, and was curious about her background with a famous father and half-sister. It's a bit amateurishly written and in a lot of her teenage years her attitude, problems, and choices make you sort of want to slap her, but overall the book reads as an honest conversation with the author. I found things to identify with and admire in Mia, and it was an enjoyable, interesting read. I suspect that it works well [...]

    17. I stumbled upon this book in the library while looking for another biography and decided I'd read it, even though I never knew too much about Mia Tyler, other than she was a plus-sized model and Steven Tyler's daughter. I really enjoyed reading her story, although at times it felt very repetative and as if she was rambling. It's really interesting to read about a celebrity's life through their eyes instead of the tabloids. She seemed to have a very difficult childhood and her family never had an [...]

    18. It was interesting to read about her life. She's made some crazy choices but they have made her stronger. As an outsider looking in I could have told her that her marriage would never work and even the final relationship in the book. At the end of the book she is engaged but the paperback edition of this will probably contain a new epilogue because she is no longer in that relationship. They broke up right before the book came out. One thing both relationships had in common was the guy was alrea [...]

    19. 3.5 stars.I didn't know who she was before I read this, but didnt really need to as the book read okay without that. This is an open and candid account of Mia's early life, and does have some interesting insights into her life. Sometimes I laughed, and other times I cried usually I would call this a success, but this is at times self-indulgent and other times preachy, and I think a bit more editing could have reigned that in a bit without losing her voice. Stll, she did reach me, as I feel the u [...]

    20. I felt that at times in this book, Tyler was on a delicate line of "poor me" and "this is why I did drugs and partied, so there". Her career as a "plus size" model (to the industry they are, to us who are truly larger than life, not so much)was barely touched on. She did not talk about body image issues except to report vaguely about being sent to fat camp. She is a positive roll model for younger girls as she is larger than the average model, and is reaching our to those who seek advice and is [...]

    21. Creating Myself: How I Learned That Beauty Comes in All Shapes, Sizes, and Packages, Including Me- By Mia Tyler. This is an amazing book that takes you on a journey of self discovery, real hurt and real people living life. This isn't a "tell all book" about her dad or life as a rock stars daughter, it is about how we as humans make mistakes, learn from them and if we are lucky enough we grow from them. Mia is a great story teller and a great role model. You can feel her pain and her triumphs. Gr [...]

    22. I am not really into Biographies but this one was not that bad. It was interesting and not boring like other bios.The reason i gave it a 3 star is because im not a big fan of bios but like i said this one was pretty good. It was cool to see the life of a young women (daughter of Steven Tyler). My parents are a fan of him so i thought why not try reading about his daughter and learn a little more behind The Tyler's.

    23. The subtitle of this book is misleading. It's really about Mia not getting along with her mom, doing a lot of drugs, cutting, getting divorced, and eventually finding happiness with another fiance and a MySpace page. Ultimately I didn't take much away from it, but the gossipy stuff made it a pretty quick read.

    24. This is a book about Mia, Steven Tyler's daughter. It was interesting to hear a daughter of a rock singer's perspective as to what it was like.It seems that it would be great to be a daughter of a rock singer, however there are a lot of pressures that go along with that. Mia was just trying to find her way, and she wrote a book about it.

    25. Your standard "celebrity" autobiography. Some of the more interesting aspects of her life she alludes to but doesn't choose to go into here. I think there is a better book in the material, but it isn't realized here.

    26. Mia Tyler does not put on any sort of act in this book. Her writing isn't amazing-- it really is just her telling us about her life, her memories, and her emotions. It's extremely relatable and interesting.

    27. A well-written account of life as someone who may or may not be perfect and the discovery that loving yourself for who you are, regardless, is what really counts. An honest look at imperfections and insecurities. A definite read for anyone battling personal physical insecurities.

    28. A well-written account of life as someone who may or may not be perfect and the discovery that loving yourself for who you are, regardless, is what really counts. An honest look at imperfections and insecurities. A definite read for anyone battling personal physical insecurities.

    29. This book was good, but not as good as I thought it was going to be. I have gone through some of the same things Mia has, but the book truly wasn't that interesting or helpful. Also, it is sometimes hard to keep track of who's who in this book. It was a decent read.
