Seven books you won’t believe are nonfiction

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Scott Greenstone tagged seven books you won’t believe are nonfiction, including:
Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, by Jillian Lauren.

It might seem stupid to listen to somebody who promises you $20,000 for “spicing up” parties in Singapore, but New Yorker Jillian Lauren was desperate. She realized her mistake only when she arrived in Borneo and found herself press-ganged into the harem of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, a brother of the Sultan of Brunei. She wrote this book about the nearly three years she spent amidst the decadence of the prince’s harem.
Read about the other books on the list.
