A Selection of Elizabeth Taylor Books

The editor of Vanity Fair is quoted as saying, "Try to imagine a star who combines the talent of a Meryl Streep with the beauty of a Nicole Kidman, the sensuality of a Penlope Cruz, and the notoriety of a Lindsay Lohan. Magnify that a hundredfold, and you're still only halfway to Elizabeth Taylor." He's absolutely right, of course, and it is no wonder we want to read and learn more about the life and times of Elizabeth Taylor.

Since almost the beginning of Elizabeth Taylor's career, there have been a number of Elizabeth Taylor books available for those who are curious and want to learn more about her life and her career as one of the most beautiful and popular actors in the world.

With the passing of this legendary actress in 2011, publishers raced to release a NEW selection of books and magazines covering Liz Taylor's entire life. Some publishers chose simply to update books that had already been published by adding information about the final years of Liz Taylor's life. A cheat of sorts but at least it makes books that fall in that category 'complete.'

On this page, you will find a selection of these books, biographical and otherwise, about the beautiful and talented Elizabeth Taylor as well as a few of the best older books. If you are interested in reading more, I know you will find a few great choices on this page.

      I haven't read any of the books. National Velvet is my favorite Elizabeth Taylor movie. I like the innocence of it, before her life became so complicated.

      I'm fascinated with Elizabeth Taylor, too. I'm sure a good biography would be a really interesting read with a lot of "I didn't know that!" reactions throughout.
