Snookie To Publish Her Second Novel Next Year

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi will be writing a second book. CNN reports that Simon & Schuster plans to release Gorilla Beach on May 15, 2012.

Here’s more about the book: “Giovanna ‘Gia’ Spumanti and her cousin Isabella ‘Bella’ Rizzoli are going to have the sexiest summer ever. While they couldn’t be more different—pint-size Gia is a carefree, outspoken party girl and Bella is a tall, slender athlete who always holds her tongue—for the next month they’re ready to pouf up their hair, put on their stilettos, and soak up all that Seaside Heights, New Jersey, has to offer: hot guidos, cool clubs, fried Oreos, and lots of tequila.’”

In her author video, Polizzi (pictured, via) did say that she wanted to write more books in the future. When her first novel, A Shore Thing, was first released in January, one publishing executive told The Hollywood Reporter: “The book didn’t do as well as it could have because rather than a tell-all, it was disguised as a novel.” (Via Sarah Weinman)
