She may be better known for her hairstyle than her literary style – but that hasn't stopped Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from trying her hand at writing.

The reality star is expected to release her first book, tentatively titled A Shore Thing, in January, publisher Simon & Schuster announced Wednesday.

And she'll likely be coming at it with a fresh perspective.

In February, the MTV star Tweeted – jokingly? – that she was reading her first book. "I have mind blowing news! I am officially reading my first bo! Lmao! Nicholas Sparks "dear John!" ... I'm proud of myself," she wrote at the time.

Like other reality stars turned authors, including Nicole Richie and Lauren Conrad, who penned bestselling fictionalized accounts of their own lives, Snooki's book will tell the story of a girl looking for romance on the boardwalk.

"I'm pumped to announce to my fans a project that I've been working on for some time," Polizzi, 22, said in a statement. "This book will have you falling in love at the shore."
