My Girls: A Lifetime with Carrie and Debbie | Todd Fisher
8 posts | 8 read | 6 to read
A revelatory and touching tribute to the lives of Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds written by the person who knew them best, Todd Fishers poignant memoir is filled with moving stories of growing up among Hollywood royalty and illustrated with never-before-seen photos and memorabilia. In December 2016, the world was shaken by the sudden deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds, two unspeakable losses that occurred in less than twenty-four hours. The stunned public turned for solace to Debbies only remaining child, Todd Fisher, who somehow retained his grace and composure under the glare of the media spotlight as he struggled with his own overwhelming grief. The son of "Americas Sweethearts" Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, Todd grew up amid the glamorous wealth and pretense of Hollywood. Thanks to his funny, loving, no-nonsense mother, Todd remained down to earth, his own man, but always close to his cherished mom, and to his sister through her meteoric rise to stardom and her struggle with demons that never diminished her humor, talent, or spirit. Now, Todd shares his heart and his memories of Debbie and Carrie with deeply personal stories from his earliest years to those last unfathomable days. His book, part memoir, part homage, celebrates their legacies through a more intimate, poignant, and often hilarious portrait of these two remarkable women than has ever been revealed before. With thirty-two pages of never-before-seen photos and memorabilia from his familys private archives, Todds book is a love letter to a sister and a mother, and a gift to countless fans who are mourning the deaths of these two unforgettable stars.

I really enjoyed this! To me, the fact that it easily could have been titled ‘Me & My Girls‘ & wasn‘t, only proves the love and devotion that Todd continuously showed towards & in regardsr to HIS Girls even after their deaths. My🎩 goes off to you Sir.

This is my January #BookSpin (#8 ebook😉)

Couldn‘t focus enough on much today so I stuck to tiny spurts of open books.

🎄: 1

Trying to finish as many non-chunkster (& maybe a few shorter books) as I can before🎊

I‘m still 20 away from my GR/SG goals😬😢😫

Andrew65 Good luck. 3y
CoverToCoverGirl There‘s time yet, especially if you finish the ones you have that are already in progress. There‘s always your favourite children‘s books too. Think of them as short stories.😁🤪 They count too! 💚🙂 (edited) 3y
DieAReader @CoverToCoverGirl ♥️ No kids books here. All at mom‘s in storage for donation to a friend for her little ones😉 Hoping a few audiobooks might help though😏 3y

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand I loved hearing about Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds from Todd their brother/son. But on the hand it was mostly Todd's autobiography & I thought it was going to be more about them. It was a really interesting look at their family.

Finished the tagged book today and bawled my eyes out in the last chapter. Now I‘m watching my husband watch this movie for the first time (he‘s entranced!).

Just started this book and I already don‘t want it to end. For all their faults the Fishers were magic. #FisherMagic

This took me a long time to get through because I knew the ending. It was heartbreaking to learn of all the struggles they endured. I appreciate the details on what ultimately lead to Carrie‘s death.

Just placed my #Libby hold on this. My library got it in today. (I think all my holds will come in when I have to go back to work. 😫)
