In Pieces | Sally Field
post image
Pickpick

When I think of an actress, I think of a woman like Sally. Fractured, In Pieces, & made whole by the craft. She was able to summon a strength as a character that she never seemed to have as a young woman.

But Sally, I wished you had let us see you grow. The book jumps from her successes as Norma Rae quickly, without stopping, through her late 30s, 40s, and 50s to arrive at the end of her mother‘s life in Sally‘s 60s. That was unsatisfying. 3.5⭐️

BarbaraBB Great review again 3d

Cinfhen You‘re on a roll and your reviews are ON POINT 🙌🏻 you can post now but we aren‘t “recording” progress until the final 2 weeks of each quarter, so you‘ll have to post again🙄sorry....we‘re getting lazier in our old age 😜Plus by the end of March, you might have another dozen prompts completed 🥳🥳🥳 3d
Cinfhen I loved this memoir but agree, she was more about sharing her past then highlighting her present ( but I was ok with that) I thought she was more like-able than Kate Mulgrew 3d
Megabooks @Cinfhen Thank you!! 😘😘 I just love the challenge of getting all my feelings conveyed in 451 characters! I‘ll just post at the end of the quarter. Hopefully I won‘t forget. 🤭 I hope you have a great weekend! Any big plans?? 💃🏻 3d
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ll forever be loyal to Kate! 🖖🏻🖖🏻 I would‘ve listened to a few more hours to hear about Sally‘s 1980s and 1990s!! Steel Magnolias, Mrs. Doubtfire, Not without My Daughter...how can you skip that?!? (edited) 3d
Cinfhen We‘ll send a reminder 😛 nope, my son has 4 friends staying over this weekend/ friends from his Philly days and we have an engagement party on Sat night. Quiet. How are you coming along?? Still not sleeping well, I see 😔 3d
Megabooks @Cinfhen That sounds nice! 👍🏻👍🏻 I slept all day. I‘ve had a pre-menopausal migraine that I inherited from my mother. She had them until her hysterectomy at 52. Usually sleeping/dark/ice packs help, which is why I‘ve been listening to audiobooks, but it has gotten worse. Smh. Idk what to do!! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ 3d
Cinfhen You really can‘t catch a break 😭 3d
Megabooks @Cinfhen unfortunately it seems not. 😩 3d
BarbaraBB @Megabooks I‘m fine. Looking forward to the weekend, just a few hours away. I am reading way too little at the moment! How are you? 💕 (edited) 3d
BarbaraBB Oh I just read about your migraine. That sounds horrible. 3d
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I hope you‘re able to get some reading done this weekend! 🤞🏻📚 The migraine went away for a few hours, but now it seems to be returning, but maybe not. Super 🤞🏻🤞🏻 that it‘s stays away! 3d
BarbaraBB 💚🍀 3d
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I‘m fine! So far, it‘s stayed away! 3d
4thhouseontheleft We‘ll send out reminders when the giveaway period is open! I hope the migraines stay away for a while for you. 💜 2d
Megabooks @4thhouseontheleft Great! And thank you. 😊💜 I‘m going to see an endocrinologist soon and hopefully I can get them straightened out or at least make a plan. 2d

1) eclectic, constant, and lifelong
2) Either my bed or couch and ANY time
3) Best is tagged (with an honorable mention to Know My Name). Worst is a small press / self pub book: Material Value
4) a couple recent followers - hello! @KatieDid927 @typhlax @rsteve388

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
This was a wonderful book and hearing Sally tell her story in her own voice made it even more touching and heartfelt. Could use this for the #booked2020 #setinhollywood prompt, but I‘ve already filled that. Thinking about using it for #parentchildmemoir but there‘s another I want to use for it. What to do?!
ETA: Decided to use this for #bookclubworthy
3/36

Cinfhen Yay!!! Well done!! You can always switch your prompts around xx I really loved this audio/ I was so surprised by how honest & vulnerable she was. 4d

I love seeing young Sally on the cover, but I also wanted to share the back cover. Ms. Field is a wise woman, whose effort to learn to act in her 20s led her to Oscars and Emmys. Now she‘s written a book about her life, balancing poignant family stories with Hollywood truths. She‘s put the same effort into writing that she did into acting. 5 big stars!

Cinfhen Great review, Barb! I have so much respect for Sally Fields as both actress and a female. This book was painfully honest & sincere. 7d
4thhouseontheleft So many Littens recommending this right now! Next time I am in the mood for a celebrity memoir I will look at picking it up! (edited) 7d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Thanks. I feel the same! 6d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft Yes, I noticed I‘m not alone. And I do recommend the audio too. 6d

#setinhollywood #booked2020 #winter
This is a great choice for #SetinHollywood for #Booked2020. I have always liked Sally Field, although I wish the book had continued on into her more recent life. She‘s had a fascinating life, and she‘s quite honest about the tragedies and successes that have been part of it. The parts where she talks about acting are incredible- makes you appreciate how talented she is.

4thhouseontheleft She is incredibly talented! 🙌 🎉 1w

I loved listening to Sally tell her story! What a story it is too! I really had no idea about her life but I loved all the things she was in, even the stuff she hated being in

BarbaraTheBibliophage I just finished this today. I want to have a Sally Field marathon now, especially Norma and Lincoln! 1w
mcctrish @BarbaraTheBibliophage me too!!!! I am curious if Smokey and the Bandit will stand the test of time 🤣 1w
BarbaraTheBibliophage @mcctrish I could probably only make it through about 15 minutes of that! 🤪 1w
mcctrish 🤣😂 @BarbaraTheBibliophage I remember thinking it was awesome but now that I know what a cad he was maybe not so much 1w
