Scrappy Little Nobody | Anna Kendrick
post image
Mehso-so

3.5 🌟🌟🌟

Enjoyable and funny, especially the book club notes at the book‘s end, but nothing extraordinary. It took be a bit to adjust to Kendrick (and her voice) as the narrator, and the book isn‘t clearly or well-organized as a memoir/autobiography, but she comes across as sincere and “real,” as she offers readers a self-deprecating glimpse into her life and rise in Hollywood.

I loved Clinton Kelly on What Not to Wear. That was one of my favorite shows. This book has a very conversational tone. It is a series of essays. Some are about What Not to Wear, but many are about his rise in show business. I found his life to be fascinating.

LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was never really a big fan of Anna. I liked her movies, but I didn't know what to think of her. I'd heard this was a funny bio so I thought I'd give it a shot. I didn't regret it at all. It was so funny and a great perspective on a starting movie/broadway career.

Started this today for all of the campus to campus driving this week. It certainly makes the drive between pre-semester meetings a little more enjoyable. 🎧🗣📖 #Audible

In Pieces | Sally Field
post image
Pickpick

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. 5d
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) 5d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cinfhen Thanks. I feel the same! 4d
BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft Yes, I noticed I‘m not alone. And I do recommend the audio too. 4d

Just a joyful delight to read. I celebrated every high & low with this charming talented man with a big voice & even bigger heart. I shed a few tears along the way for all of his generosity and good deeds. Loved this one and I‘m glad I had the physical copy as the enclosed personal photos are really special 💖

#BookReport

I finished 5 📚 this past week, but kept to 2 genres: non-fiction and graphic novels. When I have a heavy NF reading month, I always like to balance it out with lighter reads that I can get through in one sitting!

All of these were on my weekly forecast except the 2nd Enchanted book!

Cinfhen Great week!! How‘s that cold??? 6d

I love Anna Kendrick, and her memoir is a fun, sometimes serious, romp inside her brain.

Bookzombie Just curious, but could this count for set in Hollywood? I already have another planned for that category, but was curious. 1w

Cravings: Hungry for More | Chrissy Teigen

Every recipe in this cookbook has been suburb thus far. This recipe is one of my favorites—super easy, no issues with bones, and I use organic tri-color carrots for extra color. My BF & I are cooking tomorrow‘s dinner while watching Football ((Fly, Eagles, Fly 🏈))

Stacypatrice Looks so good!! 2w
MoonWitch94 @Stacypatrice @rather_be_reading We plan to add the dumplings 🥟 tomorrow before we eat it. I hope it is just as good. 2w
