The bit of investigative journalism that launched Nellie Bly's career. She very easily, too easily, was institutionalized. This was further supported by the number of sane women stuck there. The conditions were horrible. Bly's expose brought these conditions to light and helped start reform.

A memoir if the first 30 or so years of her life. I loved The Parent Trap as a kid, but I've only seen Pollyanna once nd want to check out her other movies. I enjoyed her stories of behind the scenes and with other well known actors. I hated the financial debacle she had and that she had self esteem issues. Overall a good read for any fan of hers.

I loved this book. All I knew about Dave Grohl was that he was a member of the Foo Fighters. I never knew he was the drummer of Nirvana. He's a family man, once flying from Australia immediately after a show to take a daughter to a father daughter dance, spent a few hours, then flew back to Australia for another show. He ha amazing stories and seems to be an incredibly nice, humble guy. #nonfiction2022 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

She is amazing. Her courage is astounding and I loved her story. There really isn't anything else to say.

The second book of comedian/ actress Laura Clery in which she discusses the turn her life has taken now that she is a mother. From accidental activism concerning public breastfeeding, her continued life of sobriety and more stories of when she was an addict, to her recent diagnosis of ADHD as well as the diagnosis of both her husband's and son's autism, nothing is off limits.

A guide to only giving a f*ck about the things that truly matter to you, and ignoring those that don't, thus living a better life.

Once again, we are taken look into the life of a Starfield loving, book loving girl. When Rosie accidentally ruins a book, she ends up paying it off by organizing the massive library. Supposed to be helping her is Vance, who just happens to play the villain in the Starfield movies. He's also the mystery guy from a convention a few months back. Will they get along and find love?? This is a Beauty and the Beast retelling and I enjoyed it.
