I feel were this woman is coming from with a cheating lying husband, struggling with abuse in all forms, feeling stuck and worthless. She has the same mantra as me #NeverGiveUp

This book is a very heartfelt read and she don't hold back on the details.
From abuse and lawsuit's to wigs and fishnets Tina Turner truly is a spectacular woman.
I am glad she found real love in the end 💖

When you read a Tina Turner memoir (1986 or 2018), you can‘t help feeling empowered, ready to take on the world and ready to get up and dance! Now at age 79, Tina has found new love, still hasn‘t seen the biopic film What‘s Love Got To Do With It and still lives life to its fullest. She‘s also an avid reader of Chopra, Dante & Horst. “Something for the spirit, something for the intellect and something for the senses.” Tina is simply the best!🙌🏻

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So there‘s still hope for me if she found love at 79 🤣🤣🤣 5mo

I really enjoyed this book. I'm not a huge Tina Turner fan but I enjoy a few of her songs. She sure does have a big story to tell and went through a lot in her life so far.

Simply the best!!
She really is.
This really touched me, of course we all know what her husband did to her but when you read from her own hand it's just.... Wow.
The pictures are pretty and she writes from the soul.

Here's a #staffpick from basement bookseller boice: My Love Story by Tina Turner. 🎶💜⠀
“This is the perfect book if you‘re looking to stay motivated in your life. Tina Turner has overcome a stroke, cancer, a kidney transplant and suffered the loss of her eldest son to suicide last year. Tina reminds us to 'keep going' as she‘s consistently done. I take her words to heart as I work through my own challenges and pursue my dreams.“

#MarchIntoThe70s This song (Wild World) ranks in my all time top 10, there‘s just something about the chords & melodies that stop me in my tracks every time I listen. So why I thought of Mel Gibson & Tina Turner in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is an absolute mystery 😁😂🤣😂I guess it‘s those images of a #WildWorld and I‘m just sayin Tina Turner, she‘s “simply the best” 🎶♥️ I‘m looking forward to reading her memoir. https://youtu.be/SvCyFHWBUlc

SharonAlger That would be an amazing, yet gut wrenching memoir. 11mo
Cinfhen And I had to share Cat https://youtu.be/Jta56wBl7SM 11mo
Cinfhen I was hoping she would narrate the audio @SharonAlger but she doesn‘t 😥😭😢 (edited) 11mo

Velvetfur I don't think I could read her memoir, not after watching that brutal film 🙁 11mo
Velvetfur I mean the film about Tina's life, not Mad Max! 11mo
Cinfhen Oh, I forgot about the film @Velvetfur thanks for the reminder!!! Most check Amazon Prime & Netflix 😍 11mo
Velvetfur @Cinfhen Y'welcome 👍 11mo
Breanne1 I can‘t wait to read her memoir. She is and was my absolute favorite artist!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 11mo
Chrissyreadit @Cinfhen this is one of my absolute favorite songs also! I played Cat Stevens a lot when my kids were little so I could feel soothed. 11mo

She's still Simply the Best and I love her all the more for taking the time to tell more of the story. And what a love story!

I'm 46, the same age she was when she found Erwin. Hmmm, maybe it is still out there for me.
