Couldn‘t put it down! Made me do a little online search to learn more about these characters.
Another great audiobook. 💗 I found it to be enjoyable, though slower to get into that my normal audiobooks. Not sure how far I would‘ve gotten with in in print though, as I feel I would‘ve lost attention in the slower sections. Still recommend though.
This was the last audiobook I was listening to during #BFCR1, and the first book I‘ve finished for #BFCR2
Enjoyed some more of the tagged audiobook on my walk home from work. I have less than an hour left of listening, but we‘re off to a housewarming party for the evening, so I don‘t think I‘ll be finishing it today. 😫 #audiowalk
Time for my “morning” walk... it‘s actually 1pm, but I slept in EXTRA late this morning 😂
It‘s another gorgeous day, and I‘m loving the tagged audiobook so far. ♥️💫

Psyched for the #charlotteroval race today! Closest Bojangles is hours away, so I‘ll just drink my Cheerwine 💗 Started a new book last night by my newest ‘must buy author‘, Adriana Trigiani. Hoping to read a bit today, but with the race on, I doubt I‘ll pick it up LOL
Day 9 #readingresolutions
For a #wishfulWednesday you need all the stars in heaven to wish upon 😉
When times call for easy, uncomplicated, sumptuous reads, Adrianna Trigiani is my guilty pleasure, and this book is just that. Set in glamorous 1930s Hollywood, it tells of the lives and loves of Clark Gable, Loretta Young, Spencer Tracy, David Niven, and Carole Lombard, to name but a few.
A great palate cleaner. Happy Wednesday, friends.
Heads up! My favorite read from 2016 is on sale right now on kindle for $1.99. Anyone interested in Old Hollywood would find something to like. The author did her research, and it shows! This tells the (historical fiction) story of Loretta Young and Clark Gable, when they starred together in 1935's The Call of the Wild, fell in love, and Loretta became pregnant with Clark's baby. Very taboo back then, especially since he was already married.
Day 3 #JubilantJuly #starsandstripes ⭐️The only book with stars in the title that I have in my stacks with my striped books. It's a great story of old Hollywood with imagined characters mixed in with real classic screen stars.⭐️Forgive the recycled striped books pic from a prompt a few weeks ago. I gave All the Stars in the Heavens to my sister to read & since I don't have it (& I'm lazy😆) I didn't want to re-pull all the books! #lazywins 🤣👍📚
A little slow in places. The story of the lives of golden age actress Loretta Young and the heart throb Clark Gable. Loved the descriptions of 1930s Hollywood
This audiobook was a nice change of pace for me. Kind of a quiet and subdued story of Old Hollywood, love, unrequited love, glamour, and lies meant to protect. Plus, the narrator did a great job differentiating the characters with voices and accents. #thumbsup 👍🏻
I am a huge fan of Clark Gable's only because of Gone with the Wind. Truthfully I knew little about his love affair with Loretta Young or that she bore his daughter secretly. This book begins with the filming of The Call of the Wild, where they supposedly fell in love, and spanned all the way to Youbg's death in 2000. I enjoyed the story but I thought Trigiani meandered way too much and could have written tighter, more focused story.
I really loved this book. As someone very familiar with the story of Clark Gable, Loretta Young, and their daughter Judy who was conceived out of wedlock during the filming of The Call of the Wild, I loved this historical fiction account filling in the details of their relationship. The book was long, but richly told. The author did her research as well, and I only found two timeline errors towards the end of the book. Highly recommended! 5⭐️
Yes, I'm with you sir! Life is too short for missed opportunities. #hopelessromantic
I am so ridiculously excited to read this! Love Clark Gable and Loretta Young. I admit I squee'd a little when I opened the cover and saw this. Thanks to a fellow Litsy reader for putting this on my radar! ❤️
BIG fan of Adri and glad to finally have her latest in paperback. A bit of a departure heading over to Hollywood but she delivers with a glamorous cast of characters, glittering 1930s landscape, and sweeping love story.
