Swooning!!! Loving this memoir 🥰Audio is a MUST!! If your an #80sGirl or guy this is a trip down memory lane!! Bonus if you‘re participating in #ReadingAmericas23 this could count towards #Jamaica BTW: War is STILL one of my all time favorite albums 🙌🏻

BarbaraBB Mine too. Great suggestion! Maybe I do have my alternative for Jamaica @Megabooks 😀. Does he read it himself? 3mo
BarbaraBB I already see he does 😂 3mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB 👍🏻👍🏻 I initially passed on this at the library due to length, but I may come back to it. 3mo

TrishB October is hubby‘s fave, I think he has about 15 vinyl versions. 3mo
Cinfhen He also goes to #ElSalvador @BarbaraBB and #Ethiopia - he reads and sings 🙌🏻❣️and he gives the “story” behind some of the bands most iconic songs, which makes every song now more meaningful @Megabooks - I think you‘d both LOVE the audio. Bono is poetic, a real humanitarian 3mo
Cinfhen I think I love Joshua Tree second most @TrishB but I get the sense that Bono is most connected to October 3mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @TrishB October is one of my faves too, along with Boy and Under a Blood Red Sky. Along the way I liked them less 3mo
Hooked_on_books I‘m an Achtung, Baby gal myself. You may have convinced me to listen to this one. I do love the man. 3mo
Cinfhen I promise you‘ll probably love him more @Hooked_on_books !!! Like @BarbaraBB I like their earlier stuff but im still a fan of the man, the band and the music 🎶♥️😊 3mo
TrishB Hubby followed them round in their very early days and has slept on their hotel room floors way before they were famous. Despite some of the bad press (mainly Bono) gets he still loves them dearly for the early days. I know he is really looking forward to listening to him in a couple of weeks. 3mo
Cinfhen VERY COOL!!! I have a feeling #MrB is gonna love this memoir @TrishB (edited) 3mo
Kangaj1 I got hubby the print version and he bought himself the audio. He is loving this book, so I may have to read it too. 3mo
Cinfhen It‘s an investment of time @Kangaj1 but well worth it 💗 3mo

So I already nixed my first download {too complicated ~ Cold Millions} Maybe I‘ll have better luck with some of these.... @Megabooks recommended top two,which I‘m sure will be perfect 🤞🏼🤞🏼If anyone else has some “light” audiobook suggestions feel free to leave titles below 😻Thanks

TrishB I read a Rowell one as part of the author a month- definitely light ❤️😁 2y
IamIamIam You can't go wrong with Sue Grafton! The narrator is awesome! I loved the Penderwicks on audio too! 2y
Megabooks The Demi Moore is good. I think you‘d really enjoy it! #80sgirl 2y

Cinfhen Yay!!! I‘m already feeling hopeful @TrishB @IamIamIam @Megabooks 😘 2y
IamIamIam I absolutely love Richard Russo also!!! He's mostly funny but poignant too. This always makes me laugh out loud! 2y
squirrelbrain I‘m enjoying this one at the moment... 2y
KarenUK Or this one is a lovely comfort listen 2y
KarenUK Or this one 🤷‍♀️😘 2y
squirrelbrain I just listened to The Switch too @KarenUK - lovely and fluffy but a decent storyline and a bit sad in places too... the perfect all-rounder! 2y
KarenUK @squirrelbrain And I just stacked Olive... sounds just my cup of tea 👯‍♀️💕 2y
squirrelbrain I think you‘ll like it @KarenUK - we often like the same books, don‘t we?! #booktwins 2y
Cinfhen I‘m loving all of these suggestions @KarenUK @squirrelbrain @IamIamIam going to check my various subscription services....and I should have known you‘d suggest a David Nicholls, Karen ♥️ 2y
squirrelbrain I‘m listening to Olive on Scribd, if you have that Cindy. 2y
LiteraryinLawrence I agree about The Switch. 2y
AlaMich This one is a memoir but it‘s pretty funny. The author reads it and she is a standup comic. 2y
Cinfhen Thanks @AlaMich I‘m heading into a mandatory 14 day quarantine once I land, so I think I‘ll have plenty of listening time...collecting these recommendations is awesomeness 2y
Cinfhen I‘m checking Scribd 💕Thanks @squirrelbrain 2y
CarolynM I loved 2y
Cinfhen I added it to my TBR following your review @CarolynM I hope the audio is good 🤞🏽 2y

I‘m not a gamer and I‘m not the target audience for this book but I loved it! The 80s pop culture was awesome (yes, there was a LOT of it , but as an 80s kid, I didn‘t mind) and it held my attention throughout. Now I want to see the movie! #booked2019 #booktomovie
#popsugarreadingchallenge #gameorpuzzle

StayCurious The movie is really good! 3y
Cinfhen I should watch the film too❣️The book was fun especially as an #80sGirl 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage Good pick! I enjoyed both the book and the movie. 3y

Cinfhen I get it @vivastory such CLEVER marketing ‼️‼️‼️ 4y
JamieArc @Cinfhen Yes - The one that looks like a yearbook! I just got a beautiful book of Jem comics that is designed really well and a great throwback to the 80s as well! 4y
