OutsmartYourShelf

Pickpick

Dame Julie Walters is something of a national treasure in the UK. In her role as Petula Gordino, in Dinnerladies, she doesn't even have to speak to have me in fits of giggles. She's a wonderful comic actor with her facial expressions saying a thousand words. She also starred in one of my favourite films of all time - Educating Rita.

3.5🌟 (Continued in comments)

OutsmartYourShelf (If you haven't already watched it, then do so at once. It's a great film with moments of humour but it's also a window onto early 1980s Britain & the class & education systems which still existed then. It also stars Michael Williams - Dame Judi Dench's late husband - in a supporting role).

OutsmartYourShelf This autobiography covers from her early years in Edgbaston, Birmingham through to her role as Molly Weasley in the Harry Potter films. There were some moments where I actually laughed out-loud, but I did think that her film career was sped through rather quickly compared to her early years. I would have liked to hear more about her friendship & working relationship with Victoria Wood, but it is what it is. 3w
OutsmartYourShelf Overall, enjoyable with some genuinely funny moments.

OutsmartYourShelf @MrsK 😀 It was published over 10 years ago but I saw it at a local charity book sale so grabbed a bargain. 3w

This was an… interesting book.
The katie‘s writing style is 👌🏼 and the story line was Original and amazing. But the idea wasn‘t executed well. It‘s pretty fast paste and got me through a reading slump but that‘s the only good thing about it.

I grew up near Molly‘s hometown and I worked at the school where her mom was a librarian. It was fun to remember the local places she mentioned that are long gone. Audiobook was the right choice for this one. Molly reads with a lot of emotion and I found myself smiling through her stories.

Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family | Ron Howard, Clint Howard

A memoir written from the child actors and bothers Ron and Clint Howard and how their loving father and mother guided and protected them. From their farming Oklahoma roots to their days on the red carpet these two Hollywood legends lead the reader in tandem on the personal journey from boyhood to the present. Fun, heartfelt, and personal. Lovely.

Just sneaking in this #DoubleSpin read before midnight so it counts for July. Whew! 😅 Such an uplifting memoir by these cool siblings who still support each other, and had insightful parents who steered them well in their careers. Learned so much about Ron‘s segue into directing, and Clint‘s memorable character roles, especially on Star Trek! They even mentioned the defunct newspaper I used to work for in Burbank. Great fun!

It was a great listen but towards the end you could hear him sounding angry/ bored.
It was good to learn more about his personal life and that he's one who doesn't chase Hollywood.

Well he sure does pack a lot in this book!
He also rambles on and always mixes everything up.

I liked this memoir! I‘m continuing my reading theme this year of memoirs, and still enjoying it! I have not seen Breaking Bad, but I still really enjoyed learning about his life and work. What I‘m discovering is that it‘s still worthwhile to read memoirs of people even if you aren‘t super familiar with them.

Suet624 Yes! Agreed! 2mo

Characters were amazing: they had realistic problems and you could relate to them. I loved their character arc as well.

This book was really sweet but also somehow inspirational. I loved the message of this book.

This book didn't have unnecessary drama and that made me so happy.
