I‘m not a big fan of Trump. I quite enjoyed this read. Reilly was funny and told some great stories of how golf explains the Trumpster. 5⭐️ #litsyatoz #listsyatoz2019 #letterc #c #bookstagram #bookreview

I think I might have read this years ago, but I couldn‘t remember who did it. I enjoyed it overall, but I‘m not sure I‘m a fan of Hastings.

Cinfhen I‘m embarrassed to say I‘m not REALLY a fan of Agatha Christie 🙈 10mo
4thhouseontheleft Isn‘t this one a Poirot mystery? 10mo
Bookzombie @4thhouseontheleft OH MY GOODNESS! It is! Lol. I retract this for #Booked2019. I was thinking about Christie herself. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 10mo

Bookzombie @Cinfhen I really enjoyed And Then There Were None. We‘ll see how the rest of them go. 🙂 10mo
4thhouseontheleft @Bookzombie The only reason I knew this was because I read it last year. 😂😂 Don‘t be embarrassed. ☺️ 10mo

Worth every millisecond of the 27 hour, 15 minute audiobook. I have so much love for this book, and so much admiration for the three women whom the story revolves around. It's extremely hard to read (or listen to!) in places, as the hardship, abuse and torture experienced is just diabolical and it's hard to believe that this is not fiction but actual fact.
A definite 5🌟

So my dogs chewed up the bottom of the couch when we were out this weekend, but luckily we had just bought a couch cover. Hard to get these two rascals in a picture at the same time usually. #dogsoflitsy

I absolutely loved this #fairytaleretelling of Beauty and the Beast - it definitely took on a different stronger feel than any others I had read before!

I just finished my 1st book of 2019, this tragicomedy set in New Orleans in the 1960s. Ignatius J. Reilly is quite a character, as are several of the others you meet along the way in this story of Ignatius' search for a job and his place in society. Thanks for a great #NewYearWhoDis recommendation @Maria514626 @monalyisha #LitsyAtoZ #C @BookishMarginalia #ReadingClassicsIn2019 #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #192021 #1980

An emotional roller coaster! It was great but it propelled me from anguish to joy back and forth. Overall, a story of triumph over anger and fear. I loved it. 💙

Also I had no idea he had other books out! As a narrator, Alan Cumming is fantastic. I look forward to more.

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I'm sure he'd be great at reading pretty much anything. The Scottish accent! 2y
LoveToReadLiveToRead I listened to this last year, it was fab. I loved his narration too. 2y
No_One @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian yes it is partly his great accent! Love it! 😀 2y
No_One @LoveToReadLiveToRead it was the perfect combination of a trained actor talking about his own life experiences in that amazing accent. 💙 2y

I really enjoyed this! It could be a little confusing at times, especially in the earlier chapters. However, that disjointed/distracted voice was so authentically Cyndi that it didn‘t bother me in the least. She is everything I idolize in role-models: fierce, passionate, caring, generous, self-deprecating and outspoken. I adore her even more after reading this. #readharder2018 #LitsyAtoZ #C #bowie #lennox #catsoflitsy

A blurb about her Girls Just Wanna Have Fun video. I saw Cyndi almost two years ago and she would tell stories between her songs. Her voice is so well captured in this memoir, it‘s fabulous. What an amazingly strong beautiful human this woman is! #readharder2018 #LitsyAtoZ #C

Why is this a classic? Or did I confuse it for that since it comes up so much in searches. This was my first time reading it and I finished. Now I‘m just wondering why did I bother. #AmIMissingSomething #LitsyClassics 5/16 #C #2018christyread

readingjedi Ah, the ultimate Marmite book! 2y
LitLogophile I wondered the same thing when I read it😂 — did NOT love this book. I am planning on rereading it this year though to see if my opinion changed, but I imagine that it hasn‘t. 2y
BookInMyHands I didn‘t care for it at all 😵. 2y

Christyco125 @readingjedi 😂 I had to look that up. I can see that. I know which camp I‘m in. 2y
xicanti @readingjedi that is SUCH a perfect way to describe it. 2y
GypsyKat I can‘t stand this book! 😆 2y
Dulcinella Ouch, I liked it😀 2y
parttimedomestic Ha, I think you HAVE to read it as a a moody teenager! 2y
Christyco125 @parttimedomestic Maybe that‘s it 2y
rachelk In my opinion it‘s only a classic because ‘teenagers‘ (as we think of them today) didn‘t really exist before it was published. Salinger was at the forefront of identifying a newly emerging social category with Holden Caulfield. (edited) 2y
rachelk PS I think his book ‘Nine Stories‘ is much better! 2y
