Brat: An '80s Story | Andrew McCarthy
post image
Pickpick

Bk2 for June is done! If my readings not quite back to what it was, at least there‘s light at the end of the tunnel now thank god👍I enjoyed this memoir more than I thought I would, bring back so many memories of what the 80s were like for a teenager. Though for an actor that looked so cool onscreen, he was a total mess off it. Highly recommend. #BookspinBingo #BigJuneReadathon #NonFictionBingo #ImASurvivor #Pop21 #Booked2022 #ByAJournalist

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 4mo
Cinfhen I thought this was ok as far as celebrity memoirs go but I agree, the 80‘s nostalgia was fab 🎉🤩have you listened to this one SO GOOD !!!! 4mo
Lizpixie @Cinfhen I‘ll have to use my next audible credit on that, I love Rob Lowe! #BratPack4Eva 4mo

Brat: An '80s Story | Andrew McCarthy
post image

Currently 2/3 of the way through this ebook. The autobiography of the 80s Brat Pack member, it‘s hooked me far more than I thought it would at first. Maybe it‘s the fact I was an 80s girl & most of his movies are ones that bring back a time when perms, bows, RaRa skirts & fishnet gloves were my daily armour. Ah, teenager life! For an actor that seems to have it together onscreen, he was a mess off it. #OnceAn80sGirlAlwaysAn80sGirl

I‘ve been dabbling in & out of this memoir the last 2 weeks #Hoopla / at times it‘s physically difficult to understand Michael‘s narration as his Parkinson‘s causes him to slur his words and other times it‘s emotionally difficult to comprehend how much his life has been tested. But his optimism, love for & from his family, tenacity and humor are inspiring.

Cinfhen I‘m cheating….using this for #ReadingAfrica22 #Tanzania as MJF and his family travel there for a safari 😁 @BarbaraBB @Librarybelle (edited) 8mo

Another favorite audio of 2021 🙌🏻 I debated between this audio and Will by Will Smith for my favorite of November but the Grohl was just slightly better for me. A delightful listen 🎧

Lizpixie I‘ve just listened to this as my 1st book of 2022 & freaking LOVED it! I mean, the 90s weren‘t that far past the 80s #oncean80sgirlalwaysan80sgirl #exceptwhenimagrungegirl 9mo
Cinfhen It‘s AWESOMENESS and I LOVE the new hashtag xxxx @Lizpixie (edited) 9mo

1. Just about anything except death metal! I do have a preference for anything emotional, it‘s gotta hit the heart strings. Or make me wanna dance insanely!💃🏻
2. Kim‘s Resort on the Central Coast of NSW. Adults only, all gourmet in house food & drinks included, villa on the beach with a hot tub, double shower, king size bed & turn down service while you‘re at dinner.🥰
3. Don‘t really have one honestly.🤔
4. My grandbabies!👫

Eggs Thanks for the great responses 🎶💗📚👏🏻 1y
Lizpixie 1. Cont.. I also have a huge love for music from the 70s & 80s, there‘s a lot of nostalgia tied up in bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Black Sabbath(my two big brothers were massive headbangers in the 70s/80s), and Cyndi Lauper, George Michael, Simply Red, Tears For Fears, Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Thompson Twins..any I‘m leaving out @Cinfhen #oncean80sgirlalwaysan80sgirl 1y

Cinfhen HELLO 👋......MADONNA 🎶💞🙌🏻😉😘 and then Erasure, Howard Jones, Alphaville, U2, Duran Duran....I could go on all day xxxxxxx 1y
Cinfhen Chicago, REM, Foreigner, Journey 1y
Cinfhen Oy....it‘s endless....B52‘s, Elton John, Phil Collins, Bruce Springsteen 1y
Lizpixie @Cinfhen BROOOCE!! How could I forget the Bruce! And U2, Duran Duran. I loved Howard Jones too & we forgot Paul Young. And The Cure!! 1y
Lizpixie @wanderinglynn it definitely was. They make their own butter, preserves, jams, bread, buy seafood straight off the boats and their Saturday Night Pavlova is famous. They make this fruit tart that I complimented, 15mins later I had the recipe delivered to my table by our waiter with thanks from the chef. Every meal was an All-You-Can-Eat buffet with themes like seafood, Indian. And it started raining just before dinner, when we opened the door👇 (edited) 1y
Lizpixie their was an umbrella there for us. While you‘re at dinner they go in turn down your bed, put the heater on, dim the lights, turn music on & lay out peppermint tea. Best. Holiday. Ever. 1y
Cinfhen 80‘s music WAS THE BEST‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️ 1y
wanderinglynn Wow! I will definitely keep that place in mind when travel opens up. 1y

“It‘s always our friendship I miss”

This was cheeky, dishy & fun! For an #EightiesGirl and one who fell in love with her future husband slow dancing to Careless Whisper, this book was a stroll down memory lane. I remembering seeing Wham in concert (again with future hubby to be) in 1985 & being swept up in the band‘s youth and exuberance🎶💕LOVED hearing Andrew Ridgeley share his journey with George from boyhood classmates to teenage pop stars🎤

erzascarletbookgasm Aww sweet memories 💫 I loved Careless Whispers 🎶 1y
Cinfhen @erzascarletbookgasm Thanks, Jessie 🧡😊Hope all is well with you xx 1y

Freespirit George Michael 💕💕 1y
batsy I love them. GM ❤️ Adding to the list! 1y
Cinfhen This was a really nice tribute (even with a bit of snark) from a friend to a friend @batsy @Freespirit I REALLY enjoyed it💜 1y
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1y
BarbaraBB Love this review ❤️💃 1y
BarbaraBB I cried on Careless Whisper by the way. He kissed another girl 😉 but I‘ve told that before 👵🏼 (edited) 1y
Cinfhen Thanks @BarbaraBB it‘s such an iconic song!!!! I loved this memoir.... so many awesome musical references 1y
Cinfhen I‘m listening to Sowing The Seeds of Love right now @BarbaraBB and I just watched George Michael performing at the Freddy Mercury Tribute! WOW!! His voice was so powerful‼️‼️ 1y
Tera66 Great song, I love your love story. So sweet! 1y
Cinfhen Thanks @Tera66 the end of that night has me puking into a potted plastic plant but that‘s for anther day😉😂 1y
BarbaraBB His tribute to Freddy Mercury blow the audience away. And the rest of the world. Have you seen the rehearsal of it where the big stars like Bowie are watching him uninterested (because Wham?!) and suddenly realize what a voice the man has? It‘s awesome. (edited) 1y
Cinfhen That was awesome!! And Bowie looks like he‘s the record label‘s accountant 😂😂 @BarbaraBB George Michael was such a superstar with that voice & face 💔💔 (edited) 1y
Cinfhen My favorite GM song is the duet with Elton John @BarbaraBB 1y
BarbaraBB That‘s awesome too indeed! 1y

The Last Resort | Susi Holliday

Starting Bk6 of March & Bk2 of the #MarvellousMarch #readathon Its a rainy Sunday here in Sydney & the hubby is away till tomorrow night so I‘m sprawled out in bed with my books, tea & chocolate, revelling in the quiet. He‘s not loud but he has a knack for appearing & wanting to talk just when the book gets interesting! And gets huffy if I say “hang on a minute”. Anyone else have a partner like that?

Lizpixie Oh, this is a thriller about a group of people offered a trip to a luxe island resort who find they‘re trapped with their deepest darkest secret known to everyone else. Sounds a bit like a modern version of Dame Agatha‘s 2y
Cinfhen Is today your birthday, Liz??? I know it‘s March!!! 2y
Lizpixie @Cinfhen hey lovely🙋🏻‍♀️ My birthday is next Sunday, the 21st. My big 50th! I‘ll be posting a giveaway tonight, going to #payitforward👍 2y
