What a page-turner! Sharon takes a sharp turn away from a typical memoir template and takes on the gripes and criticisms flung her way throughout her 50-yr career. She‘s so open, candid and freakin hilarious 😂 as she bares her soul thru the juiciest, funniest, touching, and most memorable stories. Sharon‘s many groundbreaking roles (Cagney & Lacey 🙌🏻) have empowered us all, and so will this book.

This book covers so many tough topics, substance abuse and the generational trauma & physical abuse buried behind that. All must be unburied and cleansed on the hard road of recovery, yet it is somehow still so compelling it‘s hard to put down. Knott manages to be open and vulnerable, while also being direct and tough. I‘m very glad she found the way and the will to write this, and that I had the good luck to stumble onto a review and read it.

Great book. Full of humour. Reads like a transcription of an extended interview but that's not a bad thing as you can hear Lemmy's voice in your head as you read.

All in all I enjoyed it. RIP Lemmy! 🖤

A must read for Motörhead fans! ♤

Hello #SheSaid.

I‘m behind myself this week, away on an unexpected vacation! So carry on the good discussion, and I‘ll catch up and join in later this week when we get a rainy afternoon ;~)

vlwelser I loved this book. And she's so brave to tell her story. I do want to educate myself more on the residential schools, as she suggests. I love that she ends with healing. Overall I really like how this was written. 7d
ravenlee I‘m amazed that Knott made such a difficult tale such a compelling read. How can you take addiction, abuse, despair, and turn it into a story that makes me not want to put the book down? Agree with @vlwelser that I need to continue my self-education on residential schools and violence against Indigenous women. 7d
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Finally got a chance to finish this one up myself and I have to agree with you all, such difficult subject matter and yet such a compelling read. And I loved the way she ended it in this final section, with change, the positives, and the ability to forgive oneself which is often the hardest thing to do. 3d

I just started re-reading Rushdie's autobiography, Joseph Anton, which is one of my all-time favorite books. I've been wanting to read it again since last month's unfortunate stabbing.

This is the 1st time I read a #nonfiction book by this author and it wasn't bad. It's short and sort of like an #autobiography with a focus on #feminism, how she's always been a feminist and the things she's done to prove this. She's a very engaging writer but I rated 3.5 bc I feel she uses very non-inclusive language, which she says is for simplicity's sake but then there're some comments abt certain topics that don't feel genuine or respectful

Read this because it was on its way out of house and I didn‘t know we had it. I loved his kids picture books done with his wife Janet. My favourites The Jolly Postman series and Peepo!
Memories of his childhood in prose and verse.
Long weekend here and after my morning walk and coffee with friends I‘m curled up reading .❤️❤️❤️.

MrsMalaprop Sounds like a perfect day 🥰 7d
