Started this one today on audio borrowed from the library.
Read by Richard Armitage who's voice is so dreamy.

Coreyography: A Memoir | Corey Feldman
post image
Pickpick

I always loved The Goonies and Lost boys you always looked so happy together when in actual fact you were all drug fuelled disasters!
Corey was very honest in this book about everything I love the fact that he admits to his own mistakes and relapse.
He lifted the lid of the dark side of Hollywood and continues to stay off the drugs and raise his son, he never shy's away from his mistakes which I think is very responsible. #readingmyownbooks

kaysworld1 I do think the 2 Corey's being together was a disastrous thing and should never have been reunited at all! 5d
kaysworld1 They were just kids! Its is truly devastating what goes on we know nothing about. 5d
kaysworld1 Hello @Caroline2 would you like me to send you the book as I have finished it and it's in my charity shop bag? X 5d

Mrs Frances Ellen Watkins Harper you are an amazing Poet and I am so grateful to find your poetry on audio, so far my favourite is Double Standard and oh so true it is.
I am glad to read you were born free and you had a very successful career in poetry.

I enjoyed the first part of this book very informative and honest.
The second part of this book was a bit slow, she tries to make it more funny which just fails considering the book is about not making fun of periods! #readingthelibrary #librarybooks #periods #Femanist #reading #books #femaleauthor #female ♀️📚🔴

This is my second time attempting the read this book and I actually got to the end of it thanks to audio books.

Through fragments of journal's, blog posts and messages you unvail the story.
Between fiction and delusion, between nightmare and reality where does one begin and end.

#currentlyreading Woman Talking by Miriam Toews
This is a great book so far but it is making me angry. When it comes to being raped and attacked you do not ever do nothing even when people don't believe you, ridicules you, shames you being quiet is never an option even if you stand to loose everything.

I read this book in one sitting.
I really enjoyed this book everything she says is how I have been feeling for ages all the questions, all the anger, all the unfairness and inequality it was nice to read someone else feels the same way.
My favourite part was reading about marriage and the changing of your last name when I had this problem I didn't want to give up my name and it caused so much trouble with his family. #librarybook #feminist ♀️🤟📚

TrishB I didn‘t change mine. But it caused (and still does) so much hassle and anger, still gets me mad now! 3w
kaysworld1 @TrishB The main hassle was his brother and sister in law he kept saying that I wasn't part of the family because I didn't take their family name. I did eventually very reluctantly and was never happy about it. 3w
TrishB Sounds awful ☹️ I had all that. My MIL doesn‘t think I‘m a proper wife because of it and I get cheques for gifts in a name I don‘t have! I have to also say my mum didn‘t like it either! 3w

kaysworld1 @TrishB Sounds like a good guy. Mine was abusive so I eventually left when it became physical but I'm ok 4 years later. Woman and books helped me ❣️ 3w
Addison_Reads I also didn't change my name when I got married. My husband could care less, and most of our family doesn't have a problem. However, complete strangers at times when I correct them about my last name like to tell me that it's wrong and it drives me nuts. 3w

“As the Korean saying goes, do the work of the dead in the land of the living”.

Women harvest together, sort together, and sell together. The sea itself is communal.

This is very personal post.
I've been having a bit of trouble dealing with thing's properly and I was wondering if you guys have any self help books about Grief. How to deal with it when you're stuck and it's getting darker I know I'll never get over it but I just need something.

I don't usually ask or read self help books but I know the litsy world won't judge me of laugh at me for asking. 😭 🤟

Jenken1998 Hugs. There are many great books on grief but dont be surprised if you have trouble concentrating and find it hard to read. Its very normal. A grief group is a great idea. I have run many of them as a therapist. Its nice to be surrounded by supportive people who know what you are going through. 1mo
stephothebesto If you want one that is about grieving, but also about something completely different, you could try H is for Hawk. The author narrates the audiobook and I find her voice very soothing. 1mo

I feel were this woman is coming from with a cheating lying husband, struggling with abuse in all forms, feeling stuck and worthless. She has the same mantra as me #NeverGiveUp

This book is a very heartfelt read and she don't hold back on the details.

Well that was disappointing.
Not what I was expecting at all.

Again the only thing I learnt about her was apart from smoking, drinking and can't hold a man is she is a good story teller and a adrenaline junkie!
I am very sorry she was assassinated but sometimes you do see the warning signs and maybe you should listen to them.
