The Time of My Life by Bill Medley
Rate this book
Clear rating
I read this book on a Saturday afternoon--couldn't put it down. I loved hearing about Bill Medley's life, as I loved the songs he and Bobby Hatfield sang in the 60's. Getting into the recording field was so much different in the 60's. I didn't know t ...more

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow by Sophia Loren
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book is about Sophia Loren, reminiscing about her life, and mainly about her movies. She only talks good about everyone, so it's a bit boring. She mainly talks, movie, to movie. It was interesting that she and Carlo were forced to live in other ...more

Handbook for an Unpredictable Life by Rosie Pérez
Rate this book
Clear rating
I didn't know anything about Rosie Perez, except that she was an actress. The majority of this book is about her childhood. I am amazed that she can remember so much about her life before 5 years old, and with such details. She was at first raised by ...more

I picked up this library book, because I remembered seeing Mario Lopez in "Saved by the Bell." I found out that I actually know the Chula Vista, CA neighborhood where he grew up, as we would visit family in that area. Mario was lucky in that he had p ...more

This is really what I would call a "beach read"--something very easy and entertaining. I was always trying to figure out who the various characters were, since it reminded me of a poorly written Jacky Collins novel. Spoiler Alert: She has a radio per ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
I gave this a 3 rating, because it didn't live up to a Pulitzer Prize book, in my opinion. I mainly didn't like reading about all the drug usage. I read this for a book club, but I couldn't get through the first pages, in time for the discussion, so ...more

I picked this up at the library, after watching the movie another time. I wanted to see how the book differed from the movie. It's actually the first Stephen King novel I've read, since I have not read horror novels. This book really seems more reali ...more

Charlotte Brontë
“Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh: it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God's feet, equal — as we are!”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
