It’s been awhile since I’ve linked up with my girls, Katie and Molly, for their Bookworm Wednesdays. Baby steps back into blogging people 😉 I’ve been reading a good deal on my commute to work everyday.
I couldn’t get enough of Leah Remini’s book, Troublemaker, about surviving Hollywood and Scientology. It was incredibly fascinating to read about the ins and outs of Scientology. It’s unbelievable how much of a cult it is and how so many people get sucked into it. I was amazed how much she revealed about Scientology. I couldn’t put this book down. In addition to writing about Scientology, she also wrote about making it in Hollywood and her rise to fame, which I think is always interesting.
If you didn’t already know, I enjoy reading celebrity biographies. They lead such interesting lives and it’s so fun to get a peek into their worlds. (I also enjoy memoirs about non famous people too.I’m just very curious about people in general.)
I read Drew Barrymore’s Wildflower which I also really enjoyed. She had a crazy upbringing being a child star and it was so interesting to hear it from her point of view. She’s come a long way and now is happily married with two young little girls. It’s refreshing how honest and forthcoming she is. It was a quick read and I liked it. From her tumultuous childhood she learned a lot of really valuable life lessons.
I’m in the middle of reading, Honeymoon with my Brother by Franz Wisner. It’s about a guy who was left at the altar but ends up going on the his honeymoon with his brother. Then they continue to travel the world together. I love books about travel and this one is written really well.
The next book I will be reading is called The Dept. of Speculation for our first book club pick. It wasn’t my pick, so it will be interesting to see what kinds of books other people choose. I’m super excited to start our book club this month. I’ll keep you guys posted. 🙂
Can’t wait to read what you all are reading. I always love a good book recommendation.
