Every Little Step: My Story
Every Little Step: My Story - Bobby Brown,Nick Chiles

It is always interesting for me to look into the lives of celebrities and see how incredibly crazy they can be. I think most will agree Bobby Brown’s life is at the top of the list when it comes to crazy. In this book Bobby shares details of his time with New Edition, as a solo artist, his various romantic relationships including his marriage to Whitney and his children. In the end I’m left with the impression of a man with a big heart who may not have always done the right thing but is not afraid to step up and atone when he is wrong. Bobby’s grief when it came to losing his mother, father, ex-wife and child hit me particularly hard. It all happens so close together. The strength he exhibits while sharing those details amazes me.

I was definitely entertained, after all Bobby is an entertainer. I was provoked to think and I think I’ve come to see some things in a new light. Overall I really did enjoy this book.

All My Stripes
All My Stripes: A Story for Children with Autism - Shaina Rudolph,Danielle Royer,Jennifer Zivoin

All My Stripes will be used in my future classroom, it is an extremely creative book showing children's differences and. It shows children how to love themselves, even if they are different and I think that is so important as a teacher. I would use this book for a lesson on diversity. The intended audience would be kindergarten to third grade.

The Story of My Tits - Jennifer Hayden
The Story of My Tits - Jennifer Hayden,Jennifer Hayden
  1. I’ve had this on my To Read list for awhile, long enough that I can’t remember where I became aware of it. In one way, every woman could write a book like this. More so than any other visible aspect of femininity, women have fraught relationships with their boobs:  the lack of them is embarrassing to young women, but then, so is having them, since both make one prey to insecurity and harassment from others. Over the years they can change quite dramatically. And then, there’s cancer. Hayden tells her story in a smartass way that isn’t part of the pink ribbonization of breast cancer.

Reading progress update: I've read 82 out of 320 pages.
Thanks for the Money: How to Use My Life Story to Become the Best Joel McHale You Can Be - Joel McHale

Not even gonna lie: this is disappointing.  I picked up Bryan Cranston's memoir and this based on me loving their shows.   Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking bad for Cranston and Community for McHale, and this book.  

 

The humor is really, really forced.   Like super forced.   And while I laughed out loud once or twice, mostly I can see the desperation: McHale wants to be funny, and he makes it look like he's trying.   Instead, I end up feeling.... sad.   Like I want to laugh because I can see he's trying so hard to make me laugh, but it's just so sad how hard he's trying that I end up really wanting to give him a hug. 

 

And I'm not 'hate reading' this.  I really thought it would be genuinely hilarious: what I've seen of him is just that funny.  

 

On the other side of things, Cranston's biography started out strong and is boring me.   This one is, at least, a quick read.
