What I am reading and Welcome!

Good morning fellow addicts   I am glad you stopped by and as usual Jennifer fromwww.crazy-for-books.com
Has posed a really good question .  I am finishing up Damaged by Alex Kava  I am giving away 2 copies
(Leave your comments in the contest  giveaway post further down) and I am also reading Hotel on the
Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford (Boyfriend got a gift I swear)
I just finished "Here's the Deal Dont Touch Me" by Howie Mendell
I am going to brutally honest here .  I had no intention on reading this book at all
I saw Mr. Mendell promoting this book on Good Morning America and I thought
to myself thougt it wasn't for me .  I mean aren't alot of actors,althletes trying
to get us their kinda crappy memoirs?(The only reason I have the book is
because the Amazon seller sent this instead of "Drown" by Junot Diaz.  I wont say
which one because we all make mistakes)   I detest /loathe/hate the idea of
wasting money.  Heck it doesn't even have to be my money and I it drives me nuts.
So that's the real reason I read this book..  Did You know Howie Mendell wasn't diagnosed with Adhd until he was an Adult?   That he married the only girl he actually
dated.. I have a newfound respect for his wife of 30 years especially since fans are
disrespectful at times,their privacy doesn't exist and she has had to do the lion's share
of raising the kids.  Howie Mendell's struggle with Ocd and Adhd makes this a entertaining read.I guess having a sense of humor can get you through some things.  I gave it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.

While I enjoy memoirs, I don't run out to read Hollywood ones. This, however, sounds terrific. My kids love Deal or No Deal.

Great review.

Thanks for your comment on my post about the From The Heart book. It was really great to be able to be a part of it.

I'm interested to read the Howie book as well. Thanks for the review!

I saw Howie Mandell (however you spell it) interviewed on The Bonnie Hunt Show awhile back and it was fascinating to hear him talk about his struggles with ADHD and OCD. It's amazing how much he's overcome.

Anyway, I just stopped by from the Hop. I'm enjoying your blog!
