What’s her last name?

Unbroken is Louis Z. Biography. Judy! Is Judy Garland biography. After I read my post I realized it was a little confusing
@Karyn Oh, LOL I thought it was a book called Unbroken by an author named Judy, and the book was so good you added an exclamation point ?
I LOVED The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. I’m also really big on entertainment biographies…Yes Please by Amy Poehler is hysterical. A Little Bit Wicked by Kristin Chenoweth is phenomenal.
I’m SO getting into entertainment biographies too 🙂
Unbroken, The Glass Castle
I really liked “Custer’s Trials” by T. J. Stiles. It’s one of the best biographies I’ve read.
An American Princess by Annejet van der Zijl
Oh yes, The Glass Castle!
Sort of a biography. I love Masters of Doom. It’s about John Carmack and John Romero, the two guys behind Id Software who made Doom and Quake. The audiobook is incredible- narrated by Whil Wheaton. Can’t recommend it enough. I’ve listened to it twice through and will probably listen again soon.
Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson
Bit of a different biography and extremely interesting read on Vittoria Colonna!https://mobyclub.com/review/who-was-vittoria-colonna-just-one-italys-great-poets

Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson
Lost Warrior Part 1 about the life and times of IsaacThomas among the 1700’s Cherokee.
John Adams by David McCullough. Henry James by Leon Edel.
I’m currently reading Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life by John Lee Anderson. It’s really good.
Bob Marley ~ Catch a fire
I’m currently reading Q: The Autobiography of Quincy Jones. This one’s climbing the lists.

It’s about Sidonie Gabrielle Collette
