#audiobooks #minireviews – Reese Witherspoon, Whoopi Goldberg, and William Shatner

 

I have been on a book written and narrated by celebs kick lately. Thanks to my eye issue, I have been hooked on audiobooks.

Reese Witherspoon’s Whiskey in a Teacup written and narrated by Reese Witherspoon. I got the audiobook version from the library thanks to the Libby app. I am hoping to buy the print version someday, mainly for the recipes, she had some wonderful ones, but she had the in pdf format for audio, but I could not access it on the Libby app. But this is a great book, it is like sitting on the front porch listening to your friend tell you about her family and giving great tips on gifts and how to plan parties. And talking about her love of the South, made me wish I lived there. If you are a fan of Reese Witherspoon, I would highly recommend this, she is the epitome of a Southern lady.

Whoopi Goldberg’s If Someone says, “You Complete Me,” Run! Big Book or Relationships is hilarious! Once again, I got the audiobook at the library thanks to the Libby app. I loved the fact that she reminds people that she can not give you advice, but she is willing to tell you what worked for her, and then you can decide. She talks about everything, even the S.E.X. word. There are times I was laughing so much I had to put my earphones on so I can hear her. You definitely have to be extremely open-minded, which I admire her for that. She also has a lot of swear words, so if that offends you. If not, I highly recommend this book, not sure the print version would do this justice, would definitely want the audio. She is such a hoot.

William Shatner’s Live Long and… What I learned along the Way with David Fisher is narrated by William Shatner. Another Libby app version from the library. Like Whoopi,(yes, both Star Trek actors, I am a geek) he also says he can not give you advice but can only tell you what worked for him, then you decide for yourself. He has one of those voices that are perfect for narrating audiobooks. I could listen to him tell his stories all day long, and boy does he have stories to tell. Some are quite shocking. It was also surprising to hear how much we had in common. I admit I was and always shall be a Spock gal, but I admire William Shatner, and after reading this, even more so. I am not sure if the print will do him justice, but either way, it is highly recommended for any Trek fan or William Shatner fan.

 

Maybe someday, I can afford to buy these. I would definitely re-read them again.
