Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini #BookReview @LeahRemini #LeahRemini

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology

Blurb

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The outspoken actress, talk show host, and reality television star offers up a no-holds-barred memoir, including an eye-opening insider account of her tumultuous and heart-wrenching thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology.

Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost.

That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices.

Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology’s causes grew increasingly intertwined. As an adult, she found the success she’d worked so hard for, and with it a prominent place in the hierarchy of celebrity Scientologists alongside people such as Tom Cruise, Scientology’s most high-profile adherent. Remini spent time directly with Cruise and was included among the guests at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes.

But when she began to raise questions about some of the church’s actions, she found herself a target. In the end, she was declared by the church to be a threat to their organization and therefore a “Suppressive Person,” and as a result, all of her fellow parishioners—including members of her own family—were told to disconnect from her. Forever.

Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini’s remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family. This is a memoir designed to reveal the hard-won truths of a life lived honestly—from an author unafraid of the consequences.

Praise for Troublemaker
 
“An aggressively honest memoir . . . Troublemaker is the most raw and revealing Scientology memoir to date.”Entertainment Weekly
 
“Leah’s story is a juicy, inside-Hollywood read, but it’s more than that. It’s a moving story about the value of questioning authority and how one woman survived a profound crisis of faith.”People
 
“Remini [offers] up some juicy tidbits from her decades in the church.”Newsweek

 

My Review

 

 

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and ScientologyTroublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini is an intriguing story of her life. I have been a fan of Leah since King Of Queen, she is an fantastic actress. I have always been intrigued about her lifestyle and how she became a member of Scientology and of course what is Scientology.
I have watch her recent show about Scientology and that show did answer some of my questions, but not enough about how Leah got involved in this Cult.

When I saw that Leah Remini was also the narrator of this book on Audible I knew I had to listen to this book. I was right listening to her read her story made this book so worth listen to it. It took me a little over 7 hours and I listened to it in one day. She has a very good voice to listen to. She is a great story teller. Yes, it is that good.

This story starts with Leah telling about her childhood and that to me makes it seem more real. I am very happy that she told the story from the start. This book gave a lot of information about her life, how she survived and where she is now.

Leah is very blunt about everything she says and tells it like it is through her eyes. She does bring up Tom Cruise and I personally have not been a fan of his for a long time. She answered some questions about him.

She brings up a lot of interesting points about Scientology and I wonder how it can even be a church? Seems like a scam to me and I am glad she was able to open her eyes and leave the cult. Even though she is successful in her acting career and worked very hard for it. She also had commitment with the “church” she spent a lot of hours giving to her “church”.

I am glad I read (listened) this book, I wonder if she would have joined as an adult? She was introduced to the “church” by her mom when she was a teenager.
Another question I have does Scientology actually help people? Or they just what the money.
I highly recommend reading this book, and better yet listen to it by audio, really worth it.

THE GRASS WAS ALWAYS BROWNER by Sacha Jones #ReleaseBlast #Giveaway @TastyBook Tours @FinchPublishing

THE GRASS WAS ALWAYS BROWNER
Sacha Jones
Releasing May 1st, 2016
Finch Publishing

 

The
Grass Was Alway Browner
by Sacha Jones is the story of a
strong-willed, smart yet often less than sensible, curious and questioning girl
growing up as the middle-child of three children. Her parents are old, and
old-fashioned, deeply impractical, idealistic and naive, not best suited to negotiating
the rough and rugged terrain of suburban Sydney in the 1970s-80s.
Sacha
is not only the middle child, but she is stuck in the middle of the muddle and
mess of her family’s situation. She sees and suffers more than her siblings do
– or so she feels. However, one advantage of her position is that she is sent
to study ballet to treat her asthma, and through ballet she finds a way out of
her predicament.
Sacha’s
determination to escape her humdrum existence and ‘become Russian’ saw her push
through and succeed against the odds (wrong-shaped head, wrong feet, overall
wrong build) and a father who is strongly against her becoming a ballet dancer.
He describes ballet as ‘a frivolous and selfish pursuit, too focused on
appearances.’ His own dreams are focused on a desire to save the Third World.
However, in their very different ways, Sacha and her father are more alike than
either would care to admit.
In
becoming a dancing star, Sacha surprises no-one more than her legendary dance
teacher – an actual Russian – Mrs P, Tanya Pearson. However, her father was
right about ballet.
Although
it gives Sacha the escape she desires, there is a heavy price to pay. And when
she sets off for London to further her dance career, it is in part because the
Australian dance scene betrayed her trust.

Award-winning
playwright, poet and novelist Stephanie Johnson says of The Grass Was Always
Browner, “Nineteen seventies suburban Sydney comes winningly alive in Sacha’s
light-hearted girlhood memoir of boundless optimism, pink milk, tutus, triumph
at the Eisteddfod and a horse in the back garden.”
The
Grass Was Always Browner
is a laugh-out-loud
memoir and a cautionary reminder that the grass is not always greener on the
other side of the fence.
