BOOK REVIEW | PoP LEGENDS : BILLY JOEL BY FRED SCHRUERS [GOODREADS]

Billy JoelBilly Joel by Fred Schruers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The biggest question when thinking of Billy Joel is – why hasn’t he released a new album in 20 over years? This biography does not seem to answer that question satisfactorily. This makes the final third rather difficult to get through as it covers the period where Joel becomes an oldies act basically – living off the glories of his past. But before that the book is riveting – providing details during Joel’s successful time as a singer-songwriter/recording artist. For fans only, though.

BOOK REVIEW : TIFFANY HADDISH – THE LAST BLACK UNICORN [GOODREADS]

The Last Black UnicornThe Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quite an easy read. Tiffany’s personality shines through crystal clear, she never shies away from darker side of her life. So she presents herself warts and all. Her positive attitude of making the best of every situation is inspiring, to say the least. That said, she rather paints Jada Pinkett-Smith in an unfavourable light, even with the best intentions. Loads of crazy scenarios and plenty of laughs along the way. Recommended.
