The intimate, inside story of the ultimately tragic life of multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse (“Rehab,” “Back to Black”)  is told by the one person most able to tell it—Amy’s closest advisor, her inspiration, and best friend: her father, Mitch. Amy, My Daughter includes exclusive, never-before-seen photos and paints an open and honest portrait of one of the greatest musical talents of our time.


Mitch Winehouse is Amy's father. He has one book translated in several languages.


REVIEW:
What a powerful read, and at the end, I'm in tears.
As a parent, I couldn't imagine having to bury your child. Adult or not. It is something I know I wouldn't ever get over, so my heart cries for her dad.
This book is from Mitch's point-of-view, and being her dad and best friend, he knew more than anyone.
I remember watching it all unfold in the media, them calling her 'Wino'. Seeing her dad's view really opened my eyes to her situation. She wasn't lost, or even a druggie, though at one point she had to kick drugs. She was a drunk. A fatal drunk. She wanted to be sober, but was caught in a cycle.
Such a sad way to go. Yet, if you look at that '27 club', weren't they all drunks and super talented?!
If you're a fan, read this. You will gain so much respect for her and her dad. More than you already have. If you're not a fan, read it. You probably have some misconceptions about her like I did. Thank the media for that....

5/5

  1. Sounds like a good one. I saw the film about her awhile ago and really felt for her after hearing her story.

  2. Such a shame what she did to herself! It seemed like she just control her addiction.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
