Cloris: My Autobiography by Cloris Leachman
My word, Cloris Leachman has lived a LIFE! I've always been a big fan, but didn't know a lot about her or her journey. She's delightfully candid, honest, fun and normal. This is a person who has lived her life fearlessly, open to new adventures and experiences. She started out doing radio voice work, being a theater understudy, etc. Eventually earning a reputation as a dependable, hard worker with a lot of talent. She shared the Broadway stage with Katherine Hepburn, her husband's best friend was Marlon Brando, Judy Garland's kids hung out at her house, etc. She knew and/or worked with a who's who in Hollywood. Her range of work is mind-boggling. She's done drama, comedy, TV, Broadway, movies. Winning an Oscar and a lot of Emmys along the way. She's a legend but I don't think she knows she is. She's a mom and grandma and a really cool lady. I breezed through this book in 2 days, loving every minute. She even gives you a verbal hug at the very end, like she said she would like to hug you and to consider yourself hugged. Who does that? It seems corny but it was so sweet. I highly recommend this book, it was so good.

Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath the Skin by Andrew Wilson
I always seem to read (or re-read) a McQueen book (and watch endless McQueen videos on YouTube) between Christmas and New Years. Always. I love him, I love his work, I love his shows, I hate he's gone. This book may be my favorite biography of him, it went into a lot of depth and there was a lot of information that I wasn't previously aware of. It's a hard read at times because of his troubled soul but following his journey is so fascinating. You didn't want it to end in a way because you know what was coming. I highly recommend this book. It's a must read for any McQueen fan!
Here are the McQueen books I own and love:

Winter Soldier: The Complete Collection by Ed Brubaker and others
I know, I know, it's 2017 Jenny, why are we still talking about 2016 books? Because I'm tragically behind on my reviews of the final few books I read last year. So expect a few more 2016 book reviews. Okay, here's the sometimes hard to find Winter Solider collection by Ed Brubaker. I liked this one, but not as much as the Captain America series he did (this is the next book that ties into that series). I have a soft spot for Bucky Barnes so I enjoyed it, but it's not a "must read", you don't miss too much. It follows Bucky after he was Captain America for a while, and he's back in the Winter Soldier garb. It was a super fast read and if you like the Winter Solider/Bucky then pick it up because Brubaker does tell a good story.
Here are my reviews of the Captain America series if interested:
Captain America, Vol 1: Winter Soldier Ultimate Collection by Ed Brubaker and others
Captain America Vol. 2: Red Menace Ultimate Collection by Ed Brubaker and others
The Death of Captain America by Ed Brubaker and others

I had to go to Kohl's today to return something. Why do I never think to go there on the regular? Anyway, I was so impressed with the range of cute graphic tops/sweatshirts/tees. Perfect for weekend or lounge wear. Here were some of my favorites:
