Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Memoir-Esque Books That You Should Read

Tuesday, April 12, 2016



Hi Everyone!

Just stopping by with another Top Ten Tuesday!  This week's topic is Top Ten X Should Read (where you fill in the blank for X). In my case, I have decided to highlight Memoirs, because they are one of my favorite types of books. I cannot even express how much I love reading them! I think something about understanding another person's experiences is fascinating. 

So go get these books-they are worth checking out! 

Deals with alcoholism and family.

2) Three Little Words
A young woman's experience in Foster care.

Food, travel, romance. Sounds like a good book to me!

This one is about facing your fears!

Do More of What you Love.

Moving across the country is hard and so is making friends!

Cooking, humor, and lots of entertainment.

Hiking and outdoors! Yes, please.

How to cope with being with being in your mid 20's.

More food and overcome hard obstacles.

Have you read any of these? What did you think? What is your favorite memoir-esque recommendation for me? 

Happy Reading!

  1. I've heard of a lot of these, but I haven't read any of them! *gasps* My favourite memoir is probably almost definitely Furiously Happy, which is HYSTERICAL and also so very honest and encouraging and deals with metal illness and just general weirdness. <3 Here's my TTT!

  3. Eat, Pray, Love is the only book I've read from your list!! Have you read Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert??? It's sort of a follow up to Eat, Prat, Love.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2016/04/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-every-russian.html

  4. Stephen King's On Writing would fit into this category, too, although it's purportedly a book about how to write. Which is, as it happens the topic of my TTT.

  6. I loved loved loved The Glass Castle! MWF Seeking BFF was a book club read and I enjoyed it way more than I thought I might. Have yet to read Eat, Pray, Love or Julie and Julia. My Year With Eleanor looks amazing! I figure I would either love or hate The Happiness Project. Nice list!
