  1. A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle
  2. March by John Lewis and Andrew Aydin and illustrated by Nate Powell
  3. My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell
  4. Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacobs
  5. Yes Please by Amy Poehler
  6. Becoming by Michelle Obama
  7. My Mother Was Nuts by Penny Marshall
  8. No Time Like the Future by Michael J. Fox
  9. Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay
  10. Becoming Duchess Goldblatt by Anonymous

How about you? What memoirs have you enjoyed?

I read a couple of these books but they all look amazing. Good reading.

I love memoirs. My favorite right now is _Born a Crime_ by Trevor Noah. Brilliant.

Happy TTT!

I’ve not read very many memoirs, but I have been looking into reading more nonfiction! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

I like memoirs as long as they’re not too dark and depressing. I’ll have to check some of these out. I’ve heard good things about Obama’s book, especially (both Michelle’s and Barack’s, actually).

Happy TTT!
