One of my favorite memoirs of all time! The auhtor was born to survivalists in Idaho who believed that doomsday was coming. As a result, Tara didn't step foot in a classroom until she was 17. It was her thirst for knowledge, however, that led her to Cambridge and Harvard. UNMISSABLE.  Beautiful journey of self-discovery.

Lauren Hough was born into a cult, which practiced abject poverty and sexual abuse. This is a memoir about her childhood, reclaiming her identity, and growing into the person she was meant to be.

Throughout this whole book I marveled at the author's strength, raw vulnerability, and sharp wit.

"What did I just read?"-Me at the end of this book.

This psychological thriller is compulsively readable. It had me questioning my own sanity, the narrator's, and her husband's.

Excellent, yet unsettling read.

Heartwarming and hearbreaking all at the same time. 

"A House in Mango Street" is credited as a work that began to give Latina women and writers their (public) voice. It follows Esperanza, a young Mexican-American girl in poverty. This book is so evocative and had me overcome with emotion. I couldn't recommend it more.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles...the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who in the end may know the triumph of high achievement, and if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." 

You can never go wrong with the brilliant, witty Brene Brown. Based on over a decade of research, Brown argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage and meaningful connection."
