The Tender Bar: A Memoir | J. R. Moehringer
post image

This is by far the most #memorablememoir. I recommend this book to everyone. He's dealing with universal struggles that everyone can relate to, but in such intensely beautiful writing. I always re-read this book when I am between books. I love it more every time. #booktober

ValerieAndBooks I have this in my TBR. Need to move it up! 6y
Hollie Yes, @ValerieAndBooks and let me know what you think when you are done! 6y
Leftcoastzen It is one of the best books I ever read. 3y

Another #MemorableMemoir. The cover blurb on this one sums it up quite nicely but the rest of the book also covers her life AFTER she is brought out of the jungle. Mind-blowing. 😮 #MemorableMemoirs #Booktober

BookishFeminist This looks so good! 6y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa That looks very good! 6y

LauraJ Where do you find all these amazing books? 6y
LeahBergen @LauraJ It's my superpower. 😉 (no, my life revolves around reading books, reading ABOUT books, buying books, WANTING to buy books, smelling books, organizing my books ... you know, just the average Litsy-er! 😂) 6y
Yournewfriendsams Omg what a story! 6y

I'm not keen on reading nonfiction (for fun, I read a ton of it for work!) but the stories of these two ladies are super important, and funny! I've read one #memorablememoir from these super women, and the other feels like it has been in my library queue forever. I really enjoyed the #audiobook of Bossypants (Fey reads it) and I'm holding out for the audio version of Yes, Please. #booktober

RealLifeReading Oh definitely listen to Yes Please. The guest stars alone are worth a listen! 6y
Larkken @RealLifeReading there's only one person in front of me! I'm excited 🎉 6y
Larkken This also is perfect for a belated #octphotochallenge #bestnarrator! @LibrarianRyan 6y

Part two of this year's memoirs - the audio reading version. Not all read by the author, but all with large impact in their own individual ways. #booktober #memorablememoirs #memorablememoir

kspenmoll Want to read Amanda palmer- 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @kspenmoll It is most wonderful. She narrates the audio, and that added a lot to the memoir! 6y
kspenmoll Will get audio then- new for me! 6y

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly | Jean-Dominique Bauby

I love reading memoirs! This year I have read a whole passel of wonderful ones. This is part one - those I read visually (paper or book). Every one has its unique voice and tale, so I'm not picking a top favorite. That's like choosing between children! #booktober #memorablememoir #memorablememoirs

RealLifeReading Have only read Diving Bell which is so sad and so good. 6y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @RealLifeReading I loved every one of these. I think Diving Bell was the most devastating though. 6y

I'm choosing a #memorablememoir that is really personal to me. My aunt released her memoir a few months back and it was so well done. There were so many things I didn't know about her life, her struggle, her barriers. She is an African-American woman that rose through the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department, a breast cancer survivor, a wife, a mother and so much more. I love her. #octophotochallenge #booktober

I-read-and-eat She sounds like a very special woman. 💛 6y

TheNextBook @BookishFeminist she is incredible. Definitely someone I love and admire! I geeked out and called her when I found myself in the book! 6y
Godmotherx5 Sounds wonderful. You should geek out. You're amazing, too. 6y
TheNextBook @Godmotherx5 I wish it has been me doing something super awesome. It wasnt. It was us together on a trip when I was still in diapers! 😂😂😂😂 6y

Some of the #memorablememoir s I have read the last few years.

post image

#booktober #memorablememoir I highly recommend this memoir that tells the story of the "seven good years" between the birth of the author's son and the death of his father. Beautiful story about making a life in The midst of war.

sj_connor This sounds a little like The Year of Magical Thinking, which I loved. 6y
Marchpane Loved this book and I hope Keret writes more in this vein. So good 💕 6y
