Memoirs I Recommend and Want to Read

I enjoy reading memoirs, but only usually do it when I really admire the person. Reading a memoir is great if I want to feel closer to someone by reading more about their life that I wouldn't otherwise have any way of knowing. So far I've only read eleven memoirs. There are so many more I want to read, so have put together three memoirs I recommend and three that I want to read.

Anything But Books Tag

A few weeks ago I was tagged by Rebecca @mylifeasasportsfangirl to do the Anything But Books Tag. Thank you for tagging me, Rebecca! It's nice to take a break from books and talk about other things. This tag was originally created by Reador Rot.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable.
