I am pretty good at keeping up with trending books, but every once in awhile I will find a book where I totally missed the boat. I was scouring Good Will and I saw a copy of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I remembered seeing it on Goodreads and that my friend Janessa had rated it 5 stars so I decided to pick it up. Even then, it sat on my shelf for awhile before I finally decided to read it.
I binged the Hulu series Shrill in like a day (Aidy Bryant is everythingggg.) so when I found out the book was inspired by Lindy West’s memoir I knew I had to pick it up.
One of my guilty pleasures in this world is reading celebrity memoirs. I don’t know why I enjoy them so much. Maybe it’s my own bookish version of reading gossip magazines– except I know I’m getting information straight from the source.
My latest pick from this genre is The Greatest Love Story Ever Told by Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman.
