For me, memoirs just might be the perfect literary genre. As a nonfiction junkie who always wants to be learning (sorry, can’t help it), they allow me to immerse myself in a rich plot line while still scratching my personal development itch. And what’s not to love about a truly intimate view into the life of someone with a fascinating true story to tell?
These are the memoirs that have impacted my mindset the most in recent years. Each of them gave me a new perspective and have subtly permeated the way that I think.Start the new year inspired with one of these powerful reads, and I’d love to hear about your favorite memoirs in the comments!
