6 books by women that will inspire you to write your own memoir

books by women you should read

I already have the title of my memoir, which will no doubt be a best-selling phenomenon…when I write it (and recover from a heroin addiction I have yet to acquire). I will share it with you if you PROMISE not to take it from me. Ok? It’s going to be called, “Craftastrophe: How not to have a mental breakdown most of the time.” Or something like that. I know, it’s really, really good.

I can’t wait to read it.

But in the meantime, I’d thought I’d share some memoirs, or if you prefer autobiographies, that have affected my life and inspired me. Most of them are funny, all of them are superbly written, and they all make me want to get up and shout, “HERE I AM WORLD! I’M A CRAFTASTROPHE!”

So in no particular order I give you: 6 books by women that will inspire you to write your own memoir!

  • Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling 1 of 1
    I was SO worried when Mindy launched The Mindy Project that it wouldn't be a success. I just felt like there was a lot of pressure on her! Poor thing. This was obviously before I read her book, and now I know how amazing she is. Not only is this book hysterical, it's well-written and super encouraging.
