The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee. Great insight into the author of my all time favorite book, To Kill A Mockingbird. Marja Mills gives glimpses into Nelle Harper Lee's mannerisms, quirks and philosophies through small vignettes and gestures rather than grand plays. I fell in love with Nelle Harper and her wonderful older sister, Alice.

Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee. Though not an authorized "portrait", the author assures us that he has done diligent research. This was a very detailed history of Nelle Harper Lee's younger life, her college days and young adulthood, life as an instant success and Pulitzer winning author, her research help to Truman Capote on his book In Cold Blood, and so much more. Loved the book.

Fantastic biography of Julia Child. Loved it!

With or Without You. Memoir of a gal raised by a drug addicted, alcoholic mother who wanted the same life for her daughter. Hard to accept but a great read.

Carol King... The sound of the 70's, making music better and changing the game for all the ladies who have since followed her...

The Glass Castle <3 One of my favorite books of all time. Definitely the best (true) memoir I have ever read.

Jenny Lawson (@thebloggess) is hilarious and reading her book will make your boobs bigger and your stomach flatter. Okay, maybe not the boob thing, but your abs will get a workout from laughing so much. Read it!

Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir by Kelle Hampton -- Hampton recounts her first year of life with her daughter born with Down syndrome.
