Ruth Reichl makes me DEEPLY hungry no matter what book of hers I read. She is a brilliant writer and I'd love more food writing/memoirs like this in my inbox! #MSWL

I thought this would be a light memoir about wine and working in the restaurant industry... instead it was a visceral memoir about Victoria's life and her time in the restaurant industry... the horrors and joys of it. I couldn't put it down. #MSWL restaurant-industry memoirs!

Been reading a lot of my old Thoroughbred books lately... and they reminded me that I would LOVE a memoir from a female jockey! #MSWL

This was a lovely, lyrical nature memoir about bees and life in general and I loved it! Now I want to keep bees in my backyard too! #MSWL

My husband went to school for wildlife biology, studying birds of prey and since then I've been obsessed with raptors and owls of all kinds! This was a gripping, icy memoir about finding and saving these beautiful creatures! The perfect nature memoir. #MSWL

I read All You Can Ever Know in one long afternoon and like everyone else, I adored it. It's a wonderful memoir about adoption and race and family and should be required reading for everyone. #MSWL more memoirs like this!

Catherine Cho’s memoir about her time with postpartum psychosis is achingly beautiful. It delves into the intricacies of motherhood and mental health and deals beautifully and empathetically with an incredibly difficult topic. Please send me books like this! #MSWL

A lovely and moving memoir about husband and wife walking the difficult South West coast path (in the UK) after becoming homeless and finding out the husband has a terminal illness. A gripping look into illness, homelessness, grief, and the beauty and brutality of nature. #MSWL

Honestly, this is a devastating read, about the death of Jayson’s young daughter. It’s an astonishing memoir about grief and hope and what it is to live after a great loss. Highly recommend if you can handle the subject matter. #MSWL
