I haven’t read many, but one that I really enjoyed was Finding Fish: The Autobiography of Antwonne Fischer. Made into a movie starting Denzel Washington.
On my tbr list!!
Too many to count for me but I can’t remember what my favorites are at the moment
Educated, by Tara Westover.
‘Tis by Frank McCourt The Glass Castle by Jeanette walls
The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius
“Between the Word and Me” by Ta-Nehisi Coates. This book convinced me that institutionalized racism still exist inside the US.
Look up Dave Pelzer, Frank McCourt and Walter Anderson-these are great for me! (These are authors’ name btw)
Marcus Aurelius “Meditations”, always returning to me.
The Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy
Naked by David Sedaris
Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir by Lauren Slater
Sorry, I edited the comment to add more after you saw it!
Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery by Scott Kelly. An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield (really cool reading those two close together). Failure Is Not An Option by Gene Kranz (the guy who as the Flight Director for, among other things, the first moon landing and when Apollo 13 exploded).
