Mom Loves Reading (& Listening to) Memoirs

As a mother of 5, (ok, 3 live on their own, but the 2 at home are autistic), I don't always have time to sit & relax with a physical book like I would love to. Thank goodness (& Librofm) that I became a HUGE fan of audiobooks in early 2019 & now I am practically listening to an entire book every day while doing all my usual daily activities like chores, shopping, driving, exercising & even showering. Memoirs are my favorite type of audiobooks, especially when they are narrated by the author. These are some of my favorites!

Hunger

A Memoir of (My) Body
By Roxane Gay
Narrated by Roxane Gay /  5 hours 57 minutes

Hunger

“Man oh man. Roxane Gay never fails to disappoint, even if she might disagree. This is a powerful, raw memoir, narrated by the author. Her truth is so relatable, and even when it’s not, Gay’s writing is empathetic. This audiobook was so engrossing, I actively looked for excuses to step away from what I was doing and listen to it. I highly recommend listening to or reading this book—for EVERYONE. This will challenge how you look at fat people, and women especially, and if you’re like me, how you look at yourself. Do yourself a favor and read this book.”

We're Going to Need More Wine

Stories That Are Funny, Complicated, and True
By Gabrielle Union
Narrated by Gabrielle Union /  7 hours 48 minutes

We're Going to Need More Wine

“I know what this book looks like, and it's true that it's a '90s celebrity's memoir. But the other parts of this book are so remarkable that to limit its description to that would be an injustice. Gabrielle Union is an honest writer and cultural critic. I'm ashamed I didn't know this until now. Her reflections on race, gender, and authenticity in an industry that values anything but are refreshing and ring true. These are the portions of the book that really sparkle on the page. Writer to reader, friend to friend, Union simply shares some of her stories, and I was glad to be a part.”

Inside Out

A Memoir
By Demi Moore
Narrated by Demi Moore /  6 hours 31 minutes

Inside Out

“Demi Moore's memoir is riveting. She begins the book describing her desperately sad childhood. Both parents suffer from alcoholism and the demons that accompany the disease. Her father commits suicide in his thirties. As a result, Demi enters into many failed romances with men who are cut from the same cloth as her father. Demi candidly describes her break into show business and the many famous people that she meets along the way. She covers her own substance abuse issues with raw candor. Demi does not miss a beat in her descriptions of both high profile marriages. Listening to Demi's words in her own voice was a special treat. It is the story of hard work and resilience. I highly recommend it.”

“I adore our former president and I miss him. Yet I cannot help but be ecstatic that Michelle is coming out with a book about her own life so that I can learn more about this powerful, intelligent, and singularly awesome woman. Barack would be the first to say that his wife is a superstar, and I can’t wait to get my hands on Becoming to read about her in her own words.”

The Witches Are Coming

By Lindy West
Narrated by Lindy West /  6 hours 27 minutes

The Witches Are Coming

“ I struggle to write a review of Lindy West's work without resorting to simplistic three syllable sentences like "she's awesome," or, "she's the best." Maybe it's because she makes it look so very easy. She says everything I'm always thinking: about feminism, about politics, about our image-obsessed culture. And she does it with irrefutable logic, dazzling sentences, and an utterly fierce and funny sensibility. She's...(sigh) perfect.”

In Pieces

By Sally Field
Narrated by Sally Field /  10 hours 41 minutes

In Pieces

“I have watched Sally Field ever since her early days as the Flying Nun. I thought I knew Sally Field, but her memoir, In Pieces, reveals a Sally Field I didn’t know. She writes bravely and eloquently about her struggles growing up and making her way in Hollywood. Field holds nothing back, and that only elevates her, in my opinion. This isn’t just another celebrity memoir; it’s a clear-eyed look at an industry and a life beset by challenges. Field emerges as likeable, strong, and inspiring—an altogether remarkable woman.”
