50/50 Friday - Favorite/Least Favorite Memoir

What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. I'll have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let me know!

Topic for the Week
Favorite/Least Favorite Memoir

Now I don't read a lot of memoirs and I'm trying to change that but I do have two to share with you today. I will give you the memoir that ran me away from reading anymore till I found the blog Keep the Wisdom. Which is a great blog by the way! Check it out. So that being said, I've started to read more. My goal is one a month.

Anyway, enough of this, let's just jump into this, shall we?

Least Favorite 
I don't know if I wrote a review for this one, I was too scared to post negative things at this time. Anyway, I do remember thinking how 'uppity' the book came off to me. Like she thought she was better than everyone else and it turned me off big time. 

I loved how I could relate to Signe and I enjoyed watching her travel and come to terms with things. It was magical and even at time had me laughing while other times it hit me right in the feels. 

Topic for Next Week

  1. I have been following Judy's blog Keep the Wisdom for quite a while. I love her book reviews!

    Here's a long to my 50/50 Friday post for this week: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2019/07/5050-friday-most-favoriteleast-memoir.html

  2. I don't read memoirs but it doesn't surprise me that a celebrity would think or sound like they are better than everyone else. Celebrities tend to have big egos.

  3. Thanks for the shout out, Carrie! Here is another great one, which I also mentioned on Captivated Reader: The Chronology of Water by Lydia Yuknavitch.

    1. You're welcome! Well now I've got another memoir to add to my TBR!

  4. I also don't read many memoirs and I'm hoping to change that in the coming years. Recently, I've been getting more and more into nonfiction (historical and psychological stuff) so I'm hoping that'll be a bit of a bridge! One of my IRL friends is REALLY into memoirs so I have a feeling I'll be well prepped with recommendations :)
