When it comes to memoirs written by women, this is perhaps the be-all-end-all that will be read for generations to come.

From growing up with famous parents to Star Wars and everywhere in between, Fisher’s first memoir is definitely one of a kind, just like she was.
Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir – Jenny Lawson
Affectionately known as “The Bloggess,” Lawson has generated a loyal following online thanks to her very unique everyday life and equally unique childhood, which is chronicled in Let’s Pretend… Of her book, she wrote, “You should probably go buy it right now, because it’s filled with awesomeness. And cocaine. But only if you hollow it out and fill it with your own cocaine. I’m not buying you cocaine. Because I love you.”
Wild – Cheryl Strayed
Yes…we know it was adapted into a movie, but if you’re going through some stuff, you HAVE to read Wild.
