Val, you can add these books yourself by voting for them. At the top of the page under the list title you will see a tab "add books to this list" and you can add your votes there.


message 5: by Bookish (new)

Bookish A Million Little Pieces and My Friend Leonard are both fiction, although the first is an excellent book


message 6: by Sara (new)

Sara I'm amazed by the number of these books that I have read. I went through a memoir phase, and clearly leaded toward strange and twisted ones.


message 7: by Megs (new)

Megs Russell The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and She's Come Undone by Wally Lamb are both fiction


message 8: by Hoyadaisy (new)

Hoyadaisy So like. Thank you list maker. I love what I call "extreme memoir," which seems two be what you call "strange and twisted." This gives me so reasons to push the "to read" button.


message 9: by Kristen (new)

Kristen Cummings White Oleander by Janet Fitch is a novel, not a memoir.


message 10: by Elyse (last edited Nov 12, 2017 01:55PM) (new)

Elyse Removed "Into the Wild" #38. It is a biography - not a memoir. Also removed White Oleander #89 because it's fiction.
