Best Memoir & Autobiography Books of 2015

Goodreads choice awards for best memoir & autobiography books of 2015.

From time to time I enjoy reading a good memoir or autobiography book. I like getting a look into someone’s life and see what makes them the way they are. If I see something on television that is based on real life I always look it up to see if there is a book based on it. Books are always better than the movie.

Here is a list of previous genres:
