lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

With or Without You - Domenica Ruta I think it's just me, that I am sick of memoirs, and I need to back off reading them. After reading Her and Chanel Bonfire, I really don't care to hear anymore about messed up childhoods and the women who rose above them. I didn't feel like this memoir took me anywhere. I was just reading the author's memories and they were okay, a little shocking, but not too bad. I didn't feel like she was on any part of a journey, or that she really cared to be on one. It was like she was writing down her history for her future generations, very vague and to the point, and not what I admire in a good memoir.
