#BookBingo – Round 17

I have to take what I can get with this category as memoirs really aren’t my cup of tea! Reading them puts the ‘challenge’ into reading challenge.

Memoir about a non-famous person:

Diving into Glass by Caro Llewellyn

Fans of memoirs will think this is an incredible book; in many ways it is. Caro Llewellyn certainly writes well, and for the most part, there is a lack of the type of self-indulgence ever present in memoirs. She accepts responsibility for her own actions, she doesn’t demonise her parents, nor does she wallow – all factors I appreciated. I just really wish there had been more of her MS journey through to the present day and less of everything else.

For 2019, I’m teaming up with Mrs B’s Book Reviews and The Book Muse for an even bigger, and more challenging book bingo. We’d love to have you join us. Every second Saturday throughout 2019, we’ll post our latest round. We invite you to join in at any stage, just pop the link to your bingo posts into the comments section of our bingo posts each fortnight so we can visit you. If you’re not a blogger, feel free to just write your book titles and thoughts on the books into the comments section each fortnight, and tag us on social media if you are playing along that way.

  1. I’m not a big fan of memoirs either but this sounds good. I wonder with some memoirs, how much is truth and how much is simply trying to write a good story.

  3. Oh gosh, I adore memoirs/autobiographies I find them fascinating and I love learning about another person’s life. Two remarkable memoirs I’ve recently read were A.B. Facey’s A Fortunate Life and Ray Martin’s Stories of My Life, both were incredible and extremely interesting. Diving into Glass sounds good I’m adding it to my TBR list.
    My unofficial play along I ticked off the ‘romance’ square and read Play by Kylie Scott.
