If you're not familiar with our reading group, it's called Page Turners, and each month, we pick a theme, and you get to choose what you want to read and recommend books for other people to read! You can learn more about it here.

Which brings us to our April theme: Memoirs!

But what exactly is the difference between a memoir and an autobiography? Well, a memoir is a form of an autobiography that's usually about specific personal experiences from the author. An autobiography covers a person's life from beginning to end. For this month's challenge, we'll be tackling memoirs specifically.

Maybe you think Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling is hilariously relatable.

Crown Publishing

Get it from Amazon for $7.99, Barnes and Noble for $9.27, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Or perhaps you read “Night” by Elie Wiesel in high school and it always stuck with you because of Elie’s personal and raw account of the Holocaust.

Hill & Wang/Oprah Book Club

Get it from Amazon for $5.90, Barnes and Noble for $6.27, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Maybe Eat, Pray, Love is your favorite book of all time because you've always wanted to take your own solo trip around the world.

Penguin

Get it from Amazon for $9.95, Barnes and Noble for $11.44, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Or maybe you enjoy Carrie Fisher's books, such as The Princess Diarist, because you're obsessed with her snappy and sarcastic humor.
