Although I love YA fantasy the most, I find myself returning to memoirs often.
I found my love for memoirs in middle school when we were, ironically, forced to choose one and write a review over it. I read a memoir written by a woman spy, but I cannot remember the title. However, I’ve returned to the biographies/memoir section of my local Barnes & Noble ever since.
The Orchard by Theresa Weir is my recent find.
Growing up poor, Theresa Weir works in her uncle’s bar where she meets Adrian Curtis. The two immediately begin dating, and three months later, they marry. Theresa moves to Adrian’s cursed farm, realizing his life is much more dangerous than she expected while also falling more in love with Adrian every moment.
This is a beautiful tale written with delicate compassion and painstaking truth.
So check it out here, and let me know what you think.
P.S Based on all of your suggestions, I’ll be checking out ‘Divergent’ as soon as I beat the flu (Ick)
