5 Mesmerizing Memoirs All Women Should Read

Every once in awhile, I delve into a memoir. I tend to gravitate toward the recollections of women who have had to navigate their way through a male-dominated world. I've gleaned so many life lessons by reading how other women handled themselves in tough situations. I find their stories about their unimaginable struggles, overwhelming heartbreak and disappointing setbacks fascinating. I find myself thinking about what I would do should I ever find myself in similar situations. More than once I've thought, "I would have totally given up."

But these women don't. And I find their bravery, determination and perseverance so encouraging and inspiring.   

Here are five books that make my list of the most mesmerizing memoirs. 

Travels with Myself and Another - Martha Gellhorn

Personal History - Katherine Graham

Madame SecretaryMadeleine Albright

Breaking News: God has a Plan: An Anchorwoman's Journey Through Faith - Harris Faulkner

What about you? Are you into memoirs?

Wherever you are, whatever you're doing  ... Keep It Real.
