Booksparks Summer Reading Challenge 2015- Kickoff of The Year My Mother Came Back

I am so excited to be part of the Booksparks Summer Reading Challenge 2015!!!!

I function so much better under a schedule, so this is perfect for me.  It also gives me a chance to try some new authors that I hadn't heard of, and to read some of my all-time favorites, like Jane Green.

I got my first books in the mail this week, and the packaging was so cute that it was like receiving a surprise gift!

Isn't that the cutest?  It totally made my day.

I sat down last night to start the book.  I was a little anxious because I normally don't enjoy biographies unless they are really well written.  But by the next time I looked up, I was more than halfway through the book.  It reads so much like fiction that I headed over to Amazon to double check that this was really a memoir.  

The book starts out, "One day, my brilliant, beautiful, complicated mother appeared at my kitchen table, thirty-one years after her death.  
This is a story of mothers and daughters.  My mother, my daughters.  My mother's daughter, my daughters' mothers.  This is the story of a year."

That's all it took to reel me in.  I'm the mother of three daughters and the daughter of a complicated mother.  I feel like this book was written just for me.

What about you?  Do you have any favorite memoirs?
