In between writing and reading romance, I enjoy sitting down with a biography or autobiography. However, I'm fairly diverse in what kind biographical story I read. From sportsman to celebrities, to world leaders or someone who has made an amazing impact on the world to the very ordinary - I'll pick up books that are recommended by others or simply land on my desk or kindle.
Here are some I've read that I enjoyed (This is a fairly diverse list)
Parky - by Michael Parkinson. I really enjoyed this tale of his own life, plus details of some of his most famous (and infamous) interviews.
War Horse - the story of footballer Shane Webcke. Now, I am a diehard Broncos (Rugby League) fan. (Or Broncos tragic as my husband likes to call me) which may have something to do with the hat, scarf and T-shirt amongst other things I own with my team on them. But I found this read to be more that a book about sport.
Loving Amy: A Mother's Story. This is the tale of the short and sometimes tragic life of Amy Winehouse. A tale of loss and laughter and grief and joy, told by her mother.
Michelle Obama: A Life. I loved this one. It was a fabulous depiction of this iconic woman. This one is a re-read for me.
Do you have a favorite biography or auto-biography?
I would love to hear if there are any I should be downloading to my kindle.
