To celebrate the fall reading trend of compelling memoir releases, I am participating in the The Magic of Memoir Blog Tour hosted by The Magic of Memoir anthology featuring Elizabeth Gilbert, Mary Karr and more! BookSparks will have a two-month lineup to dive into. Each week I will showcase this fall’s hottest memoirs including Hungry Heart by Jennifer Weiner, Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick, and You Can’t Touch My Hair by Phoebe Robinson!
Stepmother by Marianne Lile
Stepmother tells the story of Marianne Lile, who met a man, fell in love, got married, and arrived home from the honeymoon with a new label: stepmom. It was a role she initially embraced—but she quickly discovered she was alone in a difficult situation, with no handbook and no mentor. Here, Lile describes the complexities of the stepmom position, in a family and in the community, and shares her experience wearing a tag that is often misunderstood and weighed down by the numerous myths in society.
