Hey! I'm looking for some cool memoirs/realistic fiction I could dig into. I just finished "Stone Butch Blues" by Leslie Feinberg and I really enjoyed it. Super open to any suggestions, just hoping to learn n grow my brain a bit as I read :]

I remember reading a trilogy in high school, by the author Kylie Chan


It's called the Dark Heavens trilogy and was about Chinese demons and gods and some dude name Leo (it has been close to 15 years since I read it)

I am writing a fantasy novel series and released the first book last year. I worked on it for over a decade, and am almost done the second book. I've pasted the link to Amazon below.

The stars beneath our feet! It's a really good book about this boy who's brother is killed. It's about how he deals with this. Mostly using legos. It feels so casual and real as you read it, it's really good.

some of my favorite memoirs are:

med head (tw alcoholism, tourettes, drug use, suicide refs)
a list of things that didnt kill me (tw blood, hiv/aids, child trauma, cancer, death, drugs)
three little words (tw abuse, neglect, foster care)

theres a fiction book i like that reads like a memoir called girl in pieces (tw self harm) and if you dont mind a nonfiction lgbtq history book viral goes into the aids crisis and the lives of gay activists during that time :)

Survival the Killing Fields by Haing Ngor. It sounds a bit foreboding, but I picked it up because I had never really heard about the Cambodian genocide. The story chronicles a young Haing, an OBGYN living in the capital city when it gets invaded by communist Khmer Rouge. It's an amazing, sad story about the mans life before, during, and after the war. The author actually received an Academy Award for his acting in the movie based on his life, and was killed about 10 years later in downtown LA during a mugging. The book is so though-provoking, and so interesting, and has a great deal of history behind the entire uprising and made me cry so many times.

Tuesdays with Morrie was a fantastic read. It was about this college professor who was dying from a terminal illness and how he chose to live out his days, and just his overall mindset throughout the process of dying. The book was written by a former student of the professor, and was considered the last "assignment" he ever completed, as he would add more to the book after his meetings with the professor on Tuesdays.

I love Kevin Wilsons books. Some lean a bit toward fiction but most are realistic fiction. They're like Wes Anderson but unmedicated.

catcher in the rye is a classic, not too sure about the memoir part, though. 

notes from the underground, because dostoevsky is always pretty interesting

try the outsider/the stranger by albert camus, it's a pretty fun and quick read if you're looking for something easy. 

frisk by dennis cooper is especially interesting :]
