I don't read a lot of biographies, but this one stood out this year.

Becoming by Michelle Obama was fantastic.
What Happened by Hillary Clinton was very interesting in parts. Of course there was also a lot of anger, but you could also see her intelligence at work.

To be fair, and informed, I would also like to read Bernie Sanders's memoir, Our Revolution, but haven't yet. I read the kindle sample, which was an interesting account of his time as mayor of Burlington, VT, but didn't get to his time in the Senate or the 2016 election.

The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates was fantastic too.

I read several in 2019 that I thought were really good but Heavy: An American Memoir by Kiese Laymon stood out. Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover was a close second.

Educated and Becoming are on my read lists -maybe next year. Too many books, too little time!

I also read Educated and thought it was excellent, but I didn't mark down the date and don't remember whether it was 2018 or 2019 when I read it.
