Start Here

Welcome to Confessions of a Memoir Addict! I am so glad you’ve landed on this page.

My name is Carrie Faith Taylor and I’m a memoir addict. While I have always loved reading, I started to find myself increasingly drawn to the true stories of people who have lived through extraordinary things. I still enjoy fiction, but reading a story when I know it’s true is so much more interesting.

About Me

Outside of reading, I am seeking ordination into the Church of the Nazarene and working toward fulfilling my educational requirements to become a hospice chaplain. I am the lead pastor of Warsaw Church of the Nazarene, a small church in Ohio.

I have been married for over eight years to my husband, Grant. We enjoy shopping and going to the movies together (although he is more of a shopper than I am). We have no children or pets, although we do have plans to add a cat to our family soon.

While reading is one of my biggest passions, I also enjoy anything artistic. I have been knitting since I was eleven. There was a time I wouldn’t go anywhere without my knitting needles. To this day, I always have at least one project going. I have also added to my crafty hobbies crochet (thanks to Grant), scrapbooking, and cross stitch. If it’s creative, I have either tried it or want to try it.

About the Blog

Confessions of a Memoir Addict is not like a traditional book review blog. In fact, I am very hesitant to even use the word “review,” since I like to think about my posts as my public journey through the books I read.

Every Friday, I will bring a reflection and review on a memoir or biography that I have read. I may occasionally add more posts, but I have found that reading one memoir a week is a pace that is manageable for me.

Although my exact schedule is not published, new reviews will come out each Friday. You can follow me on Facebook at @ConfessionsofaMemoirAddict to get the latest news. I will also post what I am reading, so you may choose to read along with me before the week’s post is published.

Thank you again for being here. I hope you enjoy what you find. Happy reading!
