Sure, I'll Join Your Cult

Hm. This one was sort of an odd read. It’s definitely a personal memoir, and I appreciate Maria’s frank candidness with readers about her experience and trials… and no doubt there are some funny licks as we read — she is a comedian. But there were several moments in reading where I found myself hoping that she finds hope and a new path forward. I guess that is to say, there were parts of the book that are just sort of… depressing. And sure, real life can be that way sometimes. And sure, the point of an author’s autobiography (or at least memoir) is to be honest. But this one just didn’t resonate with me too much in those moments. 🤷‍♂️
