Actual rating 4.5 stars.
This was a great memoir. If you are a fan of Sara, this book is a gem.
I remember when I got Sarah's album "Little Voice" in my sophomore year of college. I was transformed, moved and inspired. Sara was one of my first delves into the world of indie-pop-folk singer-songwrit...

How do you hype your favorite media (be it book, band, TV show, movie or whatever)? Do you shout from the mountain tops to all who will listen? Do you seek out a sympathetic friend or loved-one and beg their indulgence? Or perhaps it's enough to display your fandom through memorabilia or casual r...

It took me way too long to read this book (but you know what, I can take comfort in the fact that it took Sara several years to write eight essays and only several days for me to read this one because of having a major case of epic book hopping syndrome).
I really enjoyed it - Sara has such a dis...

I bought this in the bookstore on a kind of whim--I always expected I would read it at some point, but not necessarily this soon. Immediately there was some sort of voice in my head saying, "Patti Smith and Carrie Brownstein both put out music memoirs this fall, and you bought Sara Bareilles's me...

I’ve been a fan of Sara Bareilles for years, probably since I first heard Love Song but certainly after I got my hands on a copy of her debut album. Sara instantly rocketed to my top five fa...

With the exception of her anthemic “Brave," I’ve not heard much of Sara Bareilles’ music, so I wasn’t sure whether this autobiography would appeal to me. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised. Bareilles writes from deep in her heart. Her vulnerability makes her likable and relatable, even to someone li...

So I had gotten this song called "Gonna get over you" by Sara Bareilles on iTunes a few years ago. I have played that song to death on my phone. Still love it. I didn't even know she'd written a book. I love her song Brave too. And how had I never heard Gravity?? She starts each chapter with a so...

I've walked away from this book an even bigger fan than before. Absolutely loved it.

The best thing about this book is that because it sounds like you're talking to an old friend over coffee (or whisky, no judgments here), it never sounds preachy. Instead, Sara Bareilles tells you about her very personal experiences that end up resonating with the reader because human experiences...

I loved this book, and I love this woman. Like, for real.
Sounds Like Me somehow caught me completely unaware. I knew about the book, knew I wanted to read it, but had NO IDEA how much it would mean to me when I did. I've been on a bit of an autobiography kick lately for whatever reason, and I've...
