Memoir Reading Challenge 2018

I'm bringing back my Memoir Reading Challenge for 2018. This year, however, I'm doing it differently, as a checklist. To participate, you must read a minimum of five memoirs from any of the categories listed. One book can only count for one category. Re-reads are acceptable.  You do not need a blog to participate. All book formats count. 

Books must be read on or after January 1, 2018 to count.
Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2018.
Books may cross over to other challenges in which you are participating. 

Books must be labeled as memoirs to count. Need some reading ideas?
Here are some lists to get ideas for reading:

I'm in! I have enjoyed your 2017 Memoir Bingo Reading Challenge, and I've read more memoirs than I thought that I would. It definitely stretched me as a reader, so thanks for that!
