“Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape” by Jenna Miscavige Hill with Lisa Pulitzer

As the niece of Scientology leader David Miscavige, the author grew up at the center of the organization. Now she speaks out about a religion that, for decades, has been the subject of fierce debate worldwide.

“Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders” by Brandi Glanville with Leslie Bruce

She’s the brutally honest member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” known for her dramatic divorce, her barely there clothing and her inability to keep her mouth shut. Glanville tells all in a hilarious memoir.

“Drinking with Men: A Memoir” by Rosie Schaap

Schaap has always loved bars. Starting with her misspent youth in the bar car of a regional railroad, where at 15 she told commuters’ fortunes in exchange for beer, and continuing today as she slings cocktails at a neighborhood joint in Brooklyn, Schaap has come to realize how powerful the fellowship among regular patrons can be.

“I, Rhoda” by Valerie Harper

As Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” Harper, too, turned the world on with her smile. Her story is laced with triumphs and a few transformative obstacles, but she remains upbeat and funny throughout, always confident she’s going to make it after all.

My Share of the Task: A Memoir by General Stanley McChrystal

A candid memoir by the four-star general discusses his early service years, contributions as a commander in Afghanistan, and relationships with heads of state and unpredictable enemies.
