Nonfiction November: My Year in NonFiction

I am woefully behind in participating in nonfiction November but today I turn it all around! Actually, I have been reading non-fiction all month, I have just been terrible about sharing my books and blogging my thoughts.

The first assignment is hosted by Sophisticated Dorkiness and is to look back over your year in nonfiction. I made nonfiction a priority for the first time this year and featured a number of wonderful books on my Non-Fiction Fridays. Below, you can see the covers of nearly all the books I read.


What was your favorite non-fiction read this year?

I would have to say Canada by Mike Myers was my favorite. I listened to the audiobook, which was read by the author, and was fascinated. If you follow me you will know that I have an enormous crush on Canada. I read this when I returned from my first trip through Canada and it both fed my crush and deepened my interest.


Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more than others this year?

This year has absolutely been full of autobiographical memoirs and humorous books. I think everyone needed more things to laugh about in 2018.  I have also, as you can see above, been deep into some weird science books.


What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?

Above all others I recommend The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum. It reads like a procedural crime novel and is the gateway drug to nonfiction.

 

 

 


What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?

Truthfully, I want the opportunity to prioritize nonfiction in my book selection and read about other people’s love of nonfiction!


Tell me, please!

How do you feel about nonfiction?

  1. So many good ones here! I’m so glad to hear you recommend Poisoner’s handbook so highly, I bought that one awhile back and then never could get in the mood to read it. But I think “gateway drug to nonfiction” is pretty much the best endorsement I can imagine. I’m so intrigued by Black Cats and Evil Eyes!

    1. I can absolutely see not wanting to sit down and read about sneaky little poisons – you must be in the mood! But, it truly is my favorite. Black Cats and Evil Eyes is a hoot too. Between the two books you will be a fascinating (albeit depressing) tidbit sharer at parties.
