I feel the same way about this final week of NonFiction November as I do the last week of the calendar year – enthusiastic about what comes next. NonFiction November is absolutely the event that brought nonfiction reading into my life and every year I find new bloggers to follow and new books I cannot wait to read. So, in no particular order, here are the books I found while bopping around this month and all the fabulous places I found them! Thank you to Katie @ Dewing Dewey for hosting this final week of the event!
The Meaning of Mariah Carey from The Paperback Princess. I love a good memoir and Eva’s reviews of this book have me convinced that I need to check out Mariah’s story.
ReWild Yourself from LibroFullTime. This may not be “re” wilding for me but I do need a little more wild in my life.
Books about Women in the World from Melissa @ MelissaFirman
Why We Can’t Sleep by Ada Calhoun from Leann @ Shelf-Aware. Anyone that reads my posts knows that I suffer from chronic insomnia – its when I read the bulk of my books! I would love to know why I can’t sleep.
Paperback Crush: The Totally Radical History of ’80s and ’90s Teen Fiction by Gabrielle Moss from Claire @ Claire Has a Life. I love middle grade and YA books and would love to see the history of teen fiction.
Every single book that Happiest When Reading read in 2020. Especially all those gorgeous memoirs!
Off the Clock: Feel Less Busy While Getting More Done by Laura Vanderkam from Deb @ The Book Stop. I banned the word “busy” from my vocabulary a few years ago when I had an acquaintance who proclaimed loudly and frequently that she was just so “busy busy busy” as if that was something admirable. I love doing a lot of things and a variety of things but I could probably use some organizational help in creating some balance in my life.
They Called Us Enemy by George Takei also from Deb @ The Book Stop. If you don’t follow George on Twitter you should – he is insightful and funny. I feel like I owe it to him to learn his history in exchange for the joy he brings my twitter feed.
1000+ Little Things Happy Successful People do Differently by Marc and Angel Chernoff from Lexlingua. I just love these kinds of books.
The Big Red Train Ride by Eric Newby from Bitter Tea and Mystery. I always think of myself as someone who would love a gloriously long train ride but between the pandemic and my motion sickness I would probably make a better armchair traveller. This book takes a train ride across the USSR, something I will probably never get to do.
Around the World in 80 Trees by Jonathan Drori from Still Life, With Cracker Crumbs. I love this blogger for her passion for nature. Nature is something that I strongly admire that seems to hate me back. I am allergic to….all of it. I’m one of those people who celebrates winter not for the seasonal celebrations by for the cessation of my seasonal allergies! Still, I want to be more connected with nature and I love the idea of this book featuring trees from around the world.
On the Horizon, WWII Reflections by Lois Lowry from Vidya @ The Lady in Reads Writes. This book ticks all of my nonfiction boxes, women in WWII and middle grade.
Everything on Library of Clean Reads 2020 list. I love all the habit books and those focused on neuroplasticity!
488 Rules for Life by Kitty Flanagan from Brona’s Books. This book looks like a hilarious take on the advice book genre from an Australian author.
The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha from Jen @ The Introverted Reader. I love the idea of a book listing all the wonderful awesome things out in the world.
And, finally, everything Eva @ The Paperback Princess read this past year. Those books all look glorious!
Tell me, please! Did you participate in NonFiction November? If so, what did you find?
