Week 3: (November 16-20) – Be The Expert/Ask the Expert/Become the Expert is hosted by Veronica @ The Thousand Book Project
Three ways to join in this week! You can either share 3 or more books on a single topic that you have read and can recommend (be the expert), you can put the call out for good nonfiction on a specific topic that you have been dying to read (ask the expert), or you can create your own list of books on a topic that you’d like to read (become the expert).
Last year I became decently obsessed with female spies and females in general during WWII. I felt a strange affinity with them as the invisible force fighting for their countries.
This year my NonFiction reading was a hodgepodge. I promised myself I would Read with Joy and, after two back to back reading slumps, that seemed the only way forward. This collection stayed in the back of my mind though and I want to continue working through these books and reading the women’s stories. I would be embarrassed to re-cycle my post from last year but, the one thing I have found for certain, my bookish friends don’t judge!

BOOKS I ADDED THIS YEAR
Tell me, please! What nonfiction subject is your area of expertise?
This is a fantastic list! I feel like my nonfiction reading is all over the place – I wouldn’t even be sure how to categorize them 😅 I’d love to do a deep dive on a topic though!
This is an impressive list! I have read good novels on this, but no nonfiction so far.
Here is my post: https://wordsandpeace.com/2021/11/15/nonfiction-november-2021-expert-on-graphic-nonfiction/
There are certainly a lot of books available on this topic and I don’t think anyone will criticise you for revisiting! It’s hard to choose a topic, and I changed mine at the last minute.
Great list! I loved Code Girls, and I read a different book about Virginia Hall (A Woman of No Importance) and a fictional book about Nancy Wake — she is amazing so I think I’d like to read her biography. So many books on your list look good.
