I’m seriously so sad that this year’s Non-Fiction November is coming to an end 😭 I’ve had so much fun doing this tag. I found out about so many amazing blogs and so many awesome books (that’s why I’m writing this post!). I want to say T H A N K YOU SO MUCH to the great bloggers who hosted this year’s Non-Fiction November.
If you’re not following Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), Katie (Doing Dewey), Sarah (Sarah’s Bookshelves), and Julie (JulzReads) yet, you totally should! They’ve done such a great job hosting these prompts and making the blogging community become closer. I really have no words… I hope there’s a non-fiction November next year, and I hope to help if I can!
It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book!
Stasiland: Stories from Behind the Berlin Wall by Anna Funder is one that made its way into my TBR. I was in Berlin in the beginning of the month and loved the history so much. I want to learn more, so I’ll pick this one sometime!
🔎 the blogger… The awesome Nicki (@thesecretlibrary)
Because We Are Bad: OCD and a Girl Lost in Thought by Lily Bailey is a book I’d never heard of but that I’m super happy I did. I’ve never read anything from the perspective of someone with OCD, so this will be interesting.
🔎 the blogger… A new favorite, Katie (@doingdeweydecimal)
Black Ink: Literary Legends on the Peril, Power, and Pleasure of Reading and Writing by Stephanie Stokes Oliver. I can’t wait to read this book and learn more about black literature — something I don’t know well enough!
🔎 the blogger… Again, Katie (@doingdeweydecimal)
Give People Money: How a Universal Basic Income Would End Poverty, Revolutionize Work, and Remake the World by Annie Lowrey & The War on Normal People: The Truth About America’s Disappearing Jobs and Why a Universal Basic Income Is Our Future by Andrew Yang. Oof — long titles! But they seem super interesting.

Educated: A Memoir by Tara Westover is a coming-of-age survival story that handles mental health issues among other things. I love books that discuss mental health issues, so it’s not a surprise that it made it to my TBR.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman is another one I kind of found out about during the Non-Fiction November. I love the author and I’m always up to learn more about mythology.
🔎 the blogger… Again, Vera (@unfilteredtales)
Bella Figura: How to Live, Love, and Eat the Italian Way by Kamin Mohammadi is also a new one on my TBR! I love Italy and can’t wait to go to Tuscany again!
🔎 the blogger… My new favorite blogger Eva(@thepaperbackprincess)
The Victorian and the Romantic: A Memoir, a Love Story, and a Friendship Across Time by Nell Stevens. To be honest, I don’t really know what this one is about… All I know is that the title and the cover both lured me in. And that’s all it took…
🔎 the blogger… Eva (@thepaperbackprincess)
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah is a book I’ve been motivated to read by Non-Fiction November. It sounds so interesting and I can’t wait to get to it, hopefully soon!
🔎 the blogger… An amazing blogger you need to follow Ayunda (@ayundabhuwana)
Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity by Katherine Boo just came to my attention! It’s the struggle of families to make a living in one of the most innequal places in the world. Sounds heartbreaking…
🔎 the blogger… Jaymi (@orangecountyreaders)
I Work at a Public Library by Gina Sheridan is an obvious addition to my TBR. I love libraries, I’ve always wanted to know what it would be like to work there, and I love reading about books. So yeah… Obvious!
🔎 the blogger… Mary (@silverbuttonbooks)
A Mountain of Crumbs by Elena Gorokhova tells the story of a girl growing up in Leningrad in the 1960s. It seems to be about her personal life and the political climate of the time, which is awesome…
