Non-Fiction November: new to my tbr

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 (JulzReadsyet, 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!

Stories from behind the wallStasiland: 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 badBecause 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 InkBlack 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.

EducationEducated: 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

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.

Bella Figura

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 romanticThe 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…

Born a CrimeBorn 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 ForeversBehind 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…

I work at a public library
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
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…

  1. Thanks for the link! You’ve added some great titles to your list! The Nell Stevens book is both a memoir about the author’s time doing her PhD and a mini biography of a certain time in Elizabeth Gaskell’s life. It was good!
    Nonfiction November is the best. I’m always sad to have it end.

  2. Oh, you have so many wonderful books on your list! I found Born a Crime an excellent memoir. I listened to it as an audiobook and if you can, I would really recommend it as an audio as Noah is a phenomenal narrator.
    Thanks for the shout out. I will be finally writing my post shortly and can not wait mentioning all those wonderful books I want to read thanks to this amazing bookish community.
    Happy reading. 🙂
