I didn’t read that much non-fiction this year, but now it’s full speed ahead! With each passing year, I feel like I’m drawn more and more to non-fiction – I hope this isn’t a sign that I’m getting bored of magic! (Non-fiction is magical in its own way though, isn’t it?) So it’s Nonfiction November (#nonficnov) again, the month that makes me doubt my spelling/hyphenation of “non-fiction”, the month when I get to read more books off of my to-read pile, and the month when I go crazy trying to juggle two genres at once ahhhhh.
Our co-hosts, Leslie, Kim, Becca, and Katie have added some new discussion topics this time, so I’m excited to discuss non-traditional nonfiction and participate in book pairings (if I can think of one)! My nonfiction favorites of 2015 so far are NurtureShock, Bossypants, and How to Raise the Perfect Dog. There are still two months left though, so I’m anticipating more fun reads coming up. 😀
What I want to read more of: Memoirs! I’ve recently gained a new appreciation for them, despite having started with some that I didn’t really like. In the past, I wasn’t a big fan of the first-person narrative because that required putting myself in someone else’s shoes, and I just couldn’t relate.
My non-fiction reading pile for this month is one that includes books for yet another reading challenge, as well as books that’s been on my to-read list for wayyy too long. If you can make out the titles and have read any of these already, let me know if you liked them or not!
What nonfiction books are you looking forward to reading this month?
