This week of introductions and a look back at our personal year in nonfiction is hosted by JulzReads. My nonfiction reading this year has been pretty sparse, unfortunately! I've read four memoirs (even though I'm not normally crazy about this particular sub-genre).
I chose these particular memoirs mostly because of the person behind the book, either they personally or their story interested me in some way. I've had mixed reactions to them, but if I had to recommend one, it would be Anna Kendrick's book. She's funny and relatable, and I enjoyed this one even more than I expected.
I also listened to my first audiobook, comedian Jim Gaffigan's Food: A Love Story. If you've never heard Gaffigan's bits on Hot Pockets, go listen and I dare you not to bust out laughing.
I wanted to participate in Nonfiction November to broaden my horizons a bit when it comes to this genre. I gravitate towards celebrity memoirs or certain historical events, and I want to get some recommendations from the book blog community! I'm not even totally sure what I'm looking for, I just know there's so much out there that I'm missing! I also want to use this month to commit myself to reading at least two nonfiction books in the coming weeks. High priorities for me are:
What are some of your favorite nonfiction reads? Are you into memoirs, history, true crime?
