Nonfiction November 2018: Fiction/Nonfiction Book Pairings


This week of Nonfiction November is hosted by Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves and focuses on fiction/nonfiction book pairings.  I loved this week during last year's event and it really inspired me in my blogging this year.  I've been making a move towards more mini-reviews and I especially like when I can come up with a theme for the books I'm reviewing; fiction/nonfiction pairings went along with this so well!  Here are the pairings I've done:

  1. Really good job of pairing these up. I've read a couple of them and see some I still need to read. I tried the Girls of Atomic City but couldn't get through it. I'll have to try again.

  3. Haha! The Atomic Girls really is a good pairing..right down to the indistinguishable names!

    And I want to check out the book you paired with Bachelor Nation! Bach Nation made my list too - but with different fiction pairings.

    1. Right?? Could those titles be any more similar??

      That's so fun that we both did a pairing with Bachelor Nation!

  4. Fun pairings, Angela. I keep meaning to get to The Girls of Atomic City. I loved The Code Girls last fall.

  5. I want to read both of those royal books. They’re on my TBR list. I’d probably like the atomic city and space books, too.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  10. Oooh! I love these pairings. I read and loved Stay Sweet. Going to have to check out your pairing for that one for sure. I read both My Lady Jane and Princesses Behaving Badly and think that pairing is spot on!

  12. Great pairs! I used Bachelor Nation as well, but with a different fiction choice (Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld).
    Princesses Behaving Badly looks good.

  13. This is pretty great idea! I love Sweet Spot with Stay Sweet and My Lady Jane with Princesses Behaving Badly. I find The Girls of Atomic City interesting, I love US History, I find it so interesting.

    Hope you have a lovely week ahead. 💋 xoxo
