It's time for one of my favorite blogging events of the year - Nonfiction November! Julie from Julz Reads is hosting the first week, which is a look back at our year of nonfiction.
My goal this year was to read at least 12 nonfiction books - so far I've read 15, and of course I have plenty lined up for this month! It's been a bit of a mixed bag in terms of enjoyment, but I've had luck with a couple topics - food and the outdoors (and I'll be offering my recommendations on this topic in a couple weeks!).
These three books were all quite different but wonderful in their own way!
Dead Mountain by Donnie Eichar - this book was terrifying, and fascinating, and just all-around incredible. I couldn't stop talking about it after I finished it!
I also have to mention one amazing audiobook, Southern Lady Code by Helen Ellis. Ellis has put together a series of essays of her experiences as a southern woman living in New York City. While it doesn't always work when an author reads their own book, Ellis is the perfect narrator and she just added so much to her essays.
As always, what I hope to get out of Nonfiction November is more titles to add to my TBR! There are so many nonfiction books out there that I just don't know about, and I want to make it an even bigger part of my reading. I have a pretty ambitious TBR set for this month - I just picked up seven books from the library this weekend, and I already had a couple on my shelves I wanted to read! Here are just a few I really want to get to:
What will you be reading this November?
