Welcome to the final week of Nonfiction November, a month-long celebration of nonfiction I’m co-hosting with Leslie of Regular Rumination! Throughout the month, we’ve been reading and writing about nonfiction, and encouraging other readers to join us through a series of post topics.
I’m feeling a little bummed this is the last week of the month. It’s been incredibly fun to connect with some new bloggers and check out the posts everyone has been writing. This week we’re asking participants to reflect back on the month a bit and give a boost to some new nonfiction you’re excited about:
New to My TBR: What nonfiction have you added to your toppling TBR pile this month? Be sure to credit which bloggers you heard about titles from (if you can remember)!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve added a bunch of books to various wishlists. I tried to pare it down to just a few of my favorites, but know that there are many more out there:
- Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans by Dan Baum via Stacy at Stacyverb
- At Least You’re in Tuscany by Jennifer Criswell via Monika at A Lovely Bookshelf On the Wall
- Death’s Acre: Inside the Legendary Forensic Lab, the Body Farm, Where the Dead Do Tell Tales by Dr. Bill Bass via Andi at Estella’s Revenge
- The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court by Jeffrey Toobin via Melissa at Avid Reader’s Musings (technically I already own this one, but reading about it made it move up on my TBR)
- The Secret Lives of Codebreakers by Sinclair McKay via Karen at Candid Diversions (I am a SUCKER for books on codebreaking)
- Perv: The Sexual Deviant in All of Us by Jesse Bering via Feminist Texan Reads
- And the Band Played On by Randy Shilts via Melissa at melissafirman.com
Before we get to the Mr. Linky, a couple of housekeeping notes:
- I’m hosting this week, so add your posts to the Mr. Linky below and I’ll be back with a wrap-up of sorts at the end of the week (maybe Saturday because of the holiday).
- If you’re chatting about nonfiction on Twitter, use the hashtag #nonficnov.
- THANK YOU to everyone who has participated. I haven’t talked to Leslie yet, but I think this is something we would like to host again next year. If you have any feedback or suggestions, please do let us know.
