Nonfiction November | Nonfiction Wishlist

Throughout the month of November I'm taking part in the bookish event of Nonfiction November - a month dedicated to, and encouraging the reading of, nonfiction titles.

There are a number of content creators who host events surrounding this initiative to promote nonfiction in the month of November, and I'm combining (& taking part in) two. One of which is hosted on YouTube by booktuber abookolive - I have compiled my TBR using her challenges. Secondly, I'm taking part in an event hosted here in the book blogging community by five wonderful bloggers - Katie at Doing DeweyRennie at What's Nonfiction?Julie at JulzReadsKim at Sophisticated Dorkiness and Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves. Each week I'll be sharing a new post that relates to the topic of nonfiction books, with post prompts being provided by those five bloggers I've mentioned above.

New to my TBR hosted by Katie at Doing Dewey

After what has been an amazing month of reading nonfiction & connecting with other readers of nonfiction, November is now drawing to a close... And I have a list as long as my arm (& then some!) of new to me nonfiction titles I'm keen to check out. 

Today I'm sharing with you 10 books I have discovered this month through #NonficNov, that I hope to get to sooner rather than later. Initially I tried to keep track of who the titles came from, but as the list grew that got harder to keep track of. So, if you've mentioned any of the titles below this month - thank you!! 

Listed in no particular order, and all titles will take you to Goodreads

Quite an eclectic mix of titles - eclectic is a great description for my reading as a whole though, both fiction & nonfiction! I think it'll be interesting to see if I've gotten to any of these titles by time Nonfiction November rolls around next.

    1. I'm so keen to read that one - glad to hear you enjoyed it!

  2. Just Mercy is a book that must be read...but I expect it will be a tough read.
    I'm putting this one on my 'reserve' list!
    I choose 2 of your 'walking' book suggestions: Silence (E. Kagge) and Ursula Martin's book "One Woman Walks Wales". It will be fun to compare books about woman's physical and mental challenges while walking. (C. Strayed's Wild and O. Laing's To the River)
    Thanks for all your #NonFicNov' posts!

    1. I hope you enjoy those two titles that I recommended - I am also keen to read Wild, and agree it will be interesting to compare the journeys challenges.

      Thank you!

  3. I read The Stranger in the Woods last year and really liked it. It was one of my favorite books of the year. I hope you enjoy all these!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. The Library Book is on many lists.
    My post is here: https://wordsandpeace.com/2018/11/28/nonfiction-november-2018-new-on-my-tbr/

    1. YES - I saw The Library Book so many times throughout #NonficNov... I thought I just have to pick that one up.

      Thanks for sharing!

  5. The Stranger in the Woods and Just Mercy are on my tbr list too. I am thankful for Nonfiction November reminding me each year how much I enjoy nonfiction and that I should try to read more of it!

    1. Both of them sound like really interesting reads. Happy to hear you've been enjoying some nonfiction... I think we often sideline it in favour of fictional reads, but definitely some good to be found in picking up nonfiction titles now and again.
