Nonfiction November is hosted again this year by Julie (JulzReads), Sarah (Sarah’s Book Shelves), Katie (Doing Dewey), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction) — is a month-long celebration of everything nonfiction. Each week, they’ll be a different prompt and a different host looking at different ideas about reading and loving nonfiction.
This week’s (Nov 2 – 6) discussion is hosted by Leann @ Shelf Aware
Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
I read and listened to 20 books between November 2019 and the end of October 2020.
What was your favourite nonfiction read of the year?
I’ve enjoyed so many nonfiction books over the last twelve months and think it’s going to be a tie between The Salt Path, 9 Secrets to Thriving and Dear Reader. They were such powerful books for me and I can see myself returning to them over and over again.
Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year?
It’s memoirs again this year, and I think it’s because it’s not just facts about a subject, but there’s a personal story in there as well.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
Probably Older and Wider by Jenny Eclair it came along at the right time for me and made me laugh so much. I’ve lent to a good friend and I hope I get it back soon!
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
I’m already enjoying looking back over my non-fiction reads and of course I hope I find some more books to add to my tbr mountain.
