    Last year I also made a long list for my TBR at the end of Nonfiction November. This year I used last year’s list to request books. It worked out very well. Your list is excellent. It’s always good to have lots of possibilities. Not everything works out as a good book.

    Oh my gosh, you got SO many good ones! I’m thrilled I could give you a bunch of recommendations too 🙂 I feel like I need to go through your list more closely because I missed a bunch of these. I can emphatically second the recommendations for After the Eclipse, Bad Blood,The Great Pretender, and Sound of a Wild Snail Eating – I read that one almost in one sitting this past week and it was so beautiful.

    Wow Shelleyrae! You really did add a lot of books to your TBR and 15 non-fictions read during the event is amazing. Well done and I hope you enjoy all your upcoming non-fiction reads too. 😀

    Wow! what a collection of titles. You wouldn’t happen to know the title of the fictionalized account of Cargo of Women?

    You’ve got a great selection of books here – I missed some of these when they were posted this month so I’m going to catch up now. Thanks so much to linking to three of the books I wrote about, I hope you enjoy reading those books when you get to them.

    I just bought Singled Out. I read the new novel by Tracy Chevalier and it should go perfectly with it. Very good list!

    I must admit that I don’t read a lot of non-fiction anymore… I used to read a lot of historical non-fiction but it’s dropped off a lot.
    Good luck getting through all the new additions to the TBR!
