2020 Nonfiction Reader Challenge: Monthly Spotlight #8

I’m delighted with the response to the inaugural Nonfiction Reader Challenge so far, and since sign-ups are open until December 1st, a few more may decide to join us during the year.

If you hadn’t yet noticed, I’ve created a permanent page for the challenge, you can CLICK HERE, or select the menu link at top left.

The Linky to add your review to can be found there. This new link will remain active for the rest for the year’s submissions. Look for the text in orange.

On the first Saturday of each month, I will be highlighting a handful of Linky submissions, but I encourage you to support all participants who have shared what they have been reading for the challenge. Give them a like, leave them a comment, share their posts on twitter, Facebook or instagram #2020ReadNonFic

 

In September…

 

Maya at Bookshelf Life strongly recommends The Twins of Auschwitz by Eva Mozes Kor. She found it to be an absolutely heart breaking story, but an important learning experience.

In Lucid Dreaming Made Easy – A Beginner’s Guide to Waking Up in Your Dreams by Charlie Morely, Tracey of Carpe Librum discovered, “… there’s sooooo much more to lucid dreaming and I’ve only been scratching the surface.”

To Sir With Love [by E.R.Braithwaite] is an inspiring and articulate true account of a man who rose above bitterness, dealt with his own arrogance and prejudice, and enabled a bunch of feral teenagers to embark on adult life with dignity and hope. A book well worth reading and a great story for a future (or present) teacher to immerse themselves in.” writes Carol from Journey-and-Destination

Anjana at Superfluous Reading read The Case of the Vanishing Blonde: And Other True Crime Stories by Mark Bowden. Of the six articles included, she preferred the ‘ straightforward investigative cases’

“There are stories in this examination of domestic abuse in Australia that will never leave my mind. They are horrific, and Hill’s telling of them is powerful. Some chapters stand out, in particular the section on Indigenous Australians.” Writes Kate of BooksAreMyFavouriteandBest about See What You Made Me Do by Jess Hill

    Not a huge NF fan myself (something I am trying to rectify). Braithwaite is amazing though, and very, very hard-hitting. Lucid Dreaming is also something that I’ve seen doing the rounds, so might pick that one up. Thanks for spotlighting these.

    To Sir With Love is one of my favorite old movies but I’ve never read the book! I’m glad to hear it’s a good one. I really want to read See What You Made Me Do. For anyone looking for something similar, No Visible Bruises was also excellent.

    I’ve been forgetting to link up my reviews! I think I am caught up now except for some Bible study books. The Twins of Auschwitz sounds like it would be heartbreaking just from the title. I watched the movie To Sir with Love, but I either didn’t know or had forgotten it was based on a book. It sounds like one I’d like to look into.
