Nonfiction November 2020: Week 1


It’s Nonfiction November!

I enjoyed participating in Nonfiction November so much last year I started a Nonfiction Reader Challenge in 2020 to ensure I’d keep reading nonfiction during the year. I’ve read 24 nonfiction books since December 2019, not quite as many as I hoped but a respectable amount.

Eleven of what I read were to meet the 12 categories of my challenge (I still need to read the last one). There has been a reasonable amount of variety though it’s weighted to true crime. All of what I read were ARC’s provided for review.

I have three books I’d nominate as favourites:

Here are the others I’ve read:

I’m looking forward browsing your posts, and adding your recommendations to my WTR list.

I have seven books on my nonfiction reading schedule for this month, though I’m hoping I might be able to squeeze a few more in.

I’ll be posting each Sunday during Nonfiction November.

    I love how varied your nonfiction reading is! I’ve only read Talking to Strangers, Great Pretender, and The Cold Vanish of these. I have a copy of Murder, Misadventure that I really want to get to, and you’ve got me interested in Dear Life, Corrupt Bodies and maybe Boys & Sex. (Haha, that sentence is unintentionally very funny). Excited to see what you’ll read this month, you always find such fascinating books!

    I haven’t read ANY of these. RIP my TBR list, ha! The Great Pretender is actually already on my list. This post is great because I lean heavily toward memoirs, and you have a lot of other types of nonfiction listed here. It’ll help me venture out!

    Inheritance was the one on everyone’s list last year that I swore I was going to read ASAP and here we are a year later and I still haven’t read it!

    It sounds like you’ve had a great year in nonfiction! I’m glad you’ve been hosting a challenge too. I’ve pretty much given up challenges this year, but it makes me happy that there’s a nonfiction challenge available for people 🙂

    I’ve read Peggy Orenstein’s other books and I’d like to read this one. I’m also interested in Inheritance. Thanks for the reviews!

    I don’t read much true crime so it’s interesting to get some book suggestions here!
