IN JANUARY

[GEOGRAPHY]

From Tracey at Carpe Librum ,“Adrift in Melbourne by Robyn Annear is highly recommended for history lovers, non fiction readers and those with even a passing interest in Australian history and the evolution of Melbourne, Victoria.”

+++

[WILD ANIMALS]

Of The Puma Years by Laura Coleman, Curly Geek at The Book Stop writes, “I loved this memoir about Coleman’s time working in a wildlife sanctuary in Bolivia. It was completely different from anything I’ve read before, and I enjoy reading about people who do things that I’ll never have the courage to do.”

+++

[MEDICAL MEMOIR]

“This medical memoir by Dr. James Cole drops you into the hectic and unpredictable life of a trauma surgeon… is a fast paced and realistic accounting.” says Tina of Turn the Page about Trauma: My Life as an Emergency Surgeon by Dr. James Cole

 

+++

[CELEBRITY]

Mary of Bibliographic Manifestations says of Blowing the Bloody Doors Off: And Other Lessons in Life by Michael Caine, “I enjoyed the book; Caine’s writing style is very chatty and appealing.”

+++

[POPULAR SCIENCE]

In Praise of Walking by Shane O’Mara, “…was a bit harder work than I was expecting as there was a lot more Science detail than I had anticipated…. Mainly though I did enjoy it and found it an interesting and informative read.” writes Janette of Wicked Witch’s Blog.

    I’ve struggled with non-fiction in the past. I think my way into it would probably be through biographies/autobiographies.
    I hope these books were all winners for you.

    I love this idea! I host a reading challenge, too, and I’ve been wondering what I could do to make it more fun for people. May I borrow this idea?

    Thanks I’m joining in …. I need to read more nonfiction this year … as I usually only read fiction. This challenge is good incentive.

    Thanks for spotlighting Trauma! I have been slow visiting blogs lately and playing on Twitter. Maybe I can get my blogging mojo back soon!
