Stargazer at For Book Lovers and Random People introduced me to the concept of Nonfiction November last year, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.
Recently I discovered that it’s hosted by bloggers at What’s Non-Fiction?, so I thought I’d take part in an effort to read more nonfiction and find some new nonfiction books to add to my TBR list.
Each week has a theme and is hosted by different bloggers. Week one was hosted by Julie @ Julz Reads, who encouraged me to look back at my year in nonfiction and answer the following questions:
What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year?
I’m ashamed to say that I’ve read only five nonfiction books since last November. Shocking, I know!
My favorite was Eerie Edmonton by Rhonda Parrish, about haunted buildings in the titular Canadian city.
Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year?
Yes, books about Big Foot, but as regards non-fiction. No, can’t say that I have.
What nonfiction book have you recommended the most?
I’m not sure.
What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
To read more nonfiction books! I’d like to get my number up to ten at least.
I’ve writing books on TBR list for this month, as well as dog training books, so I’m hoping to learn lots of practical skills on both of those topics. I’ve some autobiographies that I’ve wanted to read for ages, but I also have true ghost stories and spooky tales, because I couldn’t go a month without horror. I will probably squeeze in an animal book as well. I love reading about people who share their lives with animals.
Are you taking part in Nonfiction November? Any favorite nonfiction books you’d recommend? Let me know in the comments.
