New to my TBR

It’s the final week of Nonfiction November and the last prompt is about books that I’ve added to my To Be Read pile.

I must confess that I’ve done this whole Nonfiction November thing wrong. I didn’t plan out my books in advance, I didn’t write my prompt posts properly, I posted links in all the wrong places and I spent hardly any time checking out other blogs.

I’m a bad book blogger. Mea culpa.

So the only nonfiction books I’ve added to my TBR list were recommended to me at the start of the month by my good friends and ridiculously supportive fellow bloggers, Priscilla and Joe.


This is a book about the author’s writing and the craft in general. I don’t know much about it, but there is always something to be gleaned from reading writers on writing and it sounds interesting.

Priscilla Bettis called it “Ramblings of an artistic genius” in her blog review .

Thanks for the recommendation, Priscilla. I look forward to reading it.

Check it out on Amazon.


Ok, I bought this book because Joe recommended it to me. Apart from the cool title and my disappointment that the author’s name wasn’t Granny, I knew nothing about it.

After reading the description on Amazon, I want to dive right into this ‘wrenching exploration of evil’. It sounds amazing.


Have you added any nonfiction books to your TBR list this month? Tell me all about them in the comments.

  1. Aw, thanks for the shout-out.:-) I hope you like Dillard’s book. I am FINALLY getting on with my last nonfiction of the month, The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson. It’s about Churchill, and the hubster and I are buddy-reading it. I didn’t know Churchhill was such a . . . character. Whoa, what a strong personality he had!

  2. 😂 Sry, I couldn’t help laughing at your description of your participation in Nonfiction November. The thing is, it doesn’t matter! The important part is participate and – hopefully – have fun! The David Grann book sounds fab!

    1. Haha! So glad it amused you 😁. Thank you for introducing me to Nonfiction November. I’ll be better prepared for next year and maybe we will be able to do a nonfiction buddy read during the year and post about it next November? Hint hint!

  3. Both books seem excellent. Esp. Flower Moon because it has been recommended by Kate Atkinson. Have you tried Atkinson’s other works? Including that wonderful BBC show based on her works, Case Histories?

  4. It can be really hard to balance the social bits of reading events with the actual reading and blogging! I did a lot more visiting blogs this year, which I enjoyed, but probably read fewer nonfiction books than in a normal month. Both of your TBR additions sound really good, especially the second. Thanks for joining us this month 🙂
