I love Nonfiction November because I learn about so many interesting new books. My favorite part is “Be the Expert” week, where bloggers suggest favorite nonfiction on a particular topic (my post here on books relating to U.S. immigration).
This week’s topic is what I added this year to my TBR (hosted by Rennie of What’s Nonfiction):
How We Fight For Our Lives by Saeed Jones, a memoir about a young, gay, black man from the South. It’s getting rave reviews. Suggested by The Paperback Princess.
Braving It: A Father, A Daughter, and an Unforgettable Journey Into the Alaskan Wild by James Campbell. Alaska is such a beautiful place and I love reading about wilderness journeys since I don’t get out in it too much myself. Recommended by Musings of a Literary Wanderer.
Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death, and Hard Truths in a Northern City by Tanya Talaga. About seven indigenous youth who died in Ontario, and efforts to address the human rights violations in Canada. Recommended by Reading Ladies.
Hole in My Life by Jack Gantos. Recommended by Maphead’s Book Blog. A book by a children’s author about the drug deal that sent him to prison. This one will help me finish up Read Harder 2019 (it may not be a book written in prison but I’m going to call it close enough).
And two books on the more practical side:
No Dig Organic Home & Garden: Grow, Cook, Use and Store Your Harvest by Charles Dowding. I have a tiny little garden, mostly in pots, where I grow as many vegetables and herbs as I can each year. It’s something I always want to learn more about. Recommended by LouLou Reads.
And finally, Marie Kondo’s The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, recommended by Unruly Reader. Because this winter I really hope to declutter some of my house.
Thanks to the hosts and participating bloggers of Nonfiction November for adding to my TBR list!
