I’ve been taking part in Nonfiction November 2019 again this year. It has now come to the end and this is the final topic!
The host this week is Rennie @ What’s Nonfiction who says ‘It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book’.
It certainly has been an amazing week in which I’ve read other book bloggers’ posts about many nonfiction books, most of them books that were completely new to me. These are just a few of the many that caught my imagination.
From Helen @She Reads Novels
- The Wicked Boy by Kate Summerscale – Victorian true crime
- Decoding the Bayeux Tapestry by Arthur C. Wright – looks at the often-ignored images in the margins of the Tapestry and discusses what they add to our knowledge of the period.
From Rennie@ What’s Nonfiction
- Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard – This book was everything – philosophy, biology, meditations, metaphysics, and poetically written.
- Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert Massie
From Kate @ Books Are My Favourite and Best
- The Arsonist: A Mind on Fire by Chloe Hooper – true crime about the Australian bushfire in 2009
1947: Where Now Begins by Elizabeth Asbrink – a year that defined the modern world, intertwining historical events around the globe with key moments from the author’s personal history. I already have 1946: the Making of the Modern World by Victor Sebestyen, so it’ll be interesting to compare these books.
Many thanks to all the hosts of this year’s Nonfiction in November
