Ok, so this post is obviously really late, but sickness and life got in the way (as they do) and I totally missed posting my Week 5 Recap for Nonfiction November last year (here is my Week 4, Week 3, and Week 2 contributions). But I did want to get this out there as these books (and even some new-to-me bloggers) are still tops on my “to buy and to-be-read” list. I plan on starting Gretchen McCulloch’s book this weekend.
So firing up the old blogging way back time machine. . . going back in 3. . . 2. . . 1. . .
The guiding post from the discussion’s host (Nov. 25 to 29):
“Rennie from What’s Nonfiction is here for a second year – New to My TBR : 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!”
By far the one book I saw on sooooo many lists this year was Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. It’s one I’ve seen in bookstores (I mean how can you forget that cover), but never picked up. Just based on the frequency it was mentioned, it’s going in the pile. I mean you can’t get this many book bloggers on a Mr. Linky and be lead astray can you?
Moving on, these are the other books that piqued my interest over the past few weeks. I am looking forward to working though this list:
- Lives of the Monster Dogs via Maphead
- Tamed via Kate Vane
- Underland via Doing Dewey
- Everybody Behaves Badly: The True Story Behind Hemingway’s Masterpiece The Sun Also Rises via Still An Unfinished Person
- The Woman Who Fooled the World: Belle Gibson’s Cancer Con, and the Darkness at the Heart of the Wellness Industry via What’s Non-Fiction
- Bookworms Anonymous: A Non-Traditional Book Club for All Readers by Jan Stafford Kellis (2014) via Orange County Readers
- The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature, and Fowl Obsession by Mark Obmascik via Reader Buzz
- Because Internet: Understanding the New Rules of Language by Gretchen McCulloch via There There Read This
- The Man Who Climbs Trees by James Aldred via Books Please
Thanks to all the bloggers that participated in Nonfiction November in 2019. It really is a highlight every year. Such a diverse and cool group of book bloggers talking about topics and books from all over the world. I hope you found some good reads for yourself this November.
