Hello everyone! Nonfiction November is once again upon us. I think it’s been a couple years since I’ve participated, but I do love nonfiction so I always look forward to it! Here is the prompt for this week’s post:
Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions – What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? Do you have a particular topic you’ve been attracted to more this year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
I’ve read only a handful of nonfiction books this year — less than usual — but I’ll run through them quickly here.
Surviving the White Gaze, This Common Secret, and I’m Afraid of Men were all hard-hitting memoirs. I read all three for school but got to choose two of them myself; regardless I’m glad I read all of them! Glamour Magic was sort of a spiritual/self-help read that I enjoyed, even if I thought it was imperfect. Investing Is Your Superpower was a little girlboss but still super helpful for learning some more about how money works and how to make decisions.
I am in the midst of another self-help book that I’ll probably share later. I do have some more memoirs on my TBR to read soon — memoirs tend to be my favorite kind of nonfiction. I’m hoping Nonfiction November will help to jumpstart my nonfic reading again! I’ve definitely been struggling with it a bit this year.
