Nonfiction November 2018: My Year in Nonfiction
It's time for another Nonfiction November and I'm thrilled to be joining in again this year, thanks to hosts Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves, Katie at Doing Dewey, Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness, Julz at Julz Reads, and Rennie at What’s Nonfiction? When I find interesting new (or new-to-me) nonfiction reads, I always think, "perfect for Nonfiction November!" The trick is remembering which books those are, but I think I have a pretty solid lineup for this month.
Here's my year of nonfiction, so far; if you'd like to join in, head over to Sophisticated Dorkiness to read other posts and share your reads.
My Year of Nonfiction
As of today, I’ve completed 18 nonfiction titles; that is roughly 17.8% of my total reading, up from 16% at this time last year; only five of these have been physical books, since I most enjoy nonfiction audio book listening during my commute and while running.
While most of my nonfiction reading continues to consist of memoirs, I feel like my selections have been a little more diverse this year; they are tough to categorize, but how could I resist a book on Bachelor Nation?
Favorite Nonfiction of 2018 (so far)
Of the nonfiction I’ve read this year, I have truly enjoyed them all; this is a tough pick!
I’ll narrow it down to these two, since they are completely different and I loved them both:
The Line Becomes A River by Francisco Cantú (very timely!)
Let Your Mind Run by Deena Kastor (my all-time running hero!)
Most Recommended Nonfiction
Without a doubt, it is Educated by Tara Westover; if you’ve already read this one, you know how tough it is to stop thinking and talking about it!
This Year, I Haven’t Read Enough Of…
As usual, I seem to be most attracted to memoirs but find myself wishing I made more time for narrative nonfiction! At least I’m consistent, right?
This Year, I’m Hoping To…
I’ve got a pretty decent stack of nonfiction titles that I’ve been saving up for this event, so I hope I can read several of them this month and tackle the rest before the end of the year. I am also looking forward to discovering new titles through others who are participating this month; my audio book list can always use an injection of new ideas!
