Take a look back at your year of nonfiction and reflect on the following questions â€“ What was your favorite nonfiction read of the year? What nonfiction book have you recommended the most? What is one topic or type of nonfiction you havenâ€™t read enough of yet? What are you hoping to get out of participating in Nonfiction November?
So that’s 44 nonfiction books since January.
- 28 male authors and 17 female authors (Yes, one book had 2 authors.)Â Turns out I read way more male-authored nonfiction than I do male-authored fiction.
- 14 POC authors
- 2 authors with physical disabilities
- 5 were perfect for Foodies Read
I read the most memoirs — about 25 depending on how you define that.Â The topics are all so different that is hard to pick I favorite.Â I enjoyed them all.
I’ve recommended If At Birth You Don’t Succeed and Born a Crime the most.Â But seriously, there isn’t a single book on this list that I would steer anyone away from.Â It has been a really good nonfiction year for me.
There isn’t a type of nonfiction that I’m looking to read more often.Â I do like to find books set in parts of the world that I haven’t read a lot about before.Â That’s why there are 2 South American books in October.Â I picked them based on setting and they are both lovely.Â The Wonder Trail also has a lot of other book suggestions too.
The thing I love best about Nonfiction November is getting so many recommendations.Â I can’t wait to see what everyone else is reading.
