If you have similar reading tastes to me, than you probably read basically no non-fiction. Personally, I read as an escape and to not think about the stress of ‘real life’ thus why I mainly read a variety of fiction books. Since I’m a ‘grown up’ now, I do think it’s important to mix in some non-fiction reads into my daily life. Now throughout the year, I tend to mix in some good true-crime novels. I’m a huge true crime junkie and while the subject matter can be dark, I feel that I learn a lot from them.
But true crime isn’t the only non-fiction worth reading, and I try my hardest to spend at least half of my reading time in November, reading non-fiction that is not true-crime.
This year for Non-fiction November 2020, I’m planning on reading a few non-fiction books I’ve picked up from Book of the Month over the past year! Here are the non-fiction books I’m hoping to read this month, if you’d like to join me!
- Notes on a Silencing by Lacy Crawford. I’m reading this for the virtual bookclub I host on instagram @letsreadrantrepeat. Our monthly discuss will take place on Sunday November 15th at 7:00pm CST on Instagram LIVE! We will also be doing an interview with author Lacy Crawford, Monday November 16th at 8pm CST on Instagram LIVE as well and hope to see ya’ll there!
- Big Friendship by Ann Friedman & Aminatou Sow.
- After the Eclipse by Sarah Perry
