Nonfiction November is an annual celebration of Nonfiction. This year it is hosted by Julie (JulzReads), Sarah (Sarah’s Book Shelves), Katie (Doing Dewey), Rennie (What’s Nonfiction), and Kim (Sophisticated Dorkiness). The first prompt is today, and is hosted by Kim.
Week 1: (Oct. 29 to Nov. 2) – Your Year in Nonfiction (Kim @ Sophisticated Dorkiness):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?
Here’s an overview of the Nonfiction books I’ve read thus far this year. I usually get more read, but I’m a little behind this year!
My Favorite Nonfiction This Year – I’d say the best nonfiction book I read this year was Killers of the Flower Moon, by David Grann. It was an account of the Osage murders in Oklahoma in the 1920s. Tragic and fascinating. I would suggest it to anyone who reads general nonfiction or recent history.
Particular Topic that I Read More Of – Well, I read two each of these three subjects: Mental Health (American Psychosis and No One Cares About Crazy People), Incarceration (Incarceration Nations and Beyond These Walls – not pictured), and Scientology (Beyond Belief and Going Clear).
Nonfiction Book Recommended the Most – Lol. Sorry, I have no idea whether there’s any one book I suggest more often. I tend to suggest books based on people’s interest subjects.
What Do I Hope to Accomplish by Participating in Nonfiction November – I hope to find more bloggers to interact with
