It's Week 2 of Nonfiction November. Our host this week is Sarah from Sarah's Book Shelves and we're talking about book pairings:
It can be a “If you loved this book, read this!” or just two titles that you think would go well together. Maybe it’s a historical novel and you’d like to get the real history by reading a nonfiction version of the story.
Middlemarch by George Eliot
My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead
My literary pairing this year combines a beloved classic with a modern blend of memoir, author biography, and literary criticism.
When I first read Middlemarch in 2014, my intention was to follow up immediately with My Life in Middlemarch. In actuality, nearly three years passed before I began listening to Mead's book... and it might have been even longer without added incentive from an audible BOGO sale.
My Life in Middlemarch is a wonderful, well-written book. I learned a lot about George Eliot, thoroughly enjoyed Mead's discussion of the great novel, and found her personal story interesting, too.
For Middlemarch fans, My Life in Middlemarch is truly a must read!
