Nonfiction November is wrapping up this week with a look at books added to our reading lists.
Week 5: (Nov. 26 to 30) – New to My TBR (hosted by Katie @ Doing Dewey): It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book.
Let's begin with Nonfiction titles I've read this month... all were recommended by fellow bloggers and/or Nonfiction November participants:
Musings of a Literary Wanderer, this was a 5-star read and a nonfiction favorite this year. My brief revere is here.
by Trevor Noah, narrated by the authorPlenty of bloggers list this among their nonfiction favorites. It's been in my audible library for quite some time and is my book club's December selection. I can't wait for the discussion... it should be a good one.
by Kelly Corrigan, narrated by the authorThis book was mentioned by so many bloggers in their "My Year in Nonfiction" posts, including Susie at Novel Visits, Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves, and Melissa Firman among others. It was a very good audio, but keep the tissues handy.
Lift by Kelly Corrigan, narrated by the authorThis short book (under two hours on audio) was recommended by my friend Les at Coastal Horizons. I listened to it immediately after finishing Tell Me More. That may have reduced its impact, but Lift was still a worthwhile listening experience.
by Elinor Lipman, narrated by the authorI've been a fan of Lipman's fiction for years, but never knew she wrote nonfiction until Penny at Literary Hoarders mentioned this title. I immediately downloaded it from my library via hoopla... loved every essay!
by Clemantine Wamariya and Elizabeth WeilClemantime Wamariya was just six years old when she, along with her fifteen-year-old sister, fled their Rwandan village, spent another six years in refugee camps and wandering around Africa, before finally landing in the United States. This book tells her story. I learned about it earlier this month fromTara at Running 'n Reading and Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves.
